Vampiric Embrace PvP

Priest
What are the reasons that it changed. I barely use it only probably in instances,. Pvp wise almost never. It's another useless spell.
I agree, it's lost a lot of it's charm. It needs a shorter cd or some damage component.
Was a passive ability that gave very little healing return.
Is now an active ability that has the potential to heal quite a lot.

I don't think the spell is at fault here.

The spell itself is pretty decent but the cooldown is too long
Yeah I agree, I forget about it in instances pretty much. Sometimes I'll use it on a boss fight.

It's quite strong IMO. Only useless because you're not using it.
It should have a lower cd, it use to be a passive ability with quite good survivability, now I have to apply renew and get the dark binding glyph.
3 min cooldown, lasts 15 seconds - 50% single target damage heals Me and allies and it splits evenly. Whenever I'm a a bg it's almost impossible to use because of the CCs and timing, however I do believe it will benefit me somewhat in arenas,
Use with dispersion.
Edit: well, if you have dots on your targets.
If you're barely using VE, you either group with incredible tanks + healers that take things slow or you're doing things wrong.
Interesting, you've never died in pvp before?
Flash Heal overshadows it, in healing + also has no cd.

when your flash healing, you're not doing any damage.
Great spell, ridiculously long cooldown. Most people forget to use it.

Considering we're a DoT class still. Most of us are still doing damage.
a shorter CD would be very handy.... i use it a lot... and honestly. it came in handy lvl'ing up. solo'ing rare spawns and whatnot
Dot's are too short, VE is pretty useless to me by the time I need or consider wasting it for heals, stuff has gone down the drain already... pve its ok.
In short, Vampiric Embrace is great for raid healing. If you have 10 people, it puts out 500k+ healing, very similar to a Divine Hymn or Tranq. With the glyph, I believe this is a lot more.

Solo, it's not very useful, although it does help. In 5 mans, it helps provide some relief for healers.

Aenoam- Vampiric Touch is great for the mana return. I usually keep it up to make sure my mana stays up.

Instant 3 min cooldown
Fills you with the embrace of Shadow energy, causing you and your allies to be healed for 50% of any single-target Shadow spell damage you deal, split evenly between them. Lasts 15 sec.

I felt like I had to post the spell in order to clear any confusion. The more people in your group, the less healing u get since the healing is split evenly amongst everyone. I think blizz should make a glyph that turns the ability to passive, although that is a lot to ask and we should be happy with what we have. Also, the only confusion I have is the spell says "single target shadow damage" so that should exclude dots right? And lastly, a good example to use this spell is to have ur procs from fdcl and divine insight line up, pop ur trinket with shadowfiend (although I'm not sure shadowfiend adds to the healing, but I always pop it with my trinket) and burst the target down while its healing u. My 2 cents
I dunno if any of you have actually even used VE .... pop it .... pvp ..... most op !@#$ing ability ...
if you have dots on a target ... and you mindblast into procs of anything or you have DP up .... you will heal to full from half hp in under 2 seconds .... and it stays up for 15 seconds .... so your healing yourself and others while your dpsing .... also the healing spread only applies to other people in your party you still get healed for the full 50%
