Shadow priests are the most annoying to fight, hunters aren't as annoying because I can cure everything they throw at me, priests though, grr I hate shadow DoTs

Common mistake...We have only 1 dot but if speced right it can do very good damage. With the right sequence of spells I can do 1100 damage with my dot over 24 sec for 350 or so mana (that's not the highest rank btw since I'm only 55). Racial spells on the other hand is a different story although as a human I don't have any dots.

I had a priest mind blast my priest last night for 1030 damage. Most I seen from a single hit from a priest.

Has anybody done the earth tremors quest in the badlands? 50 elite I believe it is, if so how the hell do you get past those 2 56 elite dragons guarding the earth stone :p

We had some fun last night pulling about 15 elite dragons while we grabbed the other stones for the end part of the quest.

Probably Shadow Form + Shadow damage armor. The Mind Blast does like 650 by default. Add in critical potential. I could see it happening

Never mind about the dragon question I just learned they were the bosses and somebody else tried to summon them and died :p

Vamp, the two dragons are level 50 elites and they are the objective of your quest. They spawn once the Earth Stone is activated, and if they're already there, it's because someone else activated the stone and got killed. :)

I'd find a few high level players to help you out. You can pull them individually as well, which makes the fight a bit easier than it looks. And the armor you get for doing this quest is totally worth the effort.

Yeah I'm about to hit level 43 myself, last night we had no idea what those two huge dragons were so I pulled them on my mount while my guild mate checked out the stone, then she pulled them and I had a gander at it. :D

I think once I hit 45 our usual tank group will get the job done, that's right we do all tank groups at the moment in instances, cloth wearers slow us down. Two Paladins and three Warriors kicked the crap out of the Scarlet Monastary and Razorfen downs :D

I did it fine with a 60 pally tanking. Pull em one at a time and you're good with a 55+ tank and healer :)

Me a 60 rogue and a 42 rogue and a 35 priest and at 39 priest did scarlet monistary 3 times Wednesday. Even at my lowbie lvl I can turn realiation on and take out a 34 elite no problem. That helps if we get a agro from our priest when he runs around like a girl when he is tagged. We say STOP RUNNING! you are agroinig the whole place. He says they are on me. I say yes the are and it is your fault now just sit there and dies. We will rez you, you schmuck! Instead he runs around and we all almost get taken out but it worked out so no harm I guess.

LOL. Me, (now 58) my pally friend, and a lvl 36 rogue did scarlet monastery + ALL of the bosses. Me and the pally did razorfen when i was lvl 47. Me and my guildie (lvl 57 warrior) run through mauradon with a pally and a hunter.

I rarely go with healers, but when i do, full health is great :D

Priests piss me off, they care more about causing damage than they do about healing your group. In the middle of a instance you want to have a healer but no they have to stay in shadowform. Then on raids they run off looking for a level 20 to mind control and gank while we are going toe to toe with about 20 bloody horde (4 of us).

Way to go on generalising priests. Only the noob priests care more about damage in an instance or raid or just grouping in general. Sounds like you are one of the people that finds out that a priest is shadow spec and says no to them being the healer for the group. If a priest is not playing the role of healer in a group then boot them it's as simple as that but don't generalise us all. The majority of priests know that their role is going to be to just stare at life bars all day long while you actually enjoy the game so be happy we are out there. My priest is 56 btw.

Uh. Priests Mind Control level goes up each time they level. WTf are you on about? If your inviting priests that you do not know and dont clearly explain to them that you want a healer and not DPS. Thats also your own fault. Priests can play 2 roles. And just because not all of them play healbots doesnt make them "suck". Its up to the group and the priest to clearly explain their intentions when going on an instance.

It sounds to me. Like you have generalised the class and simply dont understand the very diverse roles a priest can take. And dont complain about aggro. Complain to Blizzard. Heals generate alot of aggro. Your actually lucky to have a Priest in your group when it comes to aggro because no other class has an aggro reduction ability thats as effective as Priest. Actuallly. Aggro control takes 2 people cooperating.And I'm willing to bet the fact that your losing aggro is half way your fault as well. Damn warriors who think they are the only ones who can play their class and dont know a damned thing about aggro management.

See? I can generalise too. ;p

I understand the priest completely, it doesn't stop you guys from sucking and losing half your health from a butter knife :p

I have yet to see a priest go after a decent level horde on my server, they run off even after we tell them to stay and heal to find a low level they can gank. Also anybody who groups with me is priviledged because I hold aggro like nobody else....now if only those lazy priests would heal me so I can continue to hold it :thumbsup:

And don't get me started on two priests mind controlling two elites in a instance...jesus christ. I prefer going with paladins, they take damage and they heal. :p

Heh.. Priests are the ultimate 1v1 PVP Class. You put them in a group PVP Enviroment. They are the worse PVP Class. This is because a Priest does not want attention. And groups will attack them with everything they got immediately once a priest is seen in groups.

I find it funny your complaining about Priests being unable to go after high level PC. Priests are one of the most effective 1v1 PVP Classes. And warriors die so quickly to them its not even funny. Go read the forum boards and see al "Nerf Priest" Cries because they are so bloody good at PVP. Personally I find your opinion biased and completely uneducated. It sounds to me like you group with idiots. :rolleyes:

I still love playing my priest. It's a common thing for people to prefer paladins over priests at the lower levels. That somehow changes as you get higher.

Anyone here on the test server and playing in Dire Maul? It's too easy... I was hoping that it would be far more of a challenge. Still, my new devout armor looks sweet.

By the way.. with the improved inner fire talent, a priest has about as much armor as a leather wearer. A priest can take far more of a beating than any other cloth class, by using heals and shielding and inner fire. Go talk to mages if you wanna complain about cloth wearers being killed by a butter knife ;).

Funny how you turn this into a "OMFG PRIESTS ARE TEH ROXX0RS NUB" conversation when I was saying how much I dislike priests due to my own personal experiences, but sure if me poking a bit of fun at your electronic character threatens your penis in some way I shall help.

OMFG PRIESTS ROXX0RS TEH B0XX0RS!!111!!!1 LOLZ!!1

My e-pen0s in no way feels threatened. I just felt you were portraying priests in a rather incorrect light giving an overall bad impression to people of the class. This isnt EQ . Priests have many useful abilities in groups. Shadow line is just a few of them. Most priests I have met dont even bother with Mind Control. It sucks. It usually lasts a half a second. And its required to be channeled so its not worth casting. Except under rare circumstances you have another healer and need some form of crowd control.

The Power Word: SHield line absolutely makes mages decimate creatures with their AOES. With just 8 Discipline talents a priest can fire one off every 15 seconds. Honestly, I'm surprised you can find alot of priests who like to sit back and watch health bars. Because it is by far the most boring aspect of WoW. Sure I'll do it. The few instances where its exciting to keep a bunch of people alive are offset by 95% of the time when your just droning heals for people in boring instances. Are you even doing high end instances? I dont see how if your priest is taking shadow form.

vampireuk
03-14-05, 09:00 AM
we are doing 40+ instances at the moment since our group is 40+ the priest gets a bollocking whenever we find out he is in shadow form and not healing. To be honest if a priest doesn't want to heal in a group he should have picked a mage. Priests are very useful if the people in our group decide to play them correctly and don't screw around, otherwise they just slow our group up. Mind control is funny to watch but in a instance it gives the priest a insane amount of aggro that I have to pull off them, usually after one taunt it goes right back to attacking him. I just don't have a good impression of priests at the moment :p

When it comes to "control" of a crowd I generally do that, the rest attack me while the rest of the group concentrates on one at a time as I buff the group and sunder the enemy, while occasionally throwing a whirlwind or two in there. :D

Ugh, I don't know where you got the impression that priests suck, vamp - it's almost retarded to go into a 45+ instance without one (unless you have a high level escort). Sure, you can *manage* with a Pally but a good Priest is by far the keystone in any instance. Zul'farrak and Maraudon would have been practically impossible without a priest and later on in the raid instances they are required.

Like I said, this really only applies once you start doing high level instances and areas, like 47+. Besides, speaking of class roles, it sounds like you want to be meat shield and DPS at the same time. Most people prefer warriors to stay in DS and spam Sunder and Taunt since their DPS is mostly mediocre compared to rogues and mages later on.

vampireuk
03-14-05, 09:44 AM
And all those assumptions are based on what? Whirlwind is a great way of keeping the attention of the group by causing damage to 4 of them, I do a lot of stance shifting to use whatever keeps aggro the best. If a taunt fails I switch to combat and use mocking blow. Trust me this works, I rarely ever lose aggro from the attacking mobs. I do enough damage in defence stance to keep me happy and keep wearing down the mob.

Now if people wish to engage the little section of their brain that is required for actually reading (do it!). You will see I said my impression of priests is not good because of past experiences and I acknowledged they are useful if played correctly. As for Zul'farrak the only time the priest was needed was at the pyramid, and even then it was a massacre(for the mobs).

So to recap, priest = good if played correctly, crap if not. And I have been frustrated by priests screwing around too often. As for "keystone" pretty much every class is the key in a well balanced group, without a couple of tanks the instance will be over fairly quickly.

Now imagine yourself as the meatshield in a group, holding the aggro while the others wear down one at a time. Several elites beating the hell out of you....and the priest does not heal. Would that not annoy you ever so slightly? ;)
