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
