Why do all the decisions in my life come down to cute versus functional?

I really wanted to play a goblin because they are super cute and I like the personality. But my healing choices with them are shaman and priest.  I like shaman, but its output is lackluster and I know that I’m not enough of a superstar to compensate.

Priest… well I used to play a priest.  And I liked it. And I’m good at it.1  However, the changes (and not-changes!) to priest are displeasing to me.2

Should I list my whines?  Oh sure, why not.

Feathers on the ground.  That’s the solution for getting out of the bad.  You know what my solution is?  People should move their fucking characters and get out of the bad.  If they don’t see the bad seeping into their own ankles they sure as shit aren’t going to see a feather on the ground and use it to escape (since apparently they aren’t looking at the ground, which is the entire problem).

Thank the all powerful atheismo for rocket boots.  Also Glyph of Restored faith.  That’s right, I won’t be saving your ass.  You’ll be saving mine. Thanks!3

Weaving in DPS.  This shit again?  Sigh.  And now the dps doesn’t even do reasonable healing, it’s just a side chore to do in your copious spare time.  Because healers have so much time to piddle around with dps.

That rules out discipline.  Srs.

Weakened Soul.  This is nothing new, and I’m not sure how else one would limit shielding, but it’s a huge pain in the ass.  It means that stacking disc priests is hard, and body & soul for getting out of bad purposes is unworkable.  Oh wait, I forgot, feathers.

Reason #2 why discipline is not working for me.

 CC “choices.”  So now I can’t have psychic scream and mind control at the same time?  that’s bullshit right there.  How the hell am I going to fear someone and THEN mind control him off a cliff?  Spoiling all my FUN, Blizzard!

That dumbass shadowfiend remains.  Seriously, I hope they improved the AI on that, because mine was always wandering off and getting me no mana – but bringing me some new and exciting friends who wanted to make my acquaintance by biting my face off.

The Lolwell.  I have no doubt that it is actually useful now.  Still, I find it amusing that it took how many years to get it to be not-sucktastic.

But wait, there’s a glyph that reverts the lightwell to its former version that people are supposed to click.  Which they never did.  I’m laughing so hard right now.

 In conclusion…  I say that I can deal with disgusting troll feet and be a druid.

  1.  Shut up, I totally am
  2. Granted some changes happened in pandaland, but I wasn’t here for pandaland, so all of them get lumped together.
  3. Now I just have to target someone who doesn’t stand in bad.  So thehusband is out.

  1. I hated weaving in DPS when it DID something … now it doesn’t? My priest’s raiding guild hasn’t raided for over a year, so I haven’t had first-hand knowledge of things that suck for priests as of yet. But yeah, that’s just ridiculous.

    I upgraded my shadowfiend, but is that a Shadow-only glyph now? The upgraded fiend was pretty intelligent, and lovely with the level of dps and mana regen she provided, but tended to ass-pull whatever was in the area – Hunter’s curse, without any recovery tools.

    I love that glyph. I have like 9 in stock, they totally do NOT sell. Whyyyy
