Didn't i just told you spec means crap?
Becasue baseless ranting and raving is the way to prove something, I belive you, O crap, No I dont. Currently a holy spec heals about 10-15% more and has a effecenty higher than a shadow priest, so they can keep helaing, but untill the next patch, the best healers in the game are not holy or shadow, it is the mana manegment tools of a disc prist that rules as king. Can you heal in MC with no holy points? Yes, and do it well.
Untill the next patch, nothing but flash heal is used in the (Endgame), well heal wize, and beyond that, it is all about sheilds.
You hit level 60. Is that the end of your shadow priest?
My outlook, No, but realsiticly it should be the end of shadowform for anybody who is seirous about helping get somethign big done. Lets assume that for a moment you could out dps a rogue with epic gear, and never run OOM, even if you did doubble his dps, you are more helpfull by healing becasue by healing one tank, 3 rogues could be pounding on the mob safely(mostly). Even in my made up world where SP out did rouges it is not advantagous to DPS, when the healing is so needed, this gets a bug in me of why choose a healer class, If your Want is to DPS, Sure we "Melt Faces" but somebody else, "Melts whole bodies.
Defence of the Shadow priest, My warlock runs ZG with a shadowpriest, our group has a hard time holding on to mana eaters(for the bosses) and found it works better when we have one of each(lock for drain mana, priest for mana burn(improved by shadow spec) and a hunter ) and on days when we use a second lock instead of a our shadow priest, my DPS suffers, yes MINE. The shadow powers of our classes just complement each other so well.
