By the stars, some Priest love coming to the talent tree. Oh well, too bad I re-rolled a holy paladin. Eyonix gives a breath of hope to priests by sharing some of what he witnessed in a discussion with the developers for what is to come in Wrath of the Lich King expansion. This is not an official announcement and isn’t written on stone. Thanks to WorldofWar.net (Incgamers).
Eyonix: “It’s by no means an announcement.
Yesterday I took an extensive review of what we have in store for discipline (though it will see many changes between now and release) in Wrath of the Lich King. For quite some time I’ve been providing the designers with feedback from the community, as well as my own thoughts and ideas. Though it may not always be apparent every member of our team works very hard communicating all aspects of player feedback.
With that being said, the current iteration of the tree literally blew my mind. I was in the class designers office in under a minute discussing the changes like I was a nine year old child who was given a sneak peak of an entire set of unreleased Garbage Pail Kids cards. I can’t say much but I will say this:
The tree will stand on its own two feet.
It will be viable in PvE.
You will notice impact from player feedback
As for Focused Will (talent tree) Eyonix reports the following:
Eyonix: Feedback was read, gathered and the designers are fully aware of all that you’ve provided. As a result, we’re making an adjustment to the talent so instead of seeing this morning’s version of focused will in the next PTR push, you’ll see:
“After taking a critical hit you gain the Focused Will effect, reducing all damage taken by 1/3/5% and increasing healing effects on you by 4/7/10% for 6 seconds. Stacks up to 3 times.”
