This is what annoys me. You only need 1 priest per raid, and if you have a shadow priest, the holy priest might as well sit out for an extra paladin, because while prayer of mending is nice, it's not that big of a deal compared to shaman chain heals and their totem buffs/bloodlust. I'm not going to pretend my improved divine spirit is worth losing more blessings for the whole raid and another aura for another party. Our guild only has one blood elf paladin at 70, so I won't have to give up my spot for paladin stacking for perhaps a week or two longer. But being a min/maxer myself, what exactly can stacking priests do? Shackle? And what of future raid content? Holy priests barely heal as well as a druid, and holy paladins heal better (more HPM/HPS/longetivity), period. Then people wonder why priests are dropping off left and right from the game.
/kicks self in head for not rolling a paladin.
My guild takes 3 priests. 2 holy/disc and 1 shadow. The extra shackles really are nice, makes moroes a total joke at least. We are horde though and have yet to have a pally in Kara with us, even though we have a 70 keyed pally, he just got his key and I;ve not seen him online since =/.
Is a DPS warrior still viable in Karazhan? I feel like they are taking up space for a better dps class or a druid who can tank better and dps better. We have a warrior now who wants to go fury but to me it is a wasted spot.
Bear tank is very nice for a fury war, the extra 5% crit is not to be sniffed at! Also its another short cooldown interrupt. If he is an exceptional fury war he will out dps your good rogues still also.
We have a MS/prot war as our offtank. Its useful to have people able to switch in and out of dps/tank roles. However if you always have 1 prot warr and 1 feral druid, you won;t need an extra offtank.
