We’ve just posted a full rundown of how the re-imagined talent system will look for Priests in Dragonflight.

Once you’ve had a chance to consider it fully, please feel free to answer the following questions.

How do you feel the new talent system fits the Priest class overall?

If you have any concerns, what are your biggest concerns?

What about the new design do you like the most?

Do you feel like this will make Priests play differently than they do now?

Thank you!

Idol of Y’Shaarj will receive a new tooltip as we get closer to Dragonflight. In the meantime though, here’s a breakdown of what it currently does:

If your target is…

Above 80% health? → Pride

  • You and your Shadowfiend deal increased damage while Shadowfiend is active.

Enraged? → Anger

  • Purges the enraged effect and increases your Haste while Shadowfiend is active.

Stunned? → Despair

  • You generate Insanity while Shadowfiend is active.

Feared? → Fear

  • You and your Shadowfiend deal increased damage and do not break fear effects while Shadowfiend is active.

No conditions met? → Violence

  • Duration of Shadowfiend is increased.

The priority order is:
Anger/Despair/Fear → Pride → Violence

As with everything in the talent tree, these effects are subject to change. I hope this clears up some confusion. We’ll continue monitoring the community’s feedback and we look forward to sharing more Dragonflight details in the future!
