1. glyph of mass dispell
2. glyph of dark bingingd
3. open slot, pref mind spike/fade.
t1. phyfiend vs void tendrills!
a) phyfiend is generally stronger except for the very few exception teams in 2s/3s. For example it becomes pointless and less effective verse a warrior/dk in 2s because the game won't last very long and roots well be far better for set up and survival when a warrior can zerk and a dk and lich fears.
t2. phantasm is the only option!
a) although body and soul and maybe feathers might look good they're not. yes is pvp getting distance and being able to kite is key. what good is a speed movement buff of 60% when you have a constant snare effect on you of at least 30-60%. keep in mind the speed buff doesn't cancel it out like 60% for 60% verse 60% of that 60%. and phantasm provides more then snare/root outs but as well as a 3 sec self smoke bomb.A GOOD SPRIEST IS HARD TO CC, A SPRIEST THAT ISN'T CC'ED IS A HEALER THAT ISN'T CC'ED! Because of Mass dispells and off heals!!! key for phantasm and guise!!!
t3. from Darkness vs mindbender!
a) from darkness is very strong in a long game in which the spriest gets a lot of free time to cast and control the paste of the game. keep in mind the darkness procs do effect the internal cd of divine insight, but in most cases its still more overall dmg. How ever in a long game when the spriest has little to no time to free cast it is MUCH HARDER to keep enough VT's flowing to keep up with mana, in which this case mindbender is far superior if cd is managed well.
t4. spectral guise and nothing else!
a) yes desperate prayer and a "cheat death" look good but once again they're not! "dp" on avg without a battle masters only heals for 30% based hp which comes out to about 1.5 flash heals and the cheat death bubble is scaled no more then 110% of a pw:s!
b) so why spectral guise? not because its the better of the three evils but because its simply too strong! being able to gise multiple cc including stuns and deep freezes! but also making it harder to cc you by guising incoming cc when you don't have a fade up! A GOOD SPRIEST IS HARD TO CC, A SPRIEST THAT ISN'T CC'ED IS A HEALER THAT ISN'T CC'ED! Because of Mass dispells and off heals!!! key for phantasm and guise!!!
t5. divine insight
, a lot more to come but had to cut it short off to class and work!
