I think I regret switching to my priest. I love playing her, and mogging her of course, but I am not great at her at all. Shadow is supposed to be god-mode dps, and I am mediocre at best. Granted, I do ok damage wise compared to my guild usually, but compared to logs I am not good.
It's been great to be ranged I guess, but the overall play style of shadow has been so hard for me. I'm either bottom of the pack, or middle, until execute range when I skyrocket. I think this is what bothers me the most. During mythic progression bosses the wipes until we get to execute range are rough. They hurt my soul!
Even though I struggle and the play style is rough...it's also the play style of it that's the best part for me. Previously while raiding, even during my hard core days, the only things that got my heart pumping were killing a new boss for the first time. That last 2 minutes when you think there actually is a chance you will down the boss...that is THE BEST. But, that being said, when I pop Surrender to Madness on my priest...my heart pumps the ENTIRE TIME. It's literally sit on the edge of my seat with more focus than I normally have...hoping that I don't lag, or I didn't pop S2M too soon (or too late), or that someone doesn't ruin my life with a mechanic that can kill me lol.
I AM TORN.
My paladin is easier, hands down. Less stress, I seem to excel at dodging stuff while in melee (ironic I know), and it's more fluid. All while being fairly consistent with my dps. Also, Honey is my baby...idk.
Priests got nerfed pretty hard today, and I'm worried to see what will happen in raid. Part of me wants to switch back to Honey, and just play Aynslie for alt raids. Part of me feels like I'm failing. Part of me feels guilty for changing in the first place (especially since I was told multiple times not too).
There's also the lack of artifact power on Honey too. It may be a bit. I did originally half plan to switch back to Honey when rets got buffed, but I didn't think I would want to switch back so soon.
We'll see what happens. For now I'm just hoping I don't get kicked out of my mythic group lol.
