    Default Defiler rework going on on PTS

    Currently there is a Defiler rework going on on test. Not seen any mention of it here, but if you are interested in contributing, please take a look at this thread.

    Well,

    this is so Stupid, they are total messing up a good cleric soul, may as well just get rid of defiler spec. that is all I'm going to say

    if this hold true in 4.0, they are going loses a bunch of players that they can't afford to lose

    Currently defiler is a brain dead soul that can pretty much be played with one button, the link mitigation and UT are also a big issue when desigining raids. I personally am all for the changes on pts, it adds a new ranged dps soul for clerics. Whilst it isn't going to be top dps, it's very mobile and has amazing cleave potential, whilst still bringing a link.

    This will also allow for more flexibility in the desigining of raids, boss damage can likely be tuned down and new features implemented from it.

    I been play with the re-worked Defiler and I spend all my time refreshing the DOTs and never do anything else.
    at lease, in the old spec i can con tribute to healing and some dps.

    Most of the Raid guilds, i know of will not be running any defilers after 4.0.

    I will probably re-used the sole spot for another spec

    Default horrible

    My death cleric can't even live through an IA without heals, the failed drains are horrible and makes the only soul worth playing useless now, can't heal anyone, can't rez. Defiler was the only heal soul in the death line.

    This isn't what I paid extra for in the souls and the other souls aren't death based. I don't have to be happy with having my death healer turned to crap.

    Lol it's not crap though. It's a solid dps soul that will be used for clerics.

    Can't careless about it's damage output or performance. It's just boring. Period.

    Its somewhat of an rng issue, my best parses have zero BoJ so that means very prominent stack gains. A trick to avoid it that i used in that video for example is to refresh DoTs at 0-1s because its essentially better than using a BoJ in those situations where you're about to.

    That video wasnt at all my best parse, i did make a few mistakes but i just felt the need to put a quick vid out for now while i contemplate making a written guide.

    Okay, don't play it. All i know is i didn't see you in the PTS defiler forum trying to help out and test defiler, so imo, you don't really have the right to complain. Maybe check back in 4.0 when the legendary abilties come out. Until then
