"After testing each of the Covenant abilities for Priest, it is clear that some of these abilities were not designed with Shadow Priest in mind."I feel the same way and this is what I fear the most, that they are trying to bind hybrid class into healer class and if you play dps spec with hybrid class you are "off meta" or simply a meme class.
Is that Kyrian ability seriously working as it was written here? Because the ability really sounds totally different than how it was explained.The Ascended Blast has no cooldown attached to it, so it should be instant and only on the GCD, which would give you the option to throw it out every 1.5 seconds while moving, instead of the 3 second stationary channel you have with Mind Flay.It reads more like you change your Mind Flay to Ascended Blast for 10 seconds after using Boon of the Ascended. But it is explained, totally different.
Is this post getting updated since the rework? It would be good to at least put a disclaimer mentioning that this post is outdated and doesn't reflect the current state of the spec.
