2. Forget about the g14 critical/desire crap, those who with thee dual symbol have very bad accuracy than before(except earmaster)and they were open to Curse type spell such as blind, so it is a fair trade
3.if we were talk about mass pk scenario, I don't think we will have enough useful information here as we do not have any great pk to tell either the nerf are good or bad for priest at this point, The pk are just too sad to mention right now, leave alone that u expect it actually gives u info that the nerf are extreme or not
For more playing styles in Priest, we need to think about the skills/Spells that priest have at the moment.
I have to say again the nerf AC or remove hidden resist are fine AS LONG AS They can improve the game/the quality of PVP.
Archer nowadays don't really need to use any AC Drop (without ac drop the damage is good enough to kill ALL the priest (Templar or non Templar) with stroke candles on)
Warrior/Thief don't need to use poison anymore because the damage is good enough to kill the priest or raped their pots very quickly.
What offensive spells except LD for priest is worth to cast (with much long casting time compare to Wizard spell even with g7+ wise on) with low successful rate to finish the casting? Not to mention that LD is very difficult to aim when the people invisible or moving very fast with 167/197 shoes with buff smart rares which you mentioned and LD can aim one person at the time and CANNOT kill anyone immediately unlike BL/EX 44-45k for a d4 priest LD on Archer/Thief/Warrior without Mirror, who are with at least 48-49k (with life they can easily reach 54k).
With Mirror on, the priest will just keep potting until they ran out or die straight away?
For archer/wizard/thief, they can at least use stun/invisible and then run away, not to mention warrior as they are the Top rank class now with highest HP and highest white AC.
I need to ask again, what are you expecting the priest to do? (No matter which class he/she dual? Fallen, Saint, Templar or Averager)
Standing or moving and let the ranger to have fun and hitted/killed by the rangers?
I mean priest don't need a op magic but at least you need to give one self defense magic for them to fight back.
Otherwise, ask yourself, Are they fun to play with?
