Smite Priest Buffing

Post by Apimius » Thu Jun 02, 2022 9:51 am

Hello fellow Turtles,

i think Smite Priest could use a buff damage wise. I saw in the coming patch notes that holy fire aswell as holy nova are getting a bit of a buff, which is good but probably not enough to make them really competible. My idea would be to either buff the damage of Smite ability a bit aswell, since Smite in itself is already a lower rank than what most other casters use or give Smite-Priest some unique passive or a new ability for their rotation. I know about that ret paladins are getting some buffs that will benefit a smite priest. Also, does anyone know if the suns embrace ability from high elf priests will be fixed with the coming patch?

Also please consider giving smite a spell hit talent, shooting for 12-16 spellhit from gear alone is just insane

Honestly, i think damage wise smiters never fell behind. Smite and Holy Fire can pack a punch and scale well with crit. It's the fact that you so heavily prioritize +hit gear over other useful caster stats. They can at least add 4% spell hit chance to Holy Reach talent which all Smiters will take. It's deep enough so that spriests can't easily take for additional hit and smiters as i said, already take it as a core talent.

Yes good idea, also maybe put Spiritual Guidance into the discipline tree because Divine Spirit will get removed.
