Eyeing-up a storm.

There’s already been much gnashing of teeth over the recently revealed Priest abilities in World of Warcraft.

Leap of Faith (level 85): Pull a party or raid member to your location. Leap of Faith (or “Life Grip”) is intended to give priests a tool to help rescue fellow players who have pulled aggro, are being focused on in PvP, or just can’t seem to get out of the fire in time. Instant. 30-yard range. 45-second cooldown.

Inner Will (level 83): Increases movement speed by 12% and reduces the mana cost of instant-cast spells by 10%.

I don’t see what the problem is myself, clearly someone on the Blizzard developer team has simply had one too many Eye of the Storm battleground flags poached out from under them by travel-form Druids and Shamans, so now they can whip those bad boys out of the way and beat them in a race back to the flag and glory!

Or instant death if they’re playing as Alliance.

I’m still working out the logistics of a Warlock-summon/Priest-pull combo. that will send unsuspecting running players off the edge of high places to their doom. Or maybe we could get Priests to stand on the other side of portals and yank players through!

Best skill ever, and therefore it will never make it into the game proper. For shame.

    Is it true that all DPS classes are getting the “Yank of the Faithless” spell at level 85, which automatically teleports the targeted Priest next to the player, shouts “HEAL FFS!” on all chat channels, and forces the Priest to cast their largest available healing spell on the character?

    And there’s always the Priest slinky: 25-man raid of Priests all form a conga line and then trigger Leap of Faith at the same time, getting pulled to one spot, then they all run off in one direction until the line is spread out and then trigger Leap of Faith again. They could travel across Azeroth like this and perhaps put on shows for any local schools that they pass.
