I have to add this: This IS NOT me.
I play an Alliance Priest, Karniz... As it says in the comments, THIS IS A COMMISSION.
I only specced shadow for raiding, but I personally did not mind being asked to heal for instances, I actually RE-re-specced Discipline [my original talent tree, since I was level 10! + the entire game pretty much] just because I hated the LACK of healing.
I'm not an anti-shadow priest, but I hate shadow priests that say "I can't heal 4 u" when they're forcing an ELEMENTAL SHAMAN to heal... < /emo>.
[I'm currently playing my Shammy now, and I'm not BUILT for healing, but yet I'm forced to because *EVERY* godamn priest hordeside is SHADOW. It's annoying, really. Can't do instances properly... UGH...]

Sorry, just ranting.

A commission piece for the lovely Sennja, who is a fellow Argent Dawn-ian. ^^
Her Shadow Priest. Rejecting the many requests for her to heal in a party. Hehe. This was a really cute idea, and I just adore how the picture game out...

Gogo shadow priests.
[I recently specced shadow for PVP, after my entire lifetime playing being full Discipline. Hoo-ha!]

I remember the issues I had finding groups when I was playing WoW. I was a fury focused warrior (built with solo play in mind) but I never had issue with strapping a board to my arm and tanking instances because, largely I enjoyed simply being able to play along side others. If they needed me to tank I'd press a hotkey and swap to my tanking gear/spec if the tank went down pressed a different button to swap to my board and hit defensive stance.
It was annoying to me when I ran into people playing a "traditionally" healing classes that refused to do so much as off heal/ throw heals out if the actual healer went down. I thought it was a rather selfish mind set and/or the result of someone who never learned what their class could do.

Hehe, I agree completely!
[incase it wasn't clear, I am not the priest in the illustration... XD]
Back when I played, and I healed 5-mans, [especially if the PUG was, ahem, terrible] I'd normally out-DPS a few of the people. This was awhile ago though, before they broke the Discipline build, if I remember reading correctly.
I never understood those that couldn't play the multiple roles their class was built for. My favorite is asking a Rogue to Sap, and they have no idea what I meant by that... ^ ^;;

Yeah, that bugged me a good bit too. The only class/role that I personally couldn't 'get into' was healers. When I was playing healers I'd usually end up finding there was too little for me to do. I experimented with most of the healing classes and found I generally preferred direct healing (as opposed to say relying on HOTs) and overall my favorite was the Shaman since I also enjoyed it's enhancement spec play.

I was always rather judgmental of a group's tank, especially if they often lost agro since I could and did easily tank even raids half asleep. The few times I forgave that was if there was a fire mage, an over active stun-locking rouge, or another tanking class using their agro gaining abilities.

I use to clown around with my groups that warriors had an agro dump just like other had no cooldown time but damaged gear and had a variable duration. the ability name? Death.

Man, this almost makes me want to play again. They need to port WoW to the 360 lol.
