Hey :)

If your are running low on dust crafting a Legend is always a hard choice. I can't tell you which you should craft but what to think about:

  • Do you enjoy the class enough to invest 1600 dust? (if you want to craft a class legend)
  • In how many different kind of decks does it fit?
  • How long will it stay? (Lyra will be in standard for a while and is still good, Velen and Ysera are timeless but Raza will rotate out somewhere in April)
  • Have you thought about other legends you might use in more decks?

And just for your information you can use the "Import Deck" feature. It auto includes links for the cards and removes the unnecessary stuff ;)

Ok thanks! I've gotten Ysera from Free From Ember and she saved me quite a few times. On the other hand, I've never used lyra before. I'm not sure to get Ysera or lyra. Judging  from my deck, which do u recommend, Ysera or Lyra?

To be honest I'm not the biggest fan of the priest class, especially since that stupid raza+anduin combo came up.

Better you wait for a suggestion made by a more priest competent player :)

But what I can see from your deck list, I have no idea how the rest of your collection looks like, but it's made mostly of common and basic cards. Nothing wrong with that but maybe to invest 1600 into one card might not be the best choice. For the same amount of dust you could get four crucial epic cards like Shadow Visions for example.

I recommend crafting Raza the Chained. I don't see why so many people think that when a card rotates out, it loses all of its value. The stigmatisation of wild is in my opinion mostly unfounded, as time has shown that it is standard that gets out of control, not wild. However, if you really don't want to start playing wild, I'd suggest waiting for the K&C meta to see whether a new deck pops up that appeals to you more than control priest.

I didn't want to say it loses value the cards will still be with us for several months, but for a player (if playing standard) who is new and/or has very limited resources it's worth a thought whether to craft a legend that will rotate out in a foreseeable time or to get one (s)he can use after that time.

For Wild: I agree that standard gets worse. And different players have different preferences and they are all legitimate, imo. My main reason not to play wild is, there are a lot of cards which see a lot of play and I hate them. I was so happy when Reno rotated out and will be happy about the next rotation, especially about MSG rotating out which provided to much cancer and imbalanced stuff. Of course I will miss a few nice cards but overall I will be happy.

      The Bloodborn is currently a Heroic raiding guild that is trying to break into Mythic progression raiding. We have a talented core and are very enthusiastic about raiding, but unfortunately we lack the numbers to attempt Mythic. We are a mostly adult guild ages 25-35 and would prefer like-aged people.
      A little history: The Bloodborn is a guild that has been around since The Burning Crusade. We started on the Lethon server and transferred to Illidan at the start of Warlords in an effort to find more players on a high-pop server.
      We have earned AoTC during every raid tier this expansion (and before!). We are a close-knit guild who help boost keys weekly, PvP, achievement hunt, and much more.
      We are willing to help people gear up for their tier. Voice is optional, but we use Discord and will require you at a minimum to listen.
      Guild Needs:
      DPS (Death Knight, Shadow Priest) are in high demand.
      Healers (Priest, Paladin, Shaman) are in high demand. 
      Accepting applications from all specs/classes.
      Raiding Times:
      Monday - Tuesday - Wednesday 9:30pm-12:30am(pst) 11:30pm-2:30am(server-time)

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletag: Vims#21684

      To apply please visit our guild website:
      Requirements to be considered into current main raids:

      As a retribution Pally should I equip the Insignia of the Grand Army instead of either Soul of the Highlord or Chain of Thrayn.  Could not find in the icy-veins guide about this ring.

      Good time, everyone. New set-bonus requires to do some rotation and now i mostly use binding heal + prayer of healing, but in case of running in Antorus - could surge of light from legendary be a good option? And maybe some other talent changes as well.
