So this is to help choose which is better once we get into 8.3?
I like that besides nerfing Deathbolt they buffed the other two options in that talent row. I don't know if that buff makes a shadowbolt build viable but at least it was not just a simple nerf. And now look at shadow priests. If they #$%^ up their design principles of a class they should at least make an alternative to the crit-chorus-ghosts build. What do you want to choose instead? The gap between chorus of insanity and other azerite traits is so %^&*ing huge that nerfing chorus will just make the spec feel crap with no alternatives to choose from.
What we have here for tank from essences. Only Breath of the Dying. But meh i must say. Strife will be better option.
