Hitting Arvash with the nerfbat!

Stealing inspiration from my buddy Arvash!

In the new Mist of Pandaria expansion, Druids will be getting a new spell called Symbiosis, which will allow them to “trade” a spell with another player, based on the player’s class and combat role and the Druid’s specialization.

So my question is, if you could have any spell you want from any other class, current spells or new ones in MoP, what would it be?  How would you work it into your rotation, gameplay, etc.?

The one spell for my Priest Liyhe would have to be a Battle Rez! It would be nice to have one, because lets face it, how many DK’s save up their runic power or how many people actually raid with warlocks? (They smell like imp poo!)

Other notable mentions:

Travel Form – but instead of a cheetah or a stag – a unicorn! lol

Healing Shrooms – but instead of making a smurf village – make a bunch of heretics burning at the stake!

Summon Ghoul/Demon/pet etc – Angels!

But to expand upon Arv’s initial question if I could have an ability from any MMO, it would be simple. From FFXI:

Utsusemi

And it’s upgraded version:

Shadows

I don’t really tank in WoW, it’s too much work! However, I did tank as a ninja in FFXI.

Now the ninja in FFXI originally was not thought out by Square Enix to be a tank. It the players who made the ninja into a tank.

Now to be a ninja tank in FFXI, you needed good gear, and the ability to time your casts well. If  you were good xping was easy street, get a bad one and it was painful. A good one would only get hit maybe a few times here and there, a bad one was worth then a noob DK tank in Hellfire Ramparts.

It was simple, when you had both versions of the spell – Ichi – took about 4-5 sec to cast, Ni was almost instant cast.

1.) Prepull – cast Utsusemi:Ni – if you were main job ninja – you got 4 shadows

2.) As the mob s beating on you – keep track of how many shadows you have left, before the last one is gone, start casting Utsusei:Ichi so the last Ni shadow would go before Ichi finishes casting. But if for some reason the mob misses your shadow, or you dodge, one had to cancel the last shadow from Ni. Why you ask? Because Ichi cannot overwrite Ni, while Ni could overwrite Ichi shadows.

3.) While doing this you had to make sure maintain threat – by using your WS when poss, and other ninjitsu spells as needed.

    I would steal charge from either warriors or bears. As a paladin I would like charge. I know I have Holy Frisbee, but still, holy frisbee then charge would be awesome.
