I also see a table full of people who don't want to play one. As if being a healbot wasn't already unappealing, you get to have your foot nailed to the deck by Anathema too. Alas, I'm ready to return to D&D 3.5. I just can't convince my friends to follow.
As the guy who usually plays clerics, when I get a chance to play, I feel your pain. My group and I have pretty much decided that if these nerfs stay, for cleric's and casters in general (feels like the old days of WoW where classes were nerfed due to whining in the forums), we won't do 2E. As the playtest went on, excitement waned then went away. Changes were made supposedly due to reduce complexity, which didn't make sense or seemed disingenuous at best (like the removal of bonus spells based on stats), while making other areas more complex than before. We really wanted this to be the next go to but beyond a few changes (most which seems to be tweaks from unchained, like action economy), we just don't see us embracing the new system. It sucks since we have been here from the beginning.
