Change Priority based on another customfield value in inline groovy script


So I have this case where I want to set the Priority based on a custom severity field upon creation of an issue.

With a Groovy inline script I have the following, but I can't get it to work right. Can you help me?

MutableIssue myIssue = issue;
  case "Extreme":
 case "Bad":
 case "Not so bad":

Have you considered using a Priority object, as explained on this post? I believe that it would work for you.
