I really just realized how limited a disc priest's options for an effective 3s comp is. Some spellcleave variant (although theyre almost always better with one of the other 3 healers), dub heals warrior, and RMP which is a shadow of it's former self. Do you guys think this is all due to a priests susceptibility to melee cleaves? Or are priests fine and 3 viable comps are enough. What are priests missing to make them a truly awesome healer, or are they not missing anything at all?

Disc is somewhere near balanced, the problem is there are 2 other and 1 specifically that is op as fuck and thus the problem lies in that there are better healers to bring, not that Disc is bad.

priests are fine until you meet double melee team. That puts u i a need to play with somebody who can peel those melee of you. Its pretty much the same with lock you cant play setups where nobody can save you from melee.

At the end of every day, disc profits from his offensive abilities. They are awesome in their own right.

the problem is it is becoming more and more difficult to go offensive as gear gets better since you have to spend more time healing. And if you can't go offensive to a noticeable degree, no point in using disc over another healer.

RMP isnt a tier 1 comp? Im not sure where you guys are from, but there are several RMPs in every BGs top 10.

The real problem is in priests survivability.

I feel they heal for way too much, have way too much offensive abilities that are pretty OP tools for a healer to have.

TL/DR: preists need better survivability and nerfed healing and offensive throughput.

5-6k smites and double O dispell are just retarded when you play a comp that cant force a preist defensive offen enough.

our survivability has to do with us NOT doing enough healing to keep up with melee and NOT having enough mobility. our dispel is fine. and name ONE COMP that cant force a priest defensive.

Priests don't do anywhere near 5-6k smites in pvp unless it's a 0 resi target. And another reason that disc is so shit now is that damage is still too high and you can never really go offensive as much as you should as a priest now.

Also to say Disc healing is too strong is retarded. You clearly haven't played a Paladin or a Druid recently. 10k instant heal on a 5 second cooldown? Np holy shock.

Mobility (shadow's fade?) would be a godsend.

please dont post if you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about

edit: if by several RMPs in the top 10's you mean 3-4 TOTAL across all BGs in top 10 range then OK

just eluding to how oblivious people are about a class they have never played

Go on the TR, and Smite the target dummy 100 times, you will never break 5k...

Also, I don't know if your mentally ill, but compared to all other healing classes, the healing output for disc in both PvP and PvE is the lowest of any class. Hence Blizz said they are giving disc a better healing ability for cata. :cool:

Maybe imp fade talent effect should be added to fade ability to increase our mobility.I too often feel that even I got peeled I was in crippling/hamstring and couldn't get away from enemies and they are back on me in a sec. Yea and disc healing is way too much based on pw:s not getting dispelled and heals are weak compared to other healers
