Anyone played Disc @ 85 in arenas? If yes, please share your experiences. Iam really curious if disc is really as useless currently as everyone says.

What exactly makes us worse than other healers except for our healing power which has always been low in contrast?

This is from a 2v2 perspective:

- Disc's healing power feels substantially worse than the other healers, shields last for like a second.

- Disc goes OOM way faster than the other healers, a couple of reasons for that: worse healing power, Fiend sucks, no arena water atm which means healers rely on their passive regen/cooldowns and priests are just way worse in that department.

- Mana burns are pretty hard to hit with a 2.4 second cast time and doesn't really give you an advantage since you'll always have lower mana than the one you are burning.

I felt that Holy was better but its mechanics are a bit clumsy. As Holy you can have quite nice longevity if you get to cast Heal in peace, but that doesn't happen very often, most teams I played against just trained me.

Pretty much this. 99% of teams will just tunnel you until you die - or that's how I've found it. You'll either go oom or be unable to keep up with the healing due to Disc's awful mana and healing output.

Honestly, Priests in general are in a horrible state. Holy has some nice advantages, but it doesn't change the fact that you get trained and run oom/die due to lack of healing.
Just my experience, but I think everyone agrees that Disc is god awful.

Speaking from the beta, here it is...
- PW:S is way too weak
- Penance is way too weak
- We go oom literally 1000% faster than Paladin/Druid

Thats true. And to be honest, I'm a paladin and a DK spamming NS on me during gnaw/strangulate can force a bubble really fast, and outhealing a NS debuff is actually hard since a dk that kick you will kill you if he's his cooldown ready.

Don't even want to imagine tanking a dk as dpriest.

- Disc goes OOM way faster than the other healers, a couple of reasons for that: worse healing power, Fiend sucks, no arena water atm which means healers rely on their passive regen/cooldowns and priests are just way worse in that department.


Thats true, one of the only good part as disc, or as priest should I say, is that fear reduction talents are gone and your Psychic Scream ability actually lasts 8 seconds, not 5.

- Mana burns are pretty hard to hit with a 2.4 second cast time and doesn't really give you an advantage since you'll always have lower mana than the one you are burning.


As crazy as it sounds, a shadow priest is actually more likely to Manaburn than a disc priest, that'll have more important stuff to do than manaburning.

Well I always thought that priest was the worst by far of WOTLK but because the skill cap is the highest by far of the healer you can still compete against other healers. Just want to know if it's worst than in WOTLK?

I'm hoping that they improve things for us like making sure PW: Shield can absorb more than an icelance and reducing the cast time on mana burn so if we ever aren't trained then we can put some pressure. or like if we use archangel we get a snare removal so for once we might be able to escape.

The last patch gave a further nerf to disc - 29 days to Cataclysm, BETA will end soon, I wouldn't expect any changes forthcoming to Priests.
