Is there any comp where a disc priest isn't completely replaceable by any other healer?

I played Disc last night (ran Disc/Lock/Mage) and it was worthless. Faced a kitty cleave and even with peels literally died in the first 15 seconds of the match. One game I even premptively cast Power Word: Barrier on myself as the feral opened only to die 10 seconds later. I played a little PMR earlier in the week and it was ok, but now that mages have bloodlust and every healer has dispel, it feels like a Priest is the weakest healer for this comp.

As this has been established in every other post, priests are the weakest healers
Go shadow - See if it balances out with gear or with a patch
Or go holy - It's better for everything except mana
Idk why people are stuck on disc

I've tried shadow and it's fun I just like playing a healing spec every onc ein a while.

As for Holy, I dont see any increased survivability compared to disc. If anything it goes down.

Holy works very well, you can use the lightwell (which heals alot) during stun, time guardian spirit well and it almost heals you to full health, most of the times the other team used all their CDs and you will survive. I have played some mage/priest/feral as holy and it works very very well, tbh I don't think priests will be in such a weak spot with a lot of resilience and a lot of spirit. Also sprint, poison dispel and chastise ftw

Basically, almost every priest will tell you to go shadow until Disc/Holy reaches any other healer's level in any terms.

Adelise will tell you to l2p.

That's about it.

I can honestly do nothing but laugh at you if you think that mages are super strong on the highest level of play.

Idk what to tell you
Your asking for a comp, if you need a comp for disc take the 2 most OP classes right now and pair them up with you.
You'll do just fine

I'm running 2k resil right now playing RLP and can survive pretty well even with peels that dr ( as far as cc goes anyway) with each other, fake pummel spam flash heals.

If a lock and a mage can't peel off you maybe it's a talent issue on their part.

Agreed - I played it in 2s but I lived just as long because of mana issues ...

Balance isn't as easy as some seem to think and often balance is in the eye of the beholder (when someone doesn't look at the larger picture.) What you may see as an "obvious problem" may not be a problem at all other than in how you're approaching it. We believe priests will be in good shape if not great, but we definitely plan to keep an eye out on things and have additional ideas should they be necessary to implement.

Get 4k resil, then just hope your teammates can kill something before you run out of cd's and die.
