holy pallies are extremely boring to me right now. im considering going disc, its a lot of fun right now especially playing with a rogue...whether its rmp or dancing with the stars, tons of fun.

now we all know they are a bit week in arena,i havent played my disc that much to talk about it much honestly, they just oom quickly, are squishy etc.


reading the patch notes, i dont see any hard buffs that will change disc healing in arena lol. i see rapture mana buff, but idk how that scales due to my knowledge in disc.


what are your thoughts?

Still dogshit, just like 5.1 the "buffs" just make it seem like they care about disc in pvp. Unless they nerf Rshaman/Hpally, there's no reason to bring anything but those 2 healers given the current patch notes.

There aren't any 5.2 changes for Disc yet. Everything in the patch notes is tooltip updates for things that were hotfixed, as far as I recall.

Unless we see big changes, stick to your hpal or resto sham. Both are still completely retard proof specs right now.

With Paladins actually being popular for once, disc might do okay in some comps. Spriest is still probably the way to go.

Disc has a good tool set but mana is kinda an issue as it has always been.

Main problem with Disc Priests is their lack of utility compared to other healers :

-Almost every team has a Shaman or a Warrior, making Psychic S/Psyfiend our only CC most of the time useless.
Give a new unique ability to priests (e.g. Chastise or a short disorient) / perhaps a second healing CD -
Nerf Tremor Via Totemic Restoration.
-Lack of burst - Smite does the same dmg as mindspike at level 85 (around 8k)
Add mind spike or something similar that deals equivalent damage at lvl 90 as MS/MB did at lvl 85.
-Bad glyph homogenization
At least - PS/Inner Focus need to be permanent - perhaps Penance since Priests Mobility is weak enough.

Not going to talk about surv/mana issues for now, since they are buffing Focused Will/Rapture.

Yes please! Going "offencive" as disc is a joke now my dmg gets outhealed by renew and we have no choice on what glyphs we use

yeah. my smites/hfs used to do 8-10% of the targets health in wrath
now it's about 2%

i feel like a resto shaman lightning bolting in tbc when i do damage

we literally have NOTHING that makes us unique healers anymore

Disc needs something that makes fears circumvent tremor/berserker rage etc (make them horrors?)

Also Disc's niche was always doing damage which is non-existent now, brings nothing over other healers currently.

They always make mistakes for disc at the beginning of each expansion; this time disc is quite strong in raiding from Atonement, but its just not effective in pvp - obviously. They had good intentions for disc, but it didn't work out in the end.

They're pretty bad man, I'd stay holy pally. Has better damage, cc, survivability, mana, and utility than disc.

We are considering making the glyphs of Desperation and Inner Focus passive for Discipline.

We did not buff PvP Power for healer damage as we did for DPS healing. However, we believe that Discipline specifically might need more damage.


They are listening bros.
