Hey guys, I just got my priest to 90 and I want to try disc in 5.2 but i've never played a healer before and i feel like i'm really lost when it comes to keybindings. Do you guys keybind targeting your teammates or do you click them or do you solely use macros (like /cast @target flash heal)?
I also remembering reading neilyo's guide for rogue keybindings when made so much sense when i tried them myself so i'm wondering if there's a similar guide for priests?
Any tips are appreciated really.

Thanks

Keybindings are VERY individual. Some people have target macros for each party members as well as dispel macros for each party member. When I played Disc I just had the target party macros and I just swapped target quickly when I had to dispel someone. I think my way is the easiest, specially if you aren't too good with remembering your target macros.

As for the rest it's all individual, bind what you think is good and try it out and change it until you feel comfortable. That someone is a "pro" player does not make his/her keybinds any better.

Yeah i understand that keybindings are individual but i'll change my question a bit then. What keybinds do you all use for targeting party members and for /focus 1/2/3? and do you use a self cast modifier or do you target yourself?

I have target party1 and 2 on scroll up and scroll down. For self casting I just hold the alt-key.

Modifiers are pretty helpful, I use x, alt-x, shift-x, ctrl-x for all dispels being me, pet, party1, party2. Same for offensive dispel, b and shift-b for dispel target and dispel focus target. Keeps my binds very clean, cause I use few keys with many modifiers

Thanks this was just what i was looking for! with pets it feels like i'm going to have way too many keybinds to remember :P do you guys switch between inner fire and inner will also?

Pick inner fire/will at the start of the match and then you'll most likely keep it. You could swap to inner will from inner fire when you are basically out of mana.

some tips.

save `12345 for instants; pom renew shield death etc.
put your casts on modifiers since you have to be standing still to cast them anyway; example alt+Q for flash heal.

Targeting stuff
/target arena 1 2 3 are helpful. most people put these on f1 f2 f3
/target party 1 2 a lot of people put these on mousewheel
/target player I like this on a side mouse button

dispel stuff
make individual dispel macros for dispelling your teammates and self.

focus stuff.
/focus arena 1 2 3; just put it on shift a s d or something.

rest of stuff is just whatever u want

For switching between the two I use:
/castsequence Inner fire, Inner Will

I generally switch to inner fire when I predict the opponents swapping on me and switch to inner will whenever I'm about to use a lot of instant cast spells to maintain mana.
