Are you saying that, disc has better or equal healing cooldowns and defensives to holy pala?
Being exempt from school locks due to instant healing, having amazing healing cooldowns/output + double blessings is too much when you have repentance. Lose some healing faceroll or cc, but you can't have everything,. otherwise, there is no need for other healers. i.e %80 representation by shaman + paladin healers in s12.
And you won't go back to cata, just look at what you gained this expansion, it's retarded good. Same principle applies to resto shamans.
Paladins have always had really strong throughput, and now we have really strong instants, but that's balanced by the fact that we have basically zero reactive healing, eternal flame ticks for 7k. When we're not cc'd, nothings going to die and thats how its always been, but someone dies in a blanket silence because every bit of our healing stops. And so far this season I've been being trained more by none rmp's then I can ever remember, anything with a mage is always looking to kill me, but now half the melee cleaves just tunnel me into the ground and eventually I get put into a full stun and die because, assuming it isn't purged, my eternal flame is ticking on myself for like 12k...wooo. Outside of bubble paladins have TERRIBLE survivability, and with mass dispels .3 second cast time its, unless you can blanket the priest its gone instantly. I can pre wall deep freezes, 40% less damage+70% resil, and STILL be taken from 100-0.
tldr: Stop bitching, every healer has strengths and weaknesses, but look at the ladders, all four are being represented at the top level already, all four have multiple viable comps. They are all viable, none of them are far and away better then the rest.
Three days of queuing at 2100-2300 and I see more shaman and disc priests then paladins, with about the same amount of druids and quite a few monks. Wizards are amazing, which makes paladins weak
