Discipline Priests
  • Disc Priests are going to be a much more offensive healer after another pass on Atonement which will make it more interactive.
  • They will still have heals and PW:S, but they will sustain their healing through doing DPS.
  • Closer to 50% damage and 50% healing spec.
  • In the past, when Atonement was popular you would just spam Smite and Holy Fire all fight long and use the smart healing, which wasn't very interactive. This time, you may throw out some single target heals giving players a buff. Next time you Smite, people who have that buff will get your healing, and you will have to refresh the buff periodically.
  • These changes should fix the absorb heavy nature of Discipline Priests.
These changes appear to mainly focus on the PvE aspect of Disc, but it does sound like we are getting back some of our damage! With Atonement appearing not to be a smart heal, they may be able to give us damage without it becoming too strong for Pve purposes.
I want to believe so badly...

Just reroll already if your spec frustrates you that much tbh. I'm not flaming at all right now, but it must suck to play something that is annoyed by specific classes so much - in your case, shit that can lock you down.

[13:49:14] Creed: u have 20min to find a healer, going for a jog
[13:49:53] Creed: nothing like running through the bush being chased by wild animals to get a proper workout
[13:50:01] Creed: you europeans and ur silly gyms

I think he only re-rolls if forces outside of his control leave him no choice

like blizzard perma-banning his current account, for instance ;)

No because the difference is when I play a comp i play it close to skill cap

if anyone needs to be banned, it's you. You do nothing but sit on AJ being a passive aggressive idiot that nobody likes, sorry you stink of washing up liquid.

Feel free to call me an idiot because I'm a hunter or some stupid ass remark but I've actually written all this down on paper

I actually made an appearance at DH2014 and I met up with people from twitch who were involved with the dota 2 / cs tournies that where there, I talked about the game from my perspective as a professional player and we actually shared a lot of opinions. All I'm saying is a lot of people will be VERY surprised about the future of this game in the esport world :)

This is good news


Not really, because that's means you have to dps in order to heal as much as a regular healer, so training you would be a good way to shut down your healing AND your dps at the same time. If they continue (I hope they will) their de-homogenization, that's mean holy pal will be the best single target healer with no cc/minimal damage? Coooool :D

While the initial premise seems lackluster, the end goal of having healers - and ultimately DPS having niches again is a welcomed return. The details can be ironed out in beta.

Example:Who do you train? 50% heal+50%dps(disc) or 90% dps +10% heal(random dps)?
Its not like what u try to make us think like "train disc is shutting down 100%+100%dps"

Then again, if priests will be trained a lot to shut them down, it could open them up for comps where leaving the dpses alone would be devastating (MLP/RMP jumps to mind). I feel like this is somewhat the way to go for priests, in removing our offensive capabilities we have been forced to compete with other healers with just pure healing output without having anything different to bring really. Going back to making different healers good for different comps on a more basic level would be awesome but maybe I am hoping too much...

honestly i dont even mind rmp this season that much, the comp annoys me but its moreso that it is SO EASY to annoy disc priests as they suffer from magesyndrome.
