Re: [Classes] 5.0.4 Healing Priest

My ears were burning.

Glad to see someone else taking over the monumental task oh bringing informative priest information to these forums. I may return to posting frequently on here, bad news is it won't be Priest information if I do. No, I've returned to my first love thanks the massive rework, my Warlock.

My two main classes are Aff/Destro 'Lock and a Shadow/(TBD Healing) Priest. Thanks everyone for posting the Priest info in here, it's been extremely helpful for me. I'm still trying to decide whether to go Disc (which I prefer playing) or Holy (which is probably the better raid healer) for my OS on the Priest.

And I'm looking forward to Adalicia's new thread on 'Locks

For now... I firmly believe Disc will scale better in later raiding tiers. Shad and Holy stat priorities fall closer in line than Shad and Disc.... but if your gear is all dps gear, then you'll need to acquire a second set of spirit gear anyway, so that point is moot in your case. For double-healing priests wanting to drop one of the specs for a shadow spec because of the daily grind... I recommend dropping Disc and using your holy reforged gear in your shad spec. The compromise is in the Mastery:Crit department. Holy priests value mastery higher than shads do (they like the Crit).

Wouldn't hold your breath, my time outside of my current 55 hour work weeks isn't leaving much room to play games, let alone post about them.

Seems I may have jumped the gun on this one. In many cases the spirit gear is better for your shad spec than the caster gear because of the spirit/hit conversion... at least up through 489 gear. I checked the recommended gear lists on Askmrrobot and the spirit versions of gear at each ilvl seem to edge out the non-spirit gear by a slight margin..until you reach items that have a higher +Hit than the +Spirit on the healing gear.

A spriest friend of mine noticed that he was getting more hit% when he reforged hit to spirit. I bonked him on the head and reminded him he was human.

Discipline tips/tricks:

At the start of the fight if you are in a solid healing crew, dmg just isn't really going out. So what do we do? We dps. Target the boss and fire away your Holy Fire, Smite, AND Penance and Cascade/DivineStar. The Attonement smart heal is amazing... and faster at selecting deserving targets than you are. They still created Divine Aegis, and you aren't taxing your mana by doing this.

Now that Spirit Shell is properly benefiting from Arch Angel, SS is even more tremendous. Watch your dbm timer and build up SS stacks BEFORE the big dmg goes out.

I really only use utilitarian addons (omen, recount, GTFO etc.) that assist me, but I still can live without them. Those break often enough after patches, I couldn't imagine not being able to do my job because my UI is broken.

the only critique I have is how large the scale of the Raid Frame is and the fact that it is tacked to the left of the screen (i just find it easier for my eyes to scan down from center rather than left & down).

i have to agree that Disc is pretty easy now, i switched over the weekend to try it out since 5.1 and ya it is kinda throw a bubble PoH and throw some smites around, might stay with it for a while, still like holy though, i like changing chakras adds some fun to healing.
