Re: [Classes] 5.0.4 Healing Priest
Thanks for stepping up to the task Immer. I'm looking forward to your input. I only started Priest healing about 6 months ago and have primarily been using Disc...tried Holy and even ran half a DS run while testing it out, but my passion is with Disc. The changes for MoP didnt hurt us Disc Priests imo, in fact I think they really pumped us up. Our guild was farming R-Morchuk the other night in a 8 man group when the other healer (Holy Priest) dc'd about half way through. I was able to keep everybody alive and still end up with half my mana wearing just ilvl 392 gear. That was a feel good moment and made me all the more anxious to get started in MoP.

Priests should be in a fairly good spot post 5.0.4. Mana normalization doesn't hurt us in the least and if you were a priest worth your salt you know that sustainability comes before pure throughput because by the time you hit the point where throughput becomes the most important part of your job you've already reached the sustainability levels needed to make it count. Gear raining down like candy and mana essentially becoming a non factor in most cases doesn't hurt matters. Talent wise I'm less than impressed, a few new tricks and tools but ultimately I still feel like the class as a whole is a shadow of what it was and should be, hence me moving on. I don't think I'll be shelving Adalicia all together but since achievements, pets, and mounts are account wide I'll certainly have an easier time letting go.
