Well ok. I have tried to read up on the stickys on this site aswell as doing quite some reading over at EJ. But as far as I can see I haven't gotten any really good answer to my questions regarding disc and aoe healing.
Now, I have around 370 equipped ilvl. So I am not actively raiding, but I am doing some LFR combined with regular hcs. And I always struggle during the aoe phases. So obviously I am doing something wrong.
Take the Zon'ozz encounter for example. During the ball phase I have no problems at all in keeping a somewhat steady healing throughput on the raid combined with a few shields and penance casts on the tank. Everything works fine.
But then, when we all stack up and the quite heavy raid-wide damage starts, I have no real idea on how to act. I mean, I start out with a shield for rapture and all that in advance, aswell as a PoM. So that is taken care of. I then start to cast a PoH so that it will land slightly before the aoe really starts, if I can. For shields etc. But then what??
I keep penance on cd, shield when someone really needs it and I keep bouncing PoM when it comes of CD. But what do I do inbetween my cd's?
Edit: I could add that I am speced as an AA priest. Should I just smite/holy fire through the damage? I doubt it though so no need for flaming there
