My guild switched over to 10 man this tier much to my displeasure. Anyway, up until this past week we've had a solid disc priest but they had to quite and so I've had to make a roster change. We finally got to start working on heroics again since the 2nd week of Dragon Soul. It seemed that disc was the all around better spec for Yorashj heroic but he was having problems after switching to holy there were no issues and we downed it within a few attempts.
So my question is, why do I see disc priests as a 2nd healer on 2 healer fights more often complimenting holy paladins? Are absorbs just that much more useful or is there more? Is it just the better spec? Maybe it's just a personal preference? I just know our current priest believes the benefits of disc aren't that amazing. He could be right, I don't have a lot of priest knowledge.
I'm not a healer so all I'm able to say is, "I see logs and this is what other guilds are doing."
Thanks for any feedback
