Main swaped to a Disc priest - haven't played one in quite a long time. Our guild is currently 2/8 HM. I completely prefer disc. I've hated holy for a very long time. I'm looking for basics here. I've done quite a bit of research and I've leaned towards Haste / Mastery. I don't seem to run into mana issues at all and I've reforged quite a bit away from spirit. Obviously my gear still needs help and I'm working on that but any pointers would much be appreciated.
There seems to be huge debates everywhere I go on whats better. I've seen a lot of Haste / Crit builds because of the specific damage that happens in DS. I tried that for awhile and output wise Haste / Mastery seems to get me further.
Generally what I'm doing:
PW:S for Raputre(usually on tanks - more if mana permits).
Archangel on CD - or prior to any damage ramp up to buff my healing output.
PoM on CD - Always.
Holy Fire on CD if possible.
PoH spam during heavy damage - Weaving PW:S / PoM.
Gheal only occasionally - mostly on tanks when they need it.
I use Power Infusion on myself prior to heavy damage
Shadowfiend at 55% Mana or so - Hymm of Hope later in fights if I or others call for it.
Arcane Torrent on CD
One thing I haven't been really doing:
Using penance often. - Seems largely useless.
Obviously I'm using Barrier when necessary and Divine Hymm when necessary(or called for by heal lead), same with pain supression.
I'm not usually responsible for tank healing so Inspiration is largely useless - yes it has its benefits but - healing Morchuk has never been an issue and we aren't to warmaster yet. Keep that in mind when critiquing the spec.
