Congrats for the buff Shadow priests
Congrats for the buff Shadow priests
Edit: And yeah, the other people on the buss probbably though i had an extra chromosome or somthing, but it felt soo good too share my joy..:P
Shall I be the one to point out that a 5% buff when you're already almost 10% behind on live, isn't much to be happy about? Especially when it's announced in the middle of bigger buffs for pretty much every other spec. We'll see how it plays out in the raid testing tonight I guess.
It's great they do so much work to get Disc in a good place. I like most changes. Not a fan of crit proccs, unfortunatly.
I feel they always forget Holy though! We have Chakra that not many seems happy with and a signature spell, Sanctuary, that is completly undertuned and have too long uptime. Our tank CD bugs A LOT. I wish they would put some effort into making Holy more rewarding to play.
Anyone else did a jump for joy when they read we're getting guaranteed DA back on PoH? (Correct me if I misread the notes) Personally not a fan of giving mastery back to SS since that's the main reason we're OP at live, SS should have a longer CD imo...
While i like the spriest buffs, arent other classes gettings buffs aswell? even the ones usually near the top? wont that put us around the same spot on the meters relative to the other classes like in 5.1?
"When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you'll be successful"
I hate the guaranteed DA from PoH. We needed back when we didnt have SS to blanket shielding, now with SS its just too op to being able to pre shield the raid all the time. (my thoughts anyway) :P
Yey for shadow buffs, and nice Disc adjustments i gues - scared of them looking into disc atonement dmg though! I love doing alot of dmg while healing. Also makes the other healers happy that i aint just pre shielding all incomeing dmg which have been a huge problem on many fights so far in this tier :P
Where exactly did you read that guaranteed DA is back on the notes? no such thing is mentioned anywhere and DA is only from crits still.
You can't just increase PoH mana cost because this is baseline spell and doing so will just destroy holy priest raid healing completely.Imo, PoH is too cheap, 13.5k mana just makes it too spammable, should be atleast 17-18k, doing this would make DA stacking less efficient, and make SS'ing more costly.

1) He truly thinks so and looks at some weird parses of Raidbots.
2) He doesn't want to focus on a spec not too many are playing.
Some of holy's design mechanics are outdated and don't fit well with current encounters (chakra).
I think its a lost cause for 5.2, if they didn't work on holy until now, they aren't going to work on it at all. Disc got a lot of reworking, Shadow got buffed damage and nerfed healing, holy got nothing, no changes.
You do not get guaranteed DA back in any way outside of inner focus. Let me quote the patch notes for you:
Pay special attention to bolded part.Divine Aegis now causes critical heals to apply an absorb shield on the target for 100% of the amount healed instead of healing for twice as much. In addition, it grants Power Word: Shield a chance equal to the Priest's critical chance for the shield to absorb twice as much damage.
Let me quote the notes being refered to Isheria (since it seems too hard to actually look them up):
Spirit Shell now provides an absorbing shield equal to your average healing and absorb effects, including critical healing and Divine Aegis. Spirit Shell no longer benefits from Mastery, and now properly includes the benefits of Divine Aegis and critical effect chance.
Divine Aegis now causes critical healing to apply an absorbing shield to the target, equal to 100% of the healing, rather than double healing. In additional, it also causes Power Word: Shield to have a chance equal to priest's critical change to absorb double damage. Divine Aegis is no longer guaranteed when Prayer of Healing is cast. The effect now activates when the spell crits.

They are on both EU & US servers, but are idd written badly, I could be mistaken and it could be that guaranteed DA is still removed, let's hope Blizz clarifies soon enough.
Divine Aegis is no longer guaranteed when Prayer of Healing is cast.
That's in the patch notes. It seems pretty obvious?
The part you just said is strukthrough/red in the notes, which usually means its not going to get implemented.
