You argue that if absorbs get nerfed we need something to compensat that berf. But as it stands, I havent seen a blue post on SS being nerfed, as well as I havent seen a post on PWs being nerfed. These too are very strong, and as long as they stay this strong, we most certainly shouldnt get buffed through more throughput.
I am so sorry if my use of the word doubledipping wasnt politically correct enough, my sincere apologies. For your convenience I shall rephrace this as follows: in my opinion disc should not be entitled to very strong absorbs (which will always override straight heals) as well as decent dps utility as well as strong straight healing abilitis, which in essence makes other healing classes seem pointless.
If you cant see where Im coming from with this opinion so be it, we can agree to disagree. But it's slightly silly to say we need more straight heals to offset for absorb nerfs, when ther are, afaik, no planned SS nor shield nerfs in the near future. Instead we have offensive spells that deal a significant amount of dmg, whilst smarthealing AND generating shields for preventing further dmg, effectively double-sniping heals.
Id love to hear which bosses you find yourself having significant issues with healing throughput, where you feel disc is so weak we need to get stronger spells to make us viable? This is in no way meant in an hostile tone, but in a curious manner, as Ive only cleared half of TOT n 25 heroic, and would like to prepare myeself in case further bosses cause issues for discs, as Ive yet to run into a situation where Ive thought "crap, my raid would be so much better off if they used another class over me here". As in the end, we are a desired class, thus I dont think we need to be stronger if you compare to druids and shamans for instance.
