Smite and holy fire on target is all that's really required. I'm also using a macro for my t6 talents (swaps automatically between them), my shadowfiend (petattack), void shift macros for my tanks and a few cds macro'd together (e.g. one binding for engineering trinket+ss, and one for each individually) so I don't have to use several clicks for different off gcd spells at once. If you prefer to have a few less bindings I suppose the last few things aren't that useful. I'll type out the macros that aren't completely obvious:Though on a side note is anyone here using Macro`s?
T6 (if anyone could fix this so I don't have to use the spell for the tooltip to update I'd be deeply grateful):
/cast divine star
/script m_c=GetSpellInfo(121135); m_ds=GetSpellInfo(110744); m_h=GetSpellInfo(120517)
/run SetMacroSpell(".", GetSpellInfo(m_c) or GetSpellInfo(m_ds) or GetSpellInfo(m_h))
Shadowfiend (I take off shadowcrawl autocast in pvp, you can remove that line if you purely pve):
/cast [nopet, nomodifier] Shadowfiend
/cast [modifier:alt] Shadowcrawl
@Saryn, shhh we must not question or discuss his opinion/statements, that's not what forums are for!

I can't even think of a fight where I'm not hitting smite regularly, so I can't imagine a scenario where I'd be constantly delaying solace.
Yes there are (possibly) (futur) encounters that work well with mindbender over solace, but the points you bring up are off and should not repeated to priests coming back to disc as you put it.
- spirit shell, power infusion, IF, AA
- penance with my on-use spirit trinkets, because I'm kinda lazy and want to make sure I get close to 100% uptime with them
- cascade target=me (gets cascade out there faster, and it then prefers the farther away targets so = bigger heals)
- if friendly target, smite/hf = target of target
- Flash heal with IF
At work so I don't have the macros right now to post, but they're pretty simple.
Do you other disc priests forsee our atonement habits changing if at all in 5.3 when the healing goes from 100% dmg to 80% dmg?
Maybe going from a true healing ability to just using it to stack our 5 evangelism?
They would have to change 'Heal' and 'Holy Nova' to change our healing style, or maybe improving FDCL might help some.
Yeah pretty much, due to the superior scaling offensive penance will still be roughly as good as defensive (though most of the time a smart heal is better than a targetted).Gotcha. So pretty much decide if Penance is going to be used to stack Grace on a tank or on the boss for Evang.
