    Divine Aegis in combat only

    Divine Aegis

    As an experienced disc priest (playing it since wotlk), I disliked the way they changed it from a "150%heal + 30%absorb" to a "100%heal + 100%absorb + %mastery".

    The point is that in non-combat situations, absorbing effects are useless. This means that it takes you more to fully heal a target because every healing crit proc shields instead of double healing.

    Maybe it's battle fatigue that annoys really. But my suggestion was to make Divine Aegis working only in combat states, and in non-combat you just proc the double heal.

    Please vote the poll only if you understand this argument.

    Mod-note: As a poster pointed out, I will move this to the right forum.

Then use a swift jerking action to keep it bobbing up and down until the end. Then, when you pull it out you'll get the best end result.

    No please, this game doesnt need more streamlining, thats a drawback with disc since it uses alot of absorbs.
    Every spec doesnt need to be optimal for every damned thing.

    Why would you have to heal efficiently anyway when out of combat?

    The DA change was a pretty large nerf overall to disc priests. It was actually from 200% normal heal+30% extra, with that 30% extra benefiting from mastery, to 100% normal+100% extra, with both portions benefiting from mastery. So lets say 240% down to 220%. Of course, it also made disc much, MUCH better at their bubble niche, providing they had the neccesary crit amount.

    OP, if you are talking about PvP stuff, just reroll holy. Better damage, better healing, AND you have chastise.

    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    This should be in the priest forum.

    I like to pre-shield with it, so no.

    Maybe I'm retarded or an incredibly bad priest but I only "pre shield" with shell, on *certain* encounters, why do you think this change would "all of a sudden" make discs on par with other healers? (Basically, it won't)

    It wasn't a suggestion to make them "on par", it was a suggestion to allow them to heal up to full without casting twice as many heals when not in combat. Idea still sucks (except maybe as a glyph), but at least understand the argument before you respond.

    Oh this is a pvp topic, my bad then, because this made zero sense to me on a pve perspective.
