    Love the post Danner, good to see someone else has done his homework. However: Missed just one thing, that's 3% not 5. It's practically moot though.

    Re: thoughts on the holy 51 pointer...?

    I'm full Holy with the required 14 points in Discipline and I have to say that I never have issues with mana.

    Not when healing regular instances, heroic instances, 10-Mans, or even 25-Mans. Holy Priests shine *VERY* well when the person behind the wheel is familiar with the OO5SR Dance. It all comes down to play style and those that do not grasp the moves behind the dance are going to fail as any Spirit-based healer.

    I gear my Priest on one factor and one alone: Pure and Unadulterated Mana Regeneration. It works out well for me because I've become very, very good at the dance.

    There are a number of fights that aren't great to be a Holy Priest (such as Patchwerk due to having to chain cast) - this is one of the few where a Holy Priest will have to take a back seat to Discipline.

    I'm able to chain cast Greater Heal through the duration of the fight, but it does require potting and Shadowfiend and all that jazz. Have to shake the idea of keeping renews on the tank, too, because sparing the GCD is just far too risky on this fight (10man with 2 healers).

    I have all the Heroic-Badge gear from this expansion; even purchased the Robe with it. If you're running out of mana or having to constantly drink from healing heroics - you're doing something wrong either with your play style or your gear choice.

    WOWOWOWOW! watch your words mate... It is definately not a better version of pain suppresion!

    Say youve got 20k hp... it heals you for 10k. -MS debuff of 5k.... PS reduces the dmg i take by 40%.. so if im being nuked (this is for PvP... in PvE the same can be said about the tank) for 20k of my health over the period of PS... that means it absorbed a 8k of the damage i took.

    And its easyier to use... use it the moment you see 2 dps running at you and uve got no CDs left... to use GS you gota time it right cuz sometimes you use it.. and just sit there with it on for 10 seconds

    Nor is there a solo usage of CoH.

    GS is a situational spell. I've used it quite a lot in heroics and it has saved lives. Whether or not it's a worthy 51 pointer...well I look at some of the truly interesting 51 pointers such as metamorphosis, titan's grip, or the Beast Mastery thing, and think "hmmm we got three dull talents".

    Sure all three are pretty handy. Effective. But nothing overly cool or fun.

    As for the Disc vs. Holy debate. I'll probably have my dual spec as Disc simply for heroics (though I doubt I'll be running them by then).

    It's definitely not a better version of pain suppression, but neither is pain suppression a better version of guardian spirit. They are very different skills that can and should be used at different times.

    The optimal usage for GS in the scenario you explained would be casting it on yourself at the last second (so that the nukers won't have time to dispel it) and then watch your health go up from near-zero to 5k or 10k if there's no MS effect on you. PS on the other hand is almost useless if you have only 1000 health left. It really can't be used too late.

    imp holy concentration is ok in the fact that you get more chance to CC, but it sucks that its really situational.



    Umm... increasing spell hate improves your CC and is very situational? WHAT?

    don't like it at all...

    6 sec isn't a long time in the time you trigger the effect to increase healing received and then cast a flash heal the global cooldown makes it just to long...
    You can almost cast 2 flash heals instead of 1 at 40% improved.

    For me this talent is only nice on a short time on a raid fight where tank takes more damage but still ony can use it once in 3 minutes...
    For heroics it sucks, for raids it's ...ok ...
    Still like more the hots of a druid healer and some greater heal spamming a tank on hard parts in raids.

    Next build i make won't be with that talent i guess.
    For me it's still more like "hey look i just made a HUGE crit on you" spell

    Did you COMPLETELY ignore the fact it SAVES the tank and only concentrated on the imp healing aspect? if so just delete ur post

    I do =p you can get a good 15-20 seconds out of it.
    Gs, wait two seconds-hymn of hope, pop inner focus stopcast gheals until you need it, with any luck you will crit and get clearcasting, stopcast until you need that. 20 seconds and a ton of mana
