Dunno if this have been discussed before.
Last night I had a pretty big discussion with my friends about disc raid healing.
I stated that ofc you can use a disc priest in a 25 man raid, no problem just let him heal the MT and OT or something like that and he'll never go oom.
No, they stated that holy is best for 25man atm, since there aren't any fights where the disc specs mana regen proves better than holy.
K, I couldn't convince them that disc healing is very reliable and mana efficient, so I tried to explain that it's a horses for courses (correct me if i'm wrong with that!) issue, but they still didn't buy it.
The discussion ended without a winner and I took a look on the best guilds on my server.
No big guilds uses them and no1 on my server even intend to use them, mb if Ulduar bids on some 25+ min fight it might be considerable.
And no, my friends are not noob, nor the big guilds are idiots or something, many ppl are just by the meaning that: "discipline is for pvp, holy is for pve, END!"
and i've really tried to prove them wrong.
The big point of this issue is, how can we change ppls minds about disc pve healing ?
I've played and tested the spec several times and it works great, mb i'm not on top of the healing meter but I keep the ppl alive which i'm supposed to.
