You maybe right about pain & suffering i'm a pver at heart so i hang on to tight to such talents perhaps, but when I do pvp its only for bgs and I have no problems doing those in pve spec.Originally Posted by AetherMcLoud
At the moment I have divine fury aswell in my pve build, but I can also just chaincast greater heal and not go oom in a raiding environment. This is mostly because of rapture, with manareturns from the heal itself and divine aegis procs. But in 3.1 greater heal will be as costly as casting prayer of healing. and since we get 15% reduction on flash heal + the glyph, I think casting greater heal will be very rare and perhaps in conjunction with inner focus + borrowed time, or with power infusion.I absolutely agree with your points in the Discipline Tree. I really don't think there's any way to improve upon that.
I can't agree with picking up Healing Focus and Improved Renew over Divine Fury. I will say that all of them are sub-par talents, but I think Divine Fury is potentially more useful. Healing Focus is still mostly replaced by Concentration Aura, and paying 2 points for 15% pushback reduction just doesn't seem worth it. If you don't have a Holy Paladin in the raid, though, that may still be useful. Even with Improved Renew, I can't see Renew being useful by Discipline because the new Improved Flash Heal makes it almost always superior by being better HPM; plus, Renew cannot crit without Empowered Renew, while Flash Heal can, so you have to also factor in Divine Aegis procs. Meanwhile, Greater Heal still looks like it will be higher HPS than Flash Heal with Divine Fury, so while it may kill your mana, having the option to burn some mana for more HPS is valuable. Moreso, assuming the PWS->Penance->GH combo isn't broken, it will still be useful for that as well.
So, while I agree that Divine Fury has lost some ground with the addition of Empowered Flash Heal and the change to Rapture, I don't think it's lost enough ground to justify grabbing those other two talents over it.
I might still put the points from renew into divine fury, but I like healing focus, also helps with not losing any penance ticks.
While I agree that concentration aura is better, I just would feel naked without speccing it :X
