Was wondering if Rapture is really needed for arena? Specifically 2v2 bracket. I would also like to hear from you guys what else, if anything, you think isn't really needed in the Discipline tree for arena. I still took almost everything at the bottom like I would for raiding but some of them feel like they are less useful in PVP.
If you click my sig you can see my Disc PVP spec for 2's atm. I'm not going PVP crazy so it was intentionally still kept PVE'ish (I think) for dailies and stuff but I started having fun in 2's so I've been thinking more about the talent choices. Since I'm not ultra into it so I'm not glyphing for it, but what do you guys use. I'm pretty sure what I would choose...just like to hear what other people are doing.
Be gentle, I really never ever PVP'd as a priest. I'm all about PVE but I'm looking to expand since there's so much downtime between raids.
You can free 8 talent points by losing divine aegis and holy specialization. It just isn't worth it in the pvp outfit which doesn't have a lot of crit (the items itself, and also you will need some spirit pieces for regen).
Imp. Flashheal is really good. When penance is on cd, this is your "nuke" heal usually.
Desperate Prayer is awesome. Get it.
Also, 1 point in grace is usually enough.
Yeah I'm thinking maybe, at least, 1/2 grace is good.
Just for some background, the main reason I started thinking about Rapture to begin with was I see many people avoiding mana regen talents as a whole (except meditation of course) to pick up more survivability.
Ah I didn't even think about reflective shield giving rage. The talent seemed like a good idea since there's many instances where I can't do anything but sit there and heal myself because I'm getting beat on so passive damage seemed good for situations like that.
