    On the bright side, you're using one of the effective strats for a disc priest in that fight (PoM is still our best heal by far there). I'm currently using the hybrid spec PoH for heroic, but am thinking about looking into the HN strat that seems to be growing in popularity.

    This is actually inaccurate. Yes, the absorb cap is there, but only for PW:S itself. Even pure PW:S spam results in more than this due to crits from the PW:S Glyph. Not a lot higher, no, but it does go higher. 10k+ effecting absorbs + healing on Valks is possible without a great deal of effort. Recount also isn't bugged for the encounter; it simply gives you 100% effective absorbs. At least mine does, the expected absorbs and guessed absorbs always match up close enough to say it's working.

    When you figure that PoM is producing 15k+ healing per cast and Penance is doing 10k+ average those numbers start looking closer and closer to being possible. If you figure PW:S is doing 9k per cast as the baseline, then 15k per cast on PoM and 10k per cast on Penance 10k+ isn't far fetched. Especially if DA absorbs are figured in from the PW:S Glyph, Penance and PoM.

    Especially fun on normal 10/25 so you can pretend to be upset at the other healers not pulling their weight by only putting out 2k HPS on Valks as a Druid. :P
