    Trauma vs Midnight Sun (heroic)

    I'm asking all experienced discipline/holy priests out there. Which is better, Trauma (normal) or Midnight Sun (heroic), for each spec?

    I strongly hope this is trolling.

    Trauma's good for exactly one thing: Disenchanting it.

    This. They tried to make a nice proc weapon and it fell very, very short.

    Go away, you with your orange hammer! For those of us without Val'anyr, it's actually not that bad (accounts for 8% of my total healing output on some fights, and 3% more on the average non-aura). A couple stats on weapons will not account for the lower 3%, let alone 8%.

    Trauma's good, people just don't put it to good use.

    Trauma, best in slot for any healer...especially raid healers....

    So to answer your question, Trauma.

    I like two-handed weaponry. Sure, it may not have any proccs and sexy stuff, but they work.

    @ Danner http://www.wowhead.com/item=50725 this is my puppy, I just need to scratch out the other caster's eyes.

    Some lovely mixed opinions here, but I feel the full extent of it is only used on certain fights. Only use it when you are constantly casting, be it Renew spam or Shield spam and if I managed to post before harky or a few others, they will say that PW:S is not the most effective way to heal as Disc so yeah.

    If you don't make frequent use of multi-target spells do not take Trauma. It's bad. If you do then use it on any fight in ICC with a damage aura. It's even worth using without an off-hand item as Holy on Festergut, BQ, Putricide and Sindragosa unless you have Val'anyr. I currently switch between heroic Trauma and heroic Dying Light depending on the fight as Holy and use Trauma as Disc only because it results in higher SP and I'm fully GCD capped so I don't need haste.

    I would take Midnight Sun. Haste is good. Socket is good. Nothing against Trauma but it's probably the ugliest mace in the game. >

    Sometimes I don't agree with harky, but this is word for word what I would say.

    If I had to choose between two options the TC said, Trauma hands down.

    The raw spellpower on trauma makes it roughly the same as midnight sun.
    Every little bit of healing you do has a chance to proc this wep.
    Renew spam style Priest, PoH Glyph, you have good use out of this wep.

    Isnt even worth mentioning as disc.

    Re: Trauma vs Midnight Sun (heroic)

    It is extremely good for disc(bubble bots) due to the high SP. I wouldn't say it isn't worth mentioning at all.
