I play a Holy MS and PVP Disc OS. I love my holy healing and don't want to let it go... however i'm getting tired of losing pug BGs because the people I get grouped with have had their will broken (regardless of faction) due to countless loss after loss.
I'm thinking of changing my pvp disc spec to a pve disc spec. I have used the non-attonement healing spec and have enjoyed it pretty well.
From what I've read though, with an attonement build I should replace my "heal autoattack" with smite during slow points in fights. When I do this I run out of mana pretty quickly (not instantly mind you but really fast. I looked at the mana consumption of smite vs heal and smite has a much larger mana cost. My smites also are a lot faster than my "heal" spell so it just compounds.
What am I doing wrong?
I heal raids as holy. that will never change. This is in regards to heroics.
I should clarify. I was using the EJ attonement build with one or two adjustments.
