disc is everywhere. But is it because holy is just plain bad, or people just dont know? I was reading a topic on priests in the wow forums and quote abit of someones reply here. This guy may be on to something.
I heal on paladin and druid and i can see what he means about them in 5 mans.The problems with Disc are more simple - basically, Disc is a pre-healer and Holy is a post-healer. If you switch from being a post-healer to a pre-healer, suddenly you have to break the habit of sitting around waiting for damage to happen (how Holy heals) to anticipating damage with a PW:S (how Disc heals). Most healers are post-healers - Shaman, Paladins, and even Resto Druids (Resto can Pre-heal like Disc, but it isn't as mana efficient and they can still get away with being post-healers since a HOT will still heal even if the target has already taken
damage and won't be taking any more in awhile - which is not true with absorbs). So unless they've been playing the spec for a long time, most healers struggle switching to a true pre-healing mindset when playing Disc.
