I kinda lol'd at the "non-Discipline" part. They really don't want you to think about playing Holy, eh?

I might end up canceling my subscription if this is what goes live, but I'm going to have some faith that blizzard will see how absolutely useless these bonuses are for holy priests.
I guess Lightwell will get a "cheap" re-design: Pulse-type single target smart healing.
Ofc they'll say something like " Ok now you got one more CD. You're fine. No, your mana regene is not sub-par!"
as a Disc/shadow priest I'm pretty happy with the bonuses...
but as an Attonement Disc I'm a little upset... once again we get slighted on bonuses, it's not a HUGE change, just make the bonus 'yadda yadda 25% reduction for you holy spells, not healing spells, that was the bonus would still work with Smite and Holy Fire. Tbh though this is such a minor thing that I dont mind if it goes live as is.
sorry for all you 'non-disc' priests... damn blizz suck sometimes.
Check out the blog I wrote for LEGENDARY indie label Flicknife Records:
Blog 7 is here! Containing a sample chapter from the upcoming book SHARP! Flicknife Records and Other Adventures.
If you feel that way, I don't think you are playing Atonement in the intended way.

As far as the disc 4p goes, the 100% increase to PW:S should really be a proc off of all healing spells. Doesn't push you into bubblespam, doesn't mess up rapture for those of us who really only shield for the mana return, but still maintains the flavor of RNG. Plus its a chance for me to add yet another power aura.
Regarding the healing 4piece, I think it'd be slightly more interesting to have a 10% chance to proc a free bubble on the lowest health target in a certain range either off of a PW:Shield or healing spells. Rather than increasing the bubble's strength.
Does someone think like me that the 2pieces bonus for discipline won't be additive with the mana reduction of power infusion? Meaning the bonus will reduce the mana cost of the already reduced spell, so 25% of the 80%?
ow at first i thought "using the lightwell" is clicking on the lightwell, as opposed to casting or placing the lightwell. guess it'd be too good to be true >.<
I'd like to see a 100% chance to proc a raid-wide bubble when you cast PW:S. The raid-wide bubble, of course, wouldn't be as strong as a normal PW:S (10% too much?), and could also be limited to a number of targets and/or have a range limit. It could be made to not stack with itself so as to not encourage bubble spamming 3-5 people to stack shields on raid. I think this could add some interesting decisions on when to bubble outside of Rapture procs. Big AoE incoming? Shield at least 1 person to grab some small bubbles on raid (or the random few) to mitigate the damage a little. Gives us a weaker "flavor" of WotLK bubble-botting without being over-the-top-spamming-1-button.
And yeah, the "non-Discipline" part is pretty funny. For the Warlock bonuses, it kind of makes sens to say "non-Demonology," as they're referring to two specs (Aff and Destro). "Non-Discipline" only refers to "Holy" (Shadow doesn't get Lightwell) which requires less keystrokes.
