5.3 Holy Priest PVP - Resilience Change...

Priest
Does anyone have an idea how the removal of Resilience will affect holy in 5.3?

Will holy still be viable?
Uhh, why wouldn't it be? With the added spell power buff to healing we will be even better imo, we already have great burst healing and will make it that much better to be honest. We can still gem and enchant resilience btw, just can't get it from gear.
Every player will have a base resilience of 65%, so it will be viable up to a certain amount of pvp power of the enemy attacking you.
Yes.
Holy will not be viable, mostly because they lack specific, PvP oriented tools, such as "Inner Focus." or effective tools, like "Pain Suppression"

Not that Disc is particularly viable. It's just not terrible as it used to be. Even an average priest can go far in in PMR, taken over another healer simply because of Mass Dispel. A very strong priest can go to high ratings outside of PMR.

Why bother posting if you're going to post such nonsense? Holy doesn't need Inner focus because most holy casts are instant and holy priests rarely need to hard cast the way disc does. And while GS isn't equal to PS, it's still a decent save in many situations.

Disc isn't viable ehh? Is that why disc priests are the 2nd most popular healer right now on high rated teams? If it wasn't for shadow being so overpowered we'd probably see even more disc priests but no team is going to take a shadow and disc.

Anyway, these changes to resilience won't hurt priests any more than they would hurt any other healer. If anything having a cap to resilience may strength us since we have 30% focused will on top of our resil.
well said gnomgnamstyl. Boy is venaliter stupid! so many airheads that polute wow it's uncleansable. God help us!

Instead of viable, I should have said strong. Was a typo. Anyway, the answer to your question is Mass Dispel.

Disc is STRONG. It just so happens that shadow is the FOTM so you're going to see much less disc priests and much more r-shamans.
