That's not to say there aren't issues, there absolutely ARE. I just think "vodka says priests are terrible omg my rl is going to make me sit/reroll" is a bit.. overdramatic

To be blunt, yes, Healing priests are that bad right now. Disc is in very dire straights.
Disc, the last expansion, had the best regen. But they also got average healing done by spells cast. They worked, because they could go to town with expensive heals but could regen matter at an amazing rate when played well.
They lost their regen and did not get anything back in return. Also, by keeping PW:S as a 6 second cooldown, they lose a ton of their utility, and their ability to do much on high movement fights. Disc lost the things that made them potent and got nothing in return.
Lastly, the whole PW: Solace in conjunction with all the Attonement heals make little sense when combined. Attonement was genereally used as a filler when not much is going on. Now, you have to get your 5 stack, get the 25% healing buff, then spam PW: Solace when time allows.
It is just awkward.
I doubt it would ever happen, but I would love to see spirit shell turned into a stance. One side would be healing. The other side would turn all heals to absorbs.
