Ghostcrawler, on Twitter, 15 hours ago :

We made a buff to PoH and PoM (for D&H) yesterday.

It may not be live if you haven't seen it. I don't want to get in the habit of announcing hotfixes on Twitter. +25% PoH and PoM.


Edit. The hotfix is now live. Enjoy your bigger heals!

This is most for Holy priests. Disc priests remain into oblivion.

I cast both Prayer of Healing and Prayer of Mending quite often as Disc. o_O

15% blanket nerf to all healing and shields (pvp only).

I guess they REALLY hate discs

By increasing the Healing that means both PoH and PoM have higher Heal Per Mana (HPM). It should technically alleviate some mana stress for PvE. PW:S also should not see liberal use.

For PvP obviously this does almost nothing to help, but that's not my venue anyway.

This is a huge buff. I'm surprised there aren't more priests rejoycing over this. I know some of us have concerns that touch other spells or mechanics, but it's still a great buff for both disc and holy.

There are not more people rejoicing because it is a band-aid fix. I'm happy, sure, but it does not address the issues of PoH's limitations, poor mana, less-than-optimal tier 90 talents, Archangel and Spirit Shell's antagonism, etc. We're need a bit more things to be balanced and less clunky, but this is a good start.

mana is fine....but you have under 8k combat regen so...thats why.

Spirit Shell and PoM is your new "bread and butter" disc is never good at the beginning of an expansion...mainly because PWS costs wayyyyyy more than what it gives back. Holy is very competitive with the other classes in pve (...maybe not monks...theyre just so good lol) but as disc you really need to utilize divine insight and spirit shell. you cannot be bubble spamming like you could in DS at the moment

Disc can heal a little better and harder now, but theyll still go OOM relatively quick, Id assume.

Now for Holy, the buff is quite nice seeing as PoH is a last resort, 1 time/1 stop healing filler when all others are still on CD with group wide damage.

Yay?

i started using disc when i hit 90 for heroics cuz i just couldn't dish out big enough heals and retain enough mana. I find disc to be more mana proficient than holy for some reason. I've done the first three bosses in LFR twice once as holy and once as disc, and i honestly found it easier to heal and keep up mana as disc. Maybe i just haven't seen that buff two those two spells yet, but i feel like holy has less throughput per cast than Disc.
