Running Enhance, rogue, disc at 2k mmr. We did fight a few glads/arena masters. I have 2.3k experience and 2k is currentlly in duelist range (for those that care about rating).

This is my first real MoP PvP video. (After taking break from the year long arena season of Cata). Disc has problems, mainly that it is squishy, but I hope you enjoy the video as it was made for entertainment first and foremost. My main used to be a rogue and even though there are better comps to run I wanted to play with a rogue.

Will add the music tracklist in the video.

Enhancement Shaman: Ndnrenish
Subtlety Rogue: Bleed
Disc Priest: Truewan

Disc is really sad atm. It's not so much getting trained that's the problem, because that has been around forever. They always relied on being peeled. I've been PvP'ing since season 9 and have been 2300+ since season 10 and close to 2400 in Season 11. I've played with my disc friend every season and now it's to painful to even attempt to do games. In my opinion the real issue is the mana issues. Literally he goes oom in the first 2 minutes. And just glancing at this video I could see one game where they he was at 35% in the first minute of the game. Why bilizzard is ignoring the real issue here and instead giving them a passive 20% damage reduction again, is not what the problem is.

I was considering playing disc after 5.1 hits. How do you feel about the throughput of disc compared to other healers? (raw healing power) I feel like 16k penances are inadequate.

That is 100% accurate and all priests are forced to use flash heal. While paladins and resto shamans seem to always prefer greater healing wave and Divine heal. It's just almost unreal that priests are in their current state.

Burst heals are high if set up, due to 4pc bonus, but we do have to cast a looooot of flash/greater heal to keep people up, that's why we go OOM imo.

IMO the mana issues are the major problem. Just run into a BG and throw a few heals that you would have done in Cata with no real problem and you are down to 80 or even 70% mp in under a minute if not a few seconds.

I put on my pvp gear, which ATM is only 3 Malv pieces and the rest dreadful, and a PW shield, mending, two flash heals and a greater brings me to 80% mp. Or swap a flash for a penance, same outcome. But, hoping something will be done I'm screwing around in shadow that I haven't touched in ages, and slowly buying healing pieces. I much prefer to pvp heal.

Personally I have more issues with the lack of tools to help my team go offensive.

Yes there is that too but as it stands right now even if we had those tools, which I agree we don't, I wouldn't be able to cast them being OOM so fast and all...

You should lol, people complain or get mad about it. I make videos for entertainment. It's not for some show of skill or how great disc is. Those are... (lets call them misconceptions so they don't get upset).

But yes I think you'd enjoy it, most everyone that watches does enjoy it. (And they watch it because it's entertaining).

I like you Tsilyi, you're wan of the few who keeps your head on these forums lol

How to beat a priest team. Survive 2 minutes, then win because the priest can only cast a heal every 2 seconds now. Putting the priest down for a paladin at the moment.

Awesome video, I can sure learn a few lessons from you! very nice job, especially as disc is not in the 'best' place right now :) If you're this good now, then you will be amazing in 5.1!

Disc is amazing for survivability now, but it was an overall nerf lol.
