Having some mana issues =(

So, my guild needed healers and I decided to go from Shadow to Discipline to help them out (I love my guild so I'd do anything to help them)

I've noticed I do have some mana issues during fights / trash. I try to keep PoM on CD, I like to do Atonement healing (I don't know why, I just love Atonement healing) I use Renew to help heal up damage and spam PoH when heavy damage is going out, or I just spam Smite, Holy Fire and Penance + Renew and PoM.

Now given I'm still working on my gear, I'm just wondering if it's going to get better. Or if these are issues I am expected to face until I am more geared.

Or, if I'm just plain doing something wrong >_>.

I mostly use Inner Fire, but sometimes I switch to Inner Will..not sure which I should be using mostly..

Any tips are welcome =) (I actually have grown to love playing Disc)

You are shielding the tanks with PW:S, correct? Otherwise you're not getting any Rapture procs, which is a huge, huge portion of Disc's mana regen.

Yup, I try to keep the shield on tanks as much as possible.

Well your spirit is quite low, so that is probably a big portion of it. Make sure to get an addon to track your rapture cooldown for you so you aren't wasting shields if you don't have the spirit to afford them yet. I use Ingela's Rapture.

Alright, I'll try that, and should I use Inner will or fire mostly?

You should almost always be using Inner Fire.

I disagree with this.

With her low Spirit, she can't afford to use Inner Fire at the moment. In Inner Will, PW: Shield costs 15555 mana. In Inner Fire it's 18,300. With only 5874 Spirit, she's only getting 11,748 mana back from Rapture. She needs to be spending as little mana as possible.
