I see everyone saying Disc is overpowered, and it may well be, but I don't get it any more. While I was doing more than fine healing in Cata (keeping everyone alive + topping the DPS), I can't seem to get the hang of it in MoP and feel like a heaping helping of fail. Is there a good guide somewhere to doing Disc in current dungeons and raids? I read over Noxxic and Icy Veins' guides and came away not very enlightened. I used to do heavy Smite healing but that doesn't seem to work any more; everyone dies. So I'm trying more absorbs but can't keep up and I'm getting discouraged.
Yeah, I know, I suck, L2P. Thanks.
To be honest, there are a lot of fights I'm fine on and can happily go to town on and other fights that can bring me to my knees right now leveling. That last fight in Shado-Pan? Ugh, PoH spam with spirit shell got me through it but yuck.
All I can say (having run a Resto Shammy instead of a Priest in Cata) is absorbs is the name of the game, at least for me leveling. Things just go a lot better when there's bubbles everywhere so that's what I normally do on bosses and high damage trash. I do still smite heal, it just depends on the fight. If I'm bored, smite heal. If things are going all out chaotic or things are going FUBAR - then AoE spam with keeping the tank up (or toughest DPS/pet should the tank fall).
Looking at our absorbs I can definitely see why we would be considered OP at 90 and at least in some decent gear. Doesn't feel like it at times while leveling does it?
