Disc is healing only?
Now, this isn't to say you can't still Smite spam as a healer, but just be prepared to start using your heals on others, especially during bosses and large pulls.
On that note, I wish they would add 4th specs to several other classes. I miss my 2hd Enhancement Shaman from Vanilla, and Disc DPS has always seemed like a realistic candidate for an overhaul.
i played disc for years, still love it
shadows out of hand if u wanna dps though, holy for anything healing
Better to go in as a healer to smitespam alongside 3 others and rock the joint, than go in as a subpar dpser and make the healer a fifth wheel.
I also have an 86 priest that, for the heck of it, I switched to holy/disc (from holy/shadow) and do fine at that level while questing. It's also nice to quest while queuing for randoms (as a healer, naturally) and not having to worry about switching specs when the queue pops. You'll never top the DPS meters as Disc (at least I won't) but as a healer, it's a great spec to have.
Why people complain about it? Because the other healer that is not used to do anything other than heal will simply have nothing to do as the group will be always topped off.
You better queue as a Healer only for dungeons, but keep the good work, it's amazing to have this feel, to be a top dps while queued as a healer while mages, locks, hunters and rogues fail to do their only job.
At higher levels, things start to change. Other classes will do MUCH better, while atonement DPS barely does. It would be easier to que as a healer & heal through atonement.
Funny, I can go into dungeons and out DPS people at 90... (pulling 50k). Or go into LFR and be 10th on the DPS meters and 1st on the healing ones.
As long as you gear properly, Disc can DPS well.
Being king of the Looking For Retards doesn't make you into a DPS. Ditto for 5 mans. It just means you had crappy dps.
