I have no idea what the problem is, my heals have always been awesome, but as soon as I got to pandaira, it went from awesome to completely sucking.
My disc priest is level 86, full pandaira gear, mostly greens, but full pandaria.
My heals don't even touch other players' life, what I have always liked doing the most on this character is disc healing in pvp, and it's always been very fun- until now. now it's just some kind of sick game.
My greater heals healing people my level for 10% life, flash heals only healing as much as a renew tick, ~3-5% life.
Sometimes I'll get lucky and if the person doesn't have a massive health pool, flash heal will heal above 15%. Greater heal crits will heal about 1/3 of their lfie.
NO ONE seems to know what I'm talking about. I've asked guild members, people in battlegrounds, no one seems to be having the same problem as I. And no, it's not skill. no amount of skill can make a heal, heal for more.
If i see another player down to say 10% life, I'll have to spam greater heal 5+ times just to bring it up to green.
People in battlegrounds were saying disc priests are not healers, they're just supposed to go around bubbling people. My shield absorbs about 44k, which is two flash heals, which is MAYBE 15-20% life absolute tops, and if I just bubble people one after another, I go oom in about 30 seconds. Not to mention spamming flash heals just to bring one person or my own life up, will oom me really fast. If i'm getting attacked there's not a whole lot I can do, my heals heal me more than other people because my life isn't near as high, but they still blow. Greater heal crit will heal me maybe 40%
What is wrong guys...? I've always loved my priest, loved loved loved. Disc heals in pvp has always been so much fun...but recently, getting to pandaria...I'm having the opposite of fun, it's like some sick joke. I'm starting to resent my priest. I feel completely useless in pvp. I know the 85-89 bracket in bgs needs healers desperately, and I would be more than happy to be a part of that- but I'm useless, I can't heal for !@#$.
I've always felt important in bgs on my disc priest healing. On my rogue in pvp I feel like I have no control over the outcome- since I'm just another dps. But good heals can win battlegrounds, and its helped me win all the way until pandaria.
Not to mention battlegrounds in the 85-89 bracket are extremely unfair and unbalanced, horde loses nearly every single one of them. I have never won isle of conquest since I got this expansion, and I mean NEVER. all the others are pretty much the same, horde loses over and over and over and over again. I had this problem on my rogue in this bracket, but leveling my priest I kept telling myself I can turn things around because I've always been a competent and good healer, but boy was I wrong..If anything I'm hurting our chances. A healer hurting the group? who would have thought..I'm so frustrated right now. =(
My heals would have to more than double for me to say there isn't a problem.
People say disc priest are op? don't make me laugh, that's BS.
