So they already screwed with...

You do know how Atonement works right?

Because reading this post I don't think you do


Because it would not at all be possible to make the modifier for damage->healing a higher percentage to make up for the damage decrease, right?


That^^^

I like disc, but I definitely agree that even how it is on live the damage from atonement is too high, it would be even higher if not adjusted from how it is on ptr...they need to add a modifier and bring that damage down, not a HUGE amount but some. If it stayed at the same amount of damage it's doing right now it would be ok but it doesn't need to increase.

the rest of my toolkit.

Now:

We have heard some concerns that Atonement damage is higher than intended, so we are checking that out, but no changes to announce yet.


Aren't these the kind of changes you make between expansions? Not tiers???

Just stop.

Freaking, Fracking, Fricking, STOP MESSING WITH IT.


Welcome to your first WoW patch I guess.

Er, have you done any testing on PTR as disc? We are not weak.


Have you? Because I would honestly like to know how these are playing out on the PTR. I have no time/guild isn't doing PTR testing this time, but judging from the streams of the 25m testing, the Disc priests are very very low. Again, just from what I've seen.

I realize this is mostly a pve discussion, and I haven't been on the PTR personally, but I've been reading a lot about healing priest pvp and top ranked players seem to agree priests will be pretty great. I'm psyched about that at least.

I do sympathize with what looks like a potentially dramatic playstyle change for pve though.

Yes.

If anything Disc needs additional nerfs.

...did you miss the post a while back about something akin to half atonement damage, healing from atonement at 200% of damage dealt..?

Also, it honestly just comes off sounding like the damage portion is bugged on ptr. That's it.
