Less PvP power isn't really bad right now since intellect is king, next patch they won't be as viable since PvP power is supposed to be better.

Discipline gameplay is more preemptive, countered more by offensive dispels, but less affected by crowd control if
offensive dispels aren't involved.
Holy gameplay is more reactionary, countered less by offensive dispels, has more utility and AoE healing capabilities, but affected more by crowd control in general.
Our mana regeneration sucks compared to other healers (Mistweave Monks possibly being the only exception), regardless of specialization.
How do they do with warriors/rogues on them in random bgs without the reliable peels of a rated group?
@Warrior: Use Void Tendrils to force trinket. Use Fear/Chastise to force Berserker Rage, then Fear/Chastise after Berserker Rage expires. Keep yourself alive till Void Tendrils comes back up at which point Trinket will be on cooldown and you'll have plenty of breathing room. Switch to Inner Fire during Recklessness and don't be afraid to use Chastise as it will negate his uptime.
/cancelaura Chakra: Serenity
/cancelaura Chakra: Sanctuary
/cast Holy Word: Chastise(Use this macro instead of switching to Chakra: Chastise, as this macro will not incur the Chakra cooldown, which can mean the difference between living or dying)
@Rogue: I don't use Trinket until I see Shadow Dance, so I'd be careful using it at the first Kidney Shot, pay attention to his buffs first, otherwise 20 seconds later when Kidney Shot comes off cooldown he can Shadow Dance and you have no way to escape. Use Inner Fire during Shadow Dance.
When you need to get someone from low to 100%, what are you guys using for burst single target burst healing?
If no one is near me, Void Shift. Otherwise:
Power Word: Shield --> Prayer of Mending --> Holy Word: Serenity --> x1 Flash Heal (if silence risk is high) / x2 Flash Heal (if silence risk is low)
Generally I reserve Guardian Spirit for myself or a flag carrier in Random BGs.
