Um...o_O

My mischievous side urges me to tell you, "Blood DKs" out of spite.

If you want to learn to heal on a Priest, you need to be comfortable with both specs. They each have their place depending on your raid comp and strat.

Yup, playing a priest either requires you to know each spec well enough to play it at least moderately well for fights where it might help. Or, as an alternative, finding a raid group that doesn't care/doesn't require that of you (i.e. 25 man letting you stay holy.)

Pries in a few words:

Shadow: Decidedly Decent Dedicated DPS.

(it's too early for me to come up with any better alliterations)

Holy: Big Heals for Big Mana. Raid wide coverage is easy. Literally a mana to fun converter.

Disc: A bit of this (dps), a bit of that (raid wide healing) and a whole truckload of bubbles (PW: Shield, Spirit Shell, Divine Aegis).

Seems like this question gets asked at least once per week.

My 2 copper is Disc. Pretty easy to pick up and you can smite your way to victory while also having holy fire and off pen. It is a super easy leveling spec as you really don't need a shadow spec until much later on as compared to most other healers, less mW of course. They also have less mana restrictions than holy does.

Holy & Disc are both very close to eachother right now. The "best" depends on healing comp and specific fight.

It's looking like Disc is getting a small nerf in 5.3

I agree with you but with that said Holy has a vast array of healing tools.

Honestly, the spec you enjoy and have fun with is most likely going to be the spec that performs better for you. If you enjoy the holy playstyle a lot more than disc you will likely not perform as well if you were disc even though it tops charts for most people. Both specs are completely viable so play what you enjoy :)

Healing isn't about "winnning"; if you want to "win" meters, stick to dps.

I started out wanting to be disc. Then I got recruited into a raid as Holy.

I still like disc. Atonement is fun on some fights and I enjoy focusing on the tanks more than the raid with my more direct heals.

I have developed a love for Holy too though. The burst AoE is just great fun on some fights. I love doing Mag as Holy. My healing look bleh at first. Then the rampages start coming and I get to show off the burst AoE that Holy is gorgeous for.

Seriously, I think they are both very compelling and both have their place.

This response is in every "what's best" question on every forum and is totally worthless, even if it is true.
