Why is Spirit so absolutely important to Discipline Priests? I've been cursed out several times now for not stacking it, but nobody will ever say why I should be.
But, for future reference, the reason why Spirit is important to Disc Priests is twofold.
That extra mana can be converted into more healing - more shields, more Greater Heals, more Smites, etc. This is in addition to the base regen I get for having the amount of Spirit that I have.
Spirit does not increase our spells' healing output, nor does it alter the time in which it takes for us to cast them. Thus it has no direct effect on throughput.
Spirit has effects on mana. This means we can continue our throughput for longer before running out of mana, but to say Spirit is a throughput stat is erroneous. It is a longevity stat. When driving a car the size of your gas tank has no bearing on the speed at which you travel, it merely affects how long you can sustain that speed.
Now, if you want to say that Spirit allows you to do things like spam Bubbles that is OK. But don't say that you have more throughput, because any Priest can spam Bubbles until running OOM. The strength of your bubbles and the speed at which you cast them are your throughput. Whether or not you'll run OOM due to this practice is a matter of longevity.
