I'm striving to be a well rounded disc priest, but feel like I'm struggling to keep up. I know that atonement is pretty effective, but I can't understand how when utilizing the full disc priest toolkit my healing output seems to lag behind disc priests that I outgear and really just spam smite except for emergency situations.
Are there certain non-obvious tricks that people use to squeeze out extra healing power? We're really just starting to solidify a raid group and get into raiding non-LFR and i want to address this before it's an even bigger issue. I know my gear isn't great, but I feel like at 499 I shouldn't be having a hard time healing people up on the platforms on Sha in TES.
