Disc, What class gives you the most trouble?

Priest
As for me, hands down, its Dk. He can shut me down pretty fast. Rogues are a pain, but i mained a rogue for a while so i can handle them just a little better.

As for the other Disc Priests out there, what class really gives you the most trouble?
I really hate running into a warrior all by myself.
I have not had a problem with warriors, myself. I just stay about 7-9 feet away from them, so they can't charge.
Sub Rogues with PvE trinkets and legendary daggers (any tier) pretty much. I can tank them for about 5-7 minutes, but being that their offensive cd is much shorter than my defensive cds, I need peels eventually.

Since I'm Holy, DKs no longer give me any trouble.
Well, atleast i'm not the only one who has probs with dks as disc. Might look into changing to holy aswell.

I'd recommend getting every slot replaced (if needed) for this season's gear (390 ruthless, cata) before trying out holy.

150k hp, 4200-4300 resil, and 9k+ SP buffed would be fine to switch on over to Holy, but not before then.
For me frost dk because of their burst dps and uh dk for its slow but steady shutdown of your heals. Warr can be annoying too. I as long as I have over 20% crit rating in addition to HW:Serenity I can pretty much have have a renew that crits for 8k and a PoM for 25-30k ever 10 sec. Blessed Resil helps with addition self healing. I tend to dispel all of my enemies buff so that they wont hit me for that hard.
I've also found crit rating seems to be helping. And i also dispell their buffs/cure disease myself.
As Holy you don't need to stack crit rating, and if you're Disc you should stack mastery once you feel comfortable with your mana regen.
At the top end of skill, very good rogues.

Medium level of skill, unholy Dks.

I'm actually surprised at how many of you are holy.

^_^ It's definitely a viable spec.
I know that crit stacking is not important to holy spec in pvp because of rng, but from my experience, while HW: Serenity is up, my renew crits often doubling its regular hot and my PoM always crit. I hardly have to cast heals on my self other then only having to heal others. I rbg, I have 25% crit rating plus the 25% crit from HW: Serenity=%50% chance. As far as peeling enemies, i just tend to dispel all their buffs and off me too. Fear and hopefully they trinket out of it only to be chastised, bubble and then run or activate nitro boots or mc them off me.
I like to have high crit rating so my heals would crit alot since their are alot of heal reducing debuffs out such as mortal strike and necrotic strike that steals heals. Since we dont have the ability to reduce inc damage like disc, instead we are given blessed resil, test of faith, and GS, I find it valuable to increased my heals through crits.
The only class that gives me any trouble in PvP is other priests. I don't know why people have so much trouble with Death Knights, unless you're trying to run around and get away from them.

As far as PvE is concerned though, I find that Arcane mages and rogues who are not Combat spec tend to die the most, and give me the most trouble when trying to heal them. After them, it's Enhancement and Pikachu spec shamans.

Are you the Angel who used to talk to us in the @day thread???

Well, that was my point; with all the crit you gain from the spec, it's rather unnecessary to stack crit. I have 10% passive crit mostly from Intellect, 10% from Chakra state, and 25% from casting Serenity, which is 45% total (50% w/ SubRogue/FurWar/Etc.). Since my crit is so high without me stacking the stat itself, aiming for more Spirit I've found yields the best results because it allows me to be more offensive with my dispels, and I can hard cast Flash/Greater Heals more without worrying too much about my mana consumption.
Unholy dks seem to be able to catch every heal between mind freeze, death grip and their pet stun. I end up having to fake-cast or bait them with manaburn on their healer to get any heals off at all.

Sub rogues only if they're paired with a good healer, but only because I have to go full defensive for rogues but need to be offensive against another healer.

And hunters. Omg I hate hunters on every pvp character of mine.
Definitely dks. I can tank through just about anything, but those guys are a pain.

I am!
Are you the Vixie that used to get all hot and bothered by my man-on-man inuendo?
