Disc Priest mana regen feels like...

Priest
It just came to me. Even at 87, I've been having mana issues as Disc, despite using Mindbender and Arcane Torrent on cooldown.

The last time I had mana issues of this magnitude was in Burning Crusade, playing my Marks Hunter before Aspect of the Viper was implemented. That's about what my in-combat mana use and regen feels like, and out of combat isn't too much better.

This really isn't very fun. :|

P.S. I know my spirit's not great, this is mostly my Shadow gear at the moment.
Wait till you get to the raid. The run back to the boss after a wipe will remind you all the more of BC... >.<
Yeah, the mp5 based mana-pools from BC sucked, my fear is that it will suck again. So far history is repeating, but it is way early in the xpac still.
Its definitely not just you. If you want to raid heal just switch to 10-button Holy.

I just did...

After 3 years as Disc on both my Priest toons I came to the forums wanting to know why Disc was just feeling so weak... didn't have to look far to find the answer.

I ran some heroics tonight and enjoyed the Holy spec... it's a refreshing change although not much better than Disc I know... raid later this week.
WoL parses on regular 10man Mogu'shan vaults show a 30k hps disparity between the maximum output of discipline priests versus holy paladins and monks. I've played discipline since tier 7, and it's pretty miserable knowing that if I want to raid progression I have to not be discipline for progression.

I had the EXACT same experience last night. I was tired of being mana starved as Disc and gave Holy a try. I not only had no more mana issues, I really enjoyed the playstyle and completed a couple heroics and the three LFR bosses.
