If you're a bubble spammer as disc, for your Holy spec put Renew on the same spot on the action bar as PW:Shield is for your disc spec. Your mindset will need to change a bit from "I prevent big damage quickly" to "I am a Resto Druid" but otherwise it is the same. you aren't going to save anyone with Renew, you'll probably have to save a Surge of Light proc, a Serendipity-hasted Gheal or POH, or a Flash Heal cast.Quote:
Tomehere321Very nice guide, ty for this! I am main spec disc (your other guide helped me a lot for that too), and i just recently changed my second spec to holy. Up until now, i have been tank -and- raid healing as disc with not too much problems (im not doin H modes or anything though), and I wanted to start running as holy so that I can be more effective in my raid healing, as it is quite difficult to do as disc, especialy in 25 mans.
The thing is, I have a very hard time keeping the raid up in Holy. Im thinking that it is just my mindset as a disc, and I dont know when to use which spells. I have a shammy that I raid heal on all the time, so I'm familiar with the patterns of raid damage against most bosses, it just seems that I dont know when to cast what.
also, im a little confused about the spec, I have to put points in healing focus, devine fury, blessed recovery, or improved healing to get down to the 5th tier of talents, and in your guide you didnt really recommend any of those four talents. ty very much for reading

You can get some mileage from timing Prayer of Healing w/ Serendipity, followed by COH right before a big damage spike, like on BQL, or doggy Decimates.
Otherwise, keep Prayer of Mending on CD, cast COH when it is needed, use your Surge procs and then cast Renew, Renew, Renew...
Those talents you mentioned are filler utility talents. Take what you want. Personally, I like Divine Fury, because I keep a Shield on myself to prevent pushback (and 95% of my healing is instant cast anyway), and I like having the option to fast-cast a Greater Heal or Holy Fire/Smite combos. Gheal is still nice for 10 mans, especially if your healing team is a bit slow, or doesn't have a Resto Shaman, Disc Priest or Holy Paladin for some reason.
Whatever you do, don't take Blessed Recovery. Its bad, even for PVP (mostly because Focused Will and Inspiration are better and not many people go Holy for serious PVP)
