Disc vs Holy on Normal Beth
My priest is disc/shadow. I get a lot of flack sometimes from the guild for not being disc/holy. I feel that I am a very good disc priest. I do not have mana issues, tanks are not dieing, my other healing targets are not dieing, I'm not dieing and my gear (with the exception of a gem or two) is fairly optimal. Maybe I'm missing something..(?).
The issue that seems to be current is that we're working on Beth in normal mode (10m). We've myself, another priest who is holy/disc priest and generally either a shaman or a druid as heals. We send up the tank, 1 dps (melee) and the second priest (who has been running disc as well for this fight), while myself and the 3rd healer stay below. The folks down below are taking the AoE damage but we're keeping them up. The priest up above often dies, or their tank dies. I've made the suggestion that I go up top with the tank/dps and the other priest stay down, go holy and help heal the raid. I'm continuously told no - but I don't understand why that is. The raid leader wants a lightwell down below. If we simply switch positions, a lightwell could be down below.
I've been running disc. since I rolled my priest in Wrath. If I'm doing it wrong - someone please tell me.
I guess my main question is - when it comes to Beth, who's ideally on top?
I'm not real sure how to insert links etc, but my name is Astani, I play on horde- kirin tor. my haste is low w/o buffs, but with the raid buffs, roughly 12-13% and my mastery is about 17%. I don't recall what my crit is off the top of my head b/c...well, I just don't lol. I apologize in advance if this should be under a different forum.
