Cents wolk has came out healing as a priest has changed so much and i am trying to find a spec that gives me more + spell power. and mana.
i call out all healers to post your spec
A better disc Build - Talent Calculator - World of Warcraft
As disc you should never be casting greater heal so 5 points to decrease its cast time is pointless. Also i just don't get priests that dont improve renew....
Abbygale, your question is wrong. Problems with mp5 and spellpower are solved with better gear, enhants and gems.
You have got to set goals: do you want to do more of AoE healing coupled with good single target healing or do you want to be more of a damage preventer, single target beast?
Then you know what to choose.
Just because a buff doesn't stack with some one elses buff doesn't mean that the talent is useless. That would be like telling a fury warrior dont get rampage, it doesnt stack with leader of the pact. The OP was wanting to increase their spellpower, IDS does exactly that, or is your advice always run with a shammy. What one is easier in your eyes?
Improved divine spirit is the weakest of the three possible buffs plus any shaman can top it regardless of spec. In any 25 man raid you should have at least 1 shaman and for 10 mans you can live without the buff. I would rather pick a spec that it better optimized and stick to it.
Rampage is also a 1 point talent that fits into the build and feral druids are a lot less common then a shaman of any spec. This is a case of it not being worth it for disc as their version of the buff is the weakest out there and they have to forgo very useful talent points to pick it up.
Take a look at :DiscPriest.com • View topic - The Discipline Priest PVE FAQ for a nice little Disc guide with some commentary on FHeal vs. GHeal and the value of Renew.
Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.
My last 3 25 man man raids and my last 5 10 man raids had no one to give that spellpower buff minus a disc priest. I cant think of one encounter in the entirety of WoW as a whole, classic, BC or LK where a lock or a shammy is required to down the boss, i can think of a couple where a priest is though...
They still provide a lot of buffs...I think it is safe to say there will never be a serious progression raid without at least 1 shaman. They provide the best spell power buff, only class with bloodlust, mana spring/tide, and they can duplicate a lot of other buffs.
As to locks...in can think of twin imps, leotheras, illidan, and I am prob missing a few.
If you know you are always going to be the only one to provide the buff sure go ahead and spec it...but that does not make it the best disc spec. You are lowering your effectiveness to give you raid the worst spell power buff out there...there are situations where this makes sense but they are the exception rather then the rule.
I am not sure what you are trying to do with your spec. You are a point away form CoH which is the most overpowered healing spell in the game at the moment and will still be a pretty damn good way to spend 1 talent point even after the nerf. You also don't have pain suppression or guardian spirit so you are missing a wipe saver.
You seem to be be torn between holy and disc but are missing the key talents from each try that lets them do what they do so you are stuck in limbo. Simply put as a priest trying to heal you are going to be significantly more effective if you pick one of the trees and commit to it.
Link me the spec you think i should go . to best benafit my raids
