Power Word: Shield, Prayer of Healing, or (thinking back to Sunwell) Circle of Healing as 70% of our healing done is not how any class should be healing. I think the mana change is a bit of a Band-Aid or knee jerk fix; but something that had to be done. Personally, I think I would have rather seen a change to the way mastery scales, but that would have taken a lot more number crunching and would have affected more than just Power Word: Shield. For now, this is a solid 'fix,' but only for now. I think we'll see more tuning; the mana change is just an instant way tohttp://www.sellkina.com/ stop the madness. You could, of course, keep on spamming and leeching Innervates and chained Man Tide Totems, but it really isn't the best use of time.""People did cry out that disc needs to maintain viability, and it really has. The Rapture change makes using Power Word: Shield a bit less punitive and shines light on the way it seems the developers really want us using Power Word: Shield. Power Word: Shield is, an will continue to be, a major player in the Disc arsenal -- we just needed to adjust the manner in which we were using it. Yes, we can spam it on multiple targets, but not non-stop. I will continue to use it on multiple targets before I know a major boss ability is going to hit (Rohash's Hurricane, or Maloriak's Scorching Breath), just not non-stop the whole fight. We have a ton of other spells in our toolbox and talents that improve those spells: we should use them."" Raegx of the guild <Blood Legion> (previously <Vigil>) also got back to me with his thoughts. ""Right now discipline numbers are pretty par for the course. In some situations we can be very powerful healers ... In some situations you can feed a priest for shield spamming, but it isn't maintainable for any length of time. Fights that showcase Prayer of Healing seem to be a strength, but disc is in a weird place now. ""Our mastery is not really that great anymore and it would seem haste for Prayer of Healing is our best alternative. We also don't have any kind of AoE healing outside of Prayer of Healing, Prayer of Mending, and Holy Nova. Holy Nova has not proved very useful to me and Prayer of Healing is still group based -- we really don't have anything to fill that random AoE damage situation. Previously, we used to shield a decent number of probable targets to simulate the AoE effect that holy has with Circle of Healing, but now shielding that much is too costly on mana. It would seem group based healing is bust for discipline in terms of AoE, unless groups are specifically setup to support Prayer of Healing. Single-target healing seems to be fine, maybe a little too mana costly, but nothing big. The buffs to Rapture are welcomed and justly deserved.""As far as raid strategies go now, we are back to do what we did pre-changes. We aren't bringing less healers or more disc priests at this point in time. I suppose that means Aion did what they intended; buff survivability in PvP. However, I feel that discipline is now limited in our healing repertoire in relation to our holy priest friends.
