Gabe is right, but I'd caution against every priest speccing out of ImpDS. I say this as a CoH priest who spec'd out as there was plenty of spirit buffs about in my raids and who can now also make mincemeat of the healing meters.CoH is great, and can top groups off brilliantly. In a lot of early fights however this is not raid-critical healing. It's often damage that any other healer could cover for in time, albeit not as fast and maybe not as efficiently (not sure, I haven't worked the numbers against say a paladin topping the raid up). In fact, it's often damage that could be covered by a bandage (at the cost of dps)... or if I could train raid members to make good use of a lightwell... but that'll never happen ;-)Ideally someone should have ImpDS. CoH is great but it often leads to priests covering healing that could be done by another healer, spreading the mana drain across the raid more effectively, and not leading to the temptation to turn yourself into an insane aggro-generator - although there's something to be said for learning aggro control with CoH early exactly as anonymoose says.If you can, arrange with your holy priests so that the one with lowest +healing specs into ImpDS and the rest take CoH, so that the CoHs you do have are the most effective.ImpDS should still be first on the list of priorities, but it does only need one raider to have it and after that there's no reason not to have priests learning to use CoH most effectively at an early stage in raid progression.
