So what you're saying is Disc is kinda viable, maybe kinda....Go holy?

No, I *THINK* what was being said is that there's no reason if you have 3 or 4 other healers that you couldn't allow 1 super-specialized shield machine to be in the mix.As evidenced by the amount of chat on my server about "what's the best spec for _____ class," I think people are too hung up on "winning the game". Thankfully Blizzard is working to change the need for "the one right spec," but it'll be a while before people accept them.I look at it this way: If you are running dungeons or instances, I understand the need to minimize repair bills/wipes/etc. However, my goal in the game is not "to never die ever, so I need the cookie cutter spec with *these* exact enchants and *these* exact gems." Cherish this time right now with nerfed dungeons and let people experiment. If wiping in a dungeon or having a group fall apart ruins your entire day, maybe you should take a deep breath and step away from the computer for a second.

My issue is ... "no renew"? No hot on the tank from the tank healer? I keep hots on the tanks when I'm raid healing. Hots on tanks, always. Anyone other than the author disagree?

No, He was saying that its too early to tell, but that discipline has some very strong potential given its artillery. Spec how you want to spec is my advice. If it doesn't feel right, then change it to something you like. Each tree has its strengths and weaknesses alike. If you like discipline more...go discipline...you will surely bring something to the raid, nonetheless. THE IDEA IS THAT YOU HAVE A CHOICE. How you play, will determine when you play.

and to the no renew thing, one of the main reasons he isn't using it is because he only has 5 points to spend in holy, and the extra crit from holy spec talent is worth more due to divine aegis. when we all hit 80 and have 10 more talent points to play with it could very well get picked up and then renew will be an important spell again.

There's also the issue that you can only get 2 major glyphs as Matt points out. With a third you can pick up the renew glyph, along with the shield and flash heal ones.You'd probably spec something like this at 80:http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?talent=bVcbuhxtrxowfRtfx0cSo with that renew glyph you've got some sweet renews still - and you get to pick up inspiration, which should be sweet with high crit and penance.
