I don't really see how full disc is "invalueable"... Being a long term holy priest power word sheild is a mana inefficient spell. 1 CoH will do far more over all healing for your raid than absorbing 1k damage for 1 target... even for gimmick fights its useless. I feel this article is missleading people into thinking that DISC is an actual raid viable spec. you gimp your healing in every facet of the game. your flash heals don't do as much, your Gheals don't heal as much, the range of some spells, ect ect. you have no CoH. If you go as this spec to a 25 man... you are really 24.5 manning.Again im saying for raiding potential. I don't care if you healed a ezmode heroic as disc you could do it as shadow and brag about the dps you were putting out and how viable your dps is while you still healed the group.

I really don't see how full disc is "useless", but I haven't tried it yet so I can't make any real claims. I suggest you follow suit.Also, please don't say anything about "obviousness" or "common sense". People used common sense to conclude that heavy objects should fall faster than light ones. It wasn't until someone tested it out 'til the actual truth was discovered.Theorycrafting can be easy (especially if you don't actually look at the talents and spells you are judging), but trying them out is another matter. I'm hoping to try full disc in the next few days. In the mean time, I will avoid any judgment on the viability of that spec. Please do the same.

Whoops. I had an extra 'until' in that sentence. Please don’t let my grammar error take away from my message.

I have looked at the talents, I DO play DISC for PVP (if you will note in my comment that I said for raid healing) If you look at the talents and don't come to the conclusion that DISC is useless for raid healing and feel the need to waste gold to find out for yourself, then so be it. if you are doing it for some fun or don't want to bother speccing a "healing" spec to raid/pvp/daily/rep grind due to the gimped state of the game. which I'll do (not cause its a good healing spec, because I wouldn't run otherwise. many of the people have done the theorycrafting for you, and posted on the internet on why its not viable. the same reason "smite" isn't viable DPS, even though there will be claims of topping damage meters, which im sure they have... its not that its a great spec its just they are more geared/better player than the dps around them. im sure you can get the job done as disc, but why would you want to gimp yourself? which is why I feel the article is missleading... you can do it... just not to your full potential.
