Holy priest healing is like prot warrior tanking in terms of specialization.Prot Pally = aoe tankDruid = high armor, single target tank.warrior = "jack of all trades" tank, good at everything, not the best at anything.Holy Pally = single target healerResto Shaman = aoe healerResto Druid = over time healer, best for stabilizationHoly priest = "jack of all trades" healer, good at everything, not the best at anything.Like prot warriors, we're not the best at any one sub-role, but the second best at all of them. No other healing class has the same number of tools at their disposal. Where we excel is in our ability to adapt to almost any situation. Personally, this is why I love healing on my priest and hate it on my Paladin. Having 7-8 responses to any one situation (as opposed to three for a pally) is what makes the class fun, in my opinion.CoH is a pretty situational spell, but is an absolutely essential tool in a holy priest's arsenal. It sucks in most 5 mans and will run you oom in 5 seconds without a mana battery, but without it, there would be little reason to bring a holy priest to a raid. We'd essentially be third rate single target healers that could double as a crappy resto shaman every 10 seconds.
