With all these people running around and claiming the sky is falling and we're all going to respec dps over the mana regen changes, it really makes me wonder. Just how often WERE you guys outside the 5SR for mana regen? Raiding lends itself now more than ever to quick reaction times. I know I, at least, am constantly casting Flashes, PoMs, and Circles every GCD, and it's REALLY tough for me to run out of mana. Inside-5SR regen is not changing, so mana regen isn't really going to be changing if you have this healing style.It's going to hurt our solo work, but I intend to dual-spec into spirit tap for this. Beyond that, it's really not that big a deal.

They also removed Holy Concentration's clearcasting and Serendiptity's mana restore on overheal. Those two things hurt Priest mana effeciency more then the Spirit nerf.

So, maybe I'll end fights at 4k mana now instead of 19k mana?It's really not worth threatening to respec over is my point. Adapt or fail. Like it or not, this is the new paradigm and we have to get used to it. And it's not going to be as bad as everyone is making it out to be.

Thank you! This is exactly what I was thinking. As a disc healing priest, I never worry about the fsr, OR my mana. My GCDs are taken up by heals, or dispels, or abolishes, and running out of mana has never been a problem. As long as they don't nerf our in fsr regen, I'm not worried. On a side note, what is the reason for not making it the "in combat" rule. It seems retarded to nerf a mechanic that, if it didn't exist, most people in current content wouldn't even notice.
