I really find it hard to believe he didn't address any of my disc concerns. Primarily as they relate to the Penance nerf and the fact that none of our other spells are keeping up with the damage output of the hardest hm bosses. Nor did he address that Disc priests, I think the only caster class in the entire game that gets no scaling with their principle stats. Nor the lack of stackability, and Blizz really dodged the problems with the combat log for disc priests. Great if we install another mod we might be able to show our contribution. Just in time for the Penance nerf + avoidance nerfs to ensure we don't get a raid spot for Algaon 10 or Steelbreaker 10.

Now I have to say that may be over-stating things a little. Disc priests benefit from spellpower, and their healing is helped a lot with crit. Haste is less than fantastic, especially with Borrowed Time, however there are other class specs that have a lot more trouble with haste (*cough* Shadow Priest *cough*). Spirit is a relatively crappy stat, and other caster specs can make more use of it, sure, but honestly I don't think any healer would give up, say, spellpower or crit for spirit. The increase in effectiveness of your spells with additional spellpower and whatever procs you gain on crit usually outweigh whatever piddly gains you get from Spirit. I'm in no way happy with the way Priests have been developed. In fact I canceled my account so that I don't have to pay Blizz to continue not fixing the Shadow tree... however, Priests do in fact scale with their principle stats, just not as well as other healers I'd say (i.e. infinite mana HoT-o-matic Druids and infinite mana tank-blastin Pallys).
