"Disc healing is meant for tank healing."Has Blizz said this? I've always gone Holy and was under the impression that while Disc was a very good single-target raid healing build, that Disc was actually meant as a PvP healing spec with survivability.As for PoM -- If your PoM bounces to a shielded toon that's just the breaks; it's completely out of your control. On the other hand, if you're casting PoM onto a shielded toon, then you're taking your chances as to whether the PoM will bounce or expire.I don't think it's worth Blizzard design and development time to bother with PoM unless they're doing an overall class review.

No, Blizzard did not say that Disc is meant for tank healing. Nor did Blizzard say Disc is only meant for PVP. Blizzard would never come out and say that one class and/or spec is only meant to do a certain thing, because no tree is ever ACTUALLY meant to be only PVE or PVP. Talents are customizable enough that you can go either way. Disc may have been used for PVP in the past, but welcome to WOTLK where Disc is perfectly viable for PVE healing, and does a great job of it at that.

"Disc healing is meant for tank healing."This should have said, "Disc is great for tank healing but also mitigates a lot of raid damage if your priest plays smart." On a typical TOC 25 run I'll throw over 1000 PW:S. When you do the math that accounts for a gigantic amount of damage your other healers don't have to heal. When tracking mitigation in with other total healing, (when are they gonna fix recount to do this?) most of the time I finish on top of total output and have the lowest % overheal. A good Disc priest knows that his/her job is to buy the AoE healers time to respond. Shielding does just that.
