As a Disc priest in a guild that only does 10-man content (no 264 raids for me in the near future. Whew, dodged that bullet...), raid healing as Disc is a way of life for me. Our usual raid healer composition is myself, plus either a Restoration Druid or a Restoration Shaman. For most of ToC/ToGC and ICC, we run with just two healers, as we usually need the 6th dps more then a third healer in order to meet the berserk timers.This means that both healers are tasked with keeping themselves, the two tanks, and 6 dps alive. I don't usually have the luxury of healing just the tanks (best case, each healer is assigned a tank to keep alive), and am usually tossing Shields into the raid to keep them alive long enough for Tree HoTs to do their job, or for a chain heal to arc their way, while keeping PoM bouncing between the tanks.That said, I'm use to healing with non-priests. In addition to the druid and shaman indicated above, I've trained a few healadins, raid healing myself while letting the healadins focus on the tanks, and one of the guild officers runs a holy priest alt that lets me handle all the shielding. Since I'm use to having the exclusive ability to shield members of a 10-man raid as needed, I just tell people that I don't play well with other priests.
