The T10 4P bonus for holy priests does not work and needs to be redesigned:1- It requires you to be using a mod (had to install Power Auras while I was fine without so far) 2- It requires timing and opportunity: can use it only when 6 players in range of each other actually need a heal AND Proc happens 3- It costs you mana to take advantage of the bonus (Flash heal cost 700 mana,no flash heal= no bonus) 4- It eats a GCD to cast the Flash heal, whether you actually need to flash heal or not (very likely to overheal) Compare that bonus to 4P T10 for resto shamans and druids. It doesn't cost them mana, a GCD or a mod to use their bonus. That's just freaking ridiculous.

In game combat text can alert you for the proc. So as for the point about needing a mod, that's wrong.

As a Resto Shaman (with a priest alt), I always silence my Priest friend's complaints about it by saying that after two tiers of positively awful 4pc bonuses (Reduces the cast time of Chain Heal by 0.2 sec; increases the crit chance of Chain Heal by 5%) it's our turn to have the awesomely amazing set bonus. So stuff it. :D Kidding. :PI also play a Disc priest, and the Renewed Hope thing had me really confused, but that'nks for clearing it up.

I completely agree.The t10 bonus is even WORSE for renew-focused holy priests. Because Flash Heal isn't our filler, the 2 piece doesn't do ANYTHING for us, and the 4 piece also dependent on a spell that we don't really use... which only shortens a relatively short cooldown anyways.So the only time I cast FH is from a 4p proc. The sad thing is I completely regret that I invested all that time getting the frost badges for the tier gear. Since a bunch of it is still 251, I would have been better off just picking up the 264 stuff.For Disc priests though, since they're casting lots of FH, it isn't that bad. But for us Holy Priests, well we have been totally forgotten.

The set bonuses do seem more aimed at a disc priest concentrating on tank healing, still not good for shield spammers. However, There's no way in hell I'll be gimping my stats by picking up 4 pieces of spirit gear to get questionable set bonuses as a disc priest (crit/haste please), so bad for all healing priests really. I got the shadow tier instead so I could get better stats and kick ass in my offspec.

Yeah, I'm not impressed by T10 bonuses at all. I went off-set for this tier because those set bonuses simply aren't worth it.
