A bit off topic, but I was talking with some friends a couple months ago and think that Monk would be a great addition to the Disc priest tree. Quite like Feral Cats and Bears are in the same tree, but use vastly different talent choices to get the job done. So a Disc priest is either a bubble throwing healer or a Monk. They would derive all of their damage, dodge and resistance from their Intellect and Spirit (the spirit trick could work for +hit). None of the attacks are physical, though they must be within melee range to use most of the Monk abilities. They would be "locked out" of Shadow talents by the defining Monk talent reducing Shadow damage by 50% or something. They could have a three minute CD AoE knockdown using the staff, etc... The shield would be on a much shorter cooldown and would auto cast on the monk on CD unless he chose to place it on another individual. He also would only be able to buff one individual at a time, himself or another. Basically, the shield would be a resource that the Monk uses to buff his abilities. As the shield ticks he would receive a buff which may cause him to cast an empowered heal, empowered Holy Fire or something like that. I also thought something cool like a primary 10 second CD "Many Fists" attack which would benefit even more greatly from the absorbed shield damage. May not work, but it definitely sounded fun to me.

As a feral druid, trust me, you don't want what you're asking for. Don't wanna give up a third or more of your tree for a completely different playstyle.
