The article also makes a rather huge assumption.The majority of theorycraft shows that Spiritual Attunement at 1/2 is enough for raids and then some. In fact with that spec I have only had mana issues in a raid with fights where the adds come in waves which are spread out (looking at you valithria) or where tank swaps might take a while (festergut when I am not tanking and just going to town in the 3rd inhale phase) more than 1 pt is overkill in a raid, and the glyph is just plain not needed there.In heroics, this spec has the drawback of expecting a lot more incoming damage than someone usually takes in normal situations. In this situation the preferred methods are:A) Pull more mobsB) Take off your pants.I'm now at the point of just tanking 2-3 packs at once since that not only lets me get mana but it doubles my DPS and so the run is faster.Finally:Unlike bears and warriors, tankadins don't get mana from a shield going away, so they can actually get their blue rage bar hosed if the Disc priest is really good. My wife had a habit of doing this to me until I made her look at my mana bar when she did it compared to not in the exact same instance 2 nights in a row. Easing off the bubble unless they are hitting 30% in a heroic is just a nice thing. Most times you will be able to just renew them anyway. In a raid, go to town.
