pom is always on cd. we are talking about the failings of the paladin tank that cant control mana, not the failings of the disc priest healing him. pom should always be on cd, no matter what kind of healing priest. as for renew, yea i am DISC, not holy. I do not use renew unless i cannot bubble. Again, not the point of the article, nor the point of my statement. The point of my statement was just because someone asks you to do something, even if they are the tank, if you KNOW their information is incorrect (i.e. stop bubbling me, its killing my mana) it is not your duty or responsibility to just go ahead and do it, just because you were asked. that is perpetuating ignorance, and that is the issue I had with dawns statement. I have played disc long before they were LK favorites. I remember having to defend my spec just to get into ulduar when it was progression. I am not a fan of perpetuating disc myths.I also feel as if you are misunderstanding. Would I stop bubbling? No. Would I bubble more? No. But I will use my spell where i always was going to use it. would it kill him to judge wisdom and keep plea up? as you said, runs both ways.

Even with Blessing of Sanctuary, Divine Plea, and Judging Wisdom (which I ALWAYS do), my paladin tank can STILL run low or even out of mana if she's not getting constant heals. Generally speaking, it's when I encounter mobs that I still need to hold threat on but aren't doing a lot of damage to me - so the bubble doesn't pop, and I don't get any heals.

@velaryaThe problem isn't the paladin. You're just being stubborn for no good reason.In all honesty, the only place this should be an issue is H VH, where 1) the timing between waves doesn't allow the paladin to keep DP rolling easily, and 2) where the single mob waves give virtually no regen to the paladin through BoSanc. In any other heroic, if the paladin overgears the content to the point where being shielded results in an empty mana bar, the solution is as simple as pulling more.I've had the misfortune of drawing H VH with a few stubborn Disc priests lately (who continued to shield me even after I asked them to stop). In one case, I right-clicked my PW:S buff (yes, every time it was cast) so that there'd be some damage for the priest to heal up. In another case, I literally stripped every piece of armor off except for my shield to get enough mana back through the PW:S.I'm just glad I'm an alchemist; I typically use my endless mana potion ~3 times per heroic to keep my mana at comfortable levels. (Just looked it up on Armory--I've used my endless mana potion 1659 times.)
