I read in someone's comments when you (Wow.com) first released these new talents preview, "i think anybody with a "smite spec" in a serious pve environment will get laughed into oblivion." I completely disagree, It almost makes for 2 completely acceptable dps trees in the Priest class. As well as maintaining the same raid heals functionality of Vampiric Embrace without the glittering bodies. Moreso than in raids, I'm super excited to test this out in 5 man dungeons: Imagin, not casting a single "heal" spell throughout the instance, healing only with offensive spells and shields.

yeah, you're right. i would love to heal without casting healing spells. i definitely rolled a healing class so that i could do weak damage (compared to an actual dps) instead of casting healing spells. and thank god i have to smite 5x to get the full benefit. any less and it would have been really annoying.

Wow subtle sarcasm -_-... what I meant was mostly that we would be serving 2 rolls: *comparable* dps and at the same time healing. Not just a healer with offensive spells. With my current spec and gear I can do 3k+ on most fights in heroics, queued and proactively healing. What these new talents give me is that little edge to make that 4-5k dps (scaling up to whatever will be the norm dps in cata) on each fight, leveling the playing field. And in regards to spamming smite, is it really that different from spamming arcane blast, lightning bolt, wrath, shadow bolt, etc etc etc.?
