This is a great change for Shadow Priests, no doubt.This really blows for Holy and Disc Priests. This is a nerf for them, and they don't get any of the cool buffs. So be happy, Shadow Priests - you get a buff while the people who keep you alive are being nerfed yet again.Meh. My good humor about the expac went bye bye when I read all of the healer mana nerfs today. Ugh.

I gotta say, my good mood doesn't rest on whether a class (even my main one) is nerfed/buffed.

Priest healing has become unchallenging and dull. They were right to nerf our mana regeneration oh so long ago, and they are right to nerf it again.Come on Blizzard, challenge me again!

Well, you'll probably vote this one down, too - because you don't like what I'm saying, not that anything that I'm saying is wrong.Yes, Priest healing is boring right now - what isn't going to be boring when you have a 30% raid-wide buff? ICC is a joke, and RS isn't much better. Priest healers are currently shoved into tiny little roles as one trick ponies due to the current raid mechanics.This continually seems to happen with players who are not raiding hard mode content "on level." I don't count people who started into hard modes with a 20-25% buff and are now cruising at a 30% buff - it would be ridiculous to judge ANY content based on that scenario. Judging a class or spec based off of the one-trick ponies that they currently are (Disc, tank heal? Ridiculous! Bubble bot, please. Holy do anything but Renew spam/CoH? Please.) is foolish at best.If Priest healing is boring right now, it's because there's no challenging content, and Priests are weak in several areas (and ridiculously strong in one area in the case of Disc). Put out the challenging content, and everything changes. There is currently almost no reason to ever bring a Holy Priest unless you're short on Druids or Shamans, and even then, a Shaman is probably better.Nerfing mana regen on a spec that is notorious for having poor mana efficiency as is is stupid. As a poster on the healing forums put it, "All I know is, if resource management was fun: DPS would be a lot more interested in that little bar under their health bar, but they aren't. And they aren't being forced into being interested about it, either. Because, guess what? It ISN'T fun." QFT.
