Holy still sucks? Not enough talents to justify a PvP-oriented playstyle?!This makes me wonder what you're doing wrong -- holy is a beast now. Not only do you have a constant HoT from the mastery but Revelations and Chakra provide flexibility for defensive or offensive situations. Need a boost to damage in smite? Got it. Need an awesome AoE heal to slap in the middle of a Barrier (oh yeah...)? Got it. Among other things as well. Downplaying the usefulness of Body and Soul leads me to believe melee kiting is out of the question with your playstyle. Pick up Imp PW:S and you're good to go. Sure it takes a lot of getting used to but being able to hold your own as well as or better than a Discipline priest hardly makes it "still suck."

you make great points. i'm not downplaying the usefulness of Body and Soul, i think it's the best PvP talent in the tree. i just don't think there are enough PvP-specific talents in holy compared to the other specs. but you're probably right that in context, and as hades quotes below, holy can get away with a lot in the battlegrounds.
