Shame that both Disc and Holy are not-at-all viable at 85 ATM.

Well can we have a little proof or is this just your own opinion?

Go look at any forums that discuss healers in pvp and the general consensu will be that Holy pallies are OP and Priests are the worst healers at 85 atm on beta. Here's a couple reasons why:-Disc mobility still sucks and Inner Will is not going to help at all.-Disc mana regen is terrible (its impossible to stack evangilism to more than 2 or 3)-Disc does not have dispel protection so our 40k+ shield can dispelled instantly-Penance does not heal for enough-Everyone has an interrupt so good luck casting anything but Flash Heal and Flash Heal drains our mana extremely fast-The one thing that used to make up for this was our ability to do decent damage for a healer, but now every healer can do just as good, if not better thatn priest damage (Holy pally's with Holy Shock and exorcismI could go on but i think you get the idea.I did have one thing to mention about Holy. I like Chakra but I don't think its fair that we have to juggle "stances" to do decent healing and, as you put it Zach "if you're not in Chakra, you're doing something wrong". To go along with that, If were in Chakra then Holy Word: Chastise gets changed to something else, but HW:Chastise is a great pvp ability without being changed (a 3 sec stun and small amount of damage). So we get punished pvp wise for being in Chakra but if we're not in Chakra we still get punished.

@flasper - I thought HW:Chastise stays HW:Chastise if the first spell you cast in a Chakra state is Smite?Either way, it can still be used if you have a separate, /cancelaura macro with it that you can use if you need it.And with Chakra on a 30 sec CD, odds are that you'll be able to jump back into full-power healing right away.

The sky IS falling, but not on us. They just boosted priest base heals 20% for the next patch. Flash, greater, binding, and regular ol' bread and butter Heal base values. Source: Mmo-champ on the 17th. That hits us when 4.0.3a drops. Bliz is stingy with buffs usually this close to the release date, so you have to assume they've seen that something ain't pretty with 85 priest heals. 20% buff to your workhorse heals? Somebody woke up, and they ain't happy.
