The change to priest atonement capping at 30% of the priest's health, what is that all about do you think? My atonement hits for about 10k, sometimes 16k, but never anywhere near 30k (30% of my hp). Do you think this is specific to some certain fight? intended for low lvl balance? I hope I'm not missing something, like it calcs on base HP, which i guess it probably would and I don't remember what that is.....but base mana is like 26k or something, and if health is anywhere near that, then 30% of 40k hp for example is 12,000. I hope that isn't the case, since disc is already quite hamstringed in dungeons compared to other healing classes and holy priests

I'm also worried that they deemed it necessary to nerf Atonement. There are 5 talent points and a whole talent build built around Smite Healing. It's the best thing that ever happened to combat healer boredom. Is there some raid fight that gives you a buff that increases your damage by a huge amount? I guess that would make healing the tank trivial if there was.

I'm guessing it's for fights like when you're bit in the San'lyan queen fight in ICC or the end of the final boss in Throne of Tides, where you can get a massive buff to damage done. 30% of a cloth wearer's health in level 85 gear is about 30k and will only go up as gear improves; that's nothing to sneeze at.

Yeah...but healing goes up for that phase too, throne of tides that is. Besides...when it hits that point, p3 on last boss, I'm just spaming Prayer of Healing as mana becomes a non-issue there.
