I find the PW:S nerf to be pretty disheartening. Pre-patch, it wasn't even worth using other than for the rapture proc. Its finally in a place where its functional again, and now this. Good disc healing still required a nice mix of spell usage, and the cost of PW:S was high enough that spamming it still wasn't feasible. Now I wonder if it will even be effective to use for the mana return./sigh

I kept with the "spell-weaving" approach since 4.0.6, but apparently the best way to top meters as a Disc priest these days is spamming PW:Shield, which I assume is why it's being nerfed. The problem I see is much the same as yours though, with the loss of mana-regen that Disc priests had in their favour against the sheer throughput that Holy can bring to a fight.

Whoever these priests are that keep trying to heal only with shield and screwing things up for the rest of us need to have meters forcibly uninstalled from their computers. And learn to use the many fun spells we have in our toolbox to keep the party healthy. -_-I've been playing Disc since Classic, so it's still far, far better than where it was before, but this yo-yo'ing between being OK and nerfed to frustration is getting old.

Nerfing PW:S...AGAIN, is to nerf a disc priest's signature spell. The description states "Uses magic to shield allies from taking damage as well as heal their wounds." Should they be able to spam it, no. But to reduce it's effectiveness to the point that it may become avoided due to mana cost is to turn disc priests into holy priests with a different name.
