I'd like a "heal on the move" CD for my priest... maybe a repurposed Inner Focus ? I have both a Druid and a Priest healer. While the priest has the extra oomph for emergencies that I have difficulty finding on my Druid, my Priest has an extremely hard time with movement:1- very few, very inefficient instant heals. PoM, Circle, Renew for Holy... PoM, Shield and Renew for Disc. Those are either on CD, bad+slow, small, all of the above...2- slowish heals. Heal and PoH are my staple heals, @ 2.41s cast time. Canceling one of those to move quickly, or trying to stand in the fire till they complete, are both a Bad Thing (tm).3- Making up for time lost moving involves Flash. Flash entails OOM.I understand each healer has peculiarities. I just find Priests' "Don't Move" one very cumbersome, a bit like Hunters pre-cata. A CD allowing us to heal on the move would be nice. Or a Chakra. Maybe carrying a penalty to healing done or mana regen ?

I don't know, priests are significantly more mobile than Shamans, in my experience, which is partially why they got the spell that lets them cast while moving. Maybe it's changed, I haven't healed on my Shaman much since the end of wrath, but that's just what I remember.

I actually like that movement hampers my priest a bit more than other classes now, as opposed to the freak-out-and-renew-and-PoM-and-CoH days in Wrath. It gives me a sense that I fill a role that other classes can't quite fill, and allows me to work for a better overall synergy with the rest of my healing team. Having a strength is something that every class needs, but that I don't always feel on my shaman.
