Can we debate PW: Sheild vs. PoH + extended Aegis? PW: Sheild is instant, absorbs more damage than Aegis, is single target and will last 15 seconds. PoH has a cast time, heals for a bit, procs Aegis, which absorbs 10% for a duration of 15 seconds on 5 players.And they cost almost the same base mana (25% vs 26%). It feels weird to me. Can some genius theory crafter out there tell me which does the most overall heal+absorb? Not to be much too much of a whiner(to late), but it feels to me like Blizz is changing the entire play style of Disc priests to be much more like Holy priests pre-circle of healing.In the past it was about preventative measures. PW:S, PoM, Penance, Renew, and Flash Heal. Now it seems to be about Heal, PoM, PoH, PW:S, and maybe a Penance here or there.Casting Flash Heal, Greater Heal or PW:S too often will make you OOM. While I don't miss shield spam, it was our 'AoE heal' surrogate. Prayer of Healing is a weak substitute. I feel like we've lost a great deal of mobility as I stand around spamming heal and PoH. And that makes me a sad panda.
