"That said, I think the change is a positive one since it finally and effectively addresses shield spam. For raiders, I think this is the real fix we were hoping for"..No? No, no, no, no? Who the hell was honestly complaining about this? Bubbling has been the hallmark of the class since DAY ONE and they've been nothing but ruining it constantly since Cataclysm has released. -_-Of course Disc priests spam shields! That is their entire mechanic! Never mind the rest of our heals are AWFUL at the moment. Why the hell don't we just play Holy if Blizzard, -seven years later-, suddenly decides "Lol you're not supposed to use PW:S." What the hell?!

exactly. Our tool kit was PW:S and other spells to support that. Now Blizz has said 'no, we want you to use other heals'. But give us NOTHING to take up the slack. Penance, our formerly top tier heal, cost more and heals for a bit less than our (smallest)Heal spell.So, we can't shield everything. Great. What are we supposed to do then? I don't know about other people - my gear is still bottom end heroic gear - but even flash heal and greater heal barely 'move the needle' on moderately geared tanks. I have NO spell which can heal a tank for 30% of their health. And yet almost every boss encounter has attacks that drop a tank 30% or more in one go.And the amount of party wide damage in encounters has gone up significantly. And our only 'AoE' heal heals for a laughable amount. I can manage. I have changed my play style. But the play style reminds me of holy healing back in BC. Which is why I rolled a Resto Shammy -- I hated that play style.
