Disc wasn't even really considered that good of a pve class pre tbc even in tbc. it was all about holy heals. Or at least they were the default go to as a healing priest. Not only did I find it super fun to spec disc my first time and enter a raid and be in charge of shields, telling holy specc'd priests before the raid started to avoid using their PWS on anybody but themselves, but it looks freaking awesome to have an entire raid full of bubbled toons. It's just another way to play the class and not everybody should be "punished" (im afraid to use that word) and such a great spell that's been so consistent throughout WoW's existence shouldn't be punished or altered just because of how we decided to nullify a bit of raid damage in wrath. If you want to point fingers and call people nubs for shield spamming that's your deal, but it comes off as elitist. If you have a more optimal way of playing a disc priest than by all means knock yourself out but blizzard shouldnt pigeon hole any classes imo. I was a disc priest in the past, now im shadow-ms holy-os and the reason im not disc priest-os is because one of my favorite past times as disc was rolling bubble and spamming holy nova for the aegis in heroics and running the entire heroic with 0 damage healed. To me that was so cool and badass that I had the mana to support that type of play, it made me feel ultimate. It's sad that Blizzard would want to take this possibility away. But maybe I'm wrong, maybe it is still possible and I just haven't been trying. but to me it sounds like the goold ol' days (a wednesday to be sure) are long gone. T___T
