I've actually use an Atonement/Archangel spec for 10N progression healing. One example being on Maloriak, where the guild was having trouble defeating him. I pushed to close to 4k dps as Discipline (while somehow still topping the healing meters), and we downed the boss a few seconds after the Berserk timer. I did 1.6mil damage (little under 5% of the overall damage), but my being able to heal by doing damage is what allowed us to down the boss when our DPS weren't yet up to par for the encounter.Also, this tier of raiding has been very nice to the Atonement spec. Not including the instance bosses (guild hasn't tried them yet, so don't know the encounters and necessary healing enough to judge), at least half the encounters have some sort of "increased damage" gimmick that an Atonement spec can play off of.

Conversely, while I'm the guild's strongest healer when I'm in my Atonement Discipline spec, I'm about tied with the rest of the healers when I switch to Holy. However, I find myself using that spec on Atramedes for utility - especially the PW:S run speed buff - as well as our semi-progression style attempts at Chimaeron where "the bubbles, they do nothing"
