I just think its hilarious that people are being asked to spec out of Holy into Disc. Hilarious because I remember being vote kicked from PuGs in early Cata before one single mob had been pulled because I was Disc. "Sorry, we need a healer."

I find that rather odd because when playing my priest I've always found it to be much easier to heal 5-mans as disc rather than holy. I prefer holy spec for raids although there are certainly some instances that holy did just as well or better (SFK for one)

Goodness, had those people not played since Classic/BC?

Hah, that happened to me once too.That occasion aside though, healing as Disc in Cata's extreme infancy was an exhilarating and bracing experience. I think successfully playing any spec that's just on the near side of viable will really make you a superb player of that spec once it gets buffed back into line.

I have shared similar experiences as disc. I've been disc for as long as I've been a priest, then when we get to cata all of the sudden people say it's a terrible spec and I must be fail for not going holy when I can heal just fine. It especially felt bad to get kicked form a group after arguing with someone that clearly doesn't know a thing about priests in the first place. Back in the first couple months I had an argument that started as a "why aren't you holy, you just bad?" thing and ended with him telling me I'm fail because I'm using greater heal...

@LynMars "Goodness, had those people not played since Classic/BC?"Well, since you could heal dungeons in classic (raids too!) as shadow, classic players would be happy to just have a healer, no matter their spec ;). I don't know what BC was like.
