"Divine Hymn is the priest's ultimate AOE healing weapon. While channeling DH, they'll be hitting the raid with a massive amount of healing."I understand "massive" is subjective, however, DH by a Disc Priest is a net loss of output vs POH spam. Holy is only marginally better. Dh is really only all that useful if you want to buff the output of other healers, while sacrificing some of your own personal output. yes, it is a smart heal... however in situations where youd use it, everyone needs healing and POH is better for that.

Interesting information, thanks! I've always viewed DH as an incredibly powerful heal, but maybe it's the +healing effect that's actually causing those bars to move!

yeah, back in Naxx2.0/Ulduar it was "massive". then it was nerfed. TOC/ICC it was still strong, even post nerf. However after POH changes, and other healing changes in Cata it really was only good for buffing Tranq. :-(

To be clear... great article. Just wanted to clear up some stuff that me with my big mouth had to comment on. :-D

Always wished Divine Hymn was a bit more divine.. My raid leader seems to think it is comparable to Tranquility, so I use it when I am asked to, but i always felt PoH was more effective.btw.. REALLY miss your Blog Derevka.. especially the Power Auras section

Not that big of a deal, but Prayer of Mending isn't a smart heal, i.e. it jumps randomly. Our hymns and Circle of Healing are the only "smart" spells that Holy Priests get.

My understanding is that PoM bounces to the lowest HP target, is that no longer the case?

To my knowledge, it's always been random. At least, that's been the case since TBC. It simply jumps to a random raid member within 20 yards after the player with the current charge takes damage. It's still an amazing spell that should be glyphed and used on cooldown. It's just not smart.
