I feel like the 2 set for disc is worded very badly. Power Infusion already gives a 20% reduced mana cost for 15s (which you obviously already know, being a power-infusion-as-a-mana-cooldown enthusiast). I'm assuming this means that this buff will stack with that, but will the stack be multiplicative (40%) or additive (45% reduction)? Now that I just calculated that, it seems inconsequential actually. I guess that's pretty cool for shield spamming with a short gcd and almost half the mana cost, or an emergency button for flash heal spam.On the other hand, there's the lightwell 2set bonus. Seems very counter intuitive to me. Now, I love lightwell, and know how awesome it is for many many boss encounters, but using it as a cooldown just completely interferes with the utility of the spell. Many times, lightwell is placed before the encounter starts, (usually by the melee, a group of casters or where some people will be running/stacking) which helps when you need to place the lightwell somewhere else for a different phase of the fight (nef and rag fights especially). Using lightwell like this is going to completely nullify the 2set for the beginning of the fight. Or if you're trying to use the lightwell as a cooldown, you're probably in a situation where the shit is hitting the fan (flash heals) and you're probably not thinking about the best placement of lightwell and thus, wasting it.The 4sets don't really seem that powerful (unless you're a heavy shielder). Holy word is really only good if you stay in serenity-chakra, which is not very common for holy priests to do. I'm not saying that it's not used, just that most fights call for serenity chakra because priests are known for heavy aoe output.The resto shaman 4set is super OP. You are correct. Sure, everybody would like to be able to cast on the move with bloodlust for 20 seconds.Also of note: The shadow priest set bonuses are re-friggin-diculous. Eat your heart out, Fox. (It actually seems like a lot of dps set bonuses are absurdly powerful)

I would also like to mention that I finally started some holy PVP now that I'm almost full Ruthless and not afraid of dying anymore, and I have to say Holy Word: Chastise is incredibly underwhelming. Like more underwhelming than sanctuary, if that's possible, I don't know what you see in the little guy. Although, chakra stance dancing is pretty interesting in the heat of a battle.

Yep that's the same thing I don't like about 2-Piece is our Holy Priest usually pops a lightwell at the start of the fight and then occasionally when it runs low another one goes down. It's not a mana regeneration cooldown like my druid's innervate is.That's the only thing I think that is decent about the cooldown for my resto druid. I'm popping innervate when I want to get mana back...and now you're giving me a 25% healing discount as well as the mana. Well good googly goo that is synergistic.Holy Priests' Lightwell triggering the 25% mana discount...not so synergistic...and kinda unrelated.That's just my take on it though.
