Well, for example, PI is just plain so good that all 3 specs would prefer to have it. The limiting factor right now is that only disc can get it.VoU just seems like a really bad version of beacon. The power of beacon is that you can put it on a tank and even when you heal someone else, you're still healing the tank. If there are 2 tanks, you can heal both at the same time. VoU is a weak beacon that you can only cast on yourself, hurts you, has a long cooldown and is quickly broken if you put it on a tank, which means it's probably better for PvP than raiding. Swapping your health with someone with void shift is generally going to be a bad idea too, if there's any chance that you can take any incoming damage afterwards. You usually don't want to sacrifice a healer to save a DPS, and fights where you aren't going to take any raid damage at all, such as Baleroc, are incredibly few and far between. On the other hand, VD is a constant, free smart heal that is useful whenever more than one person is taking any damage, and is probably even more significant when you're balled up raid healing, depending on how they tweak it before release. Even as shadow, VD is probably better for your raid than VoU or VS.Path of the Devout will be useless as long as levitate is broken by any amount of damage, and the moment boost from body and soul can be very useful, particularly when you're casting a lot of shields as a disc priest anyway.While they aren't absolute numbers that can be crunched by theorycrafting, there are some which are just clearly superior to others and there always will be, because you can't make all 3 talents in a group equally good for all 3 specs at the same time.I don't want to go into too much detail on every choice I gave, because we just don't have the final numbers yet and things will almost certainly change before release.
