Comparing average hps is always difficult. But I think you should include disc priests. WOL counts absorbs as healing, so you don't have barrier or pain suppression, but everything else is there. And I think it's interesting that discipline priests do better in 10man normal and heroic, while holy priests seem to be stronger in 25man raids."You can't compare disc cause absorbs" is just an excuse for lazy discipline priests nowadays. ;)

So if you were doing 12k hps and 4k absorbs per sec, would that be considered 16k overall?I would hope it would be that simple to determine, but my gut tells me it isn't.

For World of Logs, it is almost that simple. Just look at the "healing by spell" tab for a discipline priest - you'll see healing+absorb=hps. It even seems to detect "overshielding", so if the priest is spamming shields that don't get used, it will not count for effective healing.Of course you have to remember that shields are a different beast, and a disc priest might be useful for absorbs/raid cooldown even if he doesn't put out massive hps in a specific fight. But I've seen too many priests with meager healing done in random raids who say "but but disc", and I have no problem keeping up with other healers on my priest (raiding 10man with a pally and in some fights an additional holy priest), so I think you can, and maybe should, compare them.(Kind of unrelated: the easier the fight is, the easier it is as disc to top the meters. We don't get bragging rights. :( )
