I think you pretty much nailed it. I've played both Holy and Discipline Priest styles in Cataclysm, and it seemed that nearly every fight was nothing but AoE. Before the Holy boosts, Holy was at a serious disadvantage simply because its AoE cooldowns were weaker. Disc was nothing but Shield spam even with all the changes, because other classes were more effective at AoE healing, while Shields had the proactive element. As much as you might try to justify other playstyles, there simply wasn't enough power to match the encounters.Sadly enough, I found myself missing Wrath - not for its free spam aspect, but because choices mattered. Cataclysm is like bailing water out of a boat, while Wrath was like racquetball.
