While I don't agree with the idea of making the meters the primary focus, and Dawn has made it clear she doesn't think that way either, anticipation is a crucial part of disc healing and agressive target prioritisation is somewhat part of that.I've found I understand the damage patterns of a fight much better than other healers because I need to anticipate it to use shield, barrier and pain suppression. The other healers tend to be more reactive, at least the ones in my guild. I've always attributed it to the fact I'm trying to stop the damage, rather than deal with it after it occurs. I'll use shields after damage to buy time obviously, and I tend to shield people who aren't at full health if I know there's an incoming aoe so they have a better chance of surviving etc. I prefer the disc approach compared to my other healers, but it does seem to lead to more awareness of how the damage plays out through a fight rather than just healing back.
