I really don't get the PoH being situational and pre-emptive healing with shield part. Normally PoH is a lot stronger if you are good at maintaining your DA stacks on 2-3 groups in a 25 man setting. Seeing as how this article seems to be targeted at a midrange skill level, that should be something those interested should be able to accomplish. This is coming from a priest that started raiding at the end of T11 and is now in a guild that goes deep into heroics early every tier. Even with ilvl scaling there are few encounters in DS that don't favor DA stacking over rolling shields on potential targets. Also recomending penance to be used on anything other than the tank to ensure easy Grace maintenance is actually counterproductive to high hps. You'll want to be healing the tank as little as possible when boosting your numbers and knowing you have penance to restack Grace gives a lot more leeway in how many PoH you can cast every 15 second(DA's duration on target's). Also DA stacking becomes even more powerful to the disc priest that is smart enough to not proc their cloak enchant or power torrent until the start of a fight. Pre-potting and PI'ing yourself, along with 2 raptures while you're under 3 int boost effects at the beginning of the fight allows you to stack a very large amount of DA and end up with 95% of your mana 20 secs into the fight. That is how you boost your #'s as disc, shield rolling on 3-5 targets is more mana intensive even when done properly with more risk involved.
