I'm waiting to see how disc pans out. I don't like that we are losing PoH. I know they say they want holy nova to be disc's aoe heal, but the positional requirement, if it doesn't change, sucks. Unlike a paladin who wears plate, my priest is in squishy cloth. I don't want to have to run into melee to be able to heal the melee players. I'm hoping more for disc is coming. I know they've also said atonement will be a glyph, and I sure hope disc gets to keep atonement, because I do enjoy it.

I'm also concerned about the positional requirements of Holy Nova. PoH is limited to group, but that requires no more than mousing over a player in a different group in my raid frame. Having to run to another group could be pretty taxing. As a compromise, Holy Nova could effect all members of the party or raid, but it's effect is reduced the farther away the player is from the caster. Of course, this could become a bit too powerful in stacking phases.

I'm not quite sure how the "I'm in cloth" argument holds up when the vast majority of AoE damage isn't affected by armor anyway, and if you've got aggro the incoming damage is so high a healing paladin is getting shredded, too, plate or no plate.My issue with Holy Nova is that it looks to be getting some of the worst bits of 4.0's Holy Radiance. Worse, at the moment it's an AoE heal with a healing cap of 1 (which is to say that you can add more targets, but adding more targets doesn't increase the total amount of healing done.) Without a lot more work, it quite simply can't work as an actual AoE heal.And if they simply bump up the total heal amount? Okay, now the disc priest is stuck standing next to the tank bombing Holy Nova. Oh, and if he's by himself he's damn near unkillable in PvP, since it's an instant cast spell that 'splits its heal evenly' and heals enough to be a useful AoE heal in 5-man content, if not in raids. Oh, and it's supposed to inherit PoH's auto-Aegis effect, too.No, either Holy Nova will be replaced as Disc's AoE heal and go back to the silly little obscure thing that it currently is, or it will be completely reworked, which differs from the first option only in that the current Holy Nova won't be cluttering our bars.
