The mage spells like fireball and frost bolt are becoming spec specific, however, it's rare to find a fire mage casting frost bolt and vice versa (much like affliction locks use shadowbolt and destro ones use incinerate).On my disc priest I use binding heal, divine hymn, heal, prayer of healing, renew - all spells that will be gone to the spec in MoP. Holy priests aren't losing PW:Shield that I can see, which seems strange to me. Why are they keeping PW:Shield when disc is the mitigation spec.A frost mage doesn't need fire spells. A healing priest is a different thing. From what I can see, a disc priest's ability to heal back damage is being reduced, and given the long cast time on spirit shell, it isn't going to be feasible to pre shield everyone. Some bosses have abilties that take away X% health irrespective of mitigation - you have to be able to heal back that damage and disc already has a lower capacity to do so. Unless Holy Nova is an incredibly mana efficient AoE , disc priests are going to be at a disadvantage. Holy priests still retain all their abilities to be a single target healer as well as an aoe damage healer.
