I have four healers (pally, druid, disc, holy) and I find the differences fun. I must admit I already use Holy Nova as a subsitute for Circle of Healing when I'm on my Disc. It does less heals, shorter range, not really a smart heal, but it does proc Divine Aegis, costs less mana and generates no threat. I'd be happy with it being upgraded slightly to be on a par with Circle, but I am glad Prayer of Healing is sticking around, as I always fall back to it when a few raid members need heals and it also procs Divine Aegis from memory.In fact, I find the two priests and the druid to be very similar, enough so I can map similar spells to the same Ctrl/Alt/Shift mouse clicks (I use Clique and raid frames), but the pally is very different with directional healing and the Holy Power mechanic and lack of HOTs. Do we need more separation between the priests? I'm not really sure as currently my playstyle with disc and holy is different with disc concentrating more on the tank and holy on the raid. Although both can perform either function, I still prefer disc when I am responsible for tanks and holy for raid.Anyway glad to know POH will be left alone ;-)

Hrm - how about a targeted holy nova?

Isn't targeted Holy Nova called Circle of Healing?

I was looking forward to adding Holy Nova to my atonement arsenal. I hope they make it a bit more powerful, so that it as least an option in certain situations.I will really miss Binding Heal, mostly because it is our only "low threat" heal. I don't know if many Priests think to use because of that, even when the Priest is at full health. I know I do.

I posted a while back on the forums on an idea for a change to holy nova. Have it function like mind sear. As in pulse out in a radius around a target. Have it benefit and add to evang stacks. Also to boost atonement healing a bit have a glyph that spreada the holy fire dot out in a 10 yard radius and have holy nova do extra damage to those targets. Have it heal based off damage done like atonement heals.
