It really boils down to this:
It should be possible for a DPS build to get ALL the DPS talents out there.
It's OK for a PVP build to choose between utility and DPS and even between different utility talents.

It's just I think it might come out that we deal damage about as much as a tank, but because of Archangel, Evangelism, Atonement, +hit, free smites, extra smite dmg and whatnot, we might actually be healing 100% of another healer (or maybe 85% if we're really aggressively smiting a lot). That would be (my) ideal world, although it could turn out to be not the ideal world of every healer.
The intent is not to be dealing 1/2 and healing 1/2 or healing 2/3 and dealing dmg 1/3. This would be really strange.
Ideally, the priests adjusts on the fly for every encounter (and even DURING an encouter) how much Archangelreg or healing is needed and smites just the right amount. Ideally, the priest should end every boss encounter as close to 0% mana as possible.
In any case, the design strongly favors "Never stop casting. Ever." because if everyone's pretty much topped off, you just smite. Evangelism and Improved Holy Nova just add to that style, as it could make Holy Nova a very viable (and fast and cheap!) AoE heal.
All in all... I have to admit my priest is level 1 at the moment and I, as you, am a rogue thinking of rerolling a priest in Cata.
Jun 11th 2010 5:18AM What strikes me is that you're obviously so into pure healing that you refer to all the Smite talents as they're some awkward flavor low-level questing single player stuff.
You don't think that there MIGHT be some NEW raid synergy with instant, free smites, Evangelism, Atonement, Archangel for manareg and all the Smite enhancing talents? No?

Everyone that voted "no" in the survey above is just plain silly or not telling the truth.
It'd be still two separate IDs. So you compare 2x loot per week to 1x loot per week.
EVERYONE able to would STILL run 25man.
