Mar 6th 2012 5:35AM 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.

While yes its easy to say not to complain when everything is going smooth, you have to remember that Lipstick pointed out the gear issue. When my alts that don't even meet the equipped ilvl requirement are doing 25% of the healing done for a fight and the healer at the bottom used 0 cds in a fight even when we have people about to die might not cause the the wipe, but the reason is that a few of us are carrying the healing and if it weren't for us the wipe would have occurred. So when I lose a piece of gear to a player that is doing way less than they should on EVERY boss fight it makes me angry b/c I am putting in the effort I should but that other healer is doing less hps than i did a year ago when i hit 85 in greens.
