To Disc or Not To Disc

I may feel like a traitor for writing this post... but I'll live life on the wild side!

"To Disc or Not To Disc..."

It's been on my mind a lot recently! I've been Disc for all my raiding experience. I was even specc'd double disc (PvE/PvP), though with patch 4.0 I couldn't help but feel that Disc was a little lack luster. I've tried to be optimistic about our new talents, doing damage in order to heal. But it's leaving a sour taste in my mouth.

Don't get me wrong, I am SOO glad that Blizz is taking steps to stop bubble-botting. That was incredibly boring to me, and even when I tried I never could quite just spam bubbles. Sure my "numbers" were higher when I just ignored all situational healing and spammed Power Word: Shield, BUT - I'm pretty sure I could train my Chihuahua, Wookiee, to do that... (Granted she is a VERY smart dog, but - you get the point.)

So, I took a small hiatus from disc-ing and put together a very patchwork gear set for shadow. What was this feeling? I don't have to watch everyone in the raid? I felt so selfish, but powerful! After shadow-ing it up for 2 weeks or so, I've been yearning for those glorious double bubbles and sparkling penance.

I love healing. Tanking terrifies me. DPS is dull. Healing is Heaven :]

But back to my original concern, Disc seems a bit lack-luster compared to our cheesed-up Chakra sister spec. I wonder if things will change at 85... What do you all think?


  1. I myself am not a Priest, however one of my guildies is and he complained a lot about the current state of Disc... Good to see a little discussion starting about it!

  2. Thanks! I'm glad I'm not the only one whom feels this way :D
