Re: [Classes] Body And Soul: The Priest Thread (4.2.X - 4.X.X) PW:S spam in a 10 man isn;t the way to go. If your missing some spirit I'm sure you will feel the effects, but honstly spirit really isnt that amazing for disc. I can't give you my spirit numbe ron my priest, but I can tell you I probably have 1 or 2 more then half pcs of gear with spirit on them the rest is missing it. You need to ue any kind of rapture tracking. Make sure a PW:s is popping every 12 secs.
Another thing is for low spirit numbers, atonement will be even better for you. Each stack of evanglism decreases the mana cost of smtei,penance, heal and something else i think, so if you HF+Smite alot with a PW:S and PoH miced in youll be riding fine on mana.
Personally If I know I'm going to run into mana issues(yes it happens 2 healing ocasionally) I keep all of my PI's for myself. Especially fights like Zonozz where you will be PoH spamming for black phases.
If you want any more infos PM me or I can add you to realid or something...
Also on a side note this past wekend I played holy for half of our alt run for the first time since my priest was my main 2 weeks into Cata. It was pretty fun, the AOE burst healing seems ridiculous to what it was at the start of cata. I'll probably jsut rock the double healing specs for a while.. NEver going to actually use that stupid orange staff anyway lols
I always save PI for myself. A non-atonement build uses Heal as its filler... so I don't see a huge argument for atonement being more mana efficient. Either way, I find disc easier to manage mana than holy... but that is probably more of a playstyle thing.
