Grievous is bad enough to heal this week as disc, but kick in Spiteful, and how it keeps you from drinking?! Yeah, and melee take a lot of damage to boot.
Not sure what other disc priest mains are doing this week, but if you don’t have Flash Concentration for your holy spec, what are you doing? Why should you have to sit out the week?
In my case, on a couple alt priests, the mana issue is really problematic with melee that get hit a lot. Maybe all you can do is pack a lot of mana pots and drink every chance you get. Not that drinking is always a great idea. If you stop to drink too long? Most tanks start their pull when you are nowhere near full mana and start getting stacks. Most dps don’t even seem aware they even have stacks. You stop to drink and they stand there with their health ticking down. They can eat if they have less than three stacks and it will get them to full, but do people do that? Nope. In my first three runs of the week none have done that. I let a couple die because they ran off with stacks and I was not chasing them–but having said in chat with a macro I was drinking. Sigh.
Also, you are probably gonna have rage quitters this week doing their thing more than usual. Tanks seem to expect high output heals with no mana breaks. Atonement just doesn’t do it.
Bad bosses this week: Third boss at SD for sure. Last boss at PF for sure. First and last bosses at DOS, all depending. Third boss at NW if mistakes are made. Last boss at HOA all depending. Second and last bosses at SOA.
Rough trash? HOA shards. NW trash on the platform before second boss–so much of it without breaks. DOA before third boss–get ready for a ton of Spiteful mobs.
