Blizzard! Please fix the other healers!!!!
Yeah, that’s right, I said it- I am a Discipline Priest and I am sick of seeing nothing but people looking for Disco Priests, Holy Paladins, and Resto Shamans.
I’m not being snarky here. I’m really not. I KNOW why people are looking for these classes. Disco Priests- even without Atonement- are OP as hell. Absorbs in general are just super powerful, and a spec that… well, specializes… in absorbs is always going to rock the meters, no matter what.
Holy Pallies are the nice balance between good absorbs and good heals. They can do it all. They are fantastic at it.
And the Resto Shaman’s healing CD’s are just so strong. Its like there is nothing they cannot heal through sometimes (especially when paired with Disco Priests and Holy Pallies!)
But… what about the Resto Druids and MW Monks, who were SO GOOD in MoP? They can’t even hold a candle to the others. And don’t even get me started on the Holy Priests- I remember when Holy was THE healer. If you had a good Holy Priest and a good Resto Druid, you could survive anything.
Absorbs are like a monster you’ve let out of its cage… and its so fierce and so powerful that you can’t get it back under control. You have to kill it completely or its going to run rampant- which it is. When did the focus of healing shift from “putting heals on the target” to “absorbing as much damage as possible”?
And this is from someone who regularly tops healing charts in Heroic BRF with barely a second thought. I know how to play my class efficiently. I know how to look into the future (or at that sidebar DBM gives me) and predict when things are going to hit so I can prebubble. Proactive damage mitigation has made reactionary healing obsolete.
And I don’t like it.
I didn’t choose to play a Disco Priest because they’re strong. I love the playstyle, but… Blizzard?
This needs fixed.
