First thoughts

Mana concerns. As we can see from the table, Disc will have rapture, Hymn of Hope (albeit as dubious as ever) and shadowfiend as methods of getting mana back. Holy has Holy Concentration and Shadowfiend. Will the two different methods come close to balancing out?

Complete lack of Shadow dps spells. Both Mind Spike and Mind Blast seem have to vanished completely. I can’t even find them in the Shadow specific section. Not at all happy at this for PvP, I really don’t like having to use my healing school for dps. Fingers crossed that this is an oversight.

Also surprised that Disc loses so many of our current heals: Binding, Heal, Divine Hymn and Renew. Not surprised that Holy keeps Lightwell and Spirit of Redemption though. Time to bring back the cancel aura macro for the times when I’d rather be really dead than slightly dead and spat on.

There are some implications for the new talents too. For example on row three of the talents, one of the options is Archangel which requires either Shadowform or Evangelism meaning, on that row, Holy only has two options. Although based on the description Divine Star > all on that row.

However since both Holy Nova and Prayer of Healing are conspicuous by their absence, hopefully there will be lots more changes between now and Mists going live. I could imagine Prayer of Healing being Holy only and Holy Nova being Disc based on what the developers have been saying.

All in all, roll on the beta please.
