Well I’ve took a long break from my priest to get gold for the dual spec thingy and I <3 disc spec so I want to spec both into it one for pvp/solo other healing. Anyways I’m real unsure about my solo/pvp spec I’m a pvp newb, I can solo good as a priest and heal good but nothing amazing either. \Anyways any little tips on pvp would help a whole lot:)
Here’s the spec I worked out for pvp, it prolly has a lot of flaws.http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#bVcbuhGiRcsofotbEx00b:uATVzM

Well, lets see where can I help. I will state overall survival talents, directed mostly for arenas. Maybe its not what you asked, but it is the build that allows least space for mistakes and therefore, the most "serious". (Literally. I BG'ed endless times in a PvE spec and did just fine)
Re-check tier 1. Why Twin Disciplines? Unbreakable Will takes off an incredible amount of the duration of a stun (30% to be more precise). it is -EXTREMELY- useful! As talent allocation is at the moment, you cannot really afford 5/5 Twin Disciplines.
Silent Resolve is pretty much needed, period. A lot of dispels going arround Arenas.
You pick Improved Flash Heal. I see your point, but my personal opinion is that it just... doesn't cut it. A lot of interrupts are going arround and relying on Flash Heal is dangerous. I mostly heal through instant cast spells and Penance. It is the top choice to self heal; Flash places you in a hard position, be careful using it. Personal opinion, unworthy of 3 points, better spent in maxing Enlightenment.
Spell Warding maxed is nice. However, i didn't pick it, and there's a reason why. You need the points, and for 5 points, 10%redux on only spells is not that appealing.
Oh, and i'm a fan od Desp. Prayer. Very powerful burst heal.
Final issue - this is my least concensual point - is Divine Fury. I see you said also "solo" spec. I also enjoy it, and it provides a much needed burst damage to a Disco through Holy Fire. My playstyle, however, is to always atack through Shadow to avoid spell interruption (Many would argue here...). Picking it or not is a matter of playstyle above all the already said things.
A build of my suggestion would look like http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#bxIbuhGiRIofrktbxuz:uATVzM
. Rapture points are debatable, but I myself enjoy it. It close to nullifies PW:S mana cost. You could, however, use it to max Divine Fury and Aegis.
