Greetings all you priests!
I've been playing a holy priest for a while, and I was wondering if I could get some feedback on this spec that I've built. I heal mostly heroics, with raids planned for the future. Anything crucial that I'm missing, or any points that would be better spent elsewhere? Any constructive criticism would be great, along with reasons why you would do it differently. Thanks in advance!http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#bVhbuZfxxcb0qihheuVo:f0m0zM

Im a forum stalker ^^ wow-europe it was i think ^^
taking Holy reach
I like holy reach ^^ for encounters like the new VoA boss, or anub in naxx and any boss where people tend to move around, found it giving me the luxury of standing still and being to heal everything from a single spot.
I said that taking Holy Reach was raid healer thing.
I had some time to respec urs and would go for something like:http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#bVcbuZcxtcfMVih0euVo:f0m0zM
i found in raids, there are 2 scenario's when i die, either the rest of the healers manage w/o me, or there is a whipe in progres or coming. Either way i still dont think the "Spirit of redemption" has made a difference for me more then once.
Except the whole 5% extra spirit for 1 talent point!
and well... lightwell is The Bomb! but noone knows how to use it :( i have been trying to train my parties and raids, but that isnt going anywhere so mostly its just me using it (which is nice, but not substancial)
Hit them with sticks! I do notice people using lightwell, but they treat them like bandages (when they can't dps and have damage then they use lightwell). Such a shame.
Thanks for the quick responses, helpful stuff so far! :)
My main activity is heroics, with some raiding planned for the future. Not sure what would be best with the talents I have now, raid or tank healing, but I'd like to heal the raid. I'll edit my OP to say that.
Thanks for pointing out that Silent Resolve's threat reduction is useless, that's the kind of thing I'm looking for. :)
As for Desperate Prayer, so far I've been able to heal myself when needed with Flash Heal, so I don't think DP would be much more useful.
Desperate Prayer gets better when you use more PoH. In heroics you barely use it because, in naxx you use it sometimes and in Ulduar all the time.
Next to that how much do you use Greater Heal? For tank healing you should use it a lot and then a talent like Improved Healing helps, but thats a personal thing. You know got 3% healing on all spells (Blessed Resilience) which also helps a lot.
Holy has a lot room of personal preference, so heal a bit, get some experience and then choose which talents help you and which don't. Or ask around to see how other people use that talent. Your spec is fine when you take Imp Inner Fire. But a lot people would do it differently. The only way to have a perfect spec is to have a spec that feels like you are using all talents and no one in your group dies.
