Paladin vs Priest ( Disc, Shadow) PvP

This post was from a user who has deleted their account.
As a holy paladin there really is no way, you simply cant pump out enough damage, and you're not going to win a mana war with someone who has mana burn.
Against a Disco priest it goes something like this: as a ret pally its all about timing your burst, don't run in with wings and trinket popped to someone who has a full set of buffs and is on 100% Hp. Wear them down a bit, after a while, healers feel comfortable enough to try and dps (/mana drain) you if its a one on one. This is the time to go to town. Wear the PW:S down, try and make them blow trinket on an early stun, or better yet repentance. Simply survive until your hammer CD is ready, catch them w/o a PW:S on and pref lacking PoM/renew and basically with as few CD's as possible. You need to be able to burst them down. Try and get them to ~75/80% Hp then let them get hit by a steamtrain (yes that train is you).
P.S. make sure you have Shadow resist aura and dispel SW: Pain off yourself whilst trying to maintain sacred sheild and BoM.
Against a shadow priest its different, generally easier: the one big worry is gonna be Dispersion (90% damage mitigation) get them to pop that at a bad time and you've won as it has a long CD. Time it so they have no PW:S on, stun away and hit them with all ye have (get HoW ready!). It might take 2 cooldowns of a hammer if they can outlast your burst/dispersion the first, but its a fight already won. Dispell all DoTs possible (careful with vampiric touch-has an effect like UA), because you want to lower the incoming dmg as much as possible, yeah they'll get mana back, but mana isnt helpful when you're about to get hit by well over 15K damage in the next 5 seconds.
P.S. Make sure to hit every AoW proc and have shadow resist aura up, keep up your helpful buffs up as much as possible.
Hope that helps/ some more experienced pvp pallies see this and can give you some better advice :) - GL!
