I must say that when I first heard that healers would have to DPS whilst healing I was intrigued. Since people who know me well know I like to throw in some dps in Heroics and even the odd fight in Raids. When I healed my first heroic in Cata, it was certainly challenging and I really had to use every trick I had to try and conserve mana. As my gear slowly improved and I started to get a feel for smite healing, this way of thinking and playing became more and more doable.
If last night’s PROPER raid was any indication, it looks at though Disc healing (I really could not see myself as anything else) has a viable future as a raid healer – you just need to look at Skada or WoL’s to see this. This honestly has me a little excited and feeling re-invigorated about my spec. (I really have not felt this way in a very long time).
But then again less is more and everything in moderation. You don’t need too much of a good thing do you? :P
BTW – Thanks again to Coolidge for encouraging me to try the minority spec. Maybe now I can shine a little more in raids :)
