    new talent builder up on WoW website. the new talents have lots of +heals and extra resistance to interuption, which will make life easier all in raid. definitely excited for the new talents to be released.

    Yup, I'm gonna have a hard time deciding on a build.

    lightwell is the lamest talent I can imagine. I do like Power Infusion and the new Holy Nova though...

    Power Infusion is interesting, a targetable Arcane Power. Amaterasu will now be required to escort Firemane at all times, in lieu of a ToEP.

    (God I'm already having bad visions of horde priests laying that on epic geared horde mages, especially since Alliance priests don't exist in BGs.)

    Lightwell is still not lamer than Wand Specialization, but it seems an odd Tier 7 talent. Would be somewhat useful between fights to heal the whole party I guess.

    Holy Nova is cool, I assume you'll be able to buy higher ranks. The Snake Boss's Holy Nova hits me for like 12000, no exaggeration. Somehow I doubt this will be the same.

    I see Lightwell as a end game raid talent....People who often take dmg in Melee range need to get out and bandage and touch this to get another heal over time to keep your melee force going and not waste other healer's mana while they keep the tanks alive...this is very useful in long fights that are mana intensive Tiger boss and Hakkar now in ZG, Baron in MC a few BWL bosses....

    Lightwell might be useful in raids as a free-bandage dispenser, but only if it scales up well. Remember, heavy runecloth is 2k over 8 seconds, and rank 1 of Lightwell is only 800.

    I like what they did to Spirit of Redemption. They really did buff the Holy tree, and I feel like the new talents represent their trees well. Discipline = staying power, Holy = massive heals. If I get back into the game, I'll likely respec 30/21 or 31/20 disc/holy.

    If you're complaining about Lightwell then I suppose you've never stepped foot into BWL. That talent is great vs Firemaw and Chrommaggus. At max level, the pools heal for 1600 over 10 sec. and that's not even counting the +heal from gear. So potential of 2500+ over 10 sec. depending on gear and it has 5 charges so basically you can just drop it so others in the raid can use it while you focus on the MT/OT. If the cooldown on that spell is lowered (3 minutes) then it would be awesome. Not to mention that in BG you can just drop it in a spot so your allies can use it while you heal them or kite from attackers (hopefully they make it so enemies can't attack it). I also imagine this stacking with renew so you can use it if you need healing.

    I think that 31 holy/20 disc priests are gonna rock and you'll probably see a lot of them (especially in raids). Imagine Holy Nova + Holy Reach + Spiritual Healing + Spiritual Guidance + a good amount of +dmg/heal/spirit gear = omg healing meter broke.

    Yeah but it'll be hard to use in the heat of battle in BG, since being attacked cancels the effect. I'm pretty sure I'll AE the group before I'll let them heal up en masse.

    I've been all the way up to Ebonroc.

    Free bandages are nice, but the cooldown and number dispensed... is just plain gimped.

    i agree on firemaw, but if anyone other than the MTs are being damaged on chromaggus.. you're doing something very wrong.

    Looks pretty good, although the more I read the more I am intrigued by a 31 point Holy build. I may have to resurrect my dorf priest.

    Firemane will be very hurt if you Power Infuse anyone but her. (She's jealous like that.)

    Like I said, they need to fix that. 10 min CD is ridiculous, number dispensed is fine. It's only in the planning stages though so they might fix it before it's released. Maybe they'll realize the flaw on the test servers. You never know.

    It's the breaths that's usually the cause. You get hit by several Brood Power:Bronze proc while you're trying to hide from the breaths and you'll be in serious trouble. That's where lightwells would be handy. Just put the them at the hiding spots so people can heal themselves.

    I get really ticked when I see "Ignite flesh in 10 seconds" and then I get hit by 3 Bronze in a row. Frost mages can Iceblock out of it but if you're not a frost mage you're pretty much screwed. The lightwell would help a bit or at least give me a chance since most heals are concentrated on the MTs.

    Wouldn't help, since taking damage stops the heal.
