Needed Disc Changes (if anyone can post on the official wow forums or post feedback in beta, please do)
Aegis changed to Critical heals create a protective shield on the target increases maximum health by 30% of the amount healed for 10 sec.
Grace - 12 secs, activated by PWS
Penace - Added to Healing Focus for heals or changed into an instant (for talented cost reduction and interruption immunity)
Imp Inner Fire - Each rank increases crit by 1%
Twin Disc changed to 3 ranks, Surge of Light moved to T1 Disc, reduced to 10% chance on crits
DS talented (since you can get it from scrolls anyways)
Reflective Shield moved to DS local, reflected damage is now holy spelldamage and doesn't provide rage
imp DS also increases haste by 1% per Priest buff active on the target, this includes grace/renew/PI/PS and other short buffs.
Focused Power changed to increase all hit by 2%.
The ones I find unquestionable and most urgent are the following:
Grace - 12 secs: this is a fair buff to ask. The 6% we have right now is really not overpowered nor underpowered and having those extra seconds to do some other spells will greatly improve the experience of playing Disc as it helps moving away from the spam-bot role to keep grace up.
Imp Inner Fire - Each rank increases crit by 1%: not only this would help to improve a little the heal %s of the disc side(which probably need some buffs) but it also consolidates crit as a key stat for Disc.
DS talented: this is a nice perk to ask for, the disc tree is a bit bloated towards its end so this, along other talent compressions, could greatly help on that department.
Penace Added to Healing Focus: yes please, having channeled spells being interrupted is quite troublesome. Granted that you could be careful and time it in PvE, its just ugly in PvP.
Now on to some comments about some your other changes:
Aegis increases maximum health: this may be a little overpowered depending on whether the effect provides "empty" extra health, or whether the health part gets applied after or before the heal effect. It IS something to think about though.
Grace activated by PWS: with Penance you should not have a lot of troubles starting Grace stacks, but the PW:S focus of Disc could be strengthened by this.
In my opinion, there is a lot of bloating on the Disc tree right now, condensing some talents cold easily enrich the spec a lot. Some examples of condensed talents would be:
Focused Power and Absolution: there is a dispelling sub-theme running in Disc, uniting the dispel related efect of both talents would greatly consolidate it. If possible, this new Absolution also needs a new depth too, there are too many mandatory talents at the third tier talent space.
Focused Power and Focused Will: the hit part of Focused Power could be rolled into Focused Will, as both seem to be more aimed at PvP.
Reflective Shield and Borrowed Time: Reflecting Shield at 5 talent points its a bit too high in my opinion, this should also go nicely with the "healer that also helps a bit on raid DPS" theme.
Unbreakable Will and Martyrdom: as opposed to everyone taking Unbreakable Will as we do now, mostly PvPers will end up taking it after the expansion (due to the dominance of Twin Faiths at the first tier). The second tier of Disc is also awfully bloated, so this could help.
Thats what I have for now, hopefully my proposal is not too far-fetched :P

[e2: added one more talent consolidation option]
Currently I sit at about 1141 arp and was wondering when to stop stacking it. I read earlier that the diminishing returns on arp is not as harsh as other stats, where do other BT/Sunwell warriors stand on it?
Yeah, I was pretty much hoping for someone to tell me its fine to stay with the swords. Cause I like swords (like every rogue ever rolled). I will just give it a whirl and if there is not much change in my DPS I will probably just stay swords
Was just hoping for a way to keep my class lead of my nuts.
Hey Slyven - I see you stayed combat swords - what did you end up experiencing in DPS between the two specs (dual vanirs) vs. what you have now?

I just watched this all DK Blood Furnance run, when they kill the last boss (about 4:38) the loot bar is different. It's gold and shiny. I can't see what the loot is, so I'm not sure is some kind of special item dropped or they just made the endboss of an area have shiny loot. The previous bosses had normal bars.
That wasn't the loot, i assume it was the achievement for clearing BF, you can see them looting a few seconds after the achievement animation fades and it has the normal BoP loot bar.
Answered some pages ago from the Rawr developer himself, take some time to read threads before you post.
Sorry i cant link the post, am on slow dialup connection atm and it would take me more time to find and link than you, i am sure.
Thanks and apologies. Someday I'll learn to use the search button first.
Edit: Jeezus it was the exact same conversation. /hangheadinshame
I'm sorry for not reading the previous 55 pages, I would like to ask if anyone has high end raid experience with spell haste geared resto druid (150-200 spell haste, bt and swp epic's). Thx for answers.
Now can someone tell me why I got a "Received Infraction" for my "useless" post?
Its NOT USELESS since I merely wanted to point out that there's already a 15% on the bow. If you add another 15% from the Quiver it might mess up the calculations...
A "useless" post would be (a combination) nonsense, spamming or just missing the topic. Neither of that fits to my post and ergo I really would appreciate if an admin reconsider his or her actions.
I didnt see this in this thread even though i might have overlooked it seeing as there are 60 pages or more but im struggling with a druid partner of mine in 2s. I am MS/enrage with tac mastery and hes resto with feral charge. My druid will get owned in mage/rogue and pretty much anything with a rogue on its team cept priest rogue cause usually i can kill priest somewhat fast. I intercept back to him and hammy the rogue but if theres a druid i get ccd all the time wheither it be roots or cyclone. should i just set a focus on the druid and stay in battle and on the rogue so i can use my relect macro? should i try to put up sunders on the rogue too or is it a waste? The mage rogue combo could be easy but usually my druid will get caught by the rogue and shattered by mage. ill stay on rogue but only thing i can think of is to tell my druid to keep los the mage but he says he cant because of the rogue. Any ideas?
First of all, greetings to everyone as this is my first post here (of many, i hope).
While checking out new talents for every class it occured to me that Hunters' new Survival talent, Hunting Party, might be quite great for rogues so i wondered if it will change the ideal group setting for a rogue given it's probably 10 energy every 8 seconds? Any thoughts on this? And sorry if it's been discussed so far, if it was i probably missed it.
