i don't so much worry about where i'll stick my talent points. i'm more concerned about the impact on my overall damage in any given fight. we usually run with one or no disc priests, depending on the fight. is there a way to disect how much spellpower i'm really gaining in a fight from logs? also i have the talented/glyphed wards and 2 points in Magic Absorption (relevance?) and use them in the appropriate fights/phases when i can spare the GCD. p.s. i'm not one who's afraid to pop mana shield to save my skin, either.
