Long title, I had to….
I’ve been learning how to Disco a lot lately, evening running Heroics past my Frost Emblem giving ones. I think I have it down, but as always there’s things one will do on their own that people that have been doing it for awhile will find fault with. So I’m going to tell everyone how I Disco and you can tell me either to “L2P” or “Urdo’inrite”. *Starts Vinyl* Queue Boogie Nights:
As you can see I have a typical Discipline Priest build. This is the same spec that Miss Medicina has so I’m almost 100% sure it’s a good spec for people learning and those who are attuned in the way of bubbling.
I have 2 new spells that I recieve by going this route that differ from Holy. They are Pain Suppression and Inner Focus. I have yet to use them, or understand where to use them. I think it’s that kind of thing that comes with experience. I’m still learning….at least it feels like I am.
All the next stuff is anecdotal learning, sort of the “This happened, I tried this, it worked, I continue to do it that way”. It’s the bull rush, blind-sided type learning which is not for sky-divers nor little priests in the RDF with PuGs…haha.
Lesson One: Before a pull do a check list! Is the tank PoM’d? Is the tank Renewed? Is Renewed Hope up? Are all Weakened Soul cooldowns up? If one isn’t up is those that aren’t up Renewed? This all assuming everyone starts the pull at full health. Tank Pull!
Lesson Two: In the few seconds that the tank is establishing threat be watchful of everyone on your healing add-on, pay close attention to those who draw aggro. If they light up red bubble them, reduce any damage you might have to heal as the fight goes on. I’ve also found in that time frame that a bubble and penance on the Tank will be enough for the first few seconds of the fight, and slap on a Renew as it falls off. These first few seconds in a pull set the rhythm for the rest of the combat, start smooth = end smooth.
Lesson Three: Always always always watch your cooldowns. When a penance would have been perfect and you used Flash Heal…..that’s why you wiped. You let Renewed Hope fall? 3% Damage may not be much but it adds up. You didn’t recast a bubble when Weakened Soul fell from the trigger happy DPS? Would have saved a half productive group member…..I see why you didn’t. 😛
Tips & Tricks:
Bubble, bubble, bubble…..what next…oh yea…..BUBBLE!
PoM, PoM, PoM.
Chaos Erupts: Bubble > Borrowed Hope Penance > Penance > Borrowed Hope Flash Heal > Borrowed Hope Greater Heal > Flash Heal > Greater Heal
That’s Coagulater’s Disco run down. As you can see I left out Pain Suppression, Inner Focus, Hymn of Hope and Divine Hymn as these are situational and still not implanted in my brain as USE USE USE kind of spells.
Definitely looking for feedback on this, I’d like to be raid viable once I start getting my gear up-to-par for ICC25.
Tip: Jump south of the Temple of Storms in Stormpeaks, cast Levitate, enjoy the view.
