Q/A – Conversion from Holy?

Question: Hey everyone! So this is my first post on the forums, but i’ve read (and learned) alot. The question i wanted to ask is how hard would it be for me to switch from holy spec to disc spec. More specifically, as holy i stacked spirit pretty heavy, and i know that is a no no for disc, so i was hoping someone could look at my base stats and tell me if they are viable for Disc. I’m pretty well geared (almost full 25 man gear, so i got that going for me) but here it is:

Int: 993
Spirit: 656
Crit: 9.6%
Spell Power : 1919
Haste: 15%

These are base, i just respeced and havn’t put any points in talents yet cause i wanted to move a few points around in my holy tree after the patch, but decided to think about going disc right now instead of whenever i stop procrastinating about it. Saying that, ill get 5% more crit from Holy specilization, along with 15% more int from mental strength (so about 1150 int) and 5% spirit from Forced will i think it is ( so getting to around 700 spirit).

I know this is alot of numbers, which is lame, sorry sorry sorry, but just looking for someone to look at there stats and see if mine are close, and if going disc with this much spirit is viable. Thanks in advance!!

Answer: It may be viable but certainly not ideal. Read up on the FAQ thread here: http://discpriest.com/discipline-priest-pve-healing-f-q/ as it has Spirit as one of the last stats you should be concerned with.

As for recently making the switch over from Holy myself I’d like to welcome you to the club. I know I will probably never go back after being Disc now.
