General Information

Welcome to our Discipline Priest healing guide for World of Warcraft Legion 7.0.3. Here, you will learn everything you need to know about playing a Discipline Priest in a raid environment, although most of the content also applies to normal and heroic dungeons.

About Our Reviewer

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Beerek, one of the best healing Priests in the world, who raids in Serenity.

1. Class Overview

The Discipline specialisation relies on healing players through dealing damage (thanks to the Atonement Icon Atonement passive). This allows them to contribute to the raid's DPS while still performing well as a healer. From a strictly healing perspective, Discipline Priests will be below the other healer specialisations, but they compensate for this with the extra DPS they bring.

Due to their reliance on DPS, Discipline Priests suffer whenever there is no target to attack.

In order to properly play a healing role, you will need more than just class-specific information. To better understand healing in general, we recommend that you read our healing guide.

2. Significant 7.0.3. Changes

The Discipline specialisation has changed drastically from Warlords of Draenor. We list the most important changes below.

  • Atonement Icon Atonement has now become the primary means of healing players (by dealing damage).
  • Power Word: Shield Icon Power Word: Shield no longer applies Weakened Soul, Divine Aegis has been removed, and the Discipline Mastery no longer improves absorbs, but instead improves Atonement healing.
  • Borrowed Time and Rapture have been removed (although a different ability with the name of Rapture Icon Rapture has been introduced).
  • Shadowfiend Icon Shadowfiend no longer restores Mana.
  • Penance Icon Penance can now only be used to deal damage (unless you take a specific talent to allow it to heal).
  • Two new abilities have been introduced and are part of the regular rotation/playstyle: Plea Icon Plea and Shadow Mend Icon Shadow Mend.
