Your guide lists Amalgam's Seventh Spine as being the best mana regen trinket, but sims show Darkmoon Deck: Promises as easily pulling ahead.

I did a spreadsheet showing the mana saved for both trinkets, and Promises definitely outclasses Amalgams purely for mana regened. However, this does not take into account the added intellect of Amalgams. As a general statement, if you can get a higher item level Amalgams from BRH, it will be better than Promises.

I am really confused as to why Purge the Wicked is showing as the best talent to have, when it is such a temperamental talent to use.  I still cannot get it to spread to more than 1 extra target, and in dungeon situations, when you want it to spread, the targets die too quickly anyway.

Does anyone have any data on why PtW is better than Divine Star, especially while the penance spread is broken?

For raids, PtW even on one target is better in terms of damage (thus healing) than Halo. Unless you're in a bursty single target situation, Halo may win out.

For dungeons, you could take Halo if you're comfortable with it, but PtW is still likely better in terms of raw damage / healing over the course of the run. It's really up to you for M+ and how you feel healing during certain affixes. Sometimes Halo could be an ideal candidate here.

Divine Star doesn't do enough healing or damage to beat out either. Also, having to aim it and taking up a GCD more frequently makes it less than ideal.

Ugh.  There is so much wrong with this guide.

First: Never take Schism.  It's not about skill or ability, it's about maintaining atonement.  Schism is a trap.  It looks pretty on paper, but with a 6 second cooldown, it forces you to recast it every. six. seconds.  This almost never lines up with Penance or Solace, and if you're casting Radiance for multiple atonements, you have to time Schism perfectly.  Too perfectly.  Meaning your uptime on BOTH Schism and Atonement are going to suffer.

Second: Speaking of Solace.  Don't.  Take Mindbender.  Coupled with Power Infusion, and assuming you're good at keeping your atonements up, this combo will net you some serious healing during aoe-intense fights.

Third:  Plea is not a heal.  Yes, it "heals" but so did Glyph of Power Word: Shield, and that was an absolute no-no for disc priests.  Plea is an atonement applicator.  That's it.  The math on it is correct in this guide, but it should NEVER be used as a heal when someone is taking serious damage.  Shadow Mend IS YOUR HEAL.  Period.

Fourth:  Mastery is NOT our stat now.   Haste is our primary stat after intellect.  Unless you don't plan to ever use Radiance, but if you aren't, then you should be playing holy.  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NbsDtJLVZqNc87jFzt-6WlPL02JOYmwppS1INtjVQTw/pub This is the guide you should be following.  It has a few errors, but it mostly hits the mark, especially for new players or new disc priests.  

Icy-veins, honestly, you haven't hit disc on the head ever.   You're always way off the mark and your advice goes from cringe-worthy at best to just plain wrong.  I don't expect this comment to be approved by a moderator, and that's okay.  It's mostly for the people who write this stuff.  

Thanks and have a great day

You do realize that the post you quoted was from over a year ago, right? Of course it's out of date now.

As Silver says, the first posts in the thread are from when Legion "started", so when the guides first started getting released for the new setups and builds. This means we have plenty of comments from last year around June/July. 

Thanks anyway for coming to contribute/comment! :)

Definitely a possibility! When it appears, you'll have to give yourself a pat on the back :D

Nailed it :) current disc should be very strong and maybe will be the surprise healer of the tournament, vs the usual cookie cutter druid.

Recently I got two legendaries that are making me pause to think about what to use. Previously I have been using [Pyrdaz], with the best enchant and 200 Int gem, and [Soul of the High Priest] with 200 haste enchant and 200 haste gem. But I just got Velen's and Skjoldr, Sanctuary of Ivagont.  I am now conflicted on what ones I should use for raids and dungeons. I know that Skjoldr is probably the weakest of the 4, but the comments on it in the guide said it was good for dungeons. Which two should I use in raids, and which should I use in keystones? 

If needed to be known by 'replacements' for each slot are: 

Neck: Item level 930
2,422 Stam
1,911 Vers
1,609 Mastery

Bracers: Item level 955
2,038 Int
3,057 Stam
366 Crit
375 Mastery

Ring: Item level 950
2,917 Stam
2,497 Vers
1,476 Mastery

For trinkets I have 3 different ones I use depending on whether I'm doing dungeons or raids. 

For dungeons:
A 960 http://www.wowhead.com/item=133645/naglfar-fare&bonus=1612:1727

A Heroic 925 http://www.wowhead.com/item=147007/the-deceivers-grand-design&bonus=3562:1507

For raids I use: 

Naglfar again

A 955 http://www.wowhead.com/item=151340/echo-of-lura&bonus=1607:1727

 

 

I'm thinking Prydaz and Velens for raids, (Using Naglfar as remaining trink.) 

And for dungeons Prydaz and Skjoldr... Or maybe Pyrdaz and Soul of the High Priest. With Naglfar and Deceiver for trinkets.

Edit: I also have the Antorus 2 set bonus, but that won't be interfered with any of these.

I'd definitely take Pryd + Velen for raids, yeah. There's not much to change there at all.

For M+, it depends on the key. Skjoldr can be solid if your tank constantly requires an external to stay alive (very high keys on any burst affix), but you'll often just use Pain Sup needlessly or hold onto it, devaluing the legendary somewhat. I'd heavily recommend stick with Velen's, Prydaz and High Priest. All 3 are great in M+ and you can use whichever combination you prefer.

This guide will be updated for the release of the pre-patch of Battle for Azeroth in the next few days. We are aiming to have every guide deployed prior to the patch going live.

Please note that a new feedback thread will be created for the new guide, meaning that this one will be archived. Any feedback you have for the new guide should be placed in the new comment thread.

Thank you all for your patience and we are working to get the new guides up as soon as possible.

      There's more class changes coming to the PTR and Visions of N'zoth, as Discipline Priests' Schism will only increase damage done from Priest effects only. For other class changes, featuring more Priest tweaks, as well as Druid, Mage, Monk, Paladin and Warlock entries, check out our initial coverage of patch 8.3.

      There's been a lot of feedback on the Auction House changes introduced on the PTR and today Blizzard have responded to a lot of it, with some answers about how the AH will work in general, as well as PTR specific issues.
      Auction House (source)
      We think you can do this by using a combination of the “Uncollected Only” checkbox in the filter dropdown and the Armor/Weapon categories on the left.
      ...
      All versions of the same pet will be grouped in the same page. Since the auctions on that page will be mix of various levels, rarities, and stats, it’ll be up to the buyer to determine which pet they want to buy.
      ...
      At this time, we’re continuing with the 48-hour max duration the WoW auction house has always had.
      ... Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback so far!
      Here are some known issues that will be fixed on upcoming PTR builds:
      Dressing Room support (CTRL click) Linking to chat (Shift click) Durations showing the wrong times Then there's a lot of responses to current issues that are either PTR specific, or will be resolved quickly:
      AH (source)
      We don’t have wildcard functionality, but you can simply search for the first few words (example: Notorious Combatant’s Intuitive Staff) and it will return all items matching that.
        Not at this time, but thank you for the suggestion.
        The “Uncollected Only” filter will return all items that you don’t have the appearance for. As a result, you may see several items for the same appearance.
        There is a “Usable Only” filter that will only show you recipes you can learn.
        Not at this time, but thank you for the feedback.
        Not at this time, but thank you for the suggestion.
      ... Thanks! We’re aware of duration displays issues, and we’re working on that right now.

      In Visions of N'Zoth, you will be able to purchase crates which contain items tied to specific Islands and invasions from a new vendor. Therefore, do not spend your dubloons until Patch 8.3 hits live servers.
      As you probably know, each Island has specific items tied to it ranging from battle pets, mounts, toys up to transmogs that you can get upon finishing an Island Expedition. We've datamined two categories of items that will be available for sale in Patch 8.3 from a new vendor.
      The first category includes Island-specific crates which cost 175 Seafarer's Dubloons each and you can purchase three at a time, depending on the Island Expeditions that are available during that week:
      Crestfall Salvage Dread Chain Salvage Havenswood Salvage Jorundall Salvage Rotting Mire Salvage Skittering Hollow Salvage Snowbloosom Salvage Molten Cay Salvage Un'gol Ruins Salvage Verdant Wilds Salvage Whispering Reef Salvage The second category are invasion-specific crates which cost 75 Seafarer's Dubloons each:
      Elemental Salvage contain items from Elemental invasions. Venture Co 'Salvage' contain items from Tol'vir and Black Dragon invasions. Other Patch 8.3 Content:

      Here come some more hotfixes for both retail and Classic, with the Classic side just being the already mentioned Dire Maul bug fix for stacking tribute buffs. On the BfA side we have higher chances for R4 Condensed Life-Force drops off Azshara, PvP fixes for Conflagration and more, increased gold rewards for weekly Island Expedition quests and Naga invasions for rank 70 neck holders and a lot more!
      October 16 (source)
      Items
      Increased the chances for someone who does not have a Rank 4 Condensed Life-Force (Essence) to loot it from Queen Azshara (Mythic difficulty). Pet Battles
      Fixed an issue that allowed some battle pets to become invincible after being resurrected in battle by Finduin or Gillvanas. Player versus Player
      Fixed an issue that caused Fire Mages’ Conflagration (Talent) to interfere with PvP diminishing returns on enemy targets. Resolved an issue that prevented characters that have not yet obtained their 9th weekly Conquest’s Reward from gaining the Spoils of War buff (50% bonus Conquest) during Rated Arenas and Rated Battlegrounds. Quests
      The weekly Island Expeditions quests, “Azerite for the Horde ” and “Azerite for the Alliance ” now reward 2,000 gold for players with a maximum-level Heart of Azeroth (level 70). World Quests
      Naga Incursions now award gold or war resources to players who can no longer progress their Heart of Azeroth (level 70). WoW Classic
      The buffs obtained from the guards in Dire Maul North after completing a tribute run will no longer stack.
