Discipline Priests in the Current Meta

Discipline Priests are one of a kind. In order to heal their team effectively they need to combine traditional healing and absorption spells, and damaging spells on the enemy to heal through Atonement Icon Atonement. That makes Discipline Priests excellent offensive healers able to support their DPS with damage while healing with it. They also bring an offensive purge to the team for even more offensive pressure. However they are not very mobile and run out of Mana quickly.
