1) Disc, or Holy? I've levelled primarily as Holy, but I've taken a month or two off of the priest, to the extent that I'm relearning the playstyle anyway, so swapping to Disc wouldn't be as much of a shock to the system! (Off spec is Shadow) As I understand it, it is a case of reducing damage via absorbs v stronger direct healing, but I'm a novice really in terms of healing.
Disc. Its about instant and mana efficient absorbs and healing, silence prevention and passive damage reduction talents. Much harder to kill, much harder to get oom.
2) I'm having trouble setting up addons like Healbot, especially when it comes to the larger battlegrounds like AV and IoC. I'd like to set it up so that when I'm within range of my allies the bar is coloured and solid, and when I'm not it is simply greyed out. None of the halfway nonsense, as I'm sometimes finding it hard to distinguish between in range and out of range.
Vuhdo seems to be doing it as default, also shows direction arrows, if they are close.
Not very familiar with healbot, vuhdo does pretty much all as a default.
P.S. I tried posting this in the priest forum, but have had no luck, so have tried here instead :)
Double posting/threading is considered against the forum rules.
As for spec, i dinged mine recently and here is
what i think is correct. You can also go drop 2 points from Darkness and put them in Inspiration, while also using major glyph of Inner fire instead of Prayer of Mending for more self surv against physical dps.

Disc is vastly superior for PvP.
I used healbot for arenas and just keybinds for battlegrounds.Noxxic
usually gives decent pointers about PvP/PvE for each individual class, but i also check what the top Disc priests in PvP are doing to confirm.
Thanks very much :)
I have had a look at Noxxic in the past I think, but it always seems quite brief in terms of the information, you know?
