Difference Between Holy and Discipline

Holy vs Discipline Priest
 

As Holy Priest and Discipline Priest are two types of healing capabilities available to a priest in the world of Warcraft PvP, there are some differences between the two types. Holy priests use their talents to a large extent in healing. In fact, they use their talents to produce the maximum raid healing. Priests can only wear clothe armor. The weapons they can use are daggers, staves, wands, and one-handed maces. Though they have different powers, they focus on healing and protecting your group from harm. Since both have different talents, let us see what each has to offer.

What is Holy Priest?

Holy Priest uses the faith and spiritual connection to heal allies just as any other priest. However, it is important to know that Holy Priests differ from other Area of Effect healers in one way. They do not believe in small heals. Instead, they believe in Waterfall Heal. It is believed that Holy priests should have certain qualities, namely, meditation, inner focus, improved power word, and twin disciplines.

The Holy priests bring out high talents in the Holy tree. These talents include spiritual guidance, spiritual healing, and spirit of redemption. Holy priests show talent in a particular area. Holy priests are capable of causing powerful healing to raids or groups. They are capable of bringing out utility and survivability to others. It is important to know that talent is given points. Talent points become available at level 10. One point is given every second level from then onward to a maximum of 41. A Holy priest can use these points immediately, without having to pay a visit to the trainer.

In fact, talents are looked upon as bonuses and they can be used for upgrades. The holy priest is allowed to pick the area of expertise and can become even more proficient in them. The Guardian Spirit is probably the best survivable strength the holy priest has to offer. In fact, the Guardian Spirit can make you even immortal. If you can take on you a blow with the Guardian Spirit active, then it will heal you for 50% of your ailment and the remaining healing is done by the Spiritual Healing method.
