Click for article on our patch 7.0.3 update progress for these guides. Pew pew!

The following rotation guide was developed through extensive simulations and play testing with the goal of keeping the guide as simple as possible without sacrificing performance. This guide also included AoE rotations and provides details on when to use special talents and cooldowns.

Single Target Rotation

Atonement Healing: Use this spell priority for Atonement healing.

Discipline Priests rely heavily on Atonement for healing. Atonement healing works by first using your healing abilities, usually Power Word Shield and Plea, to apply the Atonement buff to your healing target. Then, you can switch to using damage dealing abilities; typically Penance, Smite, and Shadow Word Pain, to continue to heal your Atonement targets while also dealing damage. Repeat this cycle by maintaining Atonement with your healing spells and then switching to damage spells to continue healing.

AoE Rotation

AoE healing works similar to single target healing with the notable addition of Power Word Radiance which allows you to quickly apply Atonement to multiple targets. Use Power Word Radiance as needed for direct healing and to apply Atonement and cycle to your damage dealing abilities to maintain healing on your Atonement targets.


Information on how to incorporate the selected talents from this guide into your rotation is currently being re-worked for 7.0.3. Check back later!

    Effective Cooldowns

    These are effective cooldowns to try and incorporate into most all encounters.
