Healer Rotation & Cooldowns

During combat you are constantly making decisions for what to cast next. Knowing what to do and when is critical for being effecting at healing. This rotation guide should help give a basic understanding of what to do, what's most important, and how to prioritize Discipline Priest abilities and cooldowns.

Healing Style

Discipline Priests healing style is centered around Atonement. This works by first using the healing abilities to apply the Atonement buff to your healing target.

Then, you can switch to using damage dealing abilities; typically Schism (if selected), Penance, Mind Blast, and Shadow Word: Pain (or Purge the Wicked if selected), 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.

DPS Rotation during Atonement

When you're no longer setting up Atonement, you can be doing damage following a priority list like this:

  1. Shadow Word: Pain maintain DoT (See Note 1)
  2. Schism
  3. Halo (during raid damage)
  4. Power Word: Solace on CD
  5. Penance on CD
  6. Mind Blast

Note 1: For bosses, Purge the Wicked is more effective in this priority slot.
