What would you be using it for? Raids? Pvp? Arenas? Genral mix of evertything?

Your main issues are going to be mana I think. Would you go with healing gear or dmg gear? If healing gear- I would be interested to see how much your VE ticks for.

I personaly think the healing tree has some issues and won't spec into it until they fix some chit.

what if you mixed shadow with disc and picked up healing gear? I want ve for hots. Raiding, if i can get on them, mostly parties, pvp isnt my bag but when i do pvp i dont wanna just heal people i want to do some dmg too, even if its not much.

Does VE work only off your +shadowdmg?

Im tired so im being silly but I want a sexy spec that lets me heal well, but i want the shadow tree too.

You won't do as much dmg as a shadow priest.
You won't have as big of heals as a holy priest.
and you won't have as much mana as a disc. priest.

Jack of all trades, master of none type of thing.
But - you will be able to heal 100% of the time because you won't be in shadow from. You will be able to bounce back and forth from healing and dmg from one mob to the next depending on what is needed without having to drop shadow form – but gear could be a bit tricky. Do you go with healing, dmg or switch back and forth for mobs and bosses?

Well played with good gear I think you could be effective at backup healing at boosting the groups dps. You could probably be the main healer as long as your mana held out on longer fights.

Personally, I haven't seen a shadow/heal spec that works yet.

To get even halfway-decent DPS (especially after the next patch), you need to go very deep into shadow. To be able to solo heal a 5 man or do any sort of raid healing, you need to go medium-deep into *both* Disc and Holy.

Priests don't make a very good hybrid class, unfortunately.

It's the thought that counts, not how many people die because of it.

It'll be interesting to see how viable Smite builds are after they finally fix the bug with Surge of Light next patch. Nice Smite combo, though. Nienna runs with a very similar build and kicks arena butt.
