Hey, I'm new here and just wanted to share the 2 macros I use on my priest. Everything else I do manually cause I got keybinds out the wazoo.
/cast [target=mouseover,help,nodead][target=target] Purify
^ Is my mouseover dispel macro, works like a charm when playing with Gladius too
And if you're farming for gear like I am but getting pooped on cause you're only wearing contenders, try picking up a battlemaster trinket(I got the spirit one) and the talent for Desperate Prayer and combining them for an extra boost of survivabilty...
/use Dreadful Gladiator's Emblem of Meditation
/cast Desperate Prayer
Nothing fancy but damn does it help.
In reply to the post above me:
1- Don't mouseover every single spell or you're going to have a weird playstyle that will take a lot of getting used to. The mouseover is most useful for targeting a hp bar/nameplate without losing your current target. Thats why I think it works best on things like dispels and buffs.
2 and 4-You -need- the glyph in order for the SW:D combo to work at breaking CCs for you. The damage absorbs have to go because it will negate the damage dealing to yourself which is what gets you out of the CCs. Remember damage breaks things like Polymorph, Repentance, Blind, etc... If you can hit a SW:D right at the end of their cast, you will get out of the CC because you took damage 'during' the cc. It takes a bit of practice and Im not currently using this gimmick as I prefer the mass dispel glyph.
3-WHen he says 'dispel the shadowfiend' he doesn't mean dispel it like get rid of it, he's removing the ccs (roots, frost novas, etc) from it. We NEED that cute little guy to smack our opponents every hit he's out because it's a very important mana generator for us disc priests right now.(Especially with Mindbender talent) I'm feeling this patch its super easy to spam your mana away trying to keep your team mates up without pvp power on your weapon or gear. It's a great idea and very useful but I still prefer to hover over its nameplate and use my above mentioned mouseover dispel macro. Just a habit I guess.
Hope this helps answer your questions,
