I guys. I would love to hear everyone's opinions on power infusion. I am used to giving power infusion to myself during healing intense phases on most encounters. Having the 20% mana reduction paired with my priest set bonus really helps me out. When I don't need PI, I will usually give it to a fire mage, boomkin, or spriest.
I am currently told by a whisper macro from my guild leader "PI ME NOW," as when he wants me to PI him. I am more than happy to do this when I do not need my PI. My issue with giving it to the raid leader isn't that I am giving it to him, but when I am giving it to him. I want to give it to someone when I can benefit from MY set bonuses the most. I was told that that giving PI to myself was "bad," and that no disc priest should give themselves PI ever, Which I completely disagree with. I am sure there are multiple schools of though on this issue. And perhaps neither side is right or wrong.
Of course, being new to my guild and wanting to listen to the raid leaders instructions I did what I was told with no argument. I also really like all the people in my new guild including the raid lead/gm. He is a super nice guy and seems to be a good leader, we just happen to disagree on this issue. Also, he is a shadow priest so he is a good target for PI.
Some people claim PI is a "dps only" cool down. I disagree. I have looked at logs from top priests to see what they are doing. I noticed that most are doing what I am. they are giving it to themselves when they need it, and to dps on less intense encounters.
these are some logs from some top priests that I respect and admire that sometimes, or often give themselves PI. Note that they do not always target themselves for PI but on some of the more healing intense fights like madness they do/have.

So how do your guilds handle PI? And do agree with how they handle it? Should I stand up for my opinion or just be silent on this issue as not to cause any stress? I don't want to piss anyone off. I am currently a new recruit in this guild- and I like it a lot and want to stay there for a long time.
thanks for reading!
