Well - the encounter was solo healed by Jhazrun (holy spec).
And this WAS awsome. :)
Can any of our experts analyse the approach and used strategy?
Thanks a lot :)

Binding Heal - mostly because of the intermission
Lightwell - classic "clickable" Lightwell for increased throughput during Whirling Corruptions.
FD,CL - awesome synergy with 2pcT16 and Serendipity
ToF - no need to explain, obvious choice for this encounter + people falling down sub 35%
Cascade - for refreshing Renews
Crit, Mastery -> Haste, Spirit (he had around 20k+)
Haste for 13k Renew breakpoint + faster PoH's and GH's
Chakra state: Serenity, he switched to Chastise several times in order to kick adds during intermission.
During P1 and P2 he mostly spams Renew + refreshes it on tanks via FD,CL and GH's. Whirling Corruptions and any other raid-wide damage is being negated thanks to pre-Renew + Cascade, Serendipity 2 -> PoH and DH.
While intermission phase seems little tricky to heal, it's nothing more than pre-Renew for FD,CL procs (+ Cascade) and excessive using of glyphed BH in order to build Serendipity 2 for PoH's and refresh Renews.
He was also using Guardian Spirit mainly on himself in order to secure full channel of DH during empowered Whirling Corruption.
In my opinion hardest part to heal is definitelly the intermission phase. Garrosh targeting random people with his annihilates is the deciding factor here. Notice how everyone keeps standing away from Jhazrun in order to minimize chance of putting him in danger and need to move (also notice that how Jhazrun risks - while targeted, he moves away from annihilate like 0,3 sec before slam ;) )
To sum it all up: Clever using of Holy mechanisms, talents and 2pT16 plus awesome performance by (in my opinion) best priest in the World (of Warcraft) secured Paragon a world first.
Hope it helps ;)
Notes for anyone wondering what the hell are all these things in his UI:
Lightning beneath the pony: Cast bar
"Feathers" or "waterdrops" on the right of the pony: each one represents 10% of his mana
Small sun - Serendipity 1, large sun (with sunshafts) - Serendipity 2
Stars under the Sun - FD,CL
(btw.: does anyone know which chat addon is he using? PM me! ;) )

Halo provides great burst dps and hps for intermission adds and whirlings/empowered whirlings.
Make sure to bounce Prayer of Mendings during desecrate/annihilate/whirlings etc.
If it's possible to get by with atonement then do dps. Decide for which abilities you will use spirit shell and remember to tell your other healer. Usually the fight isn't that mana intensive so spamming out Power Word: Shields for the empowered whirlings you can't spirit shell is viable.
Angelic Feathers can be useful for iron star kiting, if it isn't needed go with Body and Soul.
Make sure you have mindbender or shadowfiend available for the heroism in p3.
Void Tendrils can be good to allow for some unreliable crowd control in p1.
Fading before Halo at empowered whirlings can be good so you don't get aggro on too much.

I have to solo heal this encounter as a Disc and I need some advices.
For the moment, I have 8.5k spirit, DPS cloak (but I have the healer one in my bag), tailoring intel proc on the cape. I am used to play with solace but since I am gonna be alone, I am thinking about taking Mindbender for the times where I need to spam PoH.
Sadly, we don't have druids or sham for healing CD, only damage reduction.
I play with :
and me (disc)
At the moment, I am thinking about going for 10k spirit, healer cloak, spirit proc for the cloak and mindbender.
I am not really worried about the damages with all the CDs we have but I am afraid I will go oom really fast. I am gonna try and see for myself of course but if someone reads this post and successfully solo heal this encounter as a Disc, I would like to get as much info as possible.
Thanks a lot.
edit : nevermind, we definitely lack external healing CDs to do that. I just can't keep up with the damages in transition and even if I do, the empowered whirlwind destroys us later. I tried to divine aegis and/or Spirit Shell the raid before the damages and keep spamming poh/flash heal and other things but that doesn't work.
All the videos I could find for solo heal kills had shaman and druids.
Did someone achieve to kill Garrosh as a solo disc priest without external healing CD ?

I feel I have some problems healing Garrosh (hc 10) when it comes down to (E)Whirling Corruption, especially when it is empowered and I have to move.
I picked DS as 90, should I switch this for cascade (I feel DS is important because sometimes the adds in P1 hit really hard!)
Cascade would be better with the whirling corruption, because DS would not hit "enough" targets!
We 2 heal & 1 tank this encounter at the moment (we do not have more good DDs to switch to 1 tank 1 heal, and I would not feel comfortable to do this since WC would kill the raid - I think...)

I believe you'd get a lot out of glyphed binding heal as well, from your logs it doesn't look like you use it often. For discipline I've always found it an extra advantage that it keeps your own health nice and high, so atonement always hits other players (and not yourself, since that would be with a 50% penalty).
A little trick during first transition is to always take the middle orb if there is one, then stand in the middle and just spam spirit shell. The chance that you get the first annihilate is low, since the rest of the raid is on your left and right side. Ask your raid to never run on top of you, and you'll be able to stand still more consistently.
I haven't killed it myself, and haven't had a shot at solohealing either (lack of dps in the guild, sigh), but from the progress we've had, that's what the tips I can give...

I took BH expecially for that reason (it is glyphed in all tries) but often I can not use it (when no add attacks me, there is virually no value for this cast)
I will try halo next time (monday)
thank you very much for your input!
