1. I use PI for both the reasons you cite: output and/or mana. I cast it more on others, but it can be for either reason. The haste does not stack with bloodlust, so I usually don't do it then unless the mana benefit is needed.
2, I'm guessing the context for shield+penance talk is when the tank (or whatever) has taken a spike of damage. The shield provides instant protection (buying you a little time), and you get a haste buff which penance does not consume. So it's a good combo right after spike damage. I commonly do shield+penance after Maexxna's webspray for instance.
3. I almost always cast PS on the tank or myself. It is sometimes a wipe-preventer when used on the tank especially, and so yes, I think that means I use it as a kind of bubble. On most dps, it won't save them in many cases, and they are usually not as crucial either, so I tend to save it for the tank or healers almost exclusively... Maybe others are different, though.
Thank you for that information. As far as using PS on a Tank, would the 5% reduction in threat be an issue? I am not sure how the mechanics works with that.
Also I went Disp for the first time ever yesterday and I loved it. At level 71, with a 71 DK tank, and a few other under leveled member, we were able to complete a AN run with no wipes. None of us were even high enough to get the quests yet... I was VERY impressed with the spec.
I will continue to try and soak up as much information from you guys as possible !
