This spec / talent build is for level 80 Priests and the 3.3.5(a) version of World of Warcraft
Holy Priest healers were once considered as the only real healer class/spec (Vanilla). However, with other class/specs getting more healing-wise mechanics, talents and abilities, they have gotten some more competition and thus aren't as popular as they used to. Perhaps one of the factors in the diminishing amount of holy priests is their difficulty to be played correctly.
Discipline Priests have their potential in PvE healing (even though they are mainly PvP healers), but mostly as a 'support spec' in 25-man raids.
What makes Holy Priests good healers (and harder to play) is their versatility ("a spell for every situation") and of course their big heals.
