I find the soothe / spirit shock to be an impactful ability but in no means OP / game braking, they will have as much of an impact as abilities like AMS and BoP. They allow groups to lessen or completely negate a mechanic but over all it will be one of those "pick X spec" for each instance to deal with fights like it has been for all of legion.
I was planing on healing with a Holy Priest since discipline is weird to play and I was bored from my druid and paladin healers. Yet here I am reading Holy Priest isn't even in top three for m+ and Holy Paladin I was planing to stay away is still on the top! Only 5 weeks away from BFA yet I am unable to decide which class to play!
Dudes prob played more BFA than you...
