OK, I got the Druid to the point her spec was more Balance than Ballast, but then I decided it was time to get my Priest(ess) up to the point that she was useful for Enchanting. She'll ding 84 off of cooking and fishing dailies tomorrow. Can I get away with going Discipline for normal instances?
I realize that Discipline is generally pigeonholed as a Healer and that Shadow should perform better when I start getting real gear, but I'm not to that point now and PUGs seem to be focused on trying to blitz everything like it is a timed run. PUGs don't want to wait for a Shadow Priest to chug yet another cup of coffee to recover mana, I keep having to off heal and my DPS in Discipline has been fairly solid outside of instances.
