    What healing spec for dungeons? (leveling)

    Simple question.. just started a priest and wanted to start healing some dungeons.. I'm currently only lvl 20... Anyways, healing spec for dungeons? Holy vs Disc.

    Thanks in advance!

    Disc is super easy and good dps at the same time. Just go atonement spec and smite away, with the occasional shield thrown in.

    Personally I find Discipline much more enjoyable as it has more interesting mechanics imo - like reducing the cd on inner focus or lowering duration of weakened soul etc.

    Also Atonement <3<3<3

    I have levelled as holy a few years ago and then as disc a month or so ago (on a new server, so new character). I enjoyed Disc so much better, mainly because you can dps 80% of the time until you hit Cataclysm zones and usually be #3/4 on the dps meters. While you dps, it also heals a nearby friendly if you spec correctly.

    Go disc, you wont look back

    Atonement (in the disc talent tree)
    Unlimited range
    When you deal damage with Smite or Holy Fire, you instantly heal a nearby low health friendly target within 15 yards from the enemy target equal to a percentage of the damage dealt.

    If the Priest is healed through Atonement, the effect is reduced in half.

    I'll have to be the weird one and say holy, I've always been holy. Disc is just so boring to me >:|

    Atonement healing for leveling is really fun.

    if i'm allowed to go offtopic for a sec *Hpalas are awsome*

    now back to the topic, i'd say disc is probably your best bet, dungeons will go faster because you can dps, and out dps most dps classes, only loosing if the tank is in hierlooms.. Atonement is fun!

    Yeah I'm atonement as well and I love it. However don't be that disc priest that only casts Holy Fire and Smite, at least toss in some shields and penance from time to time and use Gr Heal/Prayer of Healing when you need bigger/group heals.

    The fun part atonement at least for me is it gives me something to do when there isn't much healing needed and it'll keep minor damage in check.

    I leveled my priest recently and to be honest if you are also doing quests along with dungeons, then just spec shadow until you hit outlands. There is no difference in healing and it saves your instance run time with your extra dps. After that get your disc spec until you reach 85 with atonement.

    I've healed with holy spec until level 60 realizing i have spammed more shadow dps spells than heals.
