    Which bodyguards the better option?

    Leveling an Spriest and I'm wondering what bodyguard i should use, so far I'm only aware of sol.

    You get Zabra around 103/104 who can act as a bodyguard for leveling, but he doesn't hold aggro as well as Sol does. I like Sol better, but he comes later. I think around 108-110. I play Holy and use the 110 bodyguard you get during the Legionfall campaign for my daily stuff, but that's mostly because she has all the best follower stuff and she ends up taking some aggro off me.

    Okay thank you, i won't worry about it too much until i get Sol, and once I've got him I'll swap to the legionfall one.

    Don't forget about Meatball from the Brawler's Guild. He gives you a periodic damage buff, has pretty good aggro, and also has an execute ability.

    1. Aethalyste - is an unkillable banshee that taunts off you (really the only thing spriests need)
    2. Meatball - decent threat and damage
    3. Sol - decent aoe threat
    4. Alonsus Faol - good-ish damage/healing and lore reasons
    5. Zabra Hexx - good-ish damage, annoying
    6. High Priestess Ishanah - good cooldown but not every too useful

    Really they need to make Alleria a follower for us, since she's Shadowy now

    I use the banshee personally, but only because she has a taunt that she uses occasionally. I dont even notice her dps tbh. I just loaded her up with the best garrison resource generation upgrades i could get and ignore her. You dont get her until well into 110 though iirc. I used Sol for a while then dropped him because i found him pretty useless and got tired of him pulling adds i wasnt in combat with.

    Dont forget about Fade. You momentarily drop aggro and your target moves toward your escort giving you ample time to top off or dps without interference.

    People who play with their sound on have been to known to destroy their speakers with a hammer after using Aethalyste as a bodyguard. She rocks, but she talks constantly

    I find him just too OP for missions....but if you kinda don't care for them....

    Drawback: Some missions to get him already need pretty highly geared followers

    Levelling I found Sol [the light guardian thing] to be great, after that Meatball is the best.

    So, the most important thing to know about Sol is that he is a stone-cold badass. If you aren’t taking this muscle-bound slab of lightspawn into the broken isles, you should just uninstall and go throw your computer into a trash can, because Sol has a Master’s Degree in bringing the pain and a PHD in keeping your stupid-ass alive. He literally gives no @#$%s, and will fight anything in the game while screaming “I AM LIGHT INCARNATE” and critting them with massive holy smites from the heavens.

    Accidentally pull all of Suramar’s market because you got caught with your pants down by an orbitist? Don’t worry, Sol’s gonna keep you alive with his sweet, sweet healing because he knows that you guys are boys. A so-called group world boss punching your squishy priest body for more than you can shadowmend? Hit fade, and Sol will laugh as he absorbs the blows and keeps on bringing the fiery pain. And in the unlikely event that they take Sol down to 0, Sol just tells your enemies “I will return” and sure as *[email protected]# comes back to life 5 seconds later to keep bringing the pain.

    If you do send him out into the world on an Order mission because your job of farming world-quests gets interrupted by your ^&*!ty real-life job, Sol is even a badass there. Sol has countered entire missions by himself, taking on giant birds, angry ghosts, and horny demons with ease. But, don’t send him alone, because Sol gives 15% Bonus Success if he takes acolytes with him. That’s because Sol knows how to party, after crushing a keg Sol and your acolytes will be so hyped that the even Sargeras will be ^&*!ting himself in fear.

    Take him world questing, take him exploring, take him to the club to pick up Draenei chicks with those massive guns he calls arms, doesn’t matter. Sol is your loyal wingman, and when you’re walking around with this guy, players and NPCs know you mean business. When your priests are talking about praising the light, they aren’t talking about some unknown human god, they’re talking directly about the unspeakable badass that is Sol.
