I've been starting to level my priest again ( he's lvl +60+ ) which i'm planing on making healer (already have a mage, and even though it's a differently style of dps and etc I want to change atmosphere) and was asking myself a couple of questions:
1.a. How are priests doing in PvE, PvP ?
1.b. What specs are viable/not recommended for PvE and PvP ?
2. What is the main difference between Holy and Discipline healing ?
3. What stats should I be looking at ? I know healers in general need a big mana pool with some nice mana regen to go with. So I presume a combination of Int/Spirit should do the job ?
Spell Power is probably most important also, but should I gear with haste, crit, agility ?
4. What professions to go ?
I had him Alchemist/Tailoring 250ish, then dropped Tailoring to go Jewelcrafting (100ish) and i'm quite happy I didn't level him up too high seeing as they are nerfing JC and i'm not sure if it's viable.
5. Good addons ? I've asked the priests in my guild and they all have their own thing, I suppose i'll eventually find some ones that suite me, but until then what should I go with ? Grid, healbot, default UI Oo ?
Thanks in advance, i'll maybe edit some questions in if I find any.
