I was recently looking into leveling a new character as I usually have a trend of swapping classes every time a new expansion comes around:
For Vanilla WoW: Rogue
For Burning Crusade: Mage
For Wrath of the Lich King: Paladin (I'm proud I leveled it pre-3.0. It shows my dedication)
And for Cataclysm I was looking at a Priest, most likely shadow.
How is the experience of leveling a Priest? I currently have one stalled at Level 35, with heirloom pieces, but as it stands, it's my lowest alt.
I understand that Shadow Priests are currently on the low spectrum of top-end DPS charts, but a few good friends of mine who used to play Holy or Discipline are now Shadow and loving it, including one who is the proud owner of Death's Demise and Grand Crusader.
I am a big fan of what appears to be the playstyle of a Shadow Priest, and was hoping for some confirmation from the more experienced players out there. It's not too different from a Feral Druid, in which there is no set rotation, just an order of importance for DPS. (From what I understand: DoT's Max Uptime, Mind Blast on Cooldown, Mind Flay for fillers, clipping as necessary to reapply DoTs)
I have a few more questions, but this seems to be enough for one person (or many) to try and tackle at once.
