    priest leveling, tips?

    Hey guys, I'm leveling a priest at the moment, any tips ?

    just some info:
    Its level 13 atm, undead.
    I have 2x heirloom, cloth shoulders and chest.
    Planned to go shadow spec, atm i have 3/3 spirit tap and 1/2 imp spirit tap talents

    I am mainly wondering what stats are more important (int or spirit?), what spec to use and what rotation to use (when I get the spells that is).

    thanks and sorry for my bad english.

    Read the sticky on this please, it should help you a ton. Also, the higher your level gets, the easier it gets. Don't give up!

    You can casually raid a couple short nights per week, and if you are skilled, you will clear that content eventually.
    Or you can bang your head on it every night for 5 hours straight and eventually you will clear it even with crap for skills.

    I still find it ammusing we need a sticky and guide on how to level... wear items with superior stats, don't bother dotting anything if it's only going to last a few seconds and make sure you have some water in your bags.

    Yes, priests are known to be a little... Slow.

    My tip is (at your level) make damn sure you have a good wand. The Greater Magic one will last you for a while, then a suitable replacement is the one from BFD quest.

    don't take improved spirit tap, put point in darkness until 2nd tier talents open up. grab glyph of shadow word pain.

    Actually, get a glyph of power word: shield. Make sure you have it on 100% of time.

    At lower levels, your rotation is: mind blast as opener -> devouring plague or SW:P -> PW:S -> mind flay/MB/wand. Make sure to give stamina, spirit buffs all the time + inner fire.

    At level 20, you will get Holy Fire - amazingly good and cheap spell. Stop using at level 40 with shadowform.

    At later levels your opener will be vampiric touch -> SW:P -> mind flay -> PW:S -> MB.

    And prepare to drink a lot though it gets so much better from level 40 and especially 60.

    If you have an 80, 3 pieces of leveling gear, the staff shoulders and chest, enchant the staff with +30 spell power, get a good wand and shadow word pain/wand stuff till you get mind flay. once you can get a glyph get the SW:P glyph for mana regen. This should be enough to get you leveling fast.

    Shadow priest is on the slow side until you get shadowform.

    For leveling... I mainly looked for gear with the most spirit on it. It seems kind of silly, but with spirit tap I literally never drank. With the changes to vampiric embrace, it's going to make leveling even faster.
    I haven't been low level like you are right now in a while though.

    at levels 60+, spriest is probably one of the easier classes to level. Very little downtime.

    why not? because we are all experience players and know how to level a priest right.

    Why should there a guide/sticky on dps/heal, you can probably figured out the best way after some tries like a new priest trying to figured out how to level.

    This contradicting position you have is mind boggling.
