I just started leveling a priest (after much debate, seeking a class to keep me interested in the game) and I have much intention of healing dungeons more often than not. I will have a shadow off-spec for questing/pvp but i was wondering, from level 10-80 or so on, which spec would be better/more enjoyable?
I'm hoping priest is the class that does it for me (after trying shaman (at 80) and a hunter)
I thought so. It seems penance/the early talents will be better for disc than holy...especially since the spell you get for choosing holy isn't much of a healing spell. And yeah, shield/penance does do a lot of healing compared to incoming damage at lower levels.
Discipline is the way to go, spec into evangelism and archangel and you'll be able to pretty much solo quests and still be able to heal dungeons, on a bit higher level you could go Attonement and spam smite in lower level dungeons, it will heal the tank. Oh the never endless fun .
edit: I don't get it, I think Chakra sucks or am I just too much into disc healing... I don't find holy as half as interesting as Discipline but oh well, thats just me.
