I’ve got to say – I completely enjoyed levelling a Discipline Priest.
I transferred Avienith to Deathwing to give Mina heirlooms. At that point, she sat there at level 10 until the 6th of this month when I decided to pick her up again. Today, I reached 85.
I’m surprised it went as quickly as it did. I haven’t managed to “grasp” Shadow yet, so once I got in to Wrath levels and had to quest for efficient levelling, it was a little interesting to have to kill quest mobs in Disc spec.
This was multiplied once I reached Cata, but I took a slightly different approach to questing on this toon. Because Mina can get the head enchant, I was able to hit my beloved Vash’jir when I hit 80. It made me SO HAPPY to not have to go through Hyjal. I still moved on to Deepholm at 82, but I completely finished that zone before I moved on, which took me about halfway through 83. In Uldum, I only did the Harrison Jones questline so that I could open up the dungeon quests in Halls of Origination. I didn’t do any of the level 82 dungeons until this point. Shortly in to 84, I finished there and headed to Twilight Highlands.
Dungeon quests and Crucible of Carnage saved me a lot of trouble in Highlands. Things don’t die nearly as fast as on my shamans, so all the “kill things” quests took a little bit longer, but I still managed. At least I wasn’t *dying* because I was healing myself the whole time – go atonement! 😉
Now the real fun: time to see if I can manage healing on the priest at max level. Let the games begin!
Do you have any advice for a newbie Disc healer? If you do, please let me know!
