Classic WoW Priest Leveling Tips

Priest Leveling Tips

  • -No matter which specialization you choose when leveling, your first 10 talent points should go into Spirit Tap and Wand Specialization. Both of these talents will help you keep your mana high and reduce downtime, a significant drawback of Priest leveling. Once you have enough talent points, you can remove Wand Specialization in favor of Shadowform.

 

  • -Spirit is, by far, the most important stat for Priests. Make sure you always take gear with the highest Spirit stat. Not only does it feed your mana regeneration, it also contributes to Spell Power for Priests, meaning spells (be they damaging or healing) will hit harder.

 

  • -Avoid casting spells which cost a lot of mana. While Shadow Word: Pain is incredibly efficient, other spells might not be. If you are running out of mana, examine which spells you are using and prioritize accordingly.

 

  • -Priest spells are incredibly varied. Be sure to read the descriptions of each and try them out to become familiar with their effects. Knowing every tool in your toolbox will help you make the most of each one, making you a more well-rounded and powerful player.

 

  • -Shadow Word: Pain is a potent spell, but it also has a long duration. Avoid casting it on enemies which are close to death. Begin fights with spells like Holy Fire or Smite, then cast Shadow Word: Pain, then finish them off with your wand. Later on (once you have obtained Shadowform, you’ll be better suited using Shadow Word: Pain and spells like Mind Flay.

 

  • -Once you adjust to the rhythm of playing the Priest class, you may find yourself capping on mana. If this is the case, play a bit more aggresively, using higher damage spells a bit more frequently. Ideally you should be hovering at around 75-80% mana from one pull to the next.

 

  • -Once you obtain Shadowform, it’s even more vital to prioritize Shadow damage, and this extends to wands as well. If you have two wands with similar damage, but one deals Shadow damage, use that one to gain the 15% Shadow damage boost from Shadowform.

 

  • -The Priest has a wide variety of spells which are incredibly potent if used in thoughtful and creative ways. For example, did you know Mind Control works on enemy players? If you were to Mind Control an enemy player close to a cliff… well, who’s to say what could happen…
