[Sticky] Seebus' Guide to Holiness
Thank you for this fantastic guide! I'll be leveling a priest for the first time when Classic comes out and I know I'll be using this as my main resource.
I see you've provided the specs for leveling. Is there any chance you'd be able to add talent trees with the suggested talents, especially for the level 45 repsec?
What an awesome guide! This will help me alot when Classic is released
Regarding the DM:East AOE Lasher farming, I might have found a nice solution for alliance players. There is a quest item https://classic.wowhead.com/item=13347/crystal-of-zin-malor#provided-for from an Alliance quest that allows you to kill yourself without any durability loss which might be used for getting out of the instance. In order to keep this item you mustn't complete the quest but rather keep it in your quest log. I find it as an elegant way of killing yourself. I quess it might have some other uses like talking with a ghost NPC like the dwarf in BRM.
Seebus hey dude, I play as a smite priest and was wondering if you play it also?
Seebus Do you have a list of spells that are must have and what spells to skip while leveling?
Again great guide!

Sorry for my late reply! I prefer healing over smiting though 😉

Mind Blast: Mind Blast is the ideal spell to use when trying to activate Spirit Tap by getting a killing blow on an enemy. Once you have the deep Shadow talents that increase damage, you'll want to use Mind Blast to finish off enemy mobs. You can train Mind Blast at the following levels: 10, 16, 22, 28, 34, 40, 46, 52, and 58.
