Priest Healing at 90 (New)

masquedwriter wrote in wow_ladies
Hi everyone,

Okay, so, basically I have a level 90 priest. I started her as a disc priest but got distracted by shadow around level 60 and haven't really played with my healing spec since. I find the idea of making another DPS toon kind of dull so I thought I'd work on getting her healing spec up and running. I've redone my keybindings/set up the appropriate glyphs and done some research into healing with her at 90 but I'm feeling very overwhelmed with getting started.

Any tips on how to go about getting good enough gear? Should I start in normal to just get back in the swing of things? Any other tips to make it not so overwhelming all at once?

I really wish I hadn't opted to play the DPS spec to 90. I feel completely out of it now.

Thanks for any advice.

I don't play Priests, but i can give some basic advice that I found useful that is pretty much universal.

1. Questing helps a lot with some basic gear now and then, as well as giving you a feel for the new spec

2. If you're in a guild, ask your guildies if they can give a hand with Priestly heal gear, meaning if there's any tailors offer them mats or at least a tip for the appropriate stuff

That's all I have for now, I know there's more! Also, depending on your server's economy, good gear can be had for a reasonable cost.

^ this, re questing. I went and did a bunch of questlines after I hit 90 with my monk (I should also mention that I did virtually no dungeons while leveling cause anxiety) and she had just over 440 ilevel after dinging, which was well sufficient for queueing for dungeons. (Granted, the fact that apparently every group I ran with expected 50k dps minimum resulted in me just saying "fuck it all" but. :-\)

Nyx's advice is good re gear - if you are in a helpful guild, see what they can make for you. Scribes can make staffs (and a wonderful trinket if they will get the cards together for you), tailors can make gear, not sure if JCs can make any rinks or necks that are useful. And if you have left any higher level areas incomplete for quests, do them and make sure your spec is set to heals when you hand in the quests so you get the offer of gear for that spec. You really need it as you will go oom very fast without spirit (Im told at least 4k worth). Obviously flasks, buffs and enchants help there but only so far.

And I plan to start on normal so I get the mechanics of the fights on a slightly more forgiving level.

I'm trying to do it mysef with my paladin, so good luck (:

JCs can make 450ilvl necks and rings, and are IMO relatively cheap to make. I have bunches of the mats on my JC, with the exception of the vermillion onyx and that is I recall pretty cheap. (If OP happens to be on Wyrmrest Accord Horde side, I am more than happy to provide.) They seem to only go for a few hundred gold on average on my server, at least last I checked, so they also are probably not too expensive to buy either.
