Also, anyone got a decent fun fact for druids?
Good to know ^.^ Will include it into Misc. Info.
Thanks for the thread. I started this priest because i want to learn how to heal and I really have no idea where to start. I've been dps'ing the last 2 years. I've used shadow to level but want to do disc/holy when i hit 85 as i'd like to do raid heals. Thanks for the starting point:)
You're very welcome :)
Since you're a priest, it'd be best to check out the Priest forum for gearing and healing tips as a priest. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/1012666/
Once you're in the correct gear and are speced properly it'll become easier for you.
Also, you can try practicing in battlegrounds to get a feel for it. Of course, raids and BG's aren't the same thing but in BG's no one will scream at you for panicing and going oom. You can practice using all your abilities to your heart's content.
Any class/race combo would be acceptable; race is mostly about asthetics, while class is about preference. Though you may want to choose a race depending on the racial traits you recieve; you can check out this site to look over the info.: http://www.wowhead.com/races
To choose class; just read the summaries I gave in the first two posts and choose the one that most appeals to you.

Hmm, will see if I can fit them in.
Thanks :) But what you do you mean by report? Because being congratulated on my thread being reported is a bit...
I was looking for Righteous Defense in the MoP ability list, but I don't see it. Are they removing it? Also, this was written earlier about using Divine Shield:
You can't righteous fury + divine shield to tank.
Yes, they've advanced the possibility (again, not beta yet) that they'll remove tank AoE taunts. No guarantee though and RD has never been a true AoE taunt, like Challenging Shout/Roar. DKs still only have two single target taunts (Dark Command, Death Grip). So it's a bit too early to say anything.
Hmm, I see.
Sarcasm. Just thought it was funny that this thread is highly rated, stickied, and reported.
You can't righteous fury + divine shield to tank.Rather, righteous fury will do nothing.Divine shield drops you off the aggro table; you must taunt (you can do back to back taunt + righteous defense) to keep the boss aggro on you, but thats all you can do.If you don't taunt, you will lose aggro and dps will die.
That's why you use divine shield THEN taunt. Of course you drop all aggro you have when you bubble, doesn't change the fact that you can still taunt.
I would just like to say nice work. It is good to see a thread like this. I raid with all 4 healing classes and it is nice to see such an accurate description of the classes and builds.
You might want to preface this post with some general healing techniques and principles of healing classes. This could be done by highlighting the givens of healing. Such as having a base heal, strong heal, multi-target heal, and class/spec specific heal.
Thank you Kangarooster :).
Also, thank you for the praise Undertowtem, but I can't take it all myself. I got a lot of suggestions on how to fine tune the information I took from Nomahska of Shu'halo's previous post.
I will consider the suggestions you made. I wanted to make things concise so that I could leave all the information in the first two posts, but I have two more reserved about four posts down that I could use.
Updates will take me some time, I may not get to it 'till this weekend.
