There should be plate boa's with intellect on it.

There should be free bacon and beignets at the DMV for when you have to wait in line, but there isn't.

Don't be defeatist. There should be plate heirlooms with intellect.

the thing that baffles me the most is why there are no shield and no relic boa's

The whole point of heirlooms is to make the leveling of alts faster. I don't think they need to give us heirlooms for every slot. Just enough to give all classes (and specs) equal access to them. There should be plate with intellect, because any leveling as a holy paladin is at a disadvantage to other classes and specs. My resto shaman has them; so should anyone leveling a paladin.

I think the lack of Intel plate heirloom is probably because nobody can use them before lvl 40 when heirlooms were introduced in Wrath, and armor specialization didn't exist in Wrath. I recall our holy pally wearing cloth skirts as the BiS.

Obviously, when they introduced heirloom in Wrath, they didn't foresee Armor Specialization in Cata. With the same logic, I don't know how classes are going to be in MoP. Because of the new fixed mana pool, maybe we should have plate with Spirit/Haste/Mastery, etc. Who knows?

the reason i'm baffled about those is the fact theirs a bow there.....I know a bow is a hunters focused weapon but the same goes to a paladin sheild.Also theirs only one piece of plate int gear x.x which you have to get hp for and i frankly hate pvping with my hunter too many buttons not enough reaction time.

Plate heirlooms will downgrade to mail automagically until you get to level 40 when they'll revert to plate.

Always only buy the heirlooms that you can wear after 40 because of this automagic downgrade system. Just FYI.

Okay.

Dont get so confused by all of this, i leveled my First Holy paladin or should i say my First Char ( original ) with No BOA at all.
I find that your gear is Fine or in fact perfect for your leveling.

holy light should be your emergency heal. Never ever touch FoL


This is kinda wrong for not being level 85.
In your case , do anything best to keep everyone up full , Always beacon tank, and keep Holy Shock on CD , most of the time i heal a dps and the tank will get the heal from beacon and i will get the heal from my talent tree.
Dont be afraid to use FOL since Holy Light is super slow , FOL should be you emergency heal not Holy Light.

Use Divine Plea ! its just a 2 mins CD

Go RBG's from time to time for fun and exp :)

Good Luck and Have fun!

Hehe, right now i'm stacking honor so that way when i'm level 70 i can pop into the pvp armor( stacking enough to actually get both tanking and heal sets)

I'm doing this because a friend said that these peices of armor will outlast boa's till level 78 so i could probably go from pvp 70 armor to green cata's at that time.

He has mana problems. FoL causes mana problems.

I can tell you from personal experience, I never touched FoL while leveling my holy paladin, and I leveled her in instances, healing. With HSs and WoGs that fill a third of the tank's health bar, and HLs that fill almost the entire health bar, FoL is overkill. Be proactive, and precast HLs when you need to, but the tank should never be taking enough damage that FoL is necessary.

yes it does but when you have Divine Plea it doesn't matter , and like i said he/she is still not 85 so it doesn't really matter.

Just keep targeting a mob and use judgment.

How are you leveling? Dungeons, or questing, or a mixture of both?

If you are doing some questing, then I'd recommend getting a sort of "Shockadin" off-spec. Otherwise, you will have mana issues.

You understand that the OP is coming to us for help with mana problems, right? Telling him "it's cool, you don't actually have mana problems" isn't really helping.

Blackrock Depths? It's actually a really good instance for leveling....IF your group is intelligent enough to understand that CLEARING the place is better than the crappy satchel at the end.

Same goes for Blackrock Spire, both the Upper and Lower wings give amazing XP, but so many people wan't to skip so much that they might as well be Scarlet Monastery all over again....

If its a navigation issue, just remind people of what the M button does....and if that doesn't work, open your map, switch it to the small version, and lead them around by the nose. Make special point to rub the fact you can read and use a map, in their faces....who knows, maybe they will eventually learn...

BRD, UBRS, LBRS, Gnomer, etc.; are ALL some of the BEST instances whilst leveling, at their respective levels, simply because the sheer amount of trash = insane XP intake, especially with heirlooms. Frankly, I recommend people do them often at their repsective levels, because Outland/NR/Cata dungeons cannot compare on the XP bar percentage those dungeons can dish out when fully cleared.

What are you having trouble with in Blackrock?

True, but remember that OL/NR covers 10 levels in the timeframe of 30, and Cata covers 5 in the timeframe of 30. Naturally, the instances will make less of a dent in your XP bar.

True, but by the same virtue, you can get far more level appropriate XP for your time input in BRD/BRS than you can in, say, Nexus or Mana Tombs. That isn't say BRD and such are easier instances, they are just instances designed around having large amounts of trash for the group to work through to reach bosses, and more trash = more XP while leveling.
