Just had a question for those that have been playing their paragons of light and shadow a bit longer than myself... but... how does disc do for questing? 85-90? Dailies? etc.?
Basically i leveled this priest in cata after not playing one since vanilla. I had tried multiple times over the years to level one up, but could never get "into" the class.
Then i discovered disc. Specifically attonement.
I went 1-85 as disc. I quested as disc. I chain ground dungeons as disc. I dabbled in a couple battlegrounds as disc. I loved disc.
In DS i started dabbling with holy (mostly because having to many people popping weakened soul sucked) and, honestly, i enjoyed it. I smiled as i messed with chakra states etc... but i missed disc... and i went back to it eventually.
I think i mentioned that it took me years to finally level a priest. This isn't my main. This isn't even my "primary alt". At this point i have 5 90's and she's still stuck at 86... but theres a reason for that last one. After seeing how much health mobs had in jade forest etc. i decided to give shadow a try. I swapped my holy offspec to shadow, practiced a bit on a dummy, read some guides etc. and jumped into jade forest questing and even a dungeon or three.
I HATED it.
I have nothing but love to my fellow priests that play shadow like a boss, but for some reason that spec just does NOT click with me. I didn't like it solo'ing. I didn't like it in dungeons. I never even did a bg as it. Just not my thing.
But then it hit me that leveling is very... dps friendly shall we say. And not so much for a healer (especially with the relative crap exp you get in dungeons at this level). And i shelved my girl here up until this point.
Now i'm thinking of playing her again. I have some 450 BoA's i can swap to her (450 weapon, 463 offhand) and plenty of gold to buy her anything i choose. But the thought of going shadow turns me away from the class.
Now, i know i could choke down the 85-90 grind as anything, but i'm concerned with dailies. Isle of thunder mobs have upwards of 700k hp and i'm not sure i want to spend 3 minutes killing them each time. But then again... i've never seen a disc priest grinding at 470+ ilvl so i don't honestly know how good it is.
So i come to the forum asking advice from any other priests that go disc all the way. Solo, dunegons, raids (specifically LFR) and pvp. Just getting your Disc on and loving it.
How well does that work for you?
TL;DR: Want to level my priest but hate shadow. Also want to be able to do dailies reasonably at 90. Am i screwed? Does it work fairly well? Any specific advice or anything? :P
ty all for any replies :)
