I just made a priest and for some reason it is not showing up. Anyways she is a Holy Priest and I was curious what stats I should be going for? I am new to healing and I really don't know what to chose? Thanks in advance! :D

You want both Intellect AND Spirit. At low levels, there aren't a lot of items with Spirit on them, however. So try to get items that have Intellect, and if possible, intellect and Spirit. Don't take items that are pure Spirit, however. It's really not worth it.

As Tiriel said, low level items you don't have that much choice. It'll be more of take what you can and just try to save mana in as many places you can get away from if you have a chain pulling tank :)

Holy priests use a ton of mana. Look for gear that is intellect, spirit, mastery. Those are the best three stats you can get for holy.

Eventually, you will need to strike a balance between stats on your gear that maximizes your int+other secondary stats with enough spirit to have regen that gives you enough throughput to last the entire fight. This being said, at your level just go for the next upgrade regardless if its more int or spirit. At low levels, you don't have to worry so much about this balance. You will see more base increase to your healing and dps, for questing, if you go for the int upgrade even if you lose spirit.

sub ~30 you really don't need spirit at all, just focus on int
crit and haste are great too (as you'll likely be solo till 15 anyway) but there's not a lot of it around.
I only really start to run oom when I jump around spamming holy nova for long stretches

At low levels, you'll have a hard time draining your mana. Additionally, if you are leveling through dungeon crawling, you'll be going through gear so fast it won't even matter.
