I am a level 30 Shadow Specd priest on a PvP server, and I was wondering where a good place to quest for the next few lvls is. I did hillsbrad and 1k needles and stonleton, some people suggested desolace, but is there a good grind location there for my level? As the place in kinda lame, no trees <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">.<br><br>
Lastly if I spec holy can I still kill things in a reasonable amount of time? or will i suck at damage?<br><br>
PS. Stv sucks dont wanna go there lol

Shadow priest are great pvpers but aren't so hot at PVE. If you were to respec your dmg would drop. However, you could party with say a mage and the speed at which your lvling should double if not more. Priest are more of a support class. Keep that in mind when trying to lvl to 60. At 60 if you feel like pvping go Shadow and have fun I suppose.<br><br>
You've already been to the places I would have recommend to lvl. Oh wait I noticed you didn't mention STV? Go there. As for desolace. It's so far out of the way of everything else I can't recommand going there. It's well.. desolace lol.

</div>get too ~32-33 and go to Desolace until late 30's <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /> If you have friends your lvling with, it would probably not be a bad idea to go holy, but if your solo, holy is a gonna be worse then shadow for soloing

It's not necessarily the fastest, but you could go holy and then just do scarlet monastery a bunch of times. It's pretty fun and since you would be a holy priest you could get groups really easily. Cool drops also. <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> I would rather have fun and never get to 60 than get to 60 and have not had any fun.

You don't have to be Holy spec to heal. I know several Shadow Priests that can main heal UBRS/SCHOLO/STRAT. The secret is don't be the noob priest who is trying to DPS. I hate this so much when I'm on my alts. It goes a little like this:<br><br>
Me - Doing around 350 dmg a hit on my Mage<br>
Nooby - Doing around 100 dmg per Holy Fire on his Priest<br>
Nooby: LOL OMG 150 Crit!!!<br>
Me: Warrior just died<br>
Nooby: OOM!!<br>
Me: Dammit.<br>

It sounds like your horde. You could also try Arathi Highlands when you get to your mid-30s, but lots of alliance are usually there.

I dont understand why people say the Shadow Priests suck for PvE and take longer then Holy to level. In fact I think its the opposite. Being able to heal myself while grinding is NOT a problem at all therefore Holy is pretty much useless. What sucks is running out of mana and I dont know about you guys but with my shadow priest and the gear I have its almost like a bottomless mana pit. Plus if I DO run outta mana there is always the loveley Spirit Tap <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Go Shadow. Shadow Priests are THE best class in the game, period. Specially Undead ones b/c of the racial ability.

And I love having our (well....was ours...guild broke up) shadow preist in our grp because he has abilities that heal the whole group like constantly as he does dmg...and when hes in the top 10 (which he ALWAYS is...top 5 usually)...it just less healing for the healers to do.<br><br>
Come BC....I am re-rolling horde preist....I want to be a BE but I can't remember if preists can be BE's. If they can't, UD FTW!

Dude, go undead if you go priest. I'm telling you their racial ability ROCKS with the rest of the shadow build.<br />
<br />
Cant remember the name (thats terrible im tired) But its a DOT spell that heals you for the same ammount of damage that it deals out. Now think about that for a second. You allready have several DOT spells. Now throw in the racial one that does DOT and heals and you have one amazing priest.

Vampiric Embrace returns a percentage of all shadow damage as heals (excluding wand dmg.)<br />
<br />
And yeah, if you want to put out some dmg then shadow priest is the way to go.

Because holy can level a lot faster in a team and a team isn't hard to find if your on a normal to high population server. <br />
<br />
Most of my groups aren't A rated groups.<br />
<br />
" You don't have to be Holy spec to heal. I know several Shadow Priests that can main heal UBRS/SCHOLO/STRAT. The secret is don't be the noob priest who is trying to DPS. I hate this so much when I'm on my alts. It goes a little like this:"<br />
<br />
If your like me and you want to get through the instant fast without much downtime. You will learn that a shadow priest will run out of mana way to fast even when they aren't dpsing. Try a Strat run in under 45 minutes with a shadow priest. Possible yes, but not something I feel like dealing with. Just a simple question, are you shadow? "yes", /kick and replace.<br />
<br />
Yes, shadow priest do get into some groups. But a lot of people are like me and you will find yourself getting kicked quite often the second you say your shadow.<br />
<br />
" And I love having our (well....was ours...guild broke up) shadow preist in our grp because he has abilities that heal the whole group like constantly as he does dmg...and when hes in the top 10 (which he ALWAYS is...top 5 usually)...it just less healing for the healers to do."<br />
<br />
Seen that as well. That is when we started looking at the holy priest more closely and noticed a lot of them were slacking off during raids. After replacing a lot of priest the shadow priest notice their healing was suffering so they started heading towards the back of the line on raid spots.<br />
<br />
It's kind of like an pvp rogue vrs a pve combat rogue. They both do good dmg yes. But the combat rogue should be doing more dmg. If he isn't then there is a problem.

ROFL well of course it's faster to level in a group!! No matter what spec you are. If you don't constantly have a group however Shadow offers more DMG and less down time.

Yeah, I dont have to much of a problem running out of mana. At least after a few instance runs and I got some nice equipment and good spirit buffs.<br><br>
I'm just saying I still disgree a shadow priests owns a holy priest anyday. And an Undead one there is no question who will win. Vamperic Embrace is only ONE of the DOT's that heal you modki, with an Undead Priest you get a racial only ability that does something bvery similar to vampiric embrace. Combine those and you've got someone that will fairly lose <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
