Hey guys, I'm working on my priest (Aneste) and building her up as Holy. Looking around online though I don't know what sites to use/trust for info on talent building, stategy, etc. Elitest jerks had kind of an outdated guide and I didn't know if I should use that or not. PLEASE let me know if any of you have a site you use for Priests or even have a priest that I could look at your talent build for ideas.
Much Love

holy is great in conjunction with your chakra, normally i would say go with but the info it has i dont really use, the aoe heals are spot on, but the single target stuff i dont follow...

still as for talent specs i would say look at the popular builds listed on this page and try to find one that works for you, dont be afraid to respec a few times if you find something else works better for you

defiantly learn the way you want to play it, holy is a very diverse spec not like disc where you c an just spam 3 different spells and be fine lol

i just looked at aliena's guide from 4.0.3 on tankspot some of the information there is useful but the talent specs are pretty meh imo might be worth checking out

remember to learn for yourself, i got alot of good information from online and from livewell and bloodyheals but in the end i only learned what worked for me by trying and failing a few times

The hardest thing I've learned about priest healing is that there really is no "right" way. There's a correct spec, and gear, and glyphs, but when it comes to rotation, there really isn't one. Just go do random dungeons; if they boot you, who cares - it's not like you'll ever see those random people again, lol. But don't be afraid of doing it wrong - as long as no one's dying, you're doing it right, lol. Mana management was the hardest thing for me to learn, but my priest was my first caster toon after rolling a lot of melee.

Noxxic, as roofiuz said, is great, and anything Tankspot puts out is solid advice.

Are you using any addons? If you're not using a heals addon yet, let me suggest VuhDo. It's complicated looking, but easy to figure out if you just play with it. Even though VuhDo has decursing built into it, I also use Decursive just to simplify the dispel/cure disease process.

Good luck - if you ever have questions in game, my priest's name is Codéx. Feel free to send me a tell or a mail on either that toon or my main, Cydnee. :D

I would suggest getting a spec from one of our core raid healers that are Holy spec. They can probably help you the most, with a rotation too if you ask nice enough ;P but I can probably help you myself when 4.3 comes out, I've been on the ptr a lot and I did a Holy Priest just for teh lulz.

Nice, thanks gray :) I switched her over to Disc actually though, I was having too many issues going oom as holy. From what I've read, its supposedly better once I'm a higher level and can put talent points in the other trees to help with mana if I do holy, so I may try again once I get her up around lvl 70 or 80. She's at 40 now, with 4 boa's on so hopefully it won't take long =)
