Are preists a pain to level?

I have a priest as bank alt and was thinking of leveling her up.

Are they a pain to level?

I'm not big on kiting (as I always seem to kite in the wrong direction and wind up with aggro on an additional six mobs).

No. Especially not these days. You can viably and efficiently level in any spec.

No. Any spec will do fine to lvl30, then you can dual spec shadow and heals and enjoy the leveling. Even at max level, I have no problem soloing daily quests in any spec (holy/disc/shad).

Agreed with Immer. Personally I'd suggest Disc for the early levels. Especially on PvP servers. They are beastly and if someone runs up on you, you can generally heal yourself out of it.

I leveled mine up during CAT as Holy...all the way to 82. I got to the point that stuff wasn't dying and despawing (aka, glop) so I had to go shadow...DPS difference was amazing. UH: I stayed holy that long because I got insta-queues with healing and it FORCED me to go after healing gear. It was my first healer and I knew if I quested as DPS, I'd stop healing.

Leveling from 85 to 90 in shadow was easier than my plate wearers for some reason. Maybe because I prefer ranged DPS so much more...I dunno. But like others have said, go shadow or disc for DPS and disc/holy for healing and you'll level quickly.

I leveled my priest from 85-90 recently in like 3 days...it probably took a total of 16 hours or so if I had to guess.

Shadow or Disc are super easy to level as now.

Go for it.

For the early levels, I suggest Holy smite spec and lots and lots of pots/drinking. It's the best way to go. At 40 (is it 30 now?) do dual spec and play with both.

Leveling Disc is easy and pain free.

I leveled Holy in BC (which was really dumb then).

Every expansion since I have leveled Disc.

My husband leveled shadow and enjoyed it.

Level disc until 30, especially if you are in full BoA's. If you are full BoA geared head to BG's in between quests, you will literally be able to carry your team to victory from levels 10-19. When I leveled my undead priest in cata I was able to top healing, dmg done and HK's in WSG. KB's usually got topped by hunters. Then, near insta queues for dungeons makes it quick to level through the vanilla levels.

I'm level 15 now. Was thinking of getting to 20 this evening and putting down WoW for a while to run though Baldur's gate II for a few weeks.

I found a copy on my shelf, and I haven't played it in so, so long (over 10 years). Created a new character Wednesday night and I've got the urge again. I'm like a kid just waiting to play.

Given my limited gaming time, I think WoW is gonna have to suffer for a while.

BG II: SOA will forever go down in my book as one of the best if not THE best RPG of all time. Hell, game of all time.

BG and the Champions of Norrath games, definitely best console games in my book. Great solo play but undoubtedly the best for multi-play ever made.

I probably shouldn't get my hopes up, but I'm hoping Diablo III on the console could challenge the CoN games on multi-playability.
