Priest Leveling Guide 1-60 for Classic WoW

Check out our priest leveling guide 1-60 for Vanilla / Classic WoW to help you leveling faster. You'll find the best spec, best gear and addons to be the first priest to reach lvl 60!

1. Priest class overview

Posté le 15/04/2019

Priests are efficient, consistent, strong levelers offering one of the smoothest rides to 60 out of all the classes. They are highly desired in groups as they have outstanding healing capabilities, excellent group utility (Buffs, Mind Control, Resurrection), and solid damage.

This is the best healing class for PVE and very good for PvP. You'll make a ton of friends as a priest ;-).

DPS-wise, as shadow you'll be a beast in PvP (but only once you're geared enough) and it will be pretty hard to get a spot in a raid unlike mages or warlocks, so be patient, because the reward is huge!

Priest weaknesses

3. General Tips for leveling as a priest

Here are some tips to progress quickly during your leveling as a priest in Classic WoW.

  • If possible, never cast a heal. Instead, use Power Word: Shield before, and, if necessary, during the fight to avoid taking damage at all. The health regeneration from Spirit Tap should be sufficient.
  • Keep your wand up to date and conserve mana by wanding.
  • Get a ton of Spirit gear! Always prioritize spirit and then intellect !

FINISH them with your wand!

This trick is very important during leveling because the natural regeneration of mana (based on your total spirit) begins 5 seconds after your last spell.

Because of that mechanic, it is better to tank some hits with your HP to finish the mob with a wand (0 mana) and be able to get 2-3 ticks of natural mana regen before attacking the next opponent.

Here is the list of the best wand to get during your leveling.

5. DPS Cycle for leveling as a priest

Find below the best DPS rotation to levelup as fast as possible.

Level 1-10

Always use your shield before each fight, this will allow you to take much less damage, and avoid using mana to heal you.

Level 10-35

Start hitting your target with a Holy Fire and then do the spell rotation as indicated, it is useless to use Holy Fire twice during a fight, except against a boss to renew the dot.

Level 36-60 - Respec Shadow

Once you've reached lvl 36, your XP / hour rate will get crazy! You have to respec full shadow and it will be a pleasure to level up because Mind Flay becomes interesting only at level 36 with its level 3, whose damage per mana (DPM) is much more interesting than Smite’s.

6. Best gear for leveling as a priest

Here is the best stat priority for leveling:

Spirit > Intellect > Stamina

Spirit is the main statistic for priests, mainly because of the Spirit tap talent which gives you 100% more  spirit when you kill an enemy, so the more spirit you have, the faster you can go from mob to mob.

Intelligence is more useful than stamina: You already have a Stamina buff, a shield to protect you from damage and healing spells. So you have to prioritize intellect far more than stamina. For green gear, you need to go for the set « Of the Owl »
