Priest VS Outlands: Leveling Guide 58 to 68

Leveling these days isn’t really hard, but can still be fairly time consuming. If you’re like me, then you want to get through the boring grind as quick as possible and get to the max level.

Today we’re going to discuss the best way to level a priest through Outlands (Level 58-68). We’ll focus on the pros and cons of questing versus running dungeons, as well as recommended spec, what gear to use and rotations you’re going to want to be using at this point in the game.

In this guide we’re going to discuss your main two options: Shadow (Pure DPS) or Holy (Heals). Though Discipline is an option, at this level gap it falls short to Holy and takes more time to progress. Which one you choose is up to you, and we’ll discuss them both in this topic. Join us after the jump for the full article.

Resto Druid VS Basics: Need To Know

Resto Druids are amazingly fun to play end-game. They have many aspects that separate them from other healing classes and give them a play style all their own. You’ll either love it, or hate it; There is no in between.

Today I’m going to give you a quick run down of the basics for resto druids as of Cataclysm patch 4.2+. You’ll notice I’m skipping a lot of the little stuff, and focusing more on the parts that end up being more complicated. If you have any questions feel free to ask them in the comments.

Why play Resto?

The biggest difference between druids and most other healing classes is that a good chunk of the druid healing spells are Heal-over-Time (HoT). What this means is that the person doesn’t get healed as soon as the spell is done casting, it will deliver the healing over a period of time instead. The bad news about this is that we’re not designed to be the saving throw at the last minute. However, the good news is that we can plan ahead to put the HoT up and not need to worry about it. Set it and Forget it as the saying goes.

This makes it play like a chess game where you always need to be thinking 2 moves ahead. We can mastermind the fight from start to finish, and the tanks will never know.
