I have to decide on what I want to do with my little gnome priest when I pop on this weekend. I know questing is the absolute fastest way to level. I've proved it many times. It is even faster then having someone drag you through dungeons and doing all the work for you.
I could continue with the questing and if I do I will do it as disc. My priests heal, no shadow for me. I am a gamer purist and believe that priests should heal and warrior should tank. As such, my warriors always level prot and my priests always level disc. At least both make for quite effective leveling specs. Don't let anyone fool you, a disc priest is a leveling machine and is without doubt the best healing spec of any class when it comes to questing as a healer.
I could do dungeons. I don't think I've ever healed 80% of the dungeons at lower levels. I am not even sure there would be much healing needed. I guess that would work with disc priest as well. Atonement healing will basically allow me to DPS my way through dungeons as a healer and will most likely out DPS most people speced as damage. Not like DPS in low level dungeons matter. Then again, tank and healers in low level dungeons really don't matter all that much either. I don't think it is until level 40 or so that spec actually starts to make even the slightest of difference.
I might dabble in some dungeons just for the fun of it. It will also help me get some gear which is something I lack not having any BoA gear on this character of course. This alone makes the idea of running a dungeon here and there a good idea.
I could go the PvP route. While it is not a solid leveling opportunity like it was when I leveled a priest back when they had the daily battleground it is still some experience and it can still be fun. Low level disc priests are hell on others in battlegrounds and even if I am lacking gear on that character I do have a buttload of experience as a priest in battlegrounds having leveled 2 priests nearly entirely through PvP.
I've also now passed the twink bracket being I am 21 and won't have to run into people with trial accounts only that are made to be level 20 PvP gods.
Speaking of trial account PvP gods I am thinking of making a trail account to do just the same. I could twink myself out nicely. Not sure what class or spec I would do but I must say a disc priest is pretty sweet at that level when your shield is more then your life total to begin with. It means people have to kill you twice in less then 15 seconds to kill you otherwise you will be back up to full and shielded to force them to have to kill you twice again. The joys of disc at low levels.
When you have 300 life and put a 600 shield on yourself, now that is awesome. If only my 130K life priest could put 260K shields on herself I would be the mother of all healers.
I think I will play around some. Something I have not done in a while. I'll not stress the leveling and start to just dabble in everything. That is the joy of being on a new server with no mains. There is no one I have to catch up to. Sad part is, I will probably still be 85 in less then 4 days played even if I dilly dally around.
I wish leveling took longer, leveling is (was) so much fun.
