Rotations

Welcome, aspiring priests, to the wondrous world of leveling! Fear not, for I am here to guide you through the early stages of your divine journey. Grab your holy water and get ready to smite your enemies with style, wit, and a sprinkle of mana management. Let's dive into the spells and strategies that will carry you from level 1 to 43!

Level 1-9: Baby Steps of Smiting Glory

  1. Cast smite. Simple and straightforward, my friends. Embrace the power of smite and rain down holy damage upon your foes. After training rank 2 at level 6, keep rank 1 handy on your action bar. It'll come to your aid when your mana is running low or when you want to avoid unnecessary overkill damage. Efficient and practical—just like a priest should be.

Smite Smite Smite

Level 10-19: The Mindful Mage of the Cloth

In this stage of your leveling adventure, we must tread carefully. Smite takes on an optional status, as its casting time of 2.5 seconds and increased mana cost per encounter require a moment of contemplation. Assess your current mana levels before unleashing its divine wrath. Remember, dear priests, that Spirit Tap has reduced effectiveness while casting.

Power Word: Shield Smite (if mana permits) Mind Blast Shoot wand

Level 20-43: Unleashing the Holy Fire...or Not?

Ah, the mysteries of the holy fire await you, my comrades. But beware, for its casting time of 3.5 seconds (or 3 seconds with 5/5 Righteous Fury) demands careful consideration. Yes, it's marked as optional, for you must balance its power with the efficiency of your Spirit Tap. Choose wisely, young priests, as you continue to shape your leveling path.

Power Word: Shield Holy Fire (if time and mana allow) Mind Blast Shadow Word: Pain Shoot wand

And there you have it, my budding priests! These spell rotations shall carry you through the early stages of your adventure. Smiting, shielding, and managing your mana like a true cleric extraordinaire. Remember, each level brings new challenges and opportunities for growth. Stay vigilant, stay holy, and keep your wand ready for those special moments of divine punishment!

Join me next time as we unveil the secrets of leveling beyond 43, where even greater powers and spells await your divine touch. Until then, my fellow priests, may your smites be mighty, your shields unbreakable, and your holy fire...well, optional!

In this chapter, we shall delve deeper into the art of spell sequencing, where the delicate balance of mana consumption and kill speed awaits.

Sequencing 101: Mind Over Mana

Now, dear disciples of the cloth, let us explore the realm of optional spell casts. These additional Smite and Mind Blast spells can amp up your kill speed but come at the cost of precious mana. As we priests are no strangers to resource management, it is crucial to assess your current mana level and regen rate before busting out these moves. Choose wisely and let the mana gods guide your decisions!

Power Word: Shield Holy Fire Mind Blast Shadow Word: Pain Smite (Optional) Mind Blast (Optional) Shoot wand

Picture this: you shield yourself with the protective might of Power Word, creating an impenetrable force field of divine defense. With the stage set, you unleash the fiery fury of Holy Fire upon your unsuspecting foes, followed by a mind-blowing Mind Blast that leaves them questioning their life choices.

But wait, there's more! You weave the intricate tapestry of Shadow Word: Pain, spreading the torment like a contagious dance move on the battlefield. Should you choose to indulge your thirst for maximum kill speed, a spicy serving of additional Smite and Mind Blast spells awaits, with cautionary notes on mana consumption. The choice is yours, O holy maestro!

And as the grand finale to this divine performance, you resort to the rhythmic swaying of your wand, a melodic symphony of pew-pews that adds a touch of elegance to the chaos. The crowd goes wild, the monsters tremble, and you, my friend, are the star of this celestial disco.

Sequencing 101: Mana Management with Mind Melodies

In this chapter of our mystical symphony, we shall explore the art of optional spell casts. Prepare to embrace the sweet harmony of Mind Flay and the mind-blowing beats of Mind Blast. But beware, my fellow shadow dancers, for with great power comes great mana consumption. It is essential to heed the call of your current mana level and regen rate before unleashing these potent moves. Find the rhythm that suits your mystical needs!

Power Word: Shield Holy Fire Mind Blast Shadow Word: Pain Mind Flay (Optional) Mind Blast (Optional) Shoot wand

Imagine this enchanting scene: you shield yourself with the impenetrable fortress of Power Word, ensuring your safety on the cosmic dance floor. As the stage is set, you ignite the fiery passion of Holy Fire, engulfing your foes in flames of torment.

As you revel in the rhythm of your shadowy symphony, remember to stay attuned to the ebb and flow of mana. Your choices shape the dance, and finding the delicate balance between power and conservation is key. Trust your instincts, gauge your mana reserves, and let the cosmic beats guide your spellcasting steps.

Stay tuned for the next captivating chapter, where we ascend to higher levels of mastery and uncover even more mind-altering spells. Until then, my mystical maestros, keep grooving, keep casting, and may your mana pool never run dry on this extraordinary dance of shadows!

The Art of Multi-Pulling: Fear, Foes, and Fantastic Escapes

Welcome, daring disciples of the shadows! Today, we delve into the thrilling world of multi-pulls, where the art of fear and finesse intertwine. Brace yourselves for an adventure that will test your mettle, your strategy, and your ability to dance with danger. Let the shadows guide you!

Unleashing the Fear: Psychic Scream's Multi-Pull Potential

Once a Priest reaches the hallowed halls of level 14, a powerful spell known as Psychic Scream enters their arsenal. This spell holds the key to unlocking the exhilarating realm of multi-pulls. Picture this: a brave Priest fearlessly pulling a group of enemies, not just one or two, but a whole pack! The number of foes that can be fearfully embraced depends on the Priest's Psychic Scream fear cap.

Here's the lowdown: The Priest can fear up to a number of mobs equal to their Psychic Scream fear cap plus one, with a maximum of five mobs at a time. For instance, at level 14, when the Priest first obtains Psychic Scream Rank 1 with a fear cap of 2 targets, they can boldly pull up to 3 mobs at once. It's like herding wayward sheep, but with more chaos and impending danger!

Mastering the Multi-Pull: Three Essential Elements

Before venturing into the realm of multi-pulls, wise Priests must heed the three sacred principles of success:

  1. Exit Strategy: Just like a grand heist, a successful multi-pull requires a clear escape plan. Ensure there's a path to safety, lest you find yourself trapped in a vortex of shadowy doom. Remember, disappearing in a puff of smoke is not just for rogues.

  2. Cleared Space: When conducting your fear-infused symphony, make sure the stage is set. Clear the area of potential troublemakers who might inadvertently join the party. You don't want uninvited guests gatecrashing your meticulously planned performance!

  3. Resources at the Ready: Multi-pulls demand more than raw courage. Check your mana reserves, your health bar, and your inventory of consumables. Prepare for the long haul, for battles of grand magnitude require stamina, focus, and perhaps a stash of delicious pastries for that extra boost.

The Dance of Shadows: Mind Flay and the Art of Selective Fear

Ah, here's a delightful trick for the seasoned practitioners of the shadow arts. With clever use of Mind Flay, it is possible to manipulate Psychic Scream's fearsome nature. Imagine this: an entire group of enemies, trembling in fear, their eyes wide with terror...except for one. With a deft touch and a cunning mind, a Priest can strategically spare a specific target from the clutches of fear. It's like being the puppet master of fear itself, pulling the strings to your advantage.

So, my intrepid shadow dancers, embrace the power of multi-pulls with caution and courage. Let your Psychic Scream echo through the halls of darkness, and watch as your enemies cower before your might. Remember, a successful multi-pull requires careful planning, quick reflexes, and a dash of audacity.

Go forth, fearless Priests, and may the shadows guide you on this thrilling journey of multi-pulling mastery. Unleash your fearsome spells, savor the chaos, and dance your way to victory!

The Magnificent Multi-Pull Performance: Dance of Destruction

Ladies and gentlemen, gather 'round and witness the mesmerizing spectacle of the multi-pull rotation! We shall embark on a daring adventure, juggling multiple foes like circus performers on a tightrope. Prepare to be amazed as we navigate the kill order with finesse and a touch of mayhem. Let's break it down step by step, shall we?

Introducing our Stars: Skull, Cross, Square, Triangle, and Diamond

In this grand production, each target in the kill order has a name, a symbol, and a destiny. Behold the cast of characters:

  • Skull: The grand protagonist, the first target in our kill order. The star of the show, if you will.

  5. Strafe Away: Time to show off our nimble footwork. Strafe away, avoiding their grasp and maintaining our distance.

  6. Shadow Word: Pain Cross Square Triangle Diamond: With swift precision, we cast our wicked words upon the remaining targets. Cross, Square, Triangle, and Diamond, you're all marked for doom!

  7. Mind Flay Skull: Embracing the dance of shadows, we channel our energy into Skull, siphoning their very essence. It's like a creepy, yet oddly satisfying, embrace.

  8. Psychic Scream (While Strafing Away) Cross Square Triangle Diamond: Ah, the moment of chaos! We unleash the piercing scream, sending Cross, Square, Triangle, and Diamond into a frenzy of fear. Keep strafing, my friends, keep strafing!

  9. Mind Blast Skull: Just when Skull thought they were safe, we hit them with another mind-blowing blast. Surprise!

  10. Mind Flay Skull: We return to our dark dance partner, Skull, swirling in a whirlwind of shadowy energy. Can you feel the goosebumps?

  11. Strafe Away and Repeat: Like a never-ending performance, we repeat the sequence, strafing away to safety and unleashing Psychic Scream as needed. The show must go on!

  12. Shadow Word: Pain (As Needed) Cross Square Triangle Diamond: Should any of our targets dare to survive, we reapply our dark whispers to ensure their demise. No escape, Cross, Square, Triangle, or Diamond!

  13. Power Word: Shield: A momentary respite, a shield to fortify our strength as the performance intensifies.

  14. Mind Blast Cross: Cross takes the spotlight once again as we deliver a mind-shattering blast. Take a bow, Cross!

  15. Shoot Wand Cross: And now, a little interlude with our trusty wand. Pew pew! A taste of ranged weaponry to keep Cross on their toes.

And thus, dear audience, the performance continues in a mesmerizing cycle of destruction. We dance with shadows, strafe with grace, and unleash spells with a touch of flair. With each repetition, our enemies tremble, and our victory draws near.

Witness the Multi-Pull Rotation, an intricate masterpiece of chaos and calculated moves. Let it guide you through the realm of multiple foes, where skill, timing, and a touch of showmanship lead to triumph. Now, my fellow performers, go forth and conquer with style!

Professions

Ah, professions, those little endeavors that can bring both joy and headaches to our priestly souls. While professions may not be an absolute necessity for our cloth-clad healers, there are a couple of options that can add a sprinkle of convenience, survival, and even a touch of mischief to our adventures. Let's explore the possibilities, shall we?

Alchemy: Brewing Potions and Embracing Time

Ah, the art of alchemy! It may not be your typical priestly pursuit, but it can certainly offer some enticing benefits. The shining star of Alchemy for priests is the mana potion. Yes, those magical elixirs that can instantly replenish our precious mana reserves. And when you gain access to the glorious Superior Mana Potions, leveling becomes a breeze. Chug those potions like there's no tomorrow!

But wait, there's more! The Nifty Stop Watch is a nifty little trinket that provides a much-needed burst of mobility. Need to make a swift escape or catch up to a wandering party member? Just activate the stopwatch and zoom away. It's like being a time-traveling priest, minus the fancy DeLorean.

Oh, and let's not forget about Elixirs. Grab yourself some Elixir of Greater Intellect and Troll's Blood Elixirs to give your stats a little boost and reduce pesky downtime. Who says priests can't dabble in the elixir business?

And if you're the foresighted type, Free Action Potions can be a true lifesaver. Stuck in a tricky situation? Just pop one of those babies and dance your way out of trouble. It's like a temporary shield against the woes of crowd control.

Engineering: Gadgets, Explosions, and a Dash of Insanity

Now, here's where things get a bit... explosive. Engineering, my dear priests, is where you embrace your inner tinkerer and let the mayhem unfold. What can Engineering offer us? Oh, just a few things:

Grenades, my friends! These delightful little devices provide us with much-needed crowd control and a way to interrupt our enemies' plans. Toss a grenade into the mix, watch the chaos ensue, and enjoy the show as your foes scramble to regain their composure.

But wait, there's more! The wonders of Engineering extend to the art of distraction. Ever wanted a safe getaway when things get a little too hairy? Say hello to the Target Dummy. Toss it out, and your enemies will be none the wiser as you slip away to safety. Alternatively, you can use them as decoy targets in Mind Control multi-pulls. Confuse your enemies, control their minds, and revel in the glorious chaos!

And let's not forget those Gnomish Rocket Boots. Yes, my fellow priests, you can strut your stuff with these handy little contraptions. Need to cover ground quickly? Strap on those boots and zoom across the landscape with a smile on your face. Just be careful not to crash into any unsuspecting party members. Safety first!

So, my fellow priests, while professions may not be the ultimate game-changer for us, they can add a dash of flair, survival, and outright silliness to our journey. Whether you're brewing potions, tossing grenades, or strutting with rocket boots, embrace the quirks that come with your chosen path. And remember, as priests, we're always prepared for the unexpected. Cheers to the adventurers who dare to walk the path less traveled!

Wand Farming

Ah, the thrilling journey of a priest, where quests await, dungeons beckon, and wands... well, wands have a mind of their own. As you venture forth, my fellow adventurers, keep in mind that the levels listed below are mere suggestions, guiding you towards the content you can tackle. But remember, exercise caution and good judgment before diving headfirst into specific quests. Safety first, my friends!

Now, let's talk wands. Ah, those magical instruments of destruction and salvation. But hold your horses! This list doesn't include those wands that drop from dungeon bosses. Oh no, we're talking about the likes of Cookie's Stirring Rod and Noxious Shooter, which have a flair for dropping surprises when you least expect it. And let's not forget about those wands from Dungeon Quests, like the infamous Gravestone Scepter. These elusive wands have a knack for hiding in the depths of dungeons, teasing you with their power.

But here's the thing, my dear priests: you don't need to chase after every single upgrade on the list below. Some of those fancy DPS upgrades may not be worth your time or hard-earned gold. Exercise caution, weigh your options, and choose wisely. It's like a shopping spree where you have to resist the temptation of every shiny item on the rack. Restraint, my friends, restraint!

So, as you embark on your quest for upgrades and weave through the tapestry of levels, remember to keep an eye on the suggested minimums, use your judgment wisely, and don't let those elusive wands drive you insane. After all, it's the journey that matters, not just the destination. May your quests be rewarding, your upgrades be worthy, and your adventures be filled with laughter and epic tales to tell. Onward, brave priests, for the world awaits!

ALLIANCE

Ah, the mystical world of wands! As an Alliance Priest, you have the privilege of wielding these enchanting instruments of destruction. Let's take a whimsical journey through the realms of wand progression, where each level brings you a new wand and a whole lot of damage potential.

Stats

The Priest's Stat Hierarchy: Unveiling the Secrets of Mana and Survival

Ah, the life of a Priest, where your mana pool is your precious lifeline and your healing prowess knows no bounds. As the tank of caster classes, you hold the power to convert mana into health, making you a formidable force on the battlefield. But how should you prioritize your stats to ensure your mana pool remains healthy and your survival is secured? Fear not, for we're about to dive into the intriguing world of Priest stat choices with a touch of humor and a sprinkle of wisdom.

  1. Intellect: The Mana Fountain (Weight: 15 Mana) Intellect takes the crown as the reigning stat of importance for any aspiring Priest. It fuels your mana pool, granting you the precious resource you need to keep your allies standing and your enemies quaking in fear. Remember, the higher your intellect, the more mana you'll have at your disposal. So let the mana flow!

  2. Spirit: The Serene Sustainer (Weight: 0.25 MP5 when not casting) While not as crucial as intellect, Spirit still plays a vital role in maintaining your mana reserves. When you're not busy casting spells, Spirit will gradually replenish your mana through its mystical MP5 (Mana Per 5 Seconds) properties. So, keep an eye on your spirit and find moments of serenity to rejuvenate your magical energies.

  3. MP5: The Steady Stream (Unaffected by casting; does not scale with talents) MP5, the unsung hero of mana sustainability, deserves some recognition. Unlike other stats, MP5 remains unaffected by your spellcasting activities. It provides a steady stream of mana regeneration, keeping your mana pool well-nourished even during intense battles. While it may not scale with talents, it's still a reliable ally to have by your side.

  4. Stamina: The Vitality Booster (+10 Health) As the tank of casters, you can't neglect your own survival. Stamina comes into play here, bolstering your health pool by +10 for each point invested. While not directly tied to mana, a healthy Priest is a formidable one. Plus, let's be honest, staying alive is pretty important, right?

Now, let's address some other stat considerations that may sway your decision-making:

Spell Power and Healing Power: Not Worth the Hype Despite the allure of spell power and healing power, they're not high on the priority list for Priests. Their low coefficients dampen their impact on overall spell performance. While they may seem tempting, it's best to focus your attention elsewhere to optimize your Priestly potential.

Multi-Pulling Mayhem: A Case for Stamina If you find yourself frequently engaging in the daring art of multi-pulling, it might be wise to give Stamina a bit more love. The extra health will serve as a cushion against the onslaught of enemies, ensuring you survive the chaos you unleash. After all, surviving to tell the tale of your multi-pulling escapades is half the fun!

So, my fellow Priests, keep your mana pool in check, prioritize intellect and spirit, and let the mana flow through your fingertips. Remember, a well-balanced Priest is a force to be reckoned with. May your heals be powerful, your mana abundant, and your adventures filled with laughter and triumphant battles. Onward, mighty healers of the realm!

Tips and Tricks

The Priest's Survival Guide: From Cloth Armor to Mind Control Shenanigans

Ah, cloth armor, the epitome of fashion-forward but sadly lacking in the damage mitigation department, especially at lower levels. Fear not, fellow Priests, for I bring you wisdom that will fatten your pockets and quench your thirst for water and shiny new abilities. Consider selling those lackluster gray and white armor pieces as you level up, and embrace the extra funds for your hydration and skill-acquiring endeavors. Who needs armor when you've got style, right?

Now, let's delve into the intricacies of wand attacks. Here's a fun fact: they actually adhere to the global cooldown. What does that mean? Well, while you're basking in the glory of your wand's power, any attacks made against you can cause annoying pushback on your wand attacks. It's like a cosmic game of tug-of-war, but with spells. Just keep that in mind and sway with the pushback, my wand-wielding comrades.

Ah, the notorious "5 Second Rule" of mana regeneration from Spirit. It's like a waiting game, my friends. Your mana will only start regenerating from Spirit five seconds after you've cast your last spell. So, strategize accordingly during combat and take advantage of the Spirit Tap talent between kills. Patience is key, and mana is precious. Embrace the rhythm of the 5 Second Rule!

Let's talk about overkill damage and overhealing. They're like the pesky siblings of mana efficiency. When casting spells, be mindful of how much damage you're dishing out or healing beyond what's actually necessary. We don't want any wasteful spells here. Mana efficiency is our holy grail, the treasure we strive for. So, keep an eye on those numbers and unleash your spells with precision!

Now, my fellow Priests, it's time to unleash the true power of your toolkit. Sure, you've got your healing spells down to a T, but did you know that spells like Mind Soothe, Levitate, Mana Burn, Dispel Magic, Mind Vision, and Mind Control can be your secret weapons? These babies are often overlooked and underestimated. Embrace the chaos and surprise your foes with unexpected maneuvers. Be the Priest of versatility and keep 'em guessing!

Last but not least, let's talk about downranking. No, it's not some fancy dance move, although it could be if you want to add some pizzazz to your gameplay. Downranking your heals and Psychic Scream is a smart move when the situation calls for it. Keep multiple ranks of your heals (excluding Renew) and all ranks of Psychic Scream within easy reach on your action bars. Adaptability is the name of the game, my friends. Stay flexible and be ready to unleash the perfect spell for every occasion.

So, my fellow cloth-clad miracle workers, remember these pearls of wisdom. Sell that lackluster armor, dance with the pushback, master the 5 Second Rule, be efficient with your spells, embrace your full toolkit, and become the downranking diva. May your mana be plentiful, your spells be powerful, and your Priestly adventures be filled with laughter and triumph! Onward, brave healers!
