I've been leveling a shockadin through questing and DPSing in dungeon queues. It's served me pretty well, the damage isn't bad considering my gear isn't very good but still far behind my equally-leveled mage and DK. The one thing that would make it a truly viable DPS spec in my view is simple - take Inquisition off the GCD.

Ret could really use Inquisition getting some kind of buff as well. As it is, Inqui isn't worth using unless Hammer of Wrath is also getting used - so only during wings or the last 20%. During a normal rotation, the buff to Exorcism and Holy Wrath simply doesn't overcome the loss of a TV (unless you get pretty lucky with Art of War procs).But yeah, let's fix Ret before we worry about making the shockadin viable.

I also have been having a blast leveling my main in holy spec. I have been cheating a lot and just relying on Excorcism. Not paying much attention to holy power unless I am getting over mobbed. WIth the quest greens I have exorcism around 1.22 seconds. I also have the Caster JC trinket which gives around 258 intelligence. Once I hit 83 though I switched over to protection spec just to see where I was at and came up with 73k health self buffed. I will be starting Uldum tonight questing and mining away :) I have as much fun healing and buffing passing players than I do spamming Exorcism and rolling over mobs. I hope they don't hit us too hard with the nerf bat but at this rate I wouldn't be surprised.
