I started leveling as holy but the problem was that with each level gained my Exorcism cast time increased. That's why I changed my offspec to retribution - you will notice that the quest rewards you choose from always have only one plate item - that means you can always gather retribution and holy gear at the same time. At level 84 it's significantly faster to level up as ret.

While it's true that you'll nearly always get only one plate item, the designers typically do things like throw an AGI axe, a piece of DPS plate, a caster ring, and a tanking necklace all on the same quest.

I tried both Ret and Shockadin for leveling. Ret felt significantly more powerful so if you are trying Shockadin and struggling try Ret. It has been incredibly easy to maintain two gearsets just from quest rewards and drops noone else needs in 5 mans. Seriously, you should never go Heal/Shock dual spec because you think gearing 81-84 is an issue because it has not been at all. But if you enjoy Shockadin more power to you.

My problem isn't with gearing, it's with sacrificing 16 bag slots to carry a second gear set.
