That Disc spec is fantastic for questing! My priest was holy (or holy/disc hybrid while levelling) till 80 and dualspec got added, but has used Disc for questing ever since, and it's really in a very nice place right now. Glyph Smite (20% more damage on targets afflicted by holy fire) and Spirit Tap (for nice regen), and you're fine levelling. Gets a bit hairy when you're lowgeared in the 80s and get swarmed by hardhitting respawns, but even then you've got shadowfiend as an extra cooldown, and at lower lvls it's fine for all questing, and perfectly adequate for dungeoning - I keep meaning to try some 85 dungeons in it and see what Atonement healing works like, but I'm so in the habit of Holy healing that I don't really want to screw up and cause a wipe!One suggestion I'd make to that build though; only really reachable at high lvls but take 1 point in Twisted Faith - that one little talent point means your healing gear (assuming you've got spirit on it) will have more than enough hitchance that you never miss anything lower lvl than a boss. Meaning questing gets that little bit easier without missing spells all the time (or having to keep a dps set of gear with spellhit on it). It's a shame you can't hybridise specs any more to get talents like that while levelling; as things are, it'll be your lvl 81 or lvl 84 talent point.

The glyph of Divine Accuracy (http://www.wowhead.com/item=45758) already does that for HF and Smite, though - and at level 25 ;)

True but I like having *every* spell at 100% hitchance - no use fearing an add to keep it quiet while I finish off its friend if fear misses! Shadow word death missing also means no spirit tap... ;-)Oh yeah and glyph of Psychic Scream is fantastic for levelling, btw - nothing like being able to use fear whenever I like without risk of getting more adds!
