Spiritual Guidance: 3 Priest specs your raid should not leave Shattrath without


Every Sunday, Spiritual Guidance will offer practical insight for priests of the holy profession. Your host is Matt Low, the overlord of World of Matticus, and this week he takes a look at 3 different raid specs for the new priest to consider.

A priest by nature is a class that serves to heal. Unless you walk the path of shadow, then you play a class devoted to healing your raid. Far be it from me to tell me how you should spec or what you should spec. I believe that everyone is free to invest their points down whatever talent tree they see fit. On the other side of the coin, I have been called upon to counsel my raid leaders. In a raid group where 24 of 25 spots have been filled and the last vacancy is reserved for a healer, raid leaders often make the tough call of deciding who gets benched and who gets on the starting roster.

I'm going to go out on a limb and do something no blogger should ever do.

Spiritual Guidance: Thirteen dos and don'ts of a raiding holy priest


Our Priest column is back! Every Sunday, Spiritual Guidance will offer practical insight for priests of the holy profession. Your host is now Matt Low, the grand poobah of World of Matticus, and this week he has compiled a list that raiding holy priests may find beneficial whether they consider themselves new or veterans.

I've raided for a long time on my priest. My first real raid started with Zul'Gurub before I graduated to Molten Core and Blackwing Lair. Unfortunately, I started late in the game to the point where I never really appreciated AQ 40 or Naxxramas. Years later, I am now working my way towards Illidan after mopping the floor with Archimonde. It's difficult for a holy priest to begin raiding. The learning curve can be steep at times because there are so many options available.

That being said, there are a few lessons I've learned from raiding that have proven universal. They had as much application back then as they do now and I wanted to pass them on to any new budding raid priests.

Check out all thirteen tips, from reagents to situation awareness, right after the break.
