Nov 17th 2008 9:21AM Sorry, but you need neither Holy Focus nor Blessed Recovery for solo levelling or instancing, and IDS provides more benefit than PI.
This is a better 30/28/3 levelling build (shift back to Holy Reach from Improved Healing if you prefer): www.wowhead.com/?talent=bVcbkhxdrhZcxtzcbqbZh

Now that's *THE* roundup!
Nov 9th 2008 4:36PM The truth is that LOLSmite (aka Disc/Holy DPS) is as good solo leveller in the current game as the SPriest, and has less mana issues.
Sep 22nd 2008 3:48PM I started my priest a little less than a month ago, after levelling and abandoning lock after a few weeks of a playtime. I am now level 47, Disc/Holy (otherwise known as LOLSmite ;), playing Forsaken/Horde a couple of hours a day. I mostly solo, but ocasionally instance to get myself trained for the end-game objective of raid healing.
• Best *free* levelling guide is: http://allonblack.org/WoW/Braxis/. Use that together with QuestHelper, QuestGuru and LightHeaded.
• If you don't know want to play cookie cutter (like me), a good Disc/Holy build is here: www.wowwiki.com/Priest_builds#PvE_.22Discipline.22_Leveling_to_70_Alternative, though you need I wouldn't spend more more than 4 points in Shadow (for 80% Spirit Tap).
• Spend time customising your UI/creating macro lists for grinding/group healing. Worth 100% of time invested.
• Invest in the best wand available for your level. Open with Holy Fire, SW:P, Smite, and wand mobs to death.
Good luck :)
