This part I very vividly remember - there I was, standing in Molten Core, in a raid group and without a guild, not knowing what was going on or what the hell just happened. I was pretty shocked at the time, but I was also insanely angry, so the shock had to take a back seat. As I was kicked I wasn't privvy to the guild chat happening at the time so it was pretty stressful - do I leave the group and just go on my way forever? In the end, it was another officer, Rogue and all around good guy Jihan that managed to calm things down and so I was invited back and we continued discussing the issue.
Quest helper addons like Questie are a must have and will make your leveling experience much smoother. Over the years, Blizzard has reworked WoW's questing interface to make it more user friendly and to present more information. In Classic, that was not the case. Quests were not readily displayed on the map, enemies did not have text to indicate you should kill them for a quest you had, and items did not have the glowing lines or sparkles around them to let you know that you should interact with them for a quest.
I made some route changes to the Horde levels 43-44 sections. I have swapped 44 Dustwallow Marsh with 44 Desolace (the entire sections). This allowed me to do Deadmire (at lvl 43 instead of 38) and then go stop at TB to turn in Deadmire + The Black Shield at the same time, then fly quickly to do the Desolace stuff. Doing 44 Desolace is now mandatory because I think its faster with the new routes. This will also make the level 53 grind much shorter. I think these were great changes.
There are many enchants that you can find that will make a huge difference in the damage and longevity of your shadow priest. Optimizing is all about finding a proper balance between regeneration and raw damage, but this also takes into account the options you actually have available to you for each equipment slot. There are a few options for multiple enchants, these usually serve as cheaper and far more accessible alternatives.
While actually hitting with a weapon isn’t important for a caster class like a shadow priest, the passive bonuses you’ll gain from maxing your weapon skill make them worth capping. Shadow priests benefit even less than other casters because two of their main abilities cannot be critical strikes. However, weapon skill does offer important defensive stats in the event you get hit by an add.
With a decent wand, most mobs equal to the priest’s level or lower will die to Shadow Word: Pain and wand damage. However, the DPS of Shadow Word: Pain and a wand combined is usually not enough to beat mana regeneration filling your mana bar, and then the issue of efficiency becomes a lack of DPS. Practice balancing mana-efficiency with DPS by casting Power Word: Shield, Shadow Word: Pain, two Mind Flays, then wand for the rest of the mob’s health. As soon as the mob dies, use Power Word: Shield, and repeat the process on another mob. If doing so consistently does not result in dropping below half mana, continue. Otherwise, cast one fewer Mind Flay each time until the mana bar is hovering around 90% most of the fight.
I now have a Patreon Page where you guys can support me while I work on Vanilla WoW leveling guides every day. I appreciate all of you who support me on there, it means a lot to me right now. Doing this full time is taxing on my financial situation. My goal is to make the best Vanilla WoW leveling guides on the web and the donations keep me going at it healthfully. There is also cool rewards you get in return for donating. Thanks!
When it comes to levelling the Priest Class from 1-60 fast, XP grinding locations is only half the battle. You will need to make sure your weapon does enough DPS so that you can clear these mobs fast enough, it should also be noted that monster should be around your level to make sure to gain the 100% XP Reward. The Level your character should be before you start that specific location will be indicated to left in a Blue Color for Alliance [Lvl 35-39] and the Orange Color for Horde [Lvl 35-39]. The Mobs you are looking for in that specific area names are Bolded [Mob Name].
Don’t ever worry about the armor value or level of gear. The other stats are what are important. The amount of damage reduction gained by focusing on armor values will make little to no impact on leveling at all, and never look at the gear equipped on a character and think it needs to be replaced because it’s “outleveled.” The level of the gear is irrelevant. Vanilla has some terrible items. Level 40 gear can have worse stats than a level 20 item with great stats. Great pieces to look out for are the Dreamweave pieces, the Shadoweave set, Honored PvP reputation gear, and any decent cloth boots, because for whatever reason, good cloth boots are hard to come by.
While consumables certainly aren’t everything, they definitely make a big impact. Without consumables, shadow priests probably would never be invited to raids considering that they’d always be out of mana! If you do your best to stock as many of these consumables as possible, you should never run into mana issues. You’ll also notice that they help your spells pack quite the punch, what’s not to love other than the time and cost to acquire them?
The best profession for druid class is an easy one for horde and here’s why. Since Horde will have to choose the Tauren Race just to roll Druid Class, the Tauren Racial Trait provides them with 5+ Herbalism Skill. If you are not sure why this is good you can visit our Herbalism Guide below to learn more. You could also choose Leatherworking and Skinning if you can’t stand picking herbs and making potions since with leatherworking you can make some useful gear for this class.
