Heilerin is at 51 now. I respecced her back to disc/holy after realizing that there is no place for shadow priests in ST + BRD pugs. They need healers. Lots of healers. :-0
I think the next instance dry-spot I will hit at around 53-54, then I will go back to shadow until I hit 58 and start healing Outland instances.
I realized that you need to be flexible when you play a priest…
She will be a healer once she hits 70. I have yet to decide if I should level up tailoring or just use gear from instance drops. I may do a little bit of both. The ideal would still be the Primal Mooncloth + Whitemend set, but with the new instances, that gear can come naturally as well.. Also, if she is at least in all blues she will be able to heal Kara with no problem, so gear + badges will come en masse as well.
I may just save myself the time and gold involved in leveling up tailoring. 😉
The other profession she has (not skilled up) is herbalism. I may still do that. Once I hit the 55 rough spot (ugh EPL/WPL), I may just chill out for a while and level up that skill.
I am in no hurry — yeah, I do want to hit 70, but I ain’t stressing about it. Plenty of healing opportunities will happen, I know that. 🙂
BTW, in the BRD pug that fell apart after 3 wipes on the first 5 mobs, I realized that my DPS as a shadow priest was on par with a 49 shammy.
