In case you are new to world of warcraft, a priest is a very highly valued addition to any group. While other classes have some healing abilities, the Priest is pretty much the king of all healers. Being a priest means that you will be staying clear of the fighting and focusing your efforts on keeping your group in top health to fight foes and defend you and other long range characters in your group.

If the idea of being a priest sounds a little boring to you, you have to understand that it is not just hanging out with a group and healing them all the time. The Priest usually plays best as part of group. Start off playing your priest as part of a group and only start soloing alot when you have reached level 25 or so. If this turns you off from playing a priest don't let it, the priest is just as much fun as any other class and can be very strategic to play. One last thing before we move on, if your into playing PVP be aware that the priest is a hot target in PVP, you will want to be extra careful. Now you can see just how cool the priest is. Once you get the feel of playing a priest in a group you will find it to be much more than just a healer.

Originally there were four priest races for the Alliance (draenei,dwarf,human,night elf) and just three for the Horde (blood elf,troll,undead).

We can now play a priest with four additional races (gnomes,taurens,goblins and worgens) thanks to the Cataclysm expansion.

Ok, enough chat lets get your wow priest up a few levels.

In the beginning the Lesser Heal spell will serve you well even though it does'nt sound like much, use it and the range spell Smite along with your first buff (Power Word Fortitude) and you will hold up reasonably well. Fortitude will assist your group, so as of now you will want to have it on all the time until you get something better. Even though the priest is the premier healer in world of warcraft does not mean that they don't have to keep a close eye on their own health and especially their mana,your group is relying on you to keep them healed and if you die so may they. Keep your distance, the Priest is not a melee fighter so don't play it like one. The farther you are from your enemies the better, let the hand to hand characters fight up close.

Continue leveling to level 4 when you will be able to use Shadow Word Pain, a good enemy debuff to make things easier. Continue using Shadow Word Pain and only switch back to Fortitude if needed. The Shadow Word Pain debuff only lasts for a while so keep an eye on it so you can cast it again when needed.

Leveling your priest to level 6 will allow you to use a nice shielding buff known as Power Word Shield, be sure to check it out. The priest is not able to wear armor of any kind so buff's like this are very important when going into battle. Also at level 6 you will want to visit a trainer to get your first substantial quest, take it and complete it as soon as you can.

Fade and Renew are two great spells that you can get at level 8.Renew is a excellent heal over time spell that will come in handy whenever you or your group is under attack, use it and use it often. Fade is used to distract your enemies from you by controling your aggro.

Mind Blast is a very nice spell that you can use once you have leveled your WOW priest to level 10. Mind Blast is an awesome range attack spell that does great damage and doesn’t use too much mana. You now have the Resurrection spell which will let you resurrect your fellow players. Also at level 10 you will receive your first talent point, so put some thought to what kind of WOW Priest you would like to become.

You will finally get a good defensive buff called Inner Fire when you reach level 12, use it to protect against enemy attacks.

Well, there you have it. This will get you off to a good start and by this time you should have a good feel on how to play a priest in WOW, think ahead a bit and you will do very well. For more advanced Priest information you should look into getting a detailed WOW guide.

Thanks and Happy Gaming.
