This weekend I'm bound to hit level 40 on my Priest, seeing that currently I'm 37 and levels are flying by. Lately I haven't had the chance to level the Priest a lot due to the Love is in the Air event that I had to complete on my Hunter main. On the other hand, I've faithfully completed all the Stormwind dailies that the holiday offers on the Priest, because they are incredibly easy and give a ton of XP.
Level 40 is the "Big One". That's because several things will occur: I will get an epic mount, I will buy Dual Spec and I will get access to some of the Priest's most powerful talents. At 40 I can finally get a proper healing spec and I've decided to focus on Discipline because this tree seems to be the best for healing single targets, or in other words it works best for anything outside raids.
In order to prepare for the Big 40, I've drawn a roadmap for how my Discipline talents will look, up to level 80. I decided to start from level 20, even though I've got a big head start on those who might wish to spec Discipline from level 10. I don't recommend it though. You can heal well enough as Shadow all the way to 40. So here's my roadmap.
Key talent: Inner Focus.
Key talent: Soul Warding.
Key talent: Power Infusion.
Key talent: Pain Suppression.
Key talent: Penance.
I'm not sure this is the very best spec but to me it feels right. One thing that I'm not 100% certain of is Pain Suppression because it seems to be mostly a PvP talent from what people are saying. I still think it'll come in handy on myself though because I seem to grab aggro more often than I would like in spite of using Fade every time it's off cooldown.
So what do you guys think?
