This holy priest build focuses on pve healing. Guardian spirit is great for oh crap times in raids and there is a lot of synergy with prayer of mending and greater heal. You will also find that this build is great with spirit. Hopefully you will find a discipline priest for the spirit buff because you wont reach it with this build. This is not a build you want to walk on the battleground with though. You will get murdered unless they let you sit back and spam.
The first discipline priest healing talent you will get is 5/5 twin disciplines. This is great for prayer of mending and i think it affects surge of light procs also. This is a good tier one talent, and is good for filler points.
The second discipline priest healing talent you will get is 3/3 silent resolve. This is really just a filler point because you should not even come close to threat cap.
The third discipline priest healing talent you will get is 2/2 improved power word: fortitude. This is another filler point. Unless you are the only priest in the group, someone else will have this.
The fourth discipline priest healing talent you will get is 1/1 inner focus. This is a great cooldown for those tight situations where you need a crit greater heal.
The fifth discipline priest healing talent you will get is 3/3 meditation. This is a great regen high in the tree. MP5 is a must and this will pay off greatly.
The first holy priest healing talent you will get is 3/3 improved renew. Renew is a very strong hot, this makes it even stronger.
The second holy priest healing talent you will get is 5/5 holy specialization. Its always good to have crit. Crit has some synergy in the priest tree. Priest are not known for high crit ratings, but this helps a bit.
The third holy priest healing talent you will get is 5/5 divine fury. This is good because you will use greater heal a lot and heal is a nice low heal that you can constantly spam.
The fourth holy priest healing talent you will get is 1/1 desperate prayer. This 2 min cooldown hits like a truck and will save your but a lot. Get this and don’t be afraid to use it.
The fifth holy priest healing talent you will get is 3/3 inspiration. This gives your crit a little synergy. 25% armor is good, but does nothing for spell damage and tanks are usually closing in on armor cap anyhow.
The sixth holy priest healing talent you will get is 3/3 improved healing. This is a great talent for mana efficiency and make greater heal one of the best hpm in the game.
The seventh holy priest healing talent you will get is 1/1 spirit of redemption. This is the best single talent in all of the priest trees. It should be a 51 point talent, but it is 21 so enjoy it.
The eighth holy priest healing talent you will get is 5/5 spiritual guidance. This gives spirit synergy in your build. This lets you spec into spirit a little more and not lose the hitting power of the spells.
The ninth holy priest healing talent you will get is 2/2 surge of light. This is the talent that gives crit some synergy. This will give you free flash heals. I would say these two points give you 5% mana efficiency increase.
The tenth holy priest healing talent you will get is 5/5 spiritual healing. This is a must have to raid heal. 10% more healing on all spells is huge. And this makes priest scale awesome.
The eleventh holy priest healing talent you will get is 3/3 holy concentration. This is some more crit synergy. Every crit synergy point you invest in is good but let me explain something. Crit and crit synergy talents are highly bases on RNG (random number generation). This is great for dps but not so great for healing. Don’t sacrifice healing and spirit for crit.
The twelfth holy priest healing talent you will get is 5/5 empowered healing. This will make your greater heal even better. Greater heal has so much synergy in this build.
The thirteenth holy priest healing talent you will get is 3/3 serendipity. Finally, a reason to keep the tank topped off. This is a great talent and if used right could mean 25% more mana.
The fourteenth holy priest healing talent you will get is 3/3 improved holy concentration. This is great. Even more greater heal synergy. You will spamming greater heals like paladins spam flash of light.
The fifteenth holy priest healing talent you will get is 1/1 circle of healing. This is great aoe heal. This is a smart heal and is one of the best melee dps class heals. This will make you a great off healer.
The sixteenth holy priest healing talent you will get is 3/3 test of faith. Most of the time you will be healing people close to 50% health. This gives you a big boost and a big chance to enter clearcasting.
The seventeenth holy priest healing talent you will get is 5/5 divine providence. This is a aoe heal buff. This makes you a better aoe and off healer. Not really up to par with other classes talents in the same spot in their trees, but its good if you are the main off healer in the group.
The eighteenth and last holy priest healing talent you will get is 1/1 guardian spirit. This is a great oh crap button. Use it when you need it and even cast it on the tank if you are the off healer. This is good to cast on the main healer also in the tough parts on some raid fights.
