Hi, since i decided to run healing priest for PVE i would like to run one in PVP aswell. But most of the guides i find on the internet are PVE oriented so cant gather much info from them.

Can anyone suggest me good PVP build? I know holy is best healing spec for PVE unless you are just farming that dungeon/raid but dont know how is it in PVP. whether is holy or disci better. I am also not sure about some talents like improved mana burn or inner fire aswell. I would like to see some suggested builds, preferably on db.vanillagaming.org

Should i focus on healing power only or also mix between HP and spell damage? Also is there a way how to improve my surviability against warriors? I know EQ does a lot but getting oneshotted with mostly MC gear is ridiculous.

Thanks for help.

Here is a pvp heal build i like to use:

http://armory.twinstar.cz/talent-ca...023213352510123150133000000000000000000000000

In terms of stats i like to prioritize stats like this:

1. Int
2. Stam
3. Sp

I find there is never any time for long heals so stacking int for insta casts like dispel, shields, and renew, as well as quick heals with small scaling, flash heal, is the best way to go.

Surviving a war is basically not trying to go solo in bg. If you do find yourself solo, refresh shield, renew, and inner fire at all times. Keep swp up and try and bait the war into pummeling your mindblast so you can free cast a greater heal and/or smite him to death.

Good luck out there!

Here are some builds I use. If you wonder "why x in stead of y" just juggle the points around, these builds aren't strict. Just don't juggle them into blessed recovery, that talent is pretty ass.

Hybrid builds:

28 / 2 / 21: http://db.vanillagaming.org/?talent#bxMGsGiZbZVMGd0t
16 / 14 / 21: http://db.vanillagaming.org/?talent#bxMGsZf0tcZVMGd0t

Disc:

32 / 19 / 0: http://db.vanillagaming.org/?talent#bxMGsAi0ofVtc

Tweaked PvE spec

19 / 32 / 0: http://db.vanillagaming.org/?talent#bxMGshZfhtcf0Vx
feel free to ask questions

Thanks a lot for your ideas.

This time i had luck and was in WSG without enemy having warrior. But what i noticed is it even viable to play heal priest pvp as aliance? A lot of times i found myself among like 3 tremor totems. Not mentioning horde probably consists of like 75% undead since WotF is broken and the rest of them had probably insignia ready.

Most of the time i get instakilled becasue my team simply runs away from me or i just follow one guy, get cced he gets killed and i stand no chance aswell.

Maybe i am just getting the whole concept wrong but i was really thinking about trading my dwarf priest for something else like rogue or warrior because of pvp .Most of the time alliance is scattered across whole WSG and there is nowhere to go and wont do anything on my own.

I fell like a punching bag, get cced and then IKd. I have mostly MC gear some preraid BIS and Benediction. around 3k HP. Will it be better if i reach some PVP gear? Since there is no resil on Vanilla i dont have clear idea aout pvp surviability outside of stam and armor which priest doesnt have a lot of. Most of the time alliance is scattered across whole WSG and there is nowhere to go and wont do anything on my own.

Build depends on playstyle. I like 33-18-0 with imp mana burn and inner fire with a little different variations in holy tree.
default: http://armory.twinstar.cz/talent-ca...023213352510123405103000000000000000000000000
offensive with some spell dmg equip: http://armory.twinstar.cz/talent-ca...023213352510123505100002000000000000000000000
with ZG set trinket: http://armory.twinstar.cz/talent-ca...023213352510123405100030000000000000000000000

Had an idea with defensive Spirit of Redemption build like this http://armory.twinstar.cz/talent-ca...023213350510023515103000010000000000000000000 but didn't test it yet.

I dunno why you get 0(1)/5 Holy specialization and 3/3 Inspiration in the disc specs when Inspiration works by crit procs. Just broken logic.

For all classes, cloth classes especially, and priests in particular, armor is extremely strong against physical damage. Having 40 armor on your gloves is definitely legit. Same as 70 armor on cloak. It gives you more effective hp, and makes your shield tougher to break, which is important to deny rage from enemy warriors.

the logic in taking spell warding over crit is that even with extra crit, the added uptime on inspiration will not be as such that it weighs up against +10%EHP and +10% healing from spell warding when fighting casters

I dont take spell warding because casters dont cause me such problems as melee classes if we consider the damage (especially if i get enough stamina).
Your task is not fighting casters as a healer. Casters (like mages and warlocks) must CC you instead of damage in most situations (i guess everybody understands it). You,accordingly, must LoS it if possible.
Instead of spell warding i got divine fury because of using Greater Heal when it's possible (protecting your fc on WSG when tons of warriors with MS focusing him and you at max range, for instance). And for smites too (when nuke efc in offensive).
I dont impose anything on anyone. As i said earlier some talents in your build depends on your playstyle.

@OP depends what u wanna do.Just heal?All out dps with the occasional shield on people?Or hybrid?

Also some people tend to go down spriest but dont take shadowform.This allows them to do good dmg as well as healing others and yourself.Since priests get magical+healing gear which is good for dmg and healing so it allows u to do this^.
