Before you venture into the lands of World of Warcraft you must first create a character. There are a number of choices you must face when deciding who your priest will be. The first choice you must make is a server choice. In World of Warcraft there are 3 different server rulesets. The first is normal, in which you cannot be attacked by player controlled members of the opposing faction at any time. If you prefer killing monsters to people, then this is the server for you. The second is roleplaying. These servers encourage absolute immersion in the world. If you enjoy roleplaying your character then this is the server for you. The third server type is PvP. If you decide on a PvP server, any members of the opposing faction will be able to attack you at any time, in contested territory.
Now that you have chosen your server, you have to decide upon a faction. There are two choices - Alliance and the Horde. The alliance consists of Humans, Dwarves, Gnomes and Night Elves. The Horde includes Undead, Trolls, Tauren and Orcs.
The next step is to choose a race. The priest class is playable by 5 different races. On the Alliance side, Humans, Dwarves and Night Elves can play as priests. For the Horde,
Undead and Troll races can choose priest. Choosing the correct race is very important when playing a priest, as you gain access to additional spells and abilities.
