I'm not sure why anyone would want to level fishing on more than one character anyway. It is extremely painful. Lucky for me I can't equip the pole...
So I sold the 2 items back to the fishing vendor and will be forced to forever level that skill at 1.
Silly pallies think they own everything!
I wasn't sure about how well a naked level 10 priest would do against a lvl 12 bear but was ultimately victorious.
After training and spending my first talent point I thought I'd take my chances against the frigid mountains around Iron Forge to see if I could skill up Herbalism.
As long as I kept up my bubble it actually wasn't too cold out there and many herbs actually found a way to survive the snow as well.
At level 10 I had to finally decide on which path to go down and ended up deciding that if I wanted to continue surviving I would have to eventually get shadow form.
Once the tree was chosen I then had only 2 choices.
(1) Spirit Tap -- basically get a 33% chance after every kill to regenerate mana faster or (2) do 2% more shadow damage.
I finally decided that my first 3 points would go into Spirit Tap since mana has been harder to keep in my naked state and would be more beneficial while leveling than outputting a measly 2% more damage.

After sitting down in this lush Snapvine Watermelon patch it dawned on me that the boars here not only had leather that I could skin from their hides but that they kept respawning indefinitely as fast as I could kill them (which wasn't very fast by the way)
Anyway, it would turn out that I'd stay in this and a neighboring farm for the next few levels...
After setting my hearth in dalaran we met up in stormwind for a /hug and respectful /salute
Thanks for footing the bill Cheaptricks you are anything but cheap!
"looking for a free portal from the exodar to dalaran - pst if you can help me get there"
At first I got a few whispers saying things like "good luck the reagent to make a portal isn't free!"
but after my 18th post (yeah i stood there for 18 minutes posting that message 18 times) a nice rogue by the name of Cheaptricks invited me to their party and then found a level 80 mage and paid 10g for the mage to portal to the exodar and then create a portal for me to dalaran!
What an awesome rogue!
I made the long trek to The Exodar where I was able to train as a Journeyman.
Perhaps later I will see how long it takes a naked priest to bum a free port to dalaran so that I can set my hearthstone there making my travels a little bit easier.
Being naked is no reason to stop increasing my skill in Skinning...

A level 6 stag weighing in at 120 hp versus a lowly level 5 naked priest with a measly 102 hp.
The plan? Smite, SWP, then Smite until one of us dies...
Strategy isn't too difficult when you only have 2 damage spells to choose from.
I was fortunate enough to get 3 new 6-slot bags by the time I reached level 5.
There are the stalwart Tanks that function as a "meat shield" putting on as much defense and stamina gear that they can find in order to survive the attacks of many hard hitting bad guys.
There are the faithful Healers with the role of keeping those tanks alive when things get out of hand.
There are the persistent DPSers who use any device at their disposal to output as much Damage Per Second (DPS) as possible.
And finally there are the Idiots... people who really don't have any purpose being there other than to let others know they actually have a reason for being there and are not idiots.
And so enters the scene...Geme the Naked Priest
Q. Why Geme?
A. Well the name Gem was already taken and he was originally going to be a bank alt that sold Gems but during the opening cinematic I decided it would be better to sell all his starting gear to a vendor and then level him to 80 without ever equipping gear or doing quests.
Q. Why a Priest?
A. My very first character ever was a dwarf priest (back when they were cool and the only ones with fearward) I haven't played a priest since level 60 was the cap and thought it was time to try a priest again.
Q. Isn't it kind of dumb to never equip gear especially as a priest?
