@pask: Noone wants a priest that doesn't have UR, seriously. I once duoed in OI with my level 41 NM priest, and the ranger I duoed with complained constantly that I didn't have UR. They didn't say they were doing PVP, they said they were doing farming. A NM REC priest can easily farm solo before one with INT or WIS. And a full WIS priest will die INSTANTLY in PVP. A REC priest might live long enough to run away or wait for someone else to kill (it depends on budget). But no doubt, full WIS will get one-shot killed. Period.
I agree with the other 2 who said to go with an HM instead, and if you do, make it full REC as well.
Saying "dead meat in pvp" I meaned exactly that he would not be able to pvp, so on that point we agree.
HM is for sure a better solution, but the OP asked specifically about a NM priest, so I ssumed he doesn't have time or will to lv up an HM...
UR is an awesome skill for sure, but be able to heal is more important from my point of view and NM full rec are not good to heal.
Soloing with a NM full rec? Yes maybe it is possible... but what can be the reason to create a NM priest? Only one: it can grow up fast! Is soling a NM full rec fast? I think it is faster to soloing a full luc UM archer
