I知 going to be painting interiors walls in my house using Benjamin Moore regal select. Currently the paint on the walls are an off white, and I値l be painting them either light or darker gray. Is it still necessary to prime?

That should cover no problem.

As long as you don't buy the 6 sleeves for $8.99. Buy a better roller sleeve and a Purdy brush. Cheap brushes leave cheap cut lines.

B. Moore covers very well, you are fine with no primer.

Definitely get higher end brushes and roller covers.

Also, if the walls are in somewhat rough condition I'd use a flat gloss paint otherwise eggshell.
