Mind Sear question

7 posts in this topic

I have a question regarding when to use Mind Sear in the Shadow Priest AoE rotation. Well, rather, I know when to use it, but I'm not sure if I should be channeling the tank (if he's in the middle of the pack) or one of the adds. I see you briefly mention channeling on the tank, but I don't understand why.

Does this mean wasted damage, since Mind Sear is not damaging the tank and it would have damaged the target I was channeling on, if I was channeling on one?

Thanks

I dont play shadow much but I think the reason for targeting the tank is that you will never need to switch target.

If you are targeting a specific add and halfway through your channeling that add dies, there will be dps loss as you have to find another target. But as the tank should fully survive the encounter anyway there wont be any dps lost in the process.

I hate to say it, but Peelyon is right. It's perfect for us lazy priests. You just channel on the tank, and he does all the work :P

      Hey all. I'm interested in what kind of add-ons people may be using for healing. I have tried healbot in the past and I'll be honest, I hate it.  Currently I am using a 12 button Naga with ELVUI  and its been decent , but I'm curious to know if there is something else out there I might find beneficial. I'm in the process of learning mouse over macro's  but I have a ways to go. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      First of all, I want to say good work on the new Class Guides!
      I want to make a suggestion on the format in which the rotation priority is being displayed.
      Currently there is a checkbox in the Frost Mage's Guide indicating if you have 2 targets to freeze, checking this box will add a new item in the priority list.
      My suggestion is to have a radio buttons above the rotation to indicate which Talents are selected. If the talent is not selected, it will not show up in the list. This can clear up some of the items on the priority list where it says: "Cast [spellname] if talented, <some conditions>". Allowing a cleaner priority list.
