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.

Peelyon is exactly right, indeed. Sorry for my delayed response :)

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

      By SkyzZNL
      Hey,
      So i just started WoW a few days ago, and i like it alot!
      I have been leveling with my friend and im wondering what spec i should choose, i know i dont want the shadow one cause i want to do healing.

      Cheers.

    • New Resto Shaman would highly appreciated if someone could help me
      By Ishkur
      Hello fellow shamans,
      I'm a freshly boosted shaman. Never played one before but I am keen on healing with him. I've been asking new raid to let him in and they allow it.
      I'm there as a resto shaman and I'm pulling very low number/ranking compared to both warcraftlogs and askmrrobot. I know my gears and enchants are not the optimal but I feel like with a solid rotation/priority I should be able to do better before concentrating on gearing.
      I did some research (mainly through google and chainheal) and I did try to maximize Riptide, Healing Stream Totem and Elemental Blast. As well as keeping uptime on Earth Shield and using Chainheal as fillers, but the numbers are way worse than I've imagined it would be. 
      I'd highly appreciated it if someone could help me with some pointers in resto shaman.
