Shadow: Help on Prioritising over DP with MF:I

4 posts in this topic

My main is Warlock so I know everything about how Dots line up with procs.

But I struggle prioritising on my Shadow priest, especially when i use DI.

 

When is it worth stop channeling MF:I? Is it worth stop channeling to hard cast MB?

 

When I face multiple mobs and I already have 3 orbs as they are pulled, should I dot them up before i use DP and MF:I? If so, how many targets should i dot up? 

 

If there are 3+ mobs up for a long time and I use DI, which means i get tons of MB procs; should I cancel MF:I to cast those mind blasts when DI procs? I do this because then I can get a new DP faster.

 

If I get a powerful proc when my dots are weak, and I am currently channeling MF:I, should I stop channeling to refresh dots and make them more powerful? 

 

When there are a lot of mobs, like 4+, how many dots should I spread and whichone? Should i even bother channeling MF:I with DP in this situation?

 

 

You don't have to answer all of them, but it would be really great with some help here, feel free to add things aswell... things I might not know about.

Thanks in advance! smile.png

 

Would aprecciate in-game help aswell, battletag is Akkatest#2962 (eu)

Yes. Always.

 

When I face multiple mobs and I already have 3 orbs as they are pulled, should I dot them up before i use DP and MF:I? If so, how many targets should i dot up? 

 

 

 

This is a very specific situation, in fact this scenario could only be the Klaxxi Council. In which case there's only one priority target, so you'd open as if it were a single target fight. 

 

On Protectors of the Endless you're not going to get much mileage out of MF:I, so I'd dot them all before bothering with MF:I (but wouldn't ever use MF:I on this fight!).

 

So in the true multi-target scenario, you'd dot them all before starting to channel MF:I, but you'd gain more DPS via FDCL or Mindbender over the course of the fight. 

 

If there are 3+ mobs up for a long time and I use DI, which means i get tons of MB procs; should I cancel MF:I to cast those mind blasts when DI procs? I do this because then I can get a new DP faster.

 

 

 

Yes, always. Shadow Orbs aka Devouring Plague is always the priority.

 

f I get a powerful proc when my dots are weak, and I am currently channeling MF:I, should I stop channeling to refresh dots and make them more powerful? 

 

 

 

The proc should last long enough to finish the channel and then reapply dots... AffdotsPriest provides an easy visualization so you can see if they're worth reapplying. Remember that your MF:I also benefits from that proc, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. 

 

 

When there are a lot of mobs, like 4+, how many dots should I spread and whichone? Should i even bother channeling MF:I with DP in this situation?

 

 

 

 

You wouldn't use MF:I in this situation, FDCL would be stronger or even Mindbender. If the mobs are persistent, like Protectors, you dot them all. Short lived mobs, like Norushen, you'd use SW:P mostly to get ToF procs, or apply VT/SW:P on Adds at the back if people aren't killing them quickly enough. 

 

Dots are always worthwhile if they'll get their full duration.

 

u don't have to answer all of them, but it would be really great with some help here, feel free to add things aswell... things I might not know about. Thanks in advance!

  

 

DI is most suited to the single target encounters, Galakras, Juggernaut, Malkorok, Thok, Seigecrafter. Also Klaxxi Council as it's really a single target fight with additional bodies to get procs from, although ToF is strong here too.

 

ToF is your best choice in fight where it has a high uptime, >50%. So basically any fight with Adds.

 

MF:I is strong on most fights, except Protectors since you'll spend most of your time multi-dotting and won't have much of a chance to channel it. Arguments can also be made for FDCL on fights with movement, like Garrosh, or Mindbender on Immerseus.

Thanks a lot for your help, i'm gonna learn this information and use your expertise next time I do Soo smile.png

 

Any chance you could just give some tips on how to perfectly make the most out of the Blood of Y'shaarj trinket? I know it has a really high skill cap as I have it on my warlock, so wanna be ready to know how to use it when I get it on my Shadow Priest.

Thanks smile.png

This article by Sheytan of Stormreaver-US addresses BBoY spell priorities nicely. 

 

To quote that article:

 

In general, you want to wait until 5-6 stacks, refresh SWP/VT, then hit DP and cast as much MF:I as possible

 

 

The reasoning/math is included. 

 

I'm still trying to the coin that Trinket... I have H Bindings and WF Totem, so waiting behind the the other Casters for it sad.png

      ABOUT US
      We are a very social guild LFM for progression/semi-casual raiding and leveling. 
      When we say "semi-casual," we mean that we raid two days for three hours, can laugh about a wipe but are still serious about progression. We plan to do Normal raids (not for long) before going on to Heroic and Mythic.
      New players and all levels welcomed. We are VERY new player and new role friendly and have a few new players in the raid group already. We will work with you and get you trained up. So don't worry! 
      We do have some PvPers and an experienced RBG leader so PvP isn't out of the question.
      We're almost always on Discord and we joke around a lot. Some jokes aren't appropriate so keep that in mind. (Recommended 18+)
      LOOT STYLE
      Currently we are using the EPGP system (http://wowwiki.wikia.com/wiki/EPGP).
      The addon EPGP (DKP Reloaded), EPGP Lootmaster, DBM, and GTFO are required to be downloaded and kept up-to-date on raid nights.
      RAIDING SCHEDULE
      Fridays & Sundays 8pm - 11pm PST. (10pm - 1am Server Time.) NOTE: Flasks, foods, potions, and enchants will be provided for raiders on a first-come first-serve basis. People who contribute to the guild bank will also have preference. Guild repairs provided on raid nights. Trials will be provided with the aforementioned items if we can spare them after the main raiders. CURRENT PROGRESSION
      Emerald Nightmare, [7/7N] [6/7H] Trial of Valor, [2/3N] OTHER EVENTS
      Saturday is for Mythics/other events. Though we do stuff throughout the week. Most of us have work or school so it depends. The Karazhan mega-dungeon is done on a weekly basis on Saturdays! We will help with attunement! WHAT WE HAVE ROOM FOR**
      Shadow Priest Balance Druid Mage Elemental Shaman **In order of what we need the most!!

      Hello fellas and Shadow Priest friends!
       
      I got a semi-big problem and I hope that some of you guys could help me. I think my DPS is too low for my GS and I am clueless what I could do different to have more damage done! I mean I don't think myself a total noob and I am better than the most Shadows I see when I go dungeons or raid but I know I could do more ...
       
      Here is my gear (which btw is trangsmogged pretty stilishly :p)

      Here are the logs of yesterday - Monday, 11.14.2016
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/NvBxJrLdGzqaXTby/#fight=13
       
      Don't look at Ursoc or the Nightmare Dragons ... I died too early and I was derp :s
      I think a good damage boss for Shadow Priests is Elerethe, as you can use your S2M as soon as you land on the second platform yet I only have 315k. An other example is Odyn with 280k. I mean okay, we tried him the first time and wiped once but he is not really complicated and I got a good hang on him and still I wonder how some Shadow Priests have over 400k DPS fighting Odyn. I know I only have one Legendary and it's not very good but luck's not on my side I guess. 
       
      Any hints what I do better to be THE DPS monster :D, or atleast have more DPS?
       
      Have a nice everyone and I want to thank you in advance for all your helpful tips!

      Critical Strike: 27%
      Haste: 33%
      Mastery: 29%
      I'm using "Legacy of the Void."
      Any stats I should bring up or lower in relation to each other?

      Say I walk into the Eye of Azshara and 6 NPCs are pulled, as a Shadow Priest, what exactly do I do? Do I tab through them all and DoT them all up, then Mind Sear them? Do I just dot 2 or 3 of them, followed by a Mind Sear. Do I even dot any of them and just Mind Sear?
      I hope someone can give me a clear and concise explanation of how such AOE would be executed.
      Would be helpful!

      <Garden> is 1/7M, and is looking for a skilled resto shaman, resto druid, and shadow priest for mythic progression. We are always accepting applications from skilled players of any class. We are a relatively laid back raiding guild, raiding twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays 830est-1130est. We request our raiders to be online 15 minutes before raid, and some nights we will raid past raid time to secure a kill. Visit "gardenguild.pizza" for more information.
      If you have any questions feel free to message me in-game at; Collybuds#1702 or just submit an application on the guild website which will be reviewed.
