Class Overview

The Shadow specialisation is currently able to deal medium to medium-high single target damage and high AoE damage, in PvE encounters. It presents players with a rotation that is both easy to understand and easy to master.

The Shadow Priest playstyle is very reliant on DoTs, and this means that they also do very well in situations where they can multi-DoT several targets.
