I Dont Understand My Shadow Orbs

Good day! 

 

So I've been leveling up my shadow priest, I've read the guide on icy veins and everything but I am still very confused about these shadow orb things.  How many do I have?  Because on my UI I can see that I have 3 slots for orbs, and when I generate an orb, the slot is filled up indicating I now have an orb.  But the guide indicates its possible to have 5 orbs... and I am also seeing orbs around my character.  Are the orbs around my character the same as the orbs on my UI?  How do I tell if I have more than 3 orbs (if I do) if my UI tells me I have 3, but my character has 4 or 5 floating around him?  lol .... I just need some clarity on this whole mess, because I can't understand my class if I dont understand this orb nonsense.

 

Thankyou.

Until you're into WoD expansion leveling (90-100) you will have 3 orbs max.  One of the enhancements that comes as you're leveling from 90-100 is "Enhanced Shadow Orbs" I think is what it's called.  It grants you 2 more slots to generate shadow orbs into.  You can get this on either level 92,94,96, or 98.  The enhancements that Shadow priests earn are; Enhanced Shadow Orbs- just explained above.  Enhanced Mind flay-mind flay deals damage 33% faster.  Enhanced Shadow Word: Death- both casts of Shadow Word: Death generate a shadow orb, no matter what.  and Enhanced Power Word: Shield(I think thats what it's called)- and it lowers the debuff "Weakened Soul" by 3 seconds i believe

Hope this Helps! For a comprehensive overview of shadow priesting I recommend going here http://howtopriest.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=6291

Thankyou for the prompt reply.  I am currently lvl 92, and still my UI only indicates that I can have 3 orbs, yet I am still seeing more than 3 around my character, sometimes even when I only have 2 orbs.

The Draenor perks are actually earned at random. There are 4 perks (earned at 92-94-96-98) and one of them is the "Enhanced shadow orbs". Your UI will actually change to reflect this, no worries!

      So I just got back into playing hearthstone again, been a little over a year(still consider myself a noob), and I just got enough dust to craft a legendary. I've been playing priest a lot lately due to the shadowreaper anduin drop, and I've really been enjoying it, but can't seem to get past rank 20. Should I craft Lyra, Raza, or Velen to make that deck better, or forgo crafting a legendary and focus more on rares/epics to fill out the deck?
      I think it's a control deck but I'm not entirely sure, still new to building decks.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
