Fairly standard stuff here for Shadow. Just some nice DPS boosts. I can't see either of these things affecting the rotation much. 4P will make things easier to manage with longer DoTs.

I kind of thought it was unnecessary for the SW:P to have longer duration, since Mind Flay would refresh it anyway. Correct me if I'm wrong if they're going to change Shadow priests in MoP.

Just posted an article about Shadow Priest changes. One of them is that spell_shadow_siphonmana.jpgMind Flay no longer refreshes spell_shadow_shadowwordpain.jpgShadow Word: Pain :)

The Shadow 4P bonus seems kind of weak at the moment since it doesn't directly increase your damage, just make your dots last longer!

I think all of the other dps specs got directly a dps boost on their 4P bonus Posted Image

It means you use up fewer global cooldowns over the duration of the fight refreshing your DoTs, which leaves you more time to cast other spells. I don't know how it fares against the other set bonuses, but for now let's assume they're balanced :)

I think it does eventually translate in a DPS increase. If you refresh your DoTs less often, then you are spending less time casting whatever spell you have to cast to refresh these DoTs. It means, that you can spend more time casting other harmful spells.

Think I would prefer a pure dps increase rather than a DoT timer increase. I understand the whole extra cast-time but depending on encounters its not always the easiest to mess around with your DoTs! This is a holy priest talking ofc but still. Think I'd still prefer the other option :P

I heard from some guildies that multidotting will be king in MoP and an increased dot time really helps with this. Keeping your dots up on 4 enemies os quite hard but the extra duration gives you a little more time to do it. And it also goves you more time to cast other spells like mind vlast or mind flay.

It doesn't look like much and you might only win a couple of gcds per fight, but every little bit counts and in the end I prefer this over a flat 10% increase.

Multi-dotting damage was a bit out of hand on the first round of testing for The Stone Guard. Warlocks and Shadow Priests pushing 130k DPS is not really my idea of balance (that's with 3 targets up but only 2 of them taking damage). Other fights, like The Spirit Kings, have no additional mobs than the boss you are attacking.

I'm sure that multi-dotting damage will be brought to where it should be. Even so, this set bonus does seem like it will facilitate multi dotting.

I think it's interesting to keep an eye on this set bonus (and I believe Balance Druids and Feral Druids have similar ones) because it breaks the mold of the "straight DPS increase" set bonuses.

How do you guys feel about the healing 2 set bonus?

I don't particularly like it as a disc priest, mainly because I hardly ever use flash of light. Also, other healers are getting mana reduction to heavily used spells: Druids 10% reduced mana cost for Rejuvination

Do you think that the use of Flash of Light will increase come 5.0 launch?

Think the four set bonus makes up for it for sure. I dont use flash much either and depending on the mana regen and gear etc early on I doubt I will use it at all.

      Hello there,

      I am trying to find a character that suits me and 'till now i didn't find it..
      I have a Paladin level 110, a Rogue, DH, Warrior and a Druid. I really enjoyed to play Prot. Paladin but i was overwhelmed with all the knowledge i need to know for raids.I have to say that this is the class that i played the most. I have to say that i usually play in weekends and sometimes in week days.
      I enjoyed playing warrior in PVP but, that was it, nothing else..

      Two days ago i just got my Druid level 110 and played as Feral (with the intention to play Resto or Guard 'cause i want to be a healer and/or a tank but i found the rotations a little off for me..)

      Anyway, my question is, what should i play? I was thinking about a Disc Priest or a Ench/Resto Shaman or a Brew/Mist Monk. I just can't decide what i should play and unfortunately i have to level them from scratch..

      Any advice ?

      I really need a new perspective 'bout what i should play :)

      Thanks!

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      I'm not quite sure what's going on, but for some reason, I have yet to pull ANY Priest cards out of the thirty or so packs of KFT that I've opened so far. The only KFT Priest card that I have at all is Shadowreaper Anduin, which I got for completing the prologue. It's not that I'm getting bad pulls in general - I've pulled multiple legendaries already, and have lots of cards for every other class.
      I suspect that I'm just having an odd run of luck, but it does seem to be a bit anomalous. What -are- the chances of not getting any cards from a particular class out of thirty packs?

      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.
