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.

      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, PUBG, 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.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: 
      Stjern#2802 or Azkey#21565
      To apply please visit our guild website: http://asylum-tn.enjin.com/recruitment

      Been loosing to secret mages a lot lately. Anyway to counter them? The spells they have are annoying and they are able to kill of my big minions using fireball, polymorph etc. How do you counter them?

      I am glad I'm watching Chump because not only he's an inspiration but also because I was browsing through the standard priest deck lists provided here and even though it's a long list they are all pretty much the same (many of them no fun anymore, at least to me and def. no fun to play against) and I get the feeling lately Icy Veins tries to provide the most expensive decks only. No doubt they are effective and successful but as I said, getting bored and it's kind of bad for every new player visiting this page and just seeing (s)he has to play longer than some cards take to rotate out of standard to acquire a viable deck. 
      So, I was wondering why are the no decks like the following in this list, something wrong with adding such decks? Of course you can't add every possible deck type/variation but with a dozen Highlander and Dragon priest decks already being in this list there should be room for at least one or two others.
      All credit goes to Chump for this deck, I'm just posting it as well as his first video with it.
      Total Arcane Dust cost: 1600
      With all of the cards being basic, common or rare we can assume most players have most of the cards maybe a few to craft. Pretty cheap imo.
      2x Emerald Reaver 2x Northshire Cleric 2x Potion of Madness 2x Power Word: Shield 2x Voodoo Doctor 2x Golakka Crawler 2x Radiant Elemental 2x Shadow Ascendant 1x Deathspeaker 2x Happy Ghoul 2x Kabal Talonpriest 2x Auchenai Soulpriest 2x Keening Banshee 1x Darkscale Healer 2x Sunborne Val'kyr 2x Bonemare Deck Code: AAECAa0GAsYEmssCDoQB7QHlBPIMtbsC8LsC2MEC3cIC5MICyMsCzswCn84Cps4ClegCAA==
      He was playing 2 version of this deck with the other being a bit more expensive using Genzo, the Shark and Leeroy Jenkins instead of the 2 Auchenai Soulpriest.
      Have Fun :)
      -> Budget Cannibal Warlock -> Budget Handbuff Paladin -> Budget Aggro/Tempo Rogue

      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!
