Shadow: Help on Prioritising over DP with MF:I

Sign in to follow this  

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
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      The Bloodborn is currently a Heroic raiding guild that is trying to break into Mythic progression raiding. We have a talented core and are very enthusiastic about raiding, but unfortunately we lack the numbers to attempt Mythic. We are a mostly adult guild ages 25-35 and would prefer like-aged people.
       
      A little history: The Bloodborn is a guild that has been around since The Burning Crusade. We started on the Lethon server and transferred to Illidan at the start of Warlords in an effort to find more players on a high-pop server.
       
      We have earned AoTC during every raid tier this expansion (and before!). We are a close-knit guild who help boost keys weekly, PvP, achievement hunt, and much more.
       
      We are willing to help people gear up for their tier. Voice is optional, but we use Discord and will require you at a minimum to listen.
       
      Guild Needs:
      DPS (Death Knight, Shadow Priest) are in high demand.
      Healers (Priest, Paladin, Shaman) are in high demand. 
      Accepting applications from all specs/classes.
       
      Raiding Times:
      Monday - Tuesday - Wednesday 9:30pm-12:30am(pst) 11:30pm-2:30am(server-time)

      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.
