In the enchants section, shield item should be removed?

Thanks, I fixed it! Replaced "Shield" with "Off-Hand".

I believe Enchant Boots - Surefooted is significantly better than Enchant Boots - Greater Haste.

I believe that this should not be so. We'll put it in the guide if Blizzard leaves it in. Thanks!

Hey, nice guide but I have one question I'm having a hard time getting answers for. Does Mind Flay (and maybe Mind Sear too?) count as a dot or direct damage? Because as you know they removed snapshotting from SW:P and VT so I wonder if this applies to MF too? So basically I wonder if MF benefit from your stats at the start of the cast or if MF, just like SW:P and VT changes when your stats do?

It should be noted, because of the glyph choices you present for shadow, that Prayer of Mending pops you out of shadow form (at least at this time it does).

Thanks for the suggestion, I've added these mentions!

Hi, I've a question about the flasks.

http://beta.wowdb.com/items/76085-flask-of-the-warm-sun gives 114 Int and http://beta.wowdb.com/items/58086-flask-of-the-draconic-mind gives 119 Int.

 

They both give me +125 Int under Attributes, is there a difference or can you use the cheaper Draconic-flask?

 

regards,

You can definitely switch to the cheaper one.

isent mastery more viable now that it got buffed?

It might be more viable (than before), but you are still good to go with using the stats we have in the guide right now.

I'm confused by the guide, on the rotation it says "

  1. Cast wow_icon_spell_shadow_unholyfrenzy.jpg Mind Blast if you have fewer than 5 Shadow Orbs."

I thought that the max for orbs is 3?

You get up to 5 orbs when levelled to 100 smile.png

Oh OK thank you, I must have missed reading that when I looked over the notes, that explains why I didn't have that ability at 90. Thanks!!!

Is Insanity still bugged so it scales down with Haste?

This isn't a bug, this is a design change on how often Insanity is available.

This makes insanity insane on bosses that give a casting speed debuff, use it as the debuff is about to end and you get insanity for a longer time depending on how powerful the debuff is. I think I had it for 20+ seconds without realising until it happened.

If you have a haste debuff (such as the one from Heigan the Unclean) when yo cast Devouring Plague your insanity will have a ridiculously long duration. So if you cast it as the debuff is about to end you can have 20+ seconds of insane Mind Flays.

 

Also, I don't think Psychic Horror Disarms anymore

as a shadow priest I find myself keeping myself bubbled pretty much everytime I see damage or know damage is incoming, why wouldn't u use reflective shield glyph as oppose to the other glyphs that have no dps/surviablity increase, that way even though u waste a global bubbling ur self u still do some damage with it

The main reason is because you should very rarely have to cast Power Word: Shield on yourself in a raid, basically. It is the job of the healers to keep you alive, and your job is to DPS. If you are using a global cooldown every time for PW:S, you are missing out on a lot of DPS. For those few times of super intense damage that you just have to shield yourself, it's not worth the glyph spot. And it doesn't always work, either.

      Rextroy is back with some more interesting videos and it seems he's starting a new series where he pits 40 of one class against 40 of another, presumably to go with BfA's conflict theme. Apparently both fights had a third, unforeseen adversary in the form of lag, but they ended up being a lot of fun nonetheless, with the lag actually adding a bit of tension to the proceedings, as abilities just erupt in waves.
      First off we have a Hero class face-off to mirror Arthas and Illidan's fight from Frozen Throne:
       
      And then it's on to Light vs. Death as Paladins take on the Lich King's elite:
       
      There's also an added bonus, as Rextroy also put together a weird expedition to Northrend, composed entirely of low level recruits to see if they could make it through the ghoul and undead infested Bombardment area in Icecrown. Why? Why not!
       
      It's always great to see these kinds of events, reminding us that there's always something to do in Azeroth, even if you're not too fond of the current content. MMOs are usually at their best when players take the reins and find their own fun, so thanks go out to Rextroy for these types of events and we hope to see more like it soon.
      If you know any interesting events like this, post your favorites below!

      Today's hotfixes are mostly just the PvP mana regen tuning from yesterday, but we also have some more Battle of Dazar'alor changes, this time for Heroic difficulty High Tinker and Rastakhan.
      February 14 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Battle of Dazar’alor High Tinker Mekkatorque Wind Up now grants 10% Haste and Movement Speed in Heroic difficulty (was 20%). Boss health lowered by 5% in Heroic difficulty. King Rastakhan Seal of Purification, Scorching Detonation, and Withering Burst should no longer hit pets. Uldir Taloc Orbs of Harmony will now respawn when the Taloc encounter resets. Player versus Player
      Restoration Druid mana regeneration is now reduced by 55% in PvP. Holy Priest, Holy Paladin, Restoration Shaman, and Mistweaver Monk mana regeneration is now reduced by 50% in PvP. Discipline Priest mana regeneration is now reduced by 45% in PvP. Balance Druid, Feral Druid, and Elemental Shaman mana regeneration is reduced by 35% in PvP. Developers’ notes: We’ve taken a careful look at healer mana during longer PvP engagements in both Arenas and battlegrounds, and the changes above are intended to address several concerns. In PvP, we want mana to feel like a more critical resource, and we want mana efficiency to be an important part of PvP healing. At the beginning of Battle for Azeroth, mana regeneration from all healer specs was reduced by 15-30% (depending on the class), and after reviewing the current state of the game, we feel like further reductions are necessary to both healer specs and a few hybrid specs. Druid
      Restoration Nourish (PvP Talent) mana cost increased by 30% Rogue
      Assassination Neurotoxin now increases the cooldown of affected spells by 1 sec, down from 3 sec. Neurotoxin now has a 45 second cooldown, up from 25 sec. Neurotoxin now has a 3 sec duration, down from 10 sec. Developers note: Unfortunately, we are unable to fix a number of technical issues with this spell at this time. We’re working on a fix for it that we hope to include in 8.1.5. Previous hotfixes.
