Shadow Priest DPS - Tier 7 Talents and You

7 posts in this topic

So we're 10 days into this and folks have had some time to get gear and do some testing on the Tier 7 Talents and secondary stat weights.

 

I'm curious how others are finding the talents, what secondary stats they're stacking with which talent and "how it feels" and some DPS numbers (Skada/Recount) on single target and multiple target fights.

 

I personally have (for now) settled on CoP and have been stacking Mastery and Multistrike as much as is possible at this point, and the single target numbers are steady around 16k DPS, at this time.  Multiple target fights, I find my DPS VERY weak compared to other classes and have been very disappointed with Mind Sear, and think it feels "broken", compared to what it used to be.

 

Overall, I'm a little disenchanted with what I'm seeing and wanted to get a sense for what others are experiencing.

 

You can see what I've got going on here 

 

Regards,

I have been running CoP as my Tier 7.  I've been running the Dot Weaving rotation on bosses and I like you think Mastery / Multistrike are the way to go.  With simcraft results it seems like mastery should be right behind Int and SP.  Our AoE damage is very depressing when comparing us to other classes.  A lot of the content seems to be AoE focused, which makes us look like poor performers.  My gear isn't all that great, my ilvl is around 629, I have just been assembling ilvl gear to get into heroics at this point and picking up what I can.

I tried Auspicious Spirits, dotless CoP, and finally settled on CoP lite (as described in the Icy Veins guide to shadow). I didn't like the feeling of the dotless CoP, and I think since I enjoy CoP lite the most it's been the rotation I've had the most success with. I'm stacking multistrike first which has also increased my DPS. I'm raiding with my guild tonight so will see where I'm at then more accurately, but when our guild did a full 40 man of Molten Core I was around number 6, so I think I'm satisfied with the rotation.

Last night, we raided Highmaul and I was present for The Butcher and Brackenspore, and was pulling 15k steadily with CoP lite, so I don't think it's dead. I don't even have gems yet in my heroic blue gear. But playstyles vary and it just might be what works for me, who knows.

After some testing... Stacking Haste (as much as possible) Mastery, then whatever else...

Some gear has changed since that Log... but not much (Cloak definitely and maybe ring?).

      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?
