Best Consumables and Checklist for Shadow Priest in Wrath of the Lich King
Below is a list of the recommended consumables for a Shadow Priest in Wrath of the Lich King Classic. Some consumables have multiple options depending on your needs; be sure to choose accordingly.
- Flask of the Frost Wyrm
- Potion of Speed or Potion of Wild Magic & Runic Healing Potion
- Firecracker Salmon or Tender Shoveltusk Steak
- Saronite Bomb & Global Thermal Sapper Charge
- Glyph of Shadow Word: Death & Glyph of Dispersion
- Heavy Frostweave Bandage
Flask of the Frost Wyrm is the only flask recommended as it provides by far the greatest buff out of all of the options.
Your potion options are very close and will largely depend on your gear. Early on Potion of Speed should be slightly better, while Potion of Wild Magic becomes better the more you gear up. Regardless, the difference is very minor; use whichever fits you better. It is also recommended to always carry a stack of Runic Healing Potions on you as they can sometimes save your life, especially during trash pulls.
You have a few options for your food buff, all of which provide the same stats. Choose which one you use according to the prices on your server. You may also have someone in your raid providing the Fish Feast, saving you some gold on food buffs.
Best Profession Consumables for Shadow Priest in Wrath of the Lich King
Here we will list the unique consumables provided by each individual profession.
If you are an Engineer you will want to carry Runic Healing Injector on you instead of the normal potion counterpart as this injector restores an additional 25% health to Engineers. You will also want to stock up on explosives to deal high damage on AoE pulls.
You will want to carry a few of each of these glyphs on you to swap around depending on the fight, your raid's needs, and the role you are covering.
While these are minor and will see little use, it is always recommended to keep them on hand for the quick, Mana-free heal.
