About Our Author

This guide has been written by Isentropy, top Shadow Priest and one of the main theorycrafters of the spec over at Warcraft Priests. He currently raids in Echoes.

1. Gems for Shadow Priest

You should use Kraken's Eye of Intellect Icon Kraken's Eye of Intellect in one socket, and Deadly Amberblaze Icon Deadly Amberblaze (or the cheaper Deadly Solstone Icon Deadly Solstone) or Quick Owlseye Icon Quick Owlseye (or the cheaper Quick Golden Beryl Icon Quick Golden Beryl) in all other sockets.

2. Enchants for Shadow Priest

Slot Enchantment
Rings
Weapon

3. Consumables for Shadow Priest

Potion of Rising Death Icon Potion of Rising Death is the best choice of potion in single-target situations, provided you are at least 20 yards or more away from your target. Otherwise, you want to be using Battle Potion of Intellect Icon Battle Potion of Intellect for single-target. For multi-target you always want to be using Battle Potion of Intellect Icon Battle Potion of Intellect.

Flask of Endless Fathoms Icon Flask of Endless Fathoms is our flask of choice.

You should eat from the Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon Bountiful Captain's Feast (or the cheaper Galley Banquet Icon Galley Banquet) when possible, and otherwise Haste food (Swamp Fish 'n Chips Icon Swamp Fish 'n Chips or the cheaper Ravenberry Tarts Icon Ravenberry Tarts).

For Healing Potions, use Coastal Healing Potion Icon Coastal Healing Potion alongside a Healthstone Icon Healthstone if you have one at hand. In Battle for Azeroth, Healthstones and Healing Potions can be used alongside each other.

If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Rune Icon Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
