Best Dragonflight Talents for Shadow Priest

While optimizing talents on a contextual basis is the highly recommended method of setting up your build, the Talent builds listed below work great for specific purposes.

Note that these builds are generic recommendations for various content. For more specific recommendations for the Raid and Mythic+ in Season 4, check out the dedicated pages below.

The video version of this guide is also available if you would like to watch along as I talk about Shadow Priest.

If you want an overview and breakdown of every Talent, check out the Spell Summary first to help navigate your build choices.

3.

Single Target Build for Shadow Priest

This build is the default single target build for Shadow, with an option to use either Void Eruption Icon Void Eruption or Dark Ascension Icon Dark Ascension depending on your preference. These options are extremely close together (within 1% or less). On certain kill times, you might find Dark Ascension can give more value with cooldowns every 1-minute.

The big difference between the two builds is with movement, where generally speaking, the Void Eruption Icon Void Eruption build handles mechanics and movement better than the Dark Ascension Icon Dark Ascension, which can be punished more for moving out of the fire on the ground.

Options with this build:

  • Mind's Eye Icon Mind's Eye is the preferred choice with this build, beating out Distorted Reality Icon Distorted Reality by about 1%.

Use the code below to import the top Dark Ascension Icon Dark Ascension build for single target.

3.

Single Target + Shadow Crash Build for Shadow Priest

Sometimes you want as much single target as possible while also taking Shadow Crash Icon Shadow Crash. This can be good for Raid encounters with mostly single target but with adds or for Mythic+ dungeons with smaller pulls on Tyrannical Icon Tyrannical.

If you are looking for a more generic Raid build that can handle a wider variety of encounters, I would suggest starting here. You take a loss in single target to grab more cleave talents to handle more situations like regular add spawns. This is roughly 3% behind in pure single target compared to the standard build.

While in pure single target I would start with Void Eruption Icon Void Eruption, this build has a tougher time fitting in Shadow Crash Icon Shadow Crash which makes it a bit further behind Dark Ascension Icon Dark Ascension, even with more movement. Both are still competitive options.

There is also the following build with Void Eruption Icon Void Eruption that is less than 1% behind the base version. This could be advantageous depending on the fight duration.

  • BIQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAggkEAAAAAAAAAAAAgQKBJJt0IJJJRSBShkkEpRgICpItQSQBJA

3.

Council Multi-Target Build for Shadow Priest

This build is the perfect starting point for AoE environments like Council bosses in raid or even Mythic+ dungeons. While maximizing our AoE damage, it also deals great priority target damage during AoE while also having decent single target.

This build is similar to the Mythic+ variant although it will prefer Distorted Reality Icon Distorted Reality for the increases sustained AoE damage. You can also run this build in Mythic+.

Options with this build:

  • For low-target cleave environments if you are confident with managing your Vampiric Touch Icon Vampiric Touch you can also experiment with dropping Shadow Crash Icon Shadow Crash and Whispering Shadows Icon Whispering Shadows for more Insanity generation with Maddening Touch Icon Maddening Touch.

3.

Mythic+ Build for Shadow Priest

This build is the perfect starting point for Mythic+ dungeons. While maximizing our AoE damage, it also deals great priority target damage during AoE while also having decent single target.

Class talents were selected as a safe default for most keys, but usually you can move points around from Purify Disease Icon Purify Disease, Mass Dispel Icon Mass Dispel, Manipulation Icon Manipulation, or Shattered Perceptions Icon Shattered Perceptions based on the needs of that key. Manipulation and Shattered Perceptions are less than 1% of your damage in a Mythic+ dungeon. Check out the class talents section below for more info.

Options with this build:

  • By default, this build assumes you are in keys where you need survivability from Mental Fortitude Icon Mental Fortitude and also do not want to drop Silence Icon Silence. Strictly speaking, this is a DPS loss; if you want to drop one of those points, you can add back a point into Mental Decay Icon Mental Decay. This is roughly a 2-3% damage gain.
  • You can swap out Mind's Eye Icon Mind's Eye for Distorted Reality Icon Distorted Reality if you want more overall damage (6-10%) for a loss in priority target damage (20-24%). With Distorted Reality you should spread Devouring Plague Icon Devouring Plague.
  • You can flex points with this build depending on if you want more AoE, Overall, or Single Target. Put four points into any of the following:
    • Mind Devourer Icon Mind Devourer - Overall
    • Maddening Touch Icon Maddening Touch - AoE (particularly good with Mind's Eye Icon Mind's Eye)
    • Dark Evangelism Icon Dark Evangelism - AoE
    • Mental Decay Icon Mental Decay - Single Target
    • Phantasmal Pathogen Icon Phantasmal Pathogen - ST (Mind's Eye Icon Mind's Eye) or AoE (Distorted Reality Icon Distorted Reality)

For flex points, the big takeaway is that Distorted Reality Icon Distorted Reality does well with Phantasmal Pathogen Icon Phantasmal Pathogen, since we are spreading Devouring Plague Icon Devouring Plague with that Talent. This season Mind Devourer Icon Mind Devourer in particular does well in all builds due to the extra modifier on Devouring Plague and the synergy with getting more of the out with our tier set bonus.

In mass AoE, you might find Maddening Touch Icon Maddening Touch to give more damage (+0.5%) when running Mind's Eye Icon Mind's Eye in particular, however, this is typically not a gain in overall (-0.5%) compared to Mind Devourer Icon Mind Devourer or Phantasmal Pathogen Icon Phantasmal Pathogen due to how strong those options are in lower target count pulls and single target.

Use the below import string for the version with Distorted Reality Icon Distorted Reality:

  • BIQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAECiEAAAAAAAAAAAAgQaSkk00IJJJRSBOQjkkEpRgISki0CJBFkA

If you are looking for a build that is a bit more relaxed for lower-level keystones check out this build with Dark Ascension Icon Dark Ascension:

  • BIQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAEISEAAAAAAAAAAAAgEaRkIl0IJJJJJF4ANSSSkGBiIRKSLkEUgE

This build is designed for keystones that most players are completing. Check out the dedicated Mythic+ page to learn more about optimizing builds at all levels.

3.

Pre-Set Bonus Builds for Shadow Priest

If you are starting out in Season 4 with the previous Season 3 set bonus you should use the following builds until you get the new set bonus and drop the Season 3 2-piece. I would generally advise not breaking the previous 4-piece until you get the full new set bonus, but this will ultimately come down to the item level it drops at.

Once you get the new Priest Shadow 10.1 Class Set 4pc Icon Priest Shadow 10.1 Class Set 4pc set bonus you should no longer use these builds. They should ONLY be used with the Season 3 4-piece set bonus.

Single Target build with Dark Ascension Icon Dark Ascension:

  • BIQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIREAAAAAAAAAAAAgkoFkIl0OgkERSSBSjkkEpRgICpItQSQBSA

Single Target + Shadow Crash Icon Shadow Crash build with Dark Ascension Icon Dark Ascension:

  • BIQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIJJHAAAAAAAAAAAAAIhWQiUSjkEJJJFINSSSkGBiIki0CJBFIB

Council Multi-Target Build with Void Eruption Icon Void Eruption:

  • BIQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAEikIBAAAAAAAAAAAAQolQINNSSSSkUg0IJJRaEIiQKSLkEUQSA

Low Key Level Mythic+ Build with Dark Ascension Icon Dark Ascension:

  • BIQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAEIJJAAAAAAAAAAAAASoFRiUSjkEJJJFQhkkEpRKIiEpItQSQBSA

High Key Level Mythic+ Build with Void Eruption Icon Void Eruption:

  • BIQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAECJEAAAAAAAAAAAAAJpkEh00IJJJRSBUIJJRakCiIRKSLkEUQC

The main difference from a Low or High key perspective is how effective your cooldown usage is. If you use Void Eruption Icon Void Eruption and after finishing off a pack your Voidform Icon Voidform still has 10+ seconds remaining, it probably is too low of a key, and you would have been better off using Dark Ascension Icon Dark Ascension. Generally this cutoff seems to be around a +10 in Season 4.

Essence Devourer Icon Essence DevourerSomewhat random healing effect added to Shadowfiend Icon Shadowfiend or Mindbender Icon Mindbender that can proc Twist of Fate Icon Twist of Fate if it heals allies below the threshold.
2.2.

Spec Talents

Dispersion Icon DispersionMain defensive ability that also doubles as a movement cooldown should you really need it.
Shadowy Apparitions Icon Shadowy ApparitionsAdds a gameplay loop into our kit around these apparitions that can make them a powerful damage source if you build around them.

Mental Fortitude Icon Mental FortitudeGood passive defensive Talent that is critical for high damage taken encounters.
Misery Icon MiseryRequired Talent that reduces the amount of time spent casting DoT spells considerably.

Psychic Link Icon Psychic LinkOne of our AoE components that extends our single target spells (including Devouring Plague Icon Devouring Plague) to hit targets in range that are affected by Vampiric Touch Icon Vampiric Touch.
Surge of Insanity Icon Surge of InsanityEnhances our fillers to give a gameplay loop with spending Insanity on Devouring Plague Icon Devouring Plague. Mind Flay: Insanity Icon Mind Flay: Insanity is the default version, while Mind Spike: Insanity Icon Mind Spike: Insanity is given when talented into Mind Spike Icon Mind Spike.
2.2.2.

Row 5-7

Dark Ascension Icon Dark Ascension/Void Eruption Icon Void EruptionOne of our main cooldown abilities that lets you choose a sort of playstyle of the spec. This choice has some impacts on other talents chosen, particularly in the bottom section of the spec tree.
Mental Decay Icon Mental DecayExtends our filler spells to increase the duration of Shadow Word: Pain Icon Shadow Word: Pain and Vampiric Touch Icon Vampiric Touch every time they deal damage. This does NOT work in AoE with Psychic Link Icon Psychic Link or with Devouring Plague Icon Devouring Plague.
Whispering Shadows Icon Whispering ShadowsMakes Shadow Crash Icon Shadow Crash worth taking as it now is upgraded to apply Vampiric Touch Icon Vampiric Touch (and Shadow Word: Pain Icon Shadow Word: Pain since we have Misery Icon Misery) on up to 8 targets that are hit by Shadow Crash. Loosely tries to prioritize targets that do not have Vampiric Touch already active.
Shadowy Insight Icon Shadowy InsightOne of the proc-based spells we have in our kit that gives you an instant cast Mind Blast Icon Mind Blast. This resets the current charge that is cooling down and does not give you a full extra charge.
Ancient Madness Icon Ancient MadnessAdds to your cooldown of choice by giving it a small boost to burst at the start of the cooldown. It does not actually increase the Critical Strike chance on your character stat sheet; only buffs specific spells hidden from the user.
Mind Devourer Icon Mind DevourerAdditional proc based spell that can make Distorted Reality Icon Distorted Reality in particular even stronger of a choice.
Mind's Eye Icon Mind's Eye/Distorted Reality Icon Distorted RealityAllows you to choose if you want to press Devouring Plague Icon Devouring Plague more often with Mind's Eye Icon Mind's Eye or press it a bit less but get a corresponding bump in uptime and damage.
2.2.3.

Row 8-10

Mindbender Icon MindbenderReplaces Shadowfiend Icon Shadowfiend with a slightly nerfed version of the pet, but significantly lowers its cooldown.
Deathspeaker Icon DeathspeakerGives you another proc into the kit that gives you more procs as you get haste that makes Shadow Word: Death Icon Shadow Word: Death quite powerful.
Void Torrent Icon Void Torrent Medium-sized cooldown spell that deals more damage the more haste you have during a fixed channel size. This does generate a moderate amount of Insanity and immediately triggers an Idol of C'Thun Icon Idol of C'Thun proc if talented.
Inescapable Torment Icon Inescapable TormentTransforms Mindbender Icon Mindbender into a much more powerful cooldown.
Insidious Ire Icon Insidious IreMassive increase to priority and single target damage for Mind Blast Icon Mind Blast and Void Torrent Icon Void Torrent.
Idol of Y'Shaarj Icon Idol of Y'ShaarjAdds an extra effect every time you summon Mindbender Icon Mindbender.
Idol of N'Zoth Icon Idol of N'ZothGives you another AoE component in the kit that is capped at 4 enemies and then deals reduced damage beyond 5 targets hit for every tick.
Idol of Yogg-Saron Icon Idol of Yogg-SaronCapstone talent that builds off of Shadowy Apparitions Icon Shadowy Apparitions talents and plays well with Void Eruption Icon Void Eruption.
Idol of C'Thun Icon Idol of C'ThunVersatile Talent that gives you a proc of Insanity in the form of a Void Tendril (Single Target) or Void Lasher (AoE). When fighting 3 or more targets (around the one that procced the spell), you will proc the AoE Void Lasher instead of the Void Tendril. Note that the Insanity generation does not change based on which tendril procs.

Several of our talents actively change your rotation, specifically your priority in given situations. You can find out more in the rotation section below.

Priest Class Talent Choices

While the builds above have sane defaults for Class Talents, this section will go in-depth about the various choices we have with class talents depending on the situation you are in.

3.1.

Always Use Class Talents

The following is a list of class talents I would always use as a Shadow Priest. These are useful in just about every situation in PvE and will be the core talents for any build.

  • Shadowfiend Icon Shadowfiend - Baseline
  • Shadow Word: Death Icon Shadow Word: Death - Baseline
  • Death and Madness Icon Death and Madness and Tithe Evasion Icon Tithe Evasion - Any build that ever uses Shadow Word: Death Icon Shadow Word: Death should always have these nodes.
  • Dispel Magic Icon Dispel Magic - Useful for pathing and great utility.
  • Improved Flash Heal Icon Improved Flash Heal and Protective Light Icon Protective Light - Gives us another valuable active defensive with no cooldown.
  • Angelic Feather Icon Angelic Feather and/or Body and Soul Icon Body and Soul - Movement talents, typically I would suggest having both.
  • Power Infusion Icon Power Infusion and Twins of the Sun Priestess Icon Twins of the Sun Priestess - Damage cooldown and massive group throughout utility.
  • Vampiric Embrace Icon Vampiric Embrace and San'layn Icon San'layn - Extra healing utility that is taken all the time. Situationally Sanguine Teachings Icon Sanguine Teachings could also be used.
  • Twist of Fate Icon Twist of Fate - Execute damage that unlocks nodes in the bottom section.
  • Throes of Pain Icon Throes of Pain - Baseline damage to Shadow Word: Pain Icon Shadow Word: Pain and should be taken in all situations.
  • Halo Icon Halo or Divine Star Icon Divine Star - One of the few damage nodes on the tree.
  • Translucent Image Icon Translucent Image - Transforms Fade Icon Fade into an active defensive.
  • Mindgames Icon Mindgames - Another baseline damage ability. The subsequent 3 points are not always taken.
3.2.

Situational Class Talents

Now that you have an idea of the baseline suggested class talents , you can finish off your build based on the content that you are doing. Depending on the specific raid boss or dungeon environment you should tweak these choices based on what you need. In some situations, you might need more utility, and for others, if you do not need that utility, you can instead pick up more defensive choices.

The following talents are the utility choices we have as a Priest. You should only take these if you need them, otherwise fill points elsewhere.

  • Psychic Voice Icon Psychic Voice - Gives a reduction in the cooldown of Psychic Scream Icon Psychic Scream which can be useful to get more AoE CC available.
  • Phantasm Icon Phantasm - Transforms Fade Icon Fade to also break snare effects. Note that this is different from root effects.
  • Leap of Faith Icon Leap of Faith - Iconic Priest ability that is nice to have in certain situations.
  • Shackle Undead Icon Shackle Undead - Hard CC ability that works on Undead enemies.
  • Void Tendrils Icon Void Tendrils - AoE root ability for enemies in a radius around the caster.
  • Dominate Mind Icon Dominate Mind - Turns your Mind Control Icon Mind Control spell into one that instead makes the enemy a pet. This can be particularly useful in some Mythic+ Dungeons. This node is also required for certain pathing decisions and is often taken for just that reason.
  • Mass Dispel Icon Mass Dispel - Powerful dispel tool.
  • Power Word: Life Icon Power Word: Life - Gives you a powerful spell for off-healing.
  • Essence Devourer Icon Essence Devourer - Passive healing that does particularly well with Mindbender Icon Mindbender builds.
  • Void Shift Icon Void Shift - While use cases in PvE are slim this is occasionally great utility to have.

Once you get all the utility points you need for the content you are doing, you can then add the defensive points you need. This part is tricky as depending on content, this can vary wildly, but here are your options roughly ranked in terms of strength.

  1. Spell Warding Icon Spell Warding - 3% magic damage reduction
  2. Improved Fade Icon Improved Fade - Allows you to press Fade Icon Fade more often for the defensive value.
  3. Angel's Mercy Icon Angel's Mercy - Can be useful depending on timings of a mechanic you are trying to counter, but pathing into it can be cumbersome.
  4. Void Shield Icon Void Shield - Can give Power Word: Shield Icon Power Word: Shield a bit more value when used defensively for passive ticking damage.
  5. Light's Inspiration Icon Light's Inspiration - Makes Desperate Prayer Icon Desperate Prayer stronger but usually this increase does not actually change what would be considered lethal.
  6. Crystalline Reflection Icon Crystalline Reflection - Gives a very small heal with casts of Power Word: Shield Icon Power Word: Shield that can also give a bit of damage depending on the situation.
  7. Angelic Bulwark Icon Angelic Bulwark - Inconsistent cheat death-like shield that usually does not proc when you actually need it.

Note that I suggest taking Protective Light Icon Protective Light and Translucent Image Icon Translucent Image by default in the top section. These are easily the most valuable defensive nodes in our class tree and should always be taken.

The last thing to consider is if you can fit in the remaining Mindgames Icon Mindgames talents. The three total points in Manipulation Icon Manipulation and Shattered Perceptions Icon Shattered Perceptions typically make up less than 1% of your overall damage. This typically makes them okay to drop in most scenarios, depending on how valuable you treat the utility or defensive choices above. If you are running content where you do not need the extra utility or defensive points, these should be used by default for the damage they provide, especially in pure single target.

4.

PvP Talents (War Mode) for Shadow Priest

In the open world, you can go into "War Mode." Enabling War Mode provides the following benefits:

  • PvP talents enabled in the outdoor world.
  • 10%+ increase in World Quest rewards at maximum level.
  • 10%+ more experience gained while leveling.
  • Earn Conquest Points, which can reward gear every week.

With the benefits of enabling War Mode for leveling and PvE content, it is recommended enabling the feature to maximize your leveling and rewards at maximum level. However, you will make yourself available for open-world PvP, and the possibility of being "ganked" while leveling or doing World Quests exists.

4.1.

Shadow Priest War Mode Talents

In this section, we will rank the PvP talents best for leveling and doing solo / small group PvE content. Below is a ranking of Shadow Priest-specific PvE talents.

4.1.1.

Shadow Priest PvP Talents

  • Catharsis Icon Catharsis is a great boost to damage in the open world if you find yourself in solo content or 1v1s.
  • Driven to Madness Icon Driven to Madness gives you your cooldown back faster for better uptime.
  • Psyfiend Icon Psyfiend can be a nice talent if you are okay with another active ability; otherwise, Void Volley Icon Void Volley is a good backup.
