Belt of Blasting is quite expensive, but it's well worth it. You won't replace it for a long time (if at all, depending on how far into raiding you progress.) Shadowpriest.com rates it as the best belt for shadow priests until Hyjal and the 4th best belt in-game. You might want a backup belt with stamina before stepping into T5 raids, but 99% of the time you'll be SO glad you dished out the cash for that Belt of Blasting.As for legs, I have to disagree: If you have badges to spend on legs, get Pantaloons of Arcane Annihilation. Spell haste (contrary to popular belief) is quite useful to spriests and gets better as your spell damage increases. (At 1400 spell damage, simulations show haste as being point-for-point equally effective as spell damage in increasing dps) Again, shadowpriest.com rates these legs as best until Hyjal and 4th best in-game, whereas Legwraps of Sweltering Flame are rated #7. The best part is that the Pantaloons of Arcane Annihilation cost 25 less badges!

Haste with low damage is a recipe for chain potting and OOM though.Given the overall list the recommended legs are probably the best bet after spellstrike. By the time you have the 1300-1400 damage necessary for haste to be worth it you'll have the 100 badges to buy new pants, and at that level you're almost certainly the sort who doesn't mind swapping an uber epic for another uber epic to match changing itemization needs.
