The truth is that LOLSmite (aka Disc/Holy DPS) is as good solo leveller in the current game as the SPriest, and has less mana issues.

The other truth is that now all of the "Smite DPS talents" are absorbed into more useful (healing) talents. There's only one (Searing Light) that has no additional affects, and isn't too necessary.The changes to personal DPS have made Shadow a powerhouse when you have access to the full range of talents. The only time this is "True" is when you're leveling, when you do not have access to gear or certain talents. 100% increased crit damage, crit on Mindflay, increased spellpower on crit, DoTs "crit'ing" all contribute to a large amount of damage. On Beta I was getting 1700+ DPS and 160mp5 from replenishment in the PvP gear.With Shadow, you provide more for a raid/group than any Smite Priest could. Replenishment/Misery are far more useful to a raid than the "possiblechanceofmaybegettingacrackat offhealing." Stop spouting this "LOLSMITE" rhetoric, please!

To what mana issues are you referring? The only time I've heard of mana issues with Shadow is when you put all your dots on each mob and don't AoE fear.Otherwise, with Dispersion and a rotation with minimal waste, you will never have mana issues.

Hey brique... please read the comments you reply to.You said"With Shadow, you provide more for a raid/group than any Smite Priest could. Replenishment/Misery are far more useful to a raid than the "possiblechanceofmaybegettingacrackat offhealing.""but the original post said"The truth is that LOLSmite (aka Disc/Holy DPS) is as good solo leveller"You can comfortably argue that shadow is a better levelling spec, but don't bring group mechanics, and even less so raid mechanics which only come into effect after the levelling process, when you respond to someone talking specifically about solo levelling.
