Quibbles and Bits:As a former raiding Shadow Priest, I can tell you that in wrath, basically, Shadow Priests don't raid/get invited to raid/have any place in raids.My former main sits on a shelf because:1.) SPriest still are only in the 90% of 'average' DPS as we gear up. 2.) SPriest go OOM. And there are a lot of long fights in the current raiding scheme.3.) SPriest replenishment buff costs more mana to cast than it returns, so it is no help in fixing #2 above.4.) Spriests are very fragile, stacking spirit (and MP5) and SP instead of Sta.With the exception of the MC fight in Naxx25, what compelling reason is there to bring a gimped DPSer to a fight? Even the 'off heal' argument is flawed, as Shadow priest heals are slow and very mana inefficient.So, remove Spriest from your Statistics. We're broken.

I don't know when your information is from, but it seems pretty baseless. I'm geared with about 50/50% Nax 10/25 gear. I don't have mana issues. Even in long fights, if I half pay attention I will MAYBE need to pot if my fiend gets jacked or something. As long as my ghetto computer has a frame rate higher than 3, I compete with DPS classes that aren't busted and destined for nerfs. And if you aren't handicapped, you will A) move out of the fire/rockshards/cleave whatever to not get yourself killed, and B) Be using both VT and MB constantly to maximize your DPS anyway, so the replenish buff is just gravy. The only time I have ever had issues getting into raids are VOA class runs when they need a priest healer.
