Shadow priests share some characteristics with vampires (energy draining, mind control/mind soothe), but they're NOT traditional vampires. Perhaps if you have the problem this article discusses you can suggest they use a shadow priest to shift their characterization into the wow frame (which is the point of the article).Shadow priests do not suck blood. They do not sparkle in sunlight, nor do they burst into flames. They're priests of the dark side who use their iron will and religious backing to seduce, soothe and steal. They tell you to feel pain, and you will.

You're grossly misinformed.Bloodsucking was an outgrowth of the original energy-sucking concept. Shadow Priests are the most vampire-ish playables in the game.

I personally like the dreadlords and use them somewhat as an inspiration when RPing my shadow priest. He is somewhat of a trickster and manipulater who covets power and noteriety. Using dark magic to feed off his enemies, to empower himself and terrify those who oppose him is part of that.

So because Shadow Priests are more vampire-like than other classes, they must be vampires? That's like saying a Suburban is fuel-efficient because it's more efficient than a Hummer and a rocket ship.

The Definition of a vampire:Vampires are mythological or folkloric beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence (generally in the form of blood) of living creatures, regardless of whether they are undead or a living person.____________Based on that definition, thats exactly what vampires are.
