It still seems wrong that so many "proc buffs" are becoming auras, but Shadow Priests still have to deal with the horrible talent that is Shadow Weaving. It there is more than 15 between fights, which is common, then our dps drops 10%. If there is a phase in a fight where you don't dps, our dps drops 10%. If you are stunned or have to do something not dps related in a fight, our dps drops 10%. If the mobs don't live long, our dps is penalised.This is a horrible mechanic that blizzard seems to love.

Shadow Priest single target DPS takes too long to stack up to full potency, and is so fiddly that keeping it stacked optimally is nearly impossible during movement fights.Now, our mind sear DPS is great for trash packs of 3 or more targets. WTB single target DPS that doesn't require 3 dots, a stacking debuf, a channeled spell, and sacrificing a rooster by the dark of the moon to maintain.

"...and sacrificing a rooster by the dark of the moon to maintain."Well. We ARE shadow priests.
