I don't know why my shadow dps isn't better. (I'm in t9/heroic stuff; I don't raid.) I barely crack 2500 and it's pretty pathetic. what sort of rotations do you guys use?

Full 10, twice the speed of mind flay = adequate damage.

Unfortunately T9 was a bad tier for Shadow Priests, it did a lot of damage to our image as a decent DPS class, so that's the first issue.Secondly, our DPS doesn't really ramp up to solid 6-8K numbers until you have at least 25% haste and 30% crit. After that it's just make sure Shadow Weaving is fully procced, dot the mobs up and flay away.

Well, first, if you're not running raids, don't expect raid-level damage.In your case, the issue is probably finding a workable rotation for short-lived foes. Running a full rotation is fine when you're facing Loken or Cyanigosa, but if it's a middling 35k HP mob, a full rotation is just a waste -- some DoTs won't even tick by the time they're up.Give a shortened rotation of VT -> MB -> MF a try. There's no "right" answer here without knowing how long each fight will last, but some slight modifications can probably get you to 3500.
