I think this change has a lot to do with the fact that veiled shadows got moved to the first tier, making it accessable to any spec. this lets us remain the masters of the shadowfiend, but also lets other specs reduce their shadowfiend and fade cooldown.

I think this change has a lot to do with bringing Crit up to par with Haste for Shadow Priests. Blizz may want to avoid the current situation where every piece of gear with "Hit & Haste" is vastly superior to pieces with "Hit & Crit"

"I think this change has a lot to do with bringing Crit up to par with Haste for Shadow Priests. Blizz may want to avoid the current situation where every piece of gear with "Hit & Haste" is vastly superior to pieces with "Hit & Crit""---Except that this scales (roughly) equally well to Haste as it does to Crit. Add 1% haste, get 1% more ticks of Mind Flay to have a chance at critting. Add 1% crit, 1% more of mind flay ticks will crit. This changes nothing about our relative preference for haste over crit.If they wanted to emphasize crit only, they would need to do something like "When the initial hit from your Improved Devouring Plague crits..." Which, unless it was so overpowered that we spam it for the proc, would still only have a chance to proc when DP ends, which is unaffected by haste in the new model.
