First, as another poster mentioned, change the orbs to ravens. Shadow priests are not shaman, and the raven effect of the onslaught raven priests is way sweeter (and looks way cooler) than having a shaman-like dark orb.Second, I like the idea of using the shadow ravens with mind blast similar to how ret pallies will be using holy power with templar's verdict. Add to the talent "Improved Mind Blast" and effect that mirrors Templar's Verdict: 1 raven = 30% SP damage as added damage, 2 ravens = 110% of spellpower added as damage, 3 ravens = 225% of spellpower as added damage.

There ya go, Pyromelter. Whether the percentages you suggest would be final or not, what you suggest sounds simpler to explain as well as useful. Every new mechanic doesn't have to be a forgettable passive or a management chore.As far as the raven graphics, there's been a template in the game since Naxx 60. Take the ghostly ravens from Atiesh and make them swirl around the priest's head instead of around a stick that nobody can get anymore. How hard would that be?

We're also not Scarlet Onslaught.

Okay, good point, the face-melting shadow priest players characters are not the scarlet onslaught.You guys should look at least as cool as them though. http://www.blogcdn.com/www.wow.com/media/2010/04/raven.jpgBTW, changing the numbers on a talent like this would be a perfect "knob" for blizzard to use to either increase or decrease spriest dps.

@themark0fevil: And where is it written that the Scarlet Onslaught has a monopoly on ravens?
