@Fox Van Allen"More important than the raw numbers are the relative numbers: Shadow priests are, at least in theory, the strongest of the hybrid DPS classes. (Take that, Tyler Caraway.) We're still performing behind most of the pure damage classes. Especially hunters. The big, stupid jerks."Im sure Tyler and Frostheim will want to speak with you in private, probably in a tavern... :PAnd a great article Fox, thank you.

The main issue I see when playing shadow is we are at the bottom of the dps charts when it comes to aoe. I feel they need to buff our aoe since you can find all other aoe classes pulling at least 5k about shadow. I have even seen a boomkin in a 10 man with 1/2 pve/pvp gear pull almost 60k aoe damage. That is just sickening. We had a great aoe and they nerfed it in a major way yet leaving all other class aoe alone respectively. Either buff it or nerd aoe across the board to "balance" the classes.

Except that, according to the graph, Shadow Priests AREN'T the best of the hybrid classes. Paladins and Warriors are both ahead of them on the simulationcraft chart. (Paladin = Tank/Heal/DPS, Warrior = Tank/DPS)
