My shadow priest is at 33 and I use SO much mana. I haven't bothered to leave Stranglethorn so I haven't gotten SW:D or the glyph. I remember getting yelled at for auto-attacking Hogger in Stockades? Why would I do such a silly thing? I had no mana AT ALL. I decided that auto-attacking while waiting for enough mana to cast a spell was more dps than standing around waiting for the mana. Why do I say this? Hogger is a short fight and that shows how fast you'll run out of mana if you keep dpsing.

The cheapest Spirit Tap glyph is about 134 gold on my server. I think I'll just stay oom for a little while longer ;)

@Narshe Now I do but at the time it was faster to do a quick right-click on Hogger than opening my spellbook to use it. It's now sitting on the keybind I use for interrupts on my main though.

The more people are in Hogger's melee range, the more the healer has to heal: http://www.wowhead.com/spell=86620 So it was a good thought in theory, just not really applicable to a boss who does a melee range AoE ;)

Find a friendly scribe and give him/her a stack of the cheapest cataclysm herb. He/she can mill them into blackfallow inks, which can be traded for the correct materials for the spirit tap glyph. The price floor for glyphs in my opinion is the price of a stack of cinderbloom (generally the cheapest cataclysm herb).

I'm in the process of leveling a shadow priest. I'm at level 66 and finally free of mana problems. Even with the glyph, shadow priest still have a very bad mana regen and have to choose between doing crappy dps(only use Mind Flay) or doing decent dmg but having to stop and drink after each fight(which would never work since people in low level dungeons just chain pull from start to finish).Blizzard should provide with some mana regen for shadow priests at low level. My suggestion: giving shadow priests a weaker version of shadowfiend that'd be replaced once Shadowfiend were learned.
