What on earth is that 87 Priest skill supposed to do?Spectral GuiseYour shadow blurs into the darkness, leaving your true form behind. As a shadow you are invisible, but remain in combat. Lasts 6 seconds or until your true form takes 3 direct attacks.I don't quite know what to make of it. A pvp escape?

It sounds like a poor man's Eye of Killrog. Unless you replace the shadow after six seconds, I'd almost thing it was a version of the mage's Invisibility.

Threat drop?I don't think threat is meant to be an important issue in MoP though, hmm...

Kind of looks like a mirror-image ability, but there's only one image, and your shadow body cannot be damaged. So yeah, I'd guess pvp escape and damage reduction cooldown as well as a pve threat drop (and damage reduction cd).Kind of maybe seems like a marriage of mirror image and dispersion.

Big raid damage effect coming up, pop defensive cooldowns...

This does seem a bit odd. The image that is in my mind is that for 6 seconds you are sort of untargetable (unless your "true form" is attacked)... but there are only three useful applications I can see for this:1) your body teleports to your shadow at the end of the effect making for a strange sort of escape tool.2) a really crappy eye of kilrogg as Razion mentioned (especially for a level 87 spell).3) a powerful ability that lets you be untargetable as you cast spells unless your true form is hit three times in a row.If it is the last, I can think of many amazing applications for this but primarily in pvp scenarios. For instance, you could strategically hide your body and jump in to a bunch of enemies and dot them up to your hearts content.
