If you're still trying to find your Shadow Priest rhythm, you might consider trying Facemelter Reloaded: http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/facemelterIt helps immensely with learning the priority system by letting you know stuff like, "Okay, go ahead and start casting Vampiric Touch now so it won't drop off," or "Mana is low, go ahead and Shadow Word: Death if it's safe."I've been raiding as a Shadow Priest since Vanilla (yes, I was a raiding Shadow Priest before Burning Crusade made it cool... or viable), and I still find tools like Facemelter to be useful. Shadow Priesting is simple to learn but difficult to master because we don't have set rotation. The priority system can be downright painful to learn if you're used to other DPS classes.

I would argue that shadow priesting is one of the specs in the game that is difficult to learn as well as difficult to master. And I like your suggestion as well as the one above on facemelter, my post below recommends that the player set up addons. As I'm not a shadow priest, I wouldn't know specific addons (but I know what it means to play a complicated dps class), so I'm glad you guys recommended what looks to be a good one.
