Mar 31st 2010 11:38PM "Deadly Poison goes on the fast dagger, Instant Poison goes on the slow dagger"
I have always had the impression that for main hand / off hand you use slow / fast therefore deadly / instant? And you would never put instant in your main hand and deadly in your off.
With your white damage being so high, surely having the quick in your main hand and slow in your off wouldn't be optimal.
Someone please tell me if this is wrong, I can't find anywhere else that said quick/slow.
Mar 24th 2010 10:59PM Unchained magic is a pain but the joy of being shadow is you have both channeled and cast time spells.
Although the tool tip says "Using magic while afflicted with Unchained Magic will build up unstable energy, dealing 1999 to 2000 Arcane damage to the caster per spell cast, 5 sec after spellcasting ends" in actual fact, this will stack upon the first tick of mind flay and start decaying while you are still channeling MF.
After using your dispersion to absorb the really high stack you managed, you should try the following.
You should try your best to work your last cast as mind flay. This way the debuff will be 1-3s expired out of its 5sec duration depending on your haste and tier bonuses. You can then start casting either mind blast or vampiric touch when there is still 1s remaining, stopping your casting time for only 1 or 2 seconds. If you time it right, your spell cast for VT or MB will end just after the Instability expires and deals you damage, and start its stack again.
Working your mind flay around a 4-5 stack of instability will mean you only take around 8k damage (gotta love shadow form).
I don't mean to step on your toes Fox, but if you last cast is PW:Shield, you stand around twiddling your thumbs for 5 seconds when you could be doing damage.
Feb 25th 2010 10:14PM i want an overcloak to look like arthas' cloak out of culling of strath =D
Jan 27th 2010 10:04PM I have absolutely no problem with where spriests are sitting right now.
For the single target comment, i don't think u can say "we need more talents/glyphs for single focus damage" without being more specific. I wouldn't say no to more single target damage on "patchwerk" like fights where u plant ur shadowy feet in the ground and unleash but i dont honestly believe we need it, especially when on single target high movement fights, we kick most of the other dps in the teeth.
im happy with where we at (might even suggest that we are doing more than we should), now, if only i could get trinket upgrades........damn u illustration, i know i will still be using you in cata :|
Nov 23rd 2009 9:47PM id like to see larger sets, 5 pieces out of a possible 10 (not including weapon or trinket slots) seems trivial
or jewelery sets which had popped up in the past
or at least a reason to wear all 5 pieces of tier 9 triumph.
