Spiritual Guidance: 5 things I want for shadow priests in Mists of Pandaria {WoW}

Mar 8th 2012 1:34AM PVP Shadow is forever the damned spec

Back in vanilla -> cataclysm, we had our talent tree. We weren't so bad - if you were shadow, you specced into the shadow tree - you got all the shadow stuff you needed.

A frost mage in that time would spec into their frost tree - but they would still get utility from their other DPS specs, such as blink and counterspell from arcane, or impact from fire.

Shadow doesn't have THAT, resulting in a lack of utility, because it's part of the only class in the game with TWO healing specs, as opposed to or 1. We simply have less utility because our class has always been focused as healing - shadow is that awkward component.

This difference is being made even bigger in MOP, where you can now freely pick between the three different specs, taking whats best for your role.

A warlock can take the BEST out of the 3, making for a deadly combo
A mage can take the BEST out of the 3, allowing for diverse and insane synchronization of talents
A rogue can take the BEST out of the 3, letting him create different play styles depending on how he feels

A priest has only one option. Am I going to take vow of unity? Perhaps divine star instead over archangel or maybe ill move faster while i'm not being attacked so I can be trained by melee..

We will forever lack utility.

Feb 2nd 2012 5:12PM My shadow priests out there - don't be discouraged! We have one of the best specs for arena. Utilize your dots while you watch your placement. Placing yourself in arenas is the most important parts. Don't mindspike unless you're freecasting and the opponent is under 40% health.
