    About the author
    This guide is written by Drye, a prominent theorycrafter and guide writer for Shadow Priests and applicant in vodka. He has been a moderator on HowtoPriest for multiple years and was an Expert/Auditor for the now-deprecated SentryTotem. Drye has been Mind Blasting bosses since 2005.

    Spec Overview
    Shadow is a spec that has both great single target and multi target possibilities. It currently one of the only classes that has its own specs within it’s self. Playing Clarity of Power excels at great single target damage, insane aoe, as well as one of the most effective executes in the game. Being able to switch to Auspicious Spirits allows for great multi dot capability, high moveability, and the ability to build up and burst on a target.

    Single Target: Auspicious Spirits
    1. Devouring Plague when possible, having 3 or more orbs.

    2. Keep Mind Blast and Shadow Word: Death on cool down.

    3. Make sure to use Halo/Cascade optimally with adds/aoe phases. Don’t forget to position yourself at optimal casting range. Refer to boss guide/Aoe section per what ability to use.

    4. Shadowfiend/Mindbender are used on cooldown. If you know you wont be able to fit in a second cast make sure you use these cooldowns with Pot/Lust/Trinket procs for best results.

    5. Shadow Word: Pain all possible targets, if the target is going to die quickly don’t dot them. Play smart, if you can’t get more than a few dot ticks, it’s not worth it. Remember you are dotting targets to get Shadow Word: Pain crit ticks to generate orbs.

    6. Keep Repudiation of War debuff on your main target. Don’t let it drop.

    6. Maintain Vampiric Touch on your main target(s). Don’t waste GCD’s putting VT on targets if you can use a GCD for the above abilities.

    7. If you have time when not casting the above priority list, cast Mind Flay, Mind Spike or Insanity

    Advanced Rotation
    • Be aware of how many targets have SW:p ticking on them and how many Shadowy Apparitions are out.

    • Maintain the uptime on Item - Priest T17 Shadow 4P Bonus as much as possible. With tracking SA’s and Mind Blast CD you never want to cap on orbs. Wasting orbs is a significant DPS loss.

    • Mind blast on CD when you DP to get the most out of Item - Priest T17 Shadow 2P Bonus

    7. Proceed with Priority List

    Single Target: Clarity of Power
    One of the most important things to note for CoP, is that you always get 3 GCD’s in between Mind Blasts. Optimizing those three GCD’s is the key to playing CoP well. While over 100% haste, you can fit 2 MS into 1 MB CD.

    Execute Priority List

    * You want to make sure you don’t have dots up on your main target that you are casting Shadow Word: Death on your target below 20%. It’s a dps loss to Shadow Word: Death more than two times on your target if they have dots on them. Try to time it so this doesn’t happen.

    1. Devouring Plague when possible, having 3 or more orbs.

    2. Keep Mind Blast and Shadow Word: Death on cool down.

    3. Keep Repudiation of War debuff on your main target. Don’t let it drop.

    4. If more than one target, keep Shadow Word: Pain and Vampiric Touch on other targets.

    5. Use Insanity as a filler. Shouldn’t ever run into a situation where you can’t cast Insanity as filler when everything is on cooldown.

    AoE: Auspicious Spirits

    Whenever you know adds are going to be incoming, you need to make sure you position yourself correctly to maximize Halo or Cascade. These two spells are a big portion of your damage and maximizing their potential is very important. The following sections are priorities you should keep in mind based on how adds are grouped as well as the health of those targets.



    If adds are spread out use Cascade and apply dots.
    •If adds are going to die quickly and are spread out, it’s better to Cascade and keep up your single target rotation. Snipe Shadow Word: Death whenever possible on low health adds.

    • If adds have a decent amount of health and are spread out, try to dot all of them with Shadow Word: Pain. You shouldn’t need to cast Vampiric Touch unless it’s a cleave rotation such as Iron Maidens. You will be using higher priority abilities over VT in this case, mainly spamming Devouring Plague into your main target.

    • As a general rule of thumb, if SW:p doesn’t tick down to at least 50% of it’s duration, it’s not worth it to put up.

    If adds are grouped together use Halo and Mind Sear/Insanity
    • Make sure you position yourself at 25 yards from where the adds are going to spawn. If your guild has a Death Knight and you know the adds are going to be gripped, make sure you are positioned around where they will be gripped to.

    Mind Sear deals initial damage on cast. If you recast Mind Sear after the 2nd tick, the initial damage portion is reset and you can recast it to gain that additional damage. Try to maximize this! If you spam refresh, this won’t reset the initial damage hit.

    • Have orbs going into an aoe phase. Don’t waste orbs right before you go into a phase that requires aoe or right before adds spawn. Maximize Mind Sear Insanity uptime. Try to refresh Shadow Word: Pain on your main target(s) before so you will gain orbs for Mind Sear Insanity uptime. If the Insanity buff is about to expire make sure to recast Mind Sear to get an additional full cast off and extend the duration of Mind Sear Insanity.

    • If possible Cast Shadow Word: Death to increase orb generation and Mind Sear Insanity uptime.

    AoE: Clarity of Power

    Whenever you know adds are going to be incoming, you need to make sure you position yourself correctly to maximize Halo or Cascade. These two spells are a big portion of your damage and maximizing their potential is very important. The following sections are priorities you should keep in mind based on how adds are grouped as well as the health of those targets.

    If adds are spread out use Cascade and apply dots.
    • If adds are going to die quickly and spread out, its better to just cascade and and keep up your single target rotation.

    • If adds have a decent amount of health and are spread out, try to dot all of them with both Shadow Word: Pain and Vampiric Touch.

    • If adds are spread out and have a medium amount of health, simply apply Shadow Word: Pain to all the adds.

    • As a general rule of thumb, if SW:p doesn’t tick down to at least 50% of it’s duration, it’s not worth it to put up.

    If adds are grouped together use Halo and Mind Sear/Insanity
    • Make sure you position yourself at 25 yards from where the adds are going to spawn. If your guild has a Death Knight and you know the adds are going to be gripped, make sure you are positioned around where they will be gripped to.

    Mind Sear has initial damage on cast. Try to maximize this, if you recast Mind Sear after the 2nd tick the initial damage portion is reset and you can recast to gain that additional damage. If you spam refresh, this won’t reset the initial damage hit.

    • Have orbs going into an aoe phase. Don’t waste orbs right before you go into a phase that requires aoe or right before adds spawn. Maximize Mind Sear Insanity uptime. Cast Mind Blast when off CD, you should be able to sustain aoe for 3 DP casts if you start at 5 orbs. If the Insanity buff is about to expire make sure to recast Mind Sear to get an additional full cast off and extend the duration of Mind Sear Insanity.

    • If possible Cast Shadow Word: Death to increase orb generation and Mind Sear Insanity uptime.

    Talents Cheat Sheet

    Level 15: Defensive Tree
    Spectral Guise can be used to deter yourself from certain targeted types of mechanics. Angelic Bulwark is my personal go to choice if there’s nothing to spectral guise.

    Level 30: Movement
    Body and Soul easiest to use compared to the micromanagement of feathers.

    Level 45: Multi Purpose Fillers *
    Surge of Darkness is generally used when you have the ability to keep dots up on secondary targets and movement is involved. Mindbender is better used when you have very high levels of crit and will be GCD capped when playing Auspicious Spirits. Insanity is generally your go to talent for Clarity of Power. It allows you to “dotweave” and nuke down priority targets. generally chosen when Single target and low movement.

    Level 60: PvP talents – Rarely used in PvE
    Dominate Mind is only useful for Blast furnace this tier.

    Level 75: Damage Enhancing Abilities *
    Twist of Fate – Passive that can be abused with orb sniping and killing adds. Go to talent.

    Level 90: AoE Ability *
    Cascade is used when there are spread out targets. Halo is used when targets are grouped up and AoE’d.

    Level 100: Play Style *
    Clarity of Power Single Target/AoE – Auspicious Spirits Multi Target/Cleave

    * Mastering when to choose the correct ability in this tier is crucial for maximizing shadow’s potential.

    Advanced Talents

    Level 15: Desperate Prayer, Spectral Guise, Angelic Bulwark

    Desperate Prayer
    Off gcd, can activate whenever you want. Can be used as a reactive defensive cd. If you know damage is incoming, you can combine with a health pot and heal all the way back up after dipping low.

    Spectral Guise
    Can be used to disjoint targeted mechanics. Helpful on fights like maidens where you can spectral guise and save a raid cd/stacking point instead.

    Angelic Bulwark
    This is my go to talent choice for this tier when spectral guise isn’t able to be used.

    Level 30: Body and Soul, Angelic Feather, Phantasm

    Body and Soul
    Very useful when your healing priests know not to shield you. Combining this with the Reflective shield talent allows Power Word: Shield to be one of the best abilities in shadows toolkit. Combined it’s a movement increase, damage reduction, and does damage if you take boss specific damage.

    Angelic Feather
    More tricky to use than body and soul. Not a reliable movement speed increase when used near other players. Does have a higher movement increase than Body and Soul, high risk high reward type of talent.

    Phantasm
    Doesn’t serve a purpose in PvE, more of a PvP talent. Other options of this tier are better choices.

    Level 45: Surge of Darkness, Mindbender, Insanity

    Surge of Darkness
    You want to pick this when there are adds to cleave or high amounts of movement. If playing CoP, you want to keep your main target clear of dots and off dot targets and pummel your main target with procs. You want to save procs for when you are moving. You can prioritize other abilities over SoD procs unless the proc is going to wear off, then you want to use the procs. You can use SoD procs to better position yourself as well.

    Mindbender
    Insanity and SoD are generally better choices than Mind Bender. There will come a time when choosing AS, that you are GCD locked and unable to pick SoD, where mind bender will shine. Mind bender synergizes really well with PI.

    Insanity
    The go to talent when playing Clarity of Power, allows you to dotweave. Strong for low movement and single target fights. The ability now has it’s own buff that is independent to Devouring Plague uptime. Now usable with Mind Sear.

    Level 60: Void Tendrils, Psychic Scream, Dominate Mind

    Void Tendrils
    Some times works on adds in PvE. Can be used to group adds together to help CC.

    Psychic Scream
    AoE fear around the player.

    Dominate Mind
    Allows you to take over a humanoid. Can be used as a crowd control if needed.

    Level 75: Twist of Fate, Power Infusion, Shadowy Insight

    Twist of Fate
    The go to talent this tier. Synergizes very well with out execute/Shadow Word: Death. Try to maximize it’s potential by keeping dots up on low targets or sniping shadow word: Death. Being able to utilize it;s high uptime in fights is crucial.

    Power Infusion
    Synergizes very well with Mind Bender. Can be used on fights where there are periods of down time that you wont be attacking anything. Possible talent to use with Auspicious spirits.

    Shadowy Insight
    This talent bumps heads with Clarity of Power and Auspicious Spirits. It messes up your dot weaving rotation when playing Clarity of power. When playing AS, You have very few free GCD’s that it wouldn’t utilize it’s potential. Very possible this talent and Glyph of Mind Harvest become a strong duo at some point in the future.

    Level 90: Cascade, Divine Star, Halo

    Cascade
    Does most optimal dmg from far range. You want to make sure any time that adds are spread out or that live long enough, so that every mob gets bounced to.

    Divine Star
    This talent doesn’t really serve much purpose. You always want to choose one of the other two. It’s better to use any filler at this point over this ability. It has no Niche.

    Halo
    Provides great burst aoe. This talent does its most optimal dps when standing at 25yrds. Using Halo Pro or a range tracker is the best way to maximize this talent.

    Level 100: Clarity of Power, Void Entropy, Auspicious Spirits

    Clarity of Power
    Changes your rotation up significantly. Great for single target, quick add switching, and AoE. Does require you to learn how to dot weave and how to maximize every GCD in between MB’s CD.

    Void Entropy
    Unless playing because you like the play style this talent provides, there is no reason to play it. It’s weaker in every possible situation than AS or CoP. It needs a mechanics change or to be buffed so far that it;s broken to ever be used competitively.

    Auspicious Spirits
    Requires a high amount of crit in order to be sufficient. Great for fights with high movement, constant adds, or cleave potential. Keeping track of your shadow orbs and shadowy apparitions is crucial to mastering AS.

    Glyphs

    Mandatory
    Glyph of Reflective Shield
    One of Shadow Priests best abilities in your kit. When using with Body and Soul, this ability does damage, protects you from damage, and increases your movement speed.

    Personal Choice
    Glyph of Vampiric Embrace
    Pretty standard. Pairing this ability with Halo or Cascade can really pump out a lot of healing. If used and timed correctly is effectivly one of the best raid cool downs.

    Glyph of Restored Faith
    Allows you to position yourself in a more optimal spot for dpsing so that when you need to group up and don’t have to waste the time or GCD’s while moving.

    Glyph of Fade
    Great for fights that have timed incoming damage.

    Situational
    Glyph of Mind Flay
    Good for fights where lots of movement is occurring. Glyph tends to be less useful for CoP/AS due to low uptime on Mind Flay.

    Glyph of Shadow Word: Death
    Can use as a GCD for moving

    Glyph of Silence
    Great for fights that require a lot of interupts

    Auspicious Spirits Stats

    Intellect > Spell Power > Crit > Haste > Multistrike > Versatility > Mastery

    This is the recommended gearing path. Other than gathering an off set for strictly stand still fights, there’s no point in gearing for only CoP

    * 25% crit is a safe number to be at in order to play Auspicious Spirits competitively. You can play at lower levels of crit if you have Goren Soul Repository.

    Intellect increases Spell power and increases the scaling of our abilities.

    Mastery Increases the damage of Mind Blast, Mind Spike, and Mind flay

    Critical Strike increases the chance to critically hit with abilities.

    Haste increases attack speed and reduces Mind Blast’s cool down.

    Versatility increases all damage and healing done, and decreases all damage taken.

    Multistrike causes abilities to have a chance to hit a second and a third time, each dealing 30% of the initial damage.

    Rings: Enchant Ring - Gift of Critical Strike
    Cloak: Enchant Cloak - Gift of Critical Strike

    Potion: Draenic Intellect Potion
    Flask: Greater Draenic Intellect Flask

    Clarity of Power Stats

    Intellect > Spell Power > Haste > Multistrike > Crit > Mastery* > Versatility

    * Mastery only excels at low movement and single target scenarios, any movement or additional adds drastically lowers the value of mastery. There’s not really a reason unless you have a Gruul set to ever gem/enchant mastery over going crit for easy switching. If you mainly play CoP, I suggest going haste or multistrike gems and enchants. You never want to go for the haste weapon enchant while playing CoP because the proc decreases in haste as it’s time goes on, which will mess up your dotweaving rotation and give you a dps loss.

    Intellect increases Spell power and increases the scaling of our abilities.

    Mastery Increases the damage of Mind Blast, Mind Spike, and Mind flay

    Critical Strike increases the chance to critically hit with abilities.

    Haste increases attack speed and reduces Mind Blast’s cool down.

    Versatility increases all damage and healing done, and decreases all damage taken.

    Generalized tips that will help improve your play

    *Work in progress*

    – Minimize your movement on fights. Shadow suffers the most out of any range class when moving. Once you get familiar with fights try to position yourself in spots that you can minimize your movement. If you are going to be running for long distances, learn to stutter step casts. Move a little get a cast in, move a lil more.

    – Make sure you are sniping SW:D when you can. If you know adds are going to spawn and you can get a SW:D off, make sure you try. Increasing orb regeneration is huge for shadow. DP is a big chunk of our damage, so maximizing your orb regeneration is crucial.

    -Make sure you are using the correct talents to optimize each fight. Shadow only gets one dps spec so you need to make sure you are making the most of your talents.

    – Learning how to aoe is pretty crucial for a shadow priest. Learning how and when to dot or mind sear is huge. Will the adds be living for a full dot to tick through? Are there many adds? Are they all grouped up? These are the questions you want to be asking your self each time you are on a fight like protectors. If adds will live for a decent amount of time, dot them with VT/SW:p. Are they going to die some what fast and are not grouped? SW:p them then mind sear when they get grouped. If they have very little HP and grouped, Mind Sear. Learning when to do this will help you out a lot on those non single target fights.

    Useful Addon’s

    Weak Auras2
    Simply put, weak auras2 is the best addon in the game. It’s so customizable that it’s the only addon you need. You can make it track your dots, track boss health, cool downs. There’s no limit to what you can make and how you want something to appear.

    HaloPro
    The most accurate addon to track your range of your self to your target. Great for halo/cascade utilization.

    Gnosis
    The only accurate latency tracker on a cast bar. Allows for better Mind Flay clipping.
