    Shadow priest BIS weapons

    So I have been looking at this site : www.wowbestinslot.com

    According to them, the Ti'Tahk staff that grants you a haste proc isn't BIS for Shadow priests.

    Your thoughts about this, I am currently using the DW dagger that poisons the target, how big of a dps increase/loss will it be to replace the dagger with the staff, and what are you opinions, which weapon is BIS for spriests.

    (I don't have Teracgosa and I am not on the quest so that's out of the discussion)

    I think the Haste bonus is much smaller than static Haste on other weapons.

    Actually I thought that the proc does not apply to the wielder but I could be mistaken.

    Unless your Offhand that will be partnered with the Dagger completely sucks, the MH/OH combo is indeed better than Ti'tahk. The Haste proc is on a 45 second cooldown and the proc for your raid members often go awry onto pets and tanks instead. On a slightly more lazy note having yet another proc to keep track of is well... draining.

    If your guild is still going into FL I'd suggest doing the quest for the staff because its the BIS currently in game beating out a MH/OH combo by a lot. The quest is easy to pick up too because all you have to do is kill a mob inside FL.

    Other than that, Vagries of Time paired with the Ledger of Revolting Rituals is BIS beats out Visage of the Destroyer on values. These are all normal mode items btw.

    Even the first stage of the staff, we are not going in to Firelands, out of the discussion. I'm also gonna throw in a question about trinkets, like the shadowbolt trinkets proc is REALLY good but I am having issues with Insignia of the corrupted mind, I swapped it with volcano and it actually lowered my dps, the haste proc is good WHEN it is up, which is rare on a 5 min fight having procced 2 times during the fight.

    Deathwing staff is bis for 1 reason. (except for legendary)
    It buffs your raid.
    You give 3-5 of these staves to your casters/healers and you'll be swiming in haste procs.

    If you want the highest personal DPS increase its the dagger from Deathwing.

    Except the haste proc randomly goes to people and most of the time it goes to people who don't need it like tanks.

    Did a quick search on this, and the ICD on this is effectively 2 minutes. So 2 procs in a 5 minute fight is exactly right. It's half a Bloodlust, which is kinda cool, but a bit piss poor compared to the uptime on the still (almost godly) DMC: Volcano.

    However in summery it's exactly the same as the deal with Ti,tahk. It's yet another proc to keep an eye on, but the base Intellect makes it worth it. However when you get Will of Unbinding, you can shard your Insignia of the Corrupted Mind for all you'll care for it. Ti'tahk vs Rathrak+Ledger vs the other non-proc options is an arguement that can go on for a while. I'ld personally go for the Rathrak option still. ^_^

    Here is a list based on SimC.

    However it doesn't account for the haste other raid members get from the proc on the weapon.

    Use Ti'tahk if you want to buff your raid and aren't worried about your own DPS. It's still good for you, yes, but not as good as MH/OH or another staff/legendary obviously.

    Use something else if you want to maximize your own DPS. Honestly, it's something you'd want to talk to your raid leader about and make the decision yourself on what role you want in the raid.
