    best alliance shadow priest race?

    Hai, i was just wondering between Human, Draenei and Worgen.
    i was guessing worgen since i have no real trouble with haste and hit (being above haste breakpoint) and close enough to hit cap, thoughts? suggestions?

    Gnome? 5% more int

  3. #3
    Expansive Mind - passive
    Mana increased by 5%.

  4. #4
    Yea, gnomes only give mana, not Int. Big distinction.

    I believe Worgen would technically sim the highest. 1% crit is more stat heavy than 1% to hit (Draenei), and no other race gives any dps increase.

    Ignore the racials. If your class can be a gnome. Choose gnome. Forever

    Crit is our lowest stat.
    1% hit is blessing in terms of being able to spend it on other rating stats. Trust me. I'm a Draenei Spriest and 100 rating (while not gamebreaking) you can invest in Haste is a godsend.
    Obviously that's my view on the matter but well

    I'd like to throw human in there. Although not as good as worgen/draenei when it comes to pure dps gain, you actually gain a fair bit of hit (around 0.5% hit) thanks to the human 3% spirit racial... while also getting Every Man For Himself!

    at certain haste points crit is the #1 secondary stat and haste is the worst. only simcraft can tell you what is what

    humans are the best imo, the trinket comes in too handy, the extra spirit adds up and both help pve and pvp

    All three are valid options really. I think it'll come down to what you feel appeals to you the most.

    PS. Male Draenei have THE best shoulderpieces of the entire Alliance. Just saying

    I'm pretty sure Necromantic Focus had a thing to do with this.

    for pure dps worgen>dreanei>human (1% crit is 180 rating ; 1% hit 104 that alone makes the 1% crit more valuable)

    and worgen got darkflight : pretty damn powerful for a class without a way to move faster

    crit is NEVER our "best" secondary stat...

    Worgen. You need a lot more crit rating to 1% crit than you need spirit to get 1% hit, so worgen pulls ahead.

    OT: Draenei. Worgen is the best with 2p T12, because Crit is a very powerful secondary stat with that bonus. However, that's old content, so Draenei is better.

    That's not weighing in Darkflight/Gift of the Naaru, though.
    I'm not a native English speaker, and yet, I don't suck at English. The argument "English is not my mother tongue" doesn't actually give you an excuse to do so.

    The difference is there but it's incredibly low. Just go with what feels right for you or the "active" ability you prefer (pvp trinket/sprint etc).

    I'm a female nightelf personally cause i think that's the alliance race that looks the best in a dress :P
