So, a few weeks back when I decided to play my Priest through Beta as Shadow I started to look around for information on the differences between Live Shadow and Beta Shadow. It's easy to miss things while browsing through talent calculators or spell databases and the deluge of new data that arrives with each new patch is a little overwhelming. Whilst I didn't really find the info I was looking for, it occurred to me that there must be quite a few people out there who are either in the same boat, or who simply don't enjoy playing through beta content in the same way that I do. So, I set about at the weekend recording a 20 minute talk-through of most of the spell changes and talents relevant to Shadow as it stands in beta build 15699.
While it's my first attempt at something like this, and I do hum, haw and mince my words a lot, I'm happy enough with it to throw it out there into the big bad world in the hopes that someone finds the information useful. Voila!
I recommend you watch on 720 or 1080p quality - UI text may be difficult to read otherwise.
Update: A section on Glyphs was requested, and I'm only too happy to oblige!
Especially if I already have one recorded that I dropped from the original video to cut down on length.
I welcome any questions, comments or mockery you have. If there's sufficient interest, I may talk more about future patches and other aspects of the beta.
You can find details of the background music in the YouTube description - it's all freely available.
