Phantasm needed a nerf, and oh well, the whole universe agree with that.
But the burst is gone, that's not very hard to figure out. We may deal SOME sudden pressure and that's all (you very understiamting the combination of DP front + spike gly nerfs)
Void Shift gonna be nerfed for shadow.
What is left is MD, wich i'm not native, won't stay as strong for shadow; they gonna do some kid of purge-like nerf.
Btw they are not the nerfs per se, but this going to be a really different toon, there's no other way to look at the changes.
I did stop my warlock because i didn't want to be carried just because of blood fear, should i go with shadow just for the once-in-6-minutes- shifts and MDs?
With the upcoming healing nerfs jumping out of shadowform just to cast anything but PoM renews and shields is a waste of time.
I really liked this sudden bursts from shadow, it was the fun factor for me. It was not gigantic (don't even dare to compare us as the usual bursty specs...) but not tied to cc, impossible to predict, and now its gone.
As such, my shadowpriest he's benched as well :<
