    I'm happy we get buffed. However, this looks so much like a kneejerk last minute buff that may make us too strong on multi-doting. Hope if that happens, SWP won't get nerfed to ground...

    It's a <5k dps buff for 100% uptime on a target - for a 2 target council fight (where you can maintain 100% uptime on both) - you gain less than 5k dps for that cleave damage (so, noticeably better than we were, but affliction locks - even nerfed - are still going to laugh at us). I don't think the risk of it over-buffing us is a concern

    Im surprised that they applied a buff to SW : P given the potential synergy with the Lei Shen trinket.

    Not that im unhappy, but for a "balancing act" buff, I would have thought VT would have been the candidate if any

    Why would they do this? shadow's are so over powered already. Time to cancel the sub.... again

    If you are refering to PvP, this is not gonna change much for that since what make shadow so good in PvP is lining up DP with 3 orbs + mindbender + silence with dots rolling + mindblast. So this will have no impact whatsover PvPwise..

    Shadow is very strong pvp, I play mage so if I cried hard enough and other mages cry hard enough we could get this buff reverted in a similar way we get our nerfs reverted.

    Think you got the wrong forum, you're ment to be in the Warlock forum complaining about them, Mages hate Locks not Priests.

    Man this makes me a lil happy. I just made a shadowpriest(1-90) a week ago, and fell in love with it in pvp, but the pve side was lacking. But I might try raiding now if this brings up the dps to average xD

    Affliction has not being nerfed in the multi dot department^^, only single target damage was nerfed and not that much tbh, blizzard only made locks chose another talent(which was op true, but still).

    Does that mean, if mana isn't a problem, that we should start SW:P'ing on multi-dots fight, before VT?

    Not nearly enough to make us compete in single target. don't get too excited, it won't make big diff
