    Shadow Priest Help

    Good Morning,

    Ive been playing a healing priest for a very long time and have almost never played a Spriest. I respecced to shadow and have been working on my DPS for 25 man and with single target dps can not get over 55k.

    Is this the normal DPS on endgame single target around 500 Ilvl? Any assistance would be great thanks.

    I dont actively raid anymore I am more of a pvp guy, But from my experience it's true singlw target dps is lacking.

    The best thing and probb already know this, is to use Insanity, stack haste to get those extra ticks and make sure u get up atleast 3 full mindflays off the target with insanity up.

    For the rest.. idk is there even more.. except for the standard things?

    Your not the only 1 who sees this problem.

    Goodluck anyway.

    When I armory'd you just now you have two healing trinkets on, missing 3 enchants and have a lot of incorrect gems (for shadow).

    Get the first haste breakpoint (8k one) if possible - http://howtopriest.com/viewtopic.php?t=1748 -- keep this link, will help you later.
    There's a gemming guide halfway down this page - http://howtopriest.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1701

    There's some really great/helpful discussions on mmo priest forums as well as howtopriest, check this out too - http://warcraft.twintop-tahoe.com/
    I suggest thoroughly reading through all of those, practicing, and then coming back with more questions, there's really a lot of info available. good luck.

    Thank you all, yes i do have the healing trinkets and i kinda reforged and regemmed off of ASKMRROBOT still trying to transition but i thought 55k was a little lacking even for what gear i had. Thank you for the links ill do some more research. Appreciate the responses

    If geared/gemmed/enchanted properly you'd probably push out around 70k- this is of course assuming that you aren't locked in to your rotation. If you are locked in to your rotation and doing it all correctly, it should be higher. But anyone with proper gear/gems/enchants/reforge should be pulling more with that kind of gear.
