Hi, I just hit 90 on my Shadow Priest, and i've read the shadow guide but i since i havn't played the class before i still have a few unanswered questions, hope someone can help!
Question 1 Mind flay/Sear: Mind flay is the last priority in the single target rotation, but how bad is it really? if my mindblast/SW/shadowfiend/Halo comes off cooldown, do i finish channeling my current mindflay or do i quit right away or wait until the next tick and then stop casting? And what about when i have Insanity? Also on Mind Flay/Mind Sear, when i channel another mindflay right after the one im currently channeling, do I recast it after a certain tick or let it finish? (right now just queue them into eachother when they finish but i dont wanna gimp myself)
Question 2 Dots I havn't really played a true dot class before (mage only) so i've been thinking about this alot with the priest. Afaik SW:P>VT so i always cast SW:P first, which also makes them fall of roughly at the same time, but i've been thinking, do i let them fall off, or do i recast them when it fits me(right now i try recasting them at as late as possible without them falling off, but if i have 6 sec to go and my last mindblast before devouring plague comes is coming off cooldown i recast them before so i can channel insanity with dots ticking) OR do i just always recast them at like 1-2 sec? Also about this, is it more important to finish my mindflay(if it's lets say halfway) when my dots come off cooldown or should i just stop and recast instantly or right before the mindflay?
And what about when multidotting? do i still use vampiric touch or is it only worth multidotting SW:P?
Sorry for the stupid questions but this has been on my mind ever since i dinged and i don't feel like not being on par so figured i should ask here first!
