Hi Guys just have a question about the current state of shadow priests. I haven't played properly since the end of WOTLK. For most of cata and mop I've just been playing alts and doing LFR garbage, no 'real' raiding - most of this has been holy. In BC and WOTLK I was in realm first guilds and have the relevant titles and so forth so I'm not just a bad player...i hope!
Today for the first time this xpac I did LFR as shadow and I am unsure if I've personally played horribly, or something else. My gear level is 496, and as holy I've been going very well. I understand that healing meters mean nothing as long as you do the boss, but for perspective I'm always at the top, even against more geared players. As shadow today, the only people I beat were the healers, the tanks, and a afk hunter. I don't think I played poorly either, the dots refreshed when needed, MB on CD, good Halo's ect. There were 2 warlocks, 2 dks, a monk and a few others that doubled my damage. Usually 55-60k vs 120k+
As holy I have no issues going well, but I didn't know what was wrong as shadow unfortunately.
