    5.4 shadow gear

    Havent been on the ptr just wondering if there is a list of the normal mode bis loot for shadow yet also iif our stat priorities will be changing with the new buffs to some talents

    Now, keep in mind I'm a holy priest, but given my knowledge of shadow, I'd say your BiS includes:

    Tier 16 Headpiece, Shoulders, Robes and Gloves
    Leggings of Furious Flame
    Belt of the Broken Pact
    Avool's Ancestral Bracers
    Bone-Inlaid Sandals
    Lever of the Megantholithic Apparatus (?)
    Black Blood of Y'Shaarj (?)
    Necklace of Fading Light
    Laser-Slice Signet
    Signet of the Dinomancers

    Again, I'm not shadow. I don't know your haste breakpoints, not too aware about stat priorities either (though afaik, haste > mastery > crit) I don't even know if this set hit caps you or not. But to the extent of my knowledge, this is what you'll want. The 2piece may change your priority, and I'm guessing you'll favor mastery over crit, if you didn't already. For talents, I'd go with Solace/Insanity, Bulwark, Twist of Faith (?) and Halo. Tier 5 is a bit tricky. I'd pick Twist of Faith because it'll be very easy to trigger in add fights, especially now that the trigger point is bumped to 35%, and in non-add fights, you can snipe it with Prayer of Mending/Renew. But Divine Insight may shine more on encounters where you're required to stay mobile. None of the glyphs seem to impact your DPS that much (except maybe Mind Flay, though indirectly), so personally, I'd go with utility in the form of Inner Sanctum and Fear Ward/Fade/Focused Mending/Mass Dispel.

    I'll never make or ask anyone to pay for information, just to be clear. We've always just put things like BiS lists and guides up on that forum in a "raw" state first so that Sr Members and Donors can give us advice and point out mistakes. The list will be available to the public within the next week or two, I'd say, so you may miss it the first week of 5.4. Keep in mind that there are many, MANY sims done to come up with these BiS lists, so it takes a lot of hours and work. Patience!

    What, a secret forum? How do you become a "senior" member then? X number of posts? Considering I have been there since a few days after the site launched.

    Posting often, showing you have knowledge of the class, being part of the community.

    Whatever has most haste is BiS. ez.
    When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
    When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
    And I held your hand through all of these years

    Factor in AMP trinkets and 18200 gcd cap, and that gearing strategy may not work out so hot

    I kinda like that thought, once hitting that point with haste balancing out our mastery and crit for a strong 2pc

    Believe what should be fixed? I don't even know who you are, which means you don't stand out. Just because you post a lot means nothing. You need to show knowledge of your class and be an affluential member to the community/site. We don't just give them out freely. They get voted on by the mods. I highly doubt we have more than 20 in total on the site. Demanding to become one will get you no where other than further from the point. You are more than welcome to become a donor, the link above will give you information on that. If not everything will be available to you come 5.4 release.

    Was referring to myself posting more, not demanding anything.

    The same can be said about many of the H2P senior members though, never seen anything of them outside of the actual side.
