    Just a quick note, I belive the current dps world record for a shadowpriest on Brutallus is something like 1.9k. Saying they put out "around 2k dps" is something of laughable. That being said...shadowpriests are getting a huge buff to damage in WOTLK, as their utility is getting very slightly nerfed. Like someone else has said in this thread...blizzard is trying to make it so that you don't have to bring 3 shadowpriests to a raid so everyone doesn't go oom, there will be ret pallies, survival hunters, and frost mages now to act as batteries.

    Shadowpriests are not getting replaced, my friends! They're merely getting more buddies to help the BATTERIES have some batteries....eh..yeah.

    frost mage would just be like a mana tide totem and would not replace shadow priest
    This one made me giggle

    both at Spriests doing 2000 DPS (Noone's broken 1800)

    and at the 2:1 DPS to Mp5 ratio (Try 400)

    Soo many classes are getting mana back capabilities so i doubt there will be one class that you HAVE to bring to keep your party topped with mana, it will come to down to who can DPS the best, and provide the same mana back as any of the other soon to be mana batteries.

    Spriests are NOT the weakest damage dealing classes in the game, Spriests dont do large DPS numbers though. Damage done and DPS isnt the same thing. Somethimes high DPS is good, but in the end its the damage done that counts and kill bosses ;D

    Actually the ignorant is you. DPS and damage done are equivalent on a boss fight provided that there are no dmg variation requirements and that all classes have equivalent damage time. Which is simply not necessarily true.

    Take, for example, a fire mage - higher DPS than a Aff lock or a SP at decent gear levels. Now, who does the most damage on a high movement fight? MAges DPS is bound to be higher, problem is that he will lose quite some damage due to movement (where it drops to about 0). So, in a high movement fight, I rather have a Aff lock than a fire mage.

    Regarding the dmg variation, the burst capacity is quite important - which means doing higher damage (High DPS) during a limited period of time. It is a plus that a class can do so, although much of it is connected to gear (trinkets in particular).


    But on the issue at hand...

    I don't expect to see frost mage much of a mana batery. If you see them much in raiding (personally I favour other type of mages - frost is a bit too much defensive). The elemental will have a hard time surviving AOE dmg environments and remember it is still beta.

    Anyway, isn't VT supposed to afect the whole raid in WotLK? At least that is the way that buffs are going (from party to raid).

    So, in addition to SPs, I think Palas and Hunters will be the best mana battery

    its stupid how you guys are like "omg imba mana batts thats overpowered"
    ITS BENEFICIAL TO YOUR WHOLE RAID its not like its AGAINST you class or something.. geez

    this aint PvP its PvE and if it helps your raid i hav no problem with that

    Re: Mana Batteries-Frost Mage or SPriest?

    VT is not raid wide yet at least. And as a note how many greatly mobile fights there is and how many of those are really mana intensive?

    You are just stupid, it's not you being good, it's your raid partners being utterly useless.

    On SWP lvl of gear and exigence, spriests should always be the last on dmg.

    http://wowwebstats.com/5pfebalsynjcs?s=45460-56160 teron, I did 1800 dps as spriest and look @ my possition, and still, we had a lock to gear up so he didn't do that much

    in brutallus I did 1700 and still ended last, not counting the other spriests.

    I did wrote that this example isnt the best one. We did have to take some undergeared members with us (vacationtime) and some others realy need to learn how to dish out more DPS.
    But i have never been worse thatn 4rth in damage done in any raid, with any group. With the new WotlK changes according to Blizz Spriests will do more DPS comparing to other classes, than they do now (thats why they nerf our VT, less utility = more DPS) so i would love to se a good DPS test on Dr.boom with a frostmage and a Spriest at lvl 80 with equal gear. A wild guess is that they will do simular DPS. Our upperhand will be chackle and DoTs in the UD instances.

    All the DPS tests i have seen so far is with Spriests with lvl 70 gear who in the most cases lack of spiritstats (we get more damage from spirit to in WotlK)

    Just a thought.

    http://wowwebstats.com/3ja6oepxsmvua?s=27917-54044 this is more likely to happen in most raids though

    top geared spriests BARELY hit 1,9k dps while other classes hit 2,5k dps and more with ease
