    I always put my dots up first then go into mind blast and mind flay.

    i.e. VT, DP,SW:P,MB,SW, MB,MF,MF,and refresh dots and repeat. If im raiding then i put VE between VT and SW:P.

    I haven't tested this rotation b/c my guild stopped raiding and i haven't had time. If there is a better rotation can someone pls inform me. Thank you.

    There's no such thing as a rotation for a shadowpriest.

    Anyway, 3.0

    Keep following spells up 100% of the time:

    SW:P (Refreshed by Mind Flay, only cast once)
    Devouring Plague every 24 seconds
    Vampiric Touch every 15 seconds
    Vampiric Embrace each minute (Raid wide, does MAJOR healing)

    Use following abilities on cooldown, in following order:

    1. Mind Blast
    2. Mind Flay

    Use desto potions / haste potions as it fits you, preferable with heroism.

    Use your first shadowfiend when you hit 65% mana. Use the second as it fits you, and Dispersion when it's situational (such as while having Fire Bloom on Kil'jaeden.)

    There, shadowpriests 101 explained.

    Please note how Mind Blast got higher prior than SW (if you choose to use it, I don't) , due to how Replenishment works.

    Basicly you want to Mind Blast on every CD to get max mana for your raid setup.

    Also something to take into account is that with the new replenishment rule, it doesnt stack with other replenishment buffs ie) hunters and ret pallies

    Doesn't stack, but afaik you can have replenishment on 10 people, per replenishment provider.

    So 3 providers = 30 people (if up at the same time.)

    Atleast it did seem to work that way in today's SWP. Nobody had mana problems today, but again non fight but KJ latested over 3min.

    Seems to pass over people who have the buff given by someone else. From my exp as well.

    Re: What is the preferred Spriest spell rotation

    There is no spell rotation as such, instead spriests have a spell priority, that being:

    1. VT
    2. SW:P
    3. MB
    4. SW
    5. MF

    However, the priority can get a little blurred if you don't care about maximising your mana regen and want to maximise your DPS, depending on when dots are about to expire and when abilities are comming off CD it can be better to MB, SW or finish a MF channel instead of refresing dots.

    In addition, with changes to the coefficent to MF and the fact that it can now crit and the new talent that allows spriest to crit for 100% more damage I believe that SW is a very minor dps upgrade to MF so I believe a lot of the spriest in beta are leaving SW out of the rotation because the slight dps upgrade is very minor and not worth the backlash.

    I believe it is more a mana issue than anything else.
