    Shadowpriest Mana Burn PVE Rotation?

    According to the ptr notes, you will now burn 13% of a bosses mana, up to 26% of your own.

    If you have 17000 mana (which I have seen regularly) and a boss has 50million that means mana burn does 2210 damage before modifications.

    Is this worth it in a dps rotation?
    Is mana burn affected by shadowform?

    ETC.

    Thank you for your responses.

    With a horrible 3 second cast timer, it won't be viable. And they'll change it if it ever became a PvE raid dps spell

    Let's take Malygos into account: it has 212,900 (according to wowwiki). If it's susceptible to Mana Burn (and it should be), we're going to burn 212 900 * 0.13 = 27 677 mana, which divided by 2 is 13 838.5 damage.

    Now, wowwiki says that Mana Burn is Shadow school and is affected by Shadowform and so on, but if we just take 13 838.5 damage and spread it across 3 seconds we get 4612 dps.

    Read again: up to 26% of your own. I somehow don't think you have ~56k mana.
