    Shadow Priest S5 Arena Guide

    This strategy is hands down the best possible way to play a Shadow Priest in arenas, and applies to all team sizes and brackets.

    Step 1: Mount up and run straight into your opponent.
    Step 2: Use Psychic Scream. Throw a SW:P on someone, too, if you get the chance.
    Step 3: Get stunned and dropped to 50% health in the half second it takes your opponents to react to the fear, then hit Dispersion. If you're really good, you can even Disperse before they drop you to 50%!
    Step 4: Jump around in circles until Dispersion wears off.
    Step 5: Throw up a Shield, Prayer of Mending, and (if you're really lucky) Renew.
    Step 6: Proceed to die in the most horrible manner possible. If you were lucky enough to get a Renew off, don't expect to survive long enough for it to tick.

    If you can follow all of these steps perfectly, you're well on your way to 1600.

    Wrong.

    Step 1: Mount up and hide behind your warlock/rogue/ret paladin partner
    Step 2: Begin fight by throwing up your debuffs
    Step 3: Realize your dots and debuffs have been removed
    Step 4: Flail Hopelessly and pop dispersion when you get low
    Step 5: jump around aimlessly
    Step 6: Throw shield up and spam SW:P
    Step 7: Watch partner die
    Step 8: Lose 1-20 arena points
    Step 9: ???
    Step 10: Profit
    L2P or GTFO
    - Gear isn't free, earn it
    - I also have opinions regarding this game, you're not special
    - LFG Heroics.

    Wait, wait.. You actually have time to throw things up?
    I've tried the 'running behind your partner' thing, but it didn't turn out so well. Maybe if I drop Shadowform.

    It really will, and when it doesnt blizzard will say hrmm, we are currently looking into this, it doesnt look very good
    You lookin for a fair and balanced game? One that's totally about the player skill and non of the extra flair and dazzle? Well try "PONG", this beauty is a timeless classic and is proudly supported by the "Stop feeding the Trolls Union 105"

    Re: Shadow Priest S5 Arena Guide

    yeh, Resillence wil fix.. sigh -.- well.. when i finally get good resi gear after being steamrolled for the next few weeks / months.. all Retri / DK / Rogue will have full S5 gear and wtf pwn me anyway..

    Ofc i could also just /Afk bg for the next half gear and get full savage gear.. lol -.-

    im sticking strictly to pve atm on my priest, when weekly raids n stuff is done i lol around on alts or so.. pvp as priest atm is like doing hc with hunter pets tanking.

    You can rez in arena.

    I ran away to drink once when it was down to 1v1 and the other priest did the same. So I thought. Except. He rez'd the lock and I got raped. >_<

    No warlocks are more viable than shadow priests for pvp. Shadow priests aren't really viable for any aspect of pvp except maybe bgs, but thats about it.

    Not saying that spriests are in a good position at all...but please, for the love of god, realize that you can hit dispersion BEFORE you are about to die. It isn't pally bubble, you can't heal to full inside of it.

    Pop it AS SOON AS you know you are getting focused. People blow their burst within the first second or two of switching to a new target. If you anticipate this, and see people running towards you, hit it right before they get there.

    It isn't hard to kill someone who becomes vulnerable with 5% health, but it is much harder to kill someone with 80% health without cooldowns.

    Didn't Blizz send you the memo? Resilience is the magic pill that will balance out all classes... LOL!

    I almost fell out of my chair typing that. The only thing Res will do is make it even harder for shadow priests to kill anything with a lower crit chance and less DoT damage. Might as well make the S5 set bonus, "When ever an enemy player targets you, you die instantly rather than have to wait the 3-5 seconds it'll take for him to actually kill you."
