    Shadowpriest needs your help!

    Hello guys!

    I have a few questions, this afternoon i almost got asskicked on the new voa boss due a shadowpriest with hes holy gear on. I don't get this..

    Armory isn't updated yet so ill post my gear in screenshot:

    Meter Old boss voa: http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/3171/oldboss.jpg


    My rotation is VT-DP-MF(clipped after 2stacks)-MB-SW:P

    then priority: VT-MB-DP, when all my dots and spells are on cd i use SW, only use this when i have like 2 secs on MB or DP left to refresh.

    I can get 3.1k off on a dummy. but in raids i dunno im always just in front of the tanks in dmg meter. only when i can use Mind Sear then i can be on top.

    Im not saying i wanna be top of the meter but i see movies were priests are in the top5. SO i must be doing something wrong. Maybe its just my FPS in most encounters that suck, i have like 15fps in bossfights :/

    Instead of iterating over the same over and over again, first thing you need to do is to go read this topic: http://www.mmo-champion.com/index.php?topic=53036.0

    What we can see from your screenshots is your VT up-time is absolutely horrible, and can be improved with a 15-20% margin. That's another 500 dps or so.

    And then you need to play A LOT more aggressive and get more Mind Blasts in. I don't think you're using it on every single cooldown, but missing out several seconds on Mind Flay.

    Your dummy dps is irrelevant. But you should at least be able to push 4k in a 25man VoA (since you're bound to miss some raid buffs.)

    Looking at your stats balance, I would say you focused to much on spell haste, and should try gain some gear pieces to improve your spell-power and spell-crit.

    I presume your 2017 spell power is WITHOUT Inner Fire.

    And you didn't get your ass kicked, you both played horrible ;-)

    It's easier to score higher dps on Emalon since you can multi-target DoT.

    I didn't focused on haste at all tbh, its just what i get . Mostly SP/crit. And yes that sp was without IF.

    And i used MB on every cd tbh, i clipped MF for it(maybe i shouldn't do that).



    Thx for the replies tho.

    Re: Shadowpriest needs your help!

    You should clip Mind Flay for Mind Blast, unless you feel comfortable not doing so (experience will tell you when you're ready for that.)

    And if you used Mind Blast on every cooldown you lost 30 seconds worth of Vampiric Touch damage. Need to focus more on the uptime of it.

    It's hard to say exactly since you didn't provide the length of the fight.

    You mean VT instead of VE right?

    Re: Shadowpriest needs your help!

    Are you using any sort of timers to track the dot duration on your target or are just looking at the icons at the boss frame?

    Re: Shadowpriest needs your help!

    I use Classtimer.

    Did you get carried through Immortal or something?

    The point of your flame? He asked a valid question. Immortal doesn't require "skill", naxx is freakin' easy, just no DCs at crucial fights and whoop - there you go, you got the title.

    3500 and not dying is better than 4500 and dying

    Re: Shadowpriest needs your help!

    did you buy that char or something? if you got enough experience to have farmed naxx enough for gear and immortal you should have worked out what to do by now..

    I personally don't clip shit, just always keep dots up use mb when I feel like it, ocassionally swd depending on circumstances and spam mf. After t7 content farming I tuned my gear to give me around 2.6k sp self buffed, 20% crit and 320 haste. On patchwerk normally pulled 4.5-5k dps (do have a crip pc though, like 2 fps in 25s )

    Oh and I don't use any addons, wow ui + getting used to watching the dot pics ftw ;D

    Patchwerk is a joke for meters.

    It seems im casting VT too early or too late, need to time it exactly i suppose.

    Working on it!

    Btw do u guys clip MF for MB when you're 5 stacks are up?

    Please don't keep asking questions about a topic that has been discussed to death until you have done everything in the topic linked above.

    Once you have mastered that first step we can talk about more advanced techniques to improve your game play.

    For the record you need to cast MB as close to every 7 seconds as is humanly possible... to do that you will need to clip MF from time to time. If there are fights where your mana is scarce it might be a good idea to sacrifice dps for DPM efficiency in which case you don't clip MF (thats one of the advanced techniques).
