    SPriest Keybinds

    Just wondering what some of the raiding Shadow Priests are using for keybinds for PVE. Coming from playing a long time tankadin making the change to a ranged DPS caster is a huge one.


    Currently I use a small assortment of key binds for my Shadow Priest when compared to the layout I used for my Tank. It might be the smaller need for actions in combat to be at fingers reach at all times but i just feel that perhaps I'm missing a few things and would like to get some input from people here that have been raiding on a SPriest longer than I have.


    Thanks for any input in advance guys

    f1: SW:P / f2: SW / f3: DP / f4: Mind Sear / f5: Fear (When im pvp'ing)

    1: Mass Dispell / 2: MB / 3: MF / 4: VE / 5: VT

    Everything important is within a few cm's...
    But its differs a lot from player to player...
    According to blizzard:

    Paladins : Lovedolls

    Priests : Swineflu

    1: SW, 2: MF, 3: MS, 4: DP, 5: PH 6: fear

    Re: SPriest Keybinds

    Im just starting to get used to keybinds, used to play on a laptop that it was impossible to do with but..

    1. Vampiric Touch
    2. Mind Blast
    3. Mind Flay
    4. Devouring Plague
    5. Shadow Word Pain
    6. Shadow Word Death
    7. Vampiric Embrace
    A. Dispell
    D. Mind Sear
    F. Abolish Disease

    is what I got so far, working on finding something useful to keybind to Q E and S, also use Grid+Clique so don't really need Dispell or Abolish Disease Keybound, still working it out.

    Re: SPriest Keybinds

    You don't wanna know all mine ^^

    Well, when I first started raiding I was really stupid, so I had my abilities spread out all over the keyboard. Now I have all useful spells bound so that I can reach them with my left hand while still being able to move around.
    If I was a Blizz server technician, I'd hijack a server and use it to download porn 24/7. Guess why the instance servers always are full B]

    Re: SPriest Keybinds

    It's perfectly intended to have two keybinds for it. It goes back to the Shattrath times, and the macros for selecting the right mount often bugs out in certain area's of the game, such as Dalaran Sewers, or Wintergrasp.

    Either your not posting your modifiers (in which case, it's the same as a direct keybinding), or you're saying you can't use Flash Heal, and Dispel while playing Shadow.

    Hopefully not the latter!

    Re: SPriest Keybinds

    hehe, that macro wont bug there:>

    Iuse macros :>

    /cast [harm,nomod]Vampiric Touch
    /cast [help,nomod]Flash Heal
    /cast [mod:alt,target=player]Flash Heal

    and the rest are more or less the same..

    That macro is (imo) rly good but sometimes if I target a Friendly player instead of an Enemy,, i drop shadowform and heal him... but thats very rare :>

    Re: SPriest Keybinds

    So you technically bound Alt+1 to Flash heal.

    Re: SPriest Keybinds

    right :> but it heals only me


    Mount macro :

    /run if(not IsMounted())then if(((GetZoneText()=="Dalaran")and(GetSubZoneText()~="Krasus' Landing"))or(GetZoneText()=="Wintergrasp")or not IsFlyableArea()or IsModifierKeyDown())then CallCompanion("MOUNT",1)else CallCompanion("MOUNT",10)end end
    /dismount

    Why do you have spells you use once every 5 minutes and once per target per fight on 2 of your main buttons and VT on a shift modifier? Stuff like that confuses me...

    Re: SPriest Keybinds



    I just made it today, and I just added all my key binds, mostly Shift + a number, like my racial is Shift + T for trinket.

    Re: SPriest Keybinds

    So you can press 7,8,9,0 on your keyboard?

    Really, enable display of keybinding on all yours bars, take the screenshot, and just cut the important part out instead of showing your entire UI.

    Re: SPriest Keybinds

    I found out how easy it is to make keybinds after I posted the Screen Shot. Bartender its simple.

    Don't really need much key binds for PvE though... all I really use is on my hot bar, besides wild magic potion, dispersion, and fade, which i've now made key bindings for. Now I need to memorize them.

    Still working on it.
