    Thinking of this as a Shadow PVP spec

    http://www.wowarmory.com/talent-calc...12023102311051


    Tell me your thoughts. You can't deny that an extra 10% magic damage reduction is pretty sexy, even if you sacrifice some other talents for it.

    Nothing is for certain yet, i'm just thinking of new things. With the dispersion glyph, I really am getting my mana back up quicker.

    Also, another option would be to move 2 points from Improved Fort and putting them into Blessed Recovery.


    Really going for survivability.

    If you really belive you can go into arena without shadow power then I sugest you just skip this part of the game
    As a response to the crowds whining about PvE beeing too hard throughout vanilla and TBC Blizzard recently hired on Bob the Builder.
    In a recent press confrence on the subject he was quoted as saying "Can we fix it? Yes we can!".

    Blessed recovery is pretty terrible, and most comps these days are cleave teams which really doesnt get helped by spell warding.

    My God, what a horrible creation. People seeing what they want? Thank God they tried to shy away from that. I know it pisses me off when I'm in an heroic raid, yet in the back of my head all I can think is 'some casual player is playing a heroic dungeon and not wiping.' -Vodkarn

    Do you really think that Shadow Priests crit in PVP?

    I'd at least try to jiggle points for the dispel protection talent, but idk where I'd take it from.

    You'll be OOM so fast without Meditation. What's that extra 10% SPELL damage help you? It's not like you can't counter other casters as shadow.
    Also, you should take Silent Resolve no matter what.. I believe you won't really succeed with that spec but hey, who knows.

    Clearly putting points into a talent that, in PVP, does absolutely nothing because of resilience, is a great idea, right?

    On the main topic, shadow and PVP does not work unless you are just looking for something to do in Battlegrounds. Mind Melt is useless if you are going for arena as well.
    I shall die here. Every inch of me shall perish. Every inch, but one. An inch. It is small and it is fragile and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.

    Going that far into holy without picking up desperate prayer is a great waste.

    Also Cyone has a point. You don't go without shadow power in arena these days. Even if you only got 5% crit chance after resilience (and mind you, the majority of people aren't even close to being resilience capped), it still matters a huge deal once you actually crit. That lucky RNG can win you a game, where 10% magic redux can't.

    Sure it's bound to help vs. Death Knights and Paladins, but I prefer to go the offensive way and force them into playing defensively via big crits, instead of fooling myself into believing that I can actually tank them for longer than 10sec.


    This is Wrath of the Lich King. You don't go into arena unless you have massive crits.
    You just don't.

    Your missing shadow power and silient resolve. Those are 2 of the core talents you need to pvp. You can be shadow without the dispell protection but then you get laughed at by all the disc priest out there who clear your dots off 2 at a time, faster then you can apply them, for less mana.
    When people say "pls" just because its shorter then "please", I feel totally justified to say "No" just because its shorter then "Yes".

    TwistedPower, you do know you get full mana back for dots that are dispeled (except DP) and vampiric touch HITS for 6500 on target with 950 resilience?

    Why don't you check what talents do before you go on about them. Also, shadow power is laughable, we have 16% crit as full furious from gear and crits have double penalty anyway. Doing that extra bit isn't anything special, it's all about timing cooldowns and waiting for opponent to mess up and then you do the classic fear > silence > disarm > kill.

    Also, I welcome anyone who can dispel my dots to do it, I'd be very grateful for them to do it.

    You never skip Meditation. You never go for 100% crit bonus, crits receive double penalty now, 5 points for extra 500 damage is stupid.

    Meditation won't save you nearly as much mana as Mental Agility, it's not really worth it for arena. I can agree with you about Shadow Power though.
