shadow priests have the raw end of the deal.
we don't bring the best dps. there may be a couple fights where do better, like yogg and kol, but the majority of the time, we aren't topping the meters, or even in the top 5 for that matter.
the problem is, other classes that are usually around the same level of dps as us bring valuable buffs to the raid. The only buff a shadow priest is 3%hit with spells. something that a boomkin can bring instead, and something that no one really honestly counts on anyway. most people are hit-capped, so so our buff is useless. other classes that don't do a lot of dps bring things like bloodlust, 5%crit, etc.
even the pures, who are supposed to do 5% more damage than the hybrids are bringing better buffs for the raid than a shadow priest.
can we please have something this would make a raid leader want to bring a shadow priest, besides just being a good player? i want to give something to the raid that will help us in raiding.
