Like the title says, I'm pretty fresh to the Shadow spec, but I enjoy it immensely. So much so, I dropped raiding on my rogue in order to gear out my Spriest.
The problem is, I'm not familiar with the kinds of numbers you'd expect a spriest to pull in 3.2.2
First off, here's my armory: http://www.wowarmory.com/character-s...thol&n=Slobber
There are a few items that need their gems updated, and I know I need to get rid of Energy Siphon; it's just what I have to work with at the moment.
Because I have 2pc tier 8, I prioritize VT>MB>DP>SW:P
I use SW, but only when I am:
a.) Above 50% of my maximum HP
b.) The cooldown on Mind Blast is <2 seconds
c.) The remaining duration of VT, DP and SW:P are all >5 seconds.
I tested myself on Patchwerk 25-man, and ended the fight at 5,126 DPS. Is this good for a Spriest? Bad? It feels really low to me, so I'd like to ask a few pointers from people who know the class.
If it's not low for a Spriest to pull those numbers... I understand why shadow priests are so excited about the buffs coming our way in 3.3
