    DPS Trinket Use (Ice Crystal)

    After running with the Abyssal rune and Broodmother for weeks (no dragon soul) I managed to pick up the nevermeliting ice crystal:

    The spell power is gravy but my question is, does the on use (20% crit) make this trinket a must have for shadow priests. Rolling a SW:P with 20% more crit throughout a long fight would seem like a beneficial. Add to that the base spell power increase and I wonder if its better than the broodmother or the rune.

    Has anyone played around with this trinket yet? Thoughts?

    For a boss where you can lock in the crit into SW:P and keep it rolling for the whole fight Nevermelting is superior to your current trinkets. For encounters with a lot of movement and target switching the proc is close to being useless.

    Also DoT crits doesnt reduce the charges, only non-periodic spells. So you should use this before casting a VT or DP. Mind Flay crits will reduce the charges though.

    I have this on my alt Spriest. It is prob better than almost any other trinket you can get on a fight were you can keep the Swp up indefinatly...if not then its alright, but there is probably better...ie abyssal rune for more vt and dp ticks throughout a fight.

    I got this and i can tell you that it's incredibly OP for SP.
    In any ICC encounter so far you can keep it up all time (except gunship), and it jumps my crit on SWP from a 30~% during the whole fight to an impressive 50% + the occasional buff midfight on VT/DP.

    According to http://www.shadowpriest.com/viewtopi...201757#p201765 , the trinket is currently fifth in place for BiS before hard modes (since we lack a lot of hard mode gear). And it certainly is better than your Broodmother.

    Personally i'd stick with Brood over Illustration... only needing to ramp up 5 stacks compared to 10 stacks makes it far more desirable and the PP difference in the 2 is very small.

    Having said that, the levitate change does make keeping your stacks active during intervals a lot easier, beasts of northrend for example could result in you losing your stacks quite often.
