This is not a troll, but in fact a serious question. Every single group I've been in since 4.0.3 Shadow Priest DPS has been very sub par compared to every other DPS. I've been grouped with an 84 hunter who did 13.5k dps, while the best Spriest I've seen do is about 11k in iLevel 350 gear. In addition the CC that a shadow priest brings is sub par as well imo. Sure Mind Control has it's uses, but shackle is useful only against undead. An AoE fear is situational at best, and they get a single target fear which again is situational. If someone can please answer seriously I'd appreciate it. This isn't a rag on shadow priests, I'm legitimately asking this as I've played Spriests in Vanilla, BC, and early WOTLK, and I'm curious. Thanks.
