    Shadow PVP. Crit or Haste?

    Just wondering which stat I should be stacking more of. I'm doing more haste then anything, but lately my partner has been wanting me to try doing more crit for additional burst.

    With the upcoming changes to our dots, I'm inclined to agree.

    Advice?

    Crit would be only beneficial for burst if you had a trinket or a procc that gives you say 40% more crit.
    But at the moment your damage doesnt benefit from crit as much as from haste, even in pvp. You're doing alright if you aim for haste.

    Though so.

    Question 2.

    Paralysis, would it be worth picking up if my partner is a rogue?

    Nope, you will be focused by the other team most of the time so getting a mind blast off over DoT's will be a rarity. Not to mention it won't proc when you actually need it.

    Ugh, so wtf is the point of Paralysis if it's not viable in PVP?

    This makes me angry!

    I am mad, brother.

    Viable and optimal are not the same thing. Is it optimal? No. Can you use it and will it work at rare times? Yes. Mind spike x 3 just to get a 4 sec root over keeping dots up for substantial damage is not a good idea. You will also most likely get trained or silence after that combo so you will have 0 damage going out after that. Its just not worth it. We are not frost mages, we don't utilize roots for survivability.

    I see a ton of Spriest run with it when they are playing spellcleaves. I'd expect a return of the talent in 4.2 as spriest will be able to start teaming with other casters that arent UA locks, meaning control becomes key.
