    It really should stay stuck until MoP comes out Kelesti. It's invaluable to read for anyone rolling a spriest and trying to do some content before MoP.

    Getting it unstuck will convince the need to flesh out a new one. And while we don't really allow "bumping", I'll nudge this back up to the front page if it falls off (unlikely) before we get a 5.0 one up.

    Not sure why you'd unsticky this when the guide is still relevant. New stuff isn't out yet.

    To urge people that while this is relevant, it won't be for long.

    Their gap in the top helps convince people that "new ones would be great to have" and get working on it. If anything, it's an incentive.

    Then what's the point in stickying any guide at all when they're just going to be irrelevant in the future? That logic is dumb.

    The patch is about a month away from release. While that is close, that doesn't change the fact that what is currently available is still relevant. People are still going to want to know how to play in the current patch.

    Hey everyone, just wanted to touch base again. I admit I was a bit saddened to see the guide unstickied so quickly and so early, but it has to happen eventually. In its current form, it will be outdated the day the 5.0 patch hits. Additionally, with my new family I don't have the time I once did to do research and write guides. I haven't installed the beta at all, so whenever the patch hits it will probably be the first time get to see and play with the new changes.

    I plan to write a new guide for MoP, which I will publish on howtopriest.com. If it ends up on this site at some point in the future, great. If not, it's fine too. I don't work very fast, and guide-writing is a hobby of mine and not a forced responsibility. I work on it when I feel like it, because I really enjoy playing my priest, and not because I want it posted somewhere at the top of a forum.

    I sincerely appreciate all of the feedback I got throughout Cataclysm on the guide. I will try to apply what I've learned to my next one, and try to make it better. I'm glad that some people found it helpful, as that was the goal of writing it.

    Glad you will be planning to do one for MoP Kilee.

    I need to ask something I have been thinking about for a long time. I know that you should refresh your dots when you get intellect procs etc. But I never see anything being said about SW: P. Mind Flay refreshes it, but how does that work with buffs? Does MF refresh SW: P, so that after I get a intellect proc, my SW: P gets stronger from being refreshed by MF? Or do I need to reapply SW: P manually?

    This feels like a really stupid question, but it's been bugging me for a while now

    Since cataclysm the dot's damage is recalculated with current buffs on every refresh.

    What Kaesebrezen said. Interestingly, in Wrath there was a brief period where you could "stick" shadow word: pain at a certain value, and as long as you kept it up with Mind Flay it would last the entire fight under a higher value. It was pretty fun trying to keep it rolling for the whole fight. (heh)

    There's a mod that helped you with it called something like "buff green light" that looked like a traffic signal. It would turn green when all the buffs were up on you and a target. I actually kind of miss those days.

    Same here!

    Damn trinkets...

    on another note, what Kilee was talking about is exactly why they made sw:p update on refresh. Apparently Blizz felt it was op or something... grumble grumble...

    I'm just moving from normal DS to heroic tonight;

    Is it worth for DPS loosing 4spec bonus of ilvl397 tier and roll on cloth ilvl410?


    And since Morchok will probably go down, I'm not really sure if I should trade my tier shoulders or legs for this 2 items:
    - http://www.wowhead.com/item=78366
    - http://www.wowhead.com/item=78365

    my armory case it helps

    Hi zirgalan, thank you for your question.

    You are in holy spec atm, but I can imagine hat you have gloves offset and tier everything else. The best piece of the two you linked is the shoulders. You do not want to use the chest as an off set piece because neither the tier shoulders or gloves have haste on them. You do not want to drop your 4-piece set bonus, even for heroic items, so if you win the shoulders, just keep them in your bag until you get the tier gloves. Good luck!
