    Shadow: Should I get T12 4set?

    Currently, I am wearing a Shadow 2set (helm and chest), Healing 2set (H shoulders and H gloves), and H Alysrazor pants. I'm sitting pretty at 2616 Haste and using VPLC & H Theralion's Mirror. Next week, I have enough to finally buy both my shadow legs and gloves to pick up a 4set, though it would be a downgrade from 391 to 378 for both pieces. I've done a little math to figure out what I'd be gaining/losing in stats (and I've done this assuming *cough praying* I get heroic conq legs next week).

    -76 Spirit
    -220 Haste
    +34 Crit
    +174 Mastery

    1670 Hit
    2396 Haste
    649 Crit
    1102 Mastery

    I feel like that's just a HUGE haste loss, and I'm not sure if it's worth losing that much haste to get the 4set. Hit cap won't be an issue, as I would restore some of the Spirit I've reforged out of. I have a Volcano Card that I could swap in, which would put me at 2524 Haste, but it's still under the 2589 plateau. All of my gear already has haste on it (or reforged into haste) so there's not much more I can do to get to the plateau. Is it worth picking up the 4set still and sacrificing the haste? Tier shoulders are out of the question ATM, as well as Domo neck, and H Necromantic Focus (5 conq users & 4 casters ><, 5 casters if you include myself)
    I'm not too concerned about my other secondary stats, and my int would be the same as what I have now (unless I don't get the heroic conq legs =[). I feel that the damage I do right now is decent, but I can't exactly calculate if the 4set will be more beneficial to me. I'm mostly concerned about my DPS on Heroic Rag, and am trying to get any DPS increase I can get. Note that I do not receive DI in my raid.

    I'll take any input anyone has to recommend Thanks so much.

    Yes but you should of asked Banakk first, you have a decent shadowpriest at your disposal and his your GM. Dont be afraid to ask your teammates for help.

    Get 4set at all costs.

    Go for 4 piece

    Your current gear sims for 30191 dps on a Patchwerk-style fight, 25784 dps on helter skelter (movement/adds/interrupts)

    http://chardev.org/?profile=235097 This set has you simply picking up 4 set without changing anything other than reforging to make the hit cap. It sims for 30555 dps Patchwerk, 25964 Helter Skelter.

    http://chardev.org/?profile=235095 This set picks up 4 set while also dropping your glove/boot enchants for haste ones and also replacing your hm TM with DMC:V. It sims for 31051 dps Patchwerk, 26433 helter skelter. Note that dmc:v sims well compared to TM because simcraft does not assume you will extend the proc through proper empowered shadow management, so take this with a grain of salt. This gear set is still most likely optimal for the gear you will have access to, provided you are willing to give up your run speed enchant.

    Thanks for this info ^^ I've never used simcraft, and it's hard to eyeball what gear would be better for me.

    Get 4p T12 ASAP, even if it means swapping a few 391 non-tier items out for 378 T12 pieces. The bonus is, on average, a ~260PP / 1100DPS+ gain. Even moreso in a Patchwerk/low movement situation.

    Thanks for all the quick responses =] Looks like I'll be getting my gloves and pants next week to get the 4set! Takes a while to buy all the tier pieces for two specs x.x even after Occu'thar being kind enough to give me some healing pants.
