    [Shadow] Auspicious Spirits nerf, what to expect?

    Hey there!

    With the newly announced nerf to Auspicious Spirits, what are the consequences? Will Spiteful Apparitions now be useless? If yes, what else to pick?

    What else is there to expect? How hard will this nerf cut into our damage?


    Please do not send me over to discord, I hate that app (in general), that's why I'm asking here.

    According to this, it shouldn't be a big deal. Fairly small slap on the wrist nerf. I'm less concerned about this nerf than the fact that we're on their radar, so to speak.

    I main a Spriest and a DK in BfA. I am not known for good decisions.

    lol That doesn't surprise me. Blizzard seems to have designed CoS for Spriests.

    Heh, same shit for who the hell remembers what time?

    1. Maybe you're bad in some encounters, but there will be others where you'll shine!
    2. You shine in those new encounters? Get a nerf, you dirty SPs!

    Yes, I get it SP is OP here, but isn't that what was promised? That we WILL be OP in some to compensate for all the shit with low build up and single target we have?

    Instance Spec: Switch to spec suitable for your role when "dungeon ready" pops up.
    LDB: WoW Token: Monitor WoW Token price changes in LDB display.
    Other addons: Quest Map with Details * LFG Filter for Premade Groups * Obvious Mail Expiration.

    Let's be fair here. Shadow Priest is in top 4 in all fights in BOD and topping a lot of them by far. This is not about JUST being good for certain types of fights. Shadow Priests will still be very good after the "nerf" but currently they are overtuned.

    The only BfDA fight that isn't a ranged DoT cleave is Mekkatorque, and we're middle of the pack on it. This is like 90% of a fight design issue and 10% a tuning issue, I think you're underestimating just how perfectly the fights in this tier have been built for Shadow, including in CoS.

    The nerf itself is not a big deal whatsoever, but the fact that we have classes like SP that prioritizes secondary stats over primary one and titanforging is still in the game with no sign of reforging coming back is just disgusting, rng roulette at it's very finest

    Can you name 1 spec in game with primary stats over secondary stats? Crying about overtuned specs like SP with problematic HIGH secondary scalling is questionable at best. That's like a pre-nerf DemoWL crying about haste beeing to good - go figure!

    You either completely missed my point or felt like you had to say something just to oppose me, even if it sounded flat out dumb
