    This.

    Screw the orbs, the Ravens, the combo points, and voidform.

    I'd like to see removal of Void Form as well as removal of Insanity just like they're removing Maelstrom - Take the Rogue out of the class!

    A return of MoP's Mastery (all dots cast by a Shadow Priest have a % chance to tick twice each time they deal damage). Wrath's T10 baked into the spec (Mind Flay channels much faster). Here's hoping >v<

    To compensate for the loss of Void Form, Mind Sear could instantly cast SW:P on all targets within 8 yards of the primary target. Casting Mind Blast strikes all targets afflicted with SW:P for 50% damage.

    Shadow Orbs were hit and miss, I didn't mind them because they built passively and empowered DP.

    Players: Why did you make SW: Death a talent?

    Blizzard: Why don't we design the entire class around this talent instead? ::raised eyebrow::

    Relapses... a name I haven’t heard in eons.

    Speaking in what seems like eons, I for one miss the old school: dot, dot MB on cd, and flay filler. But alas I’m too boring, and miss the low skill cap of having fewer buttons to press. Then again I haven’t raided in almost eight years.

    I don't like Voidform, however shadow orbs & dotweaving were the absolute worst..

    I could care less what my character looks like, but Legion Shadow was the most fun any spec in the entire history of the game has ever been. They nerfed the fun quite a bit with BFA, but the the theme is still solid. Shadow orbs were the worst.

    Voidform has too many mechanical downsides and should just be killed off.
    Mechanical downsides.... like going 2 minutes on pull before getting 3x Shadow Orbs because the RNG gods decided to frown upon you that day?

    Funny how opinions can be so divided.
    I am at the exact opposite on this. Legion pigeonholed shadow in a void with a dagger and insanity... well I liked staves, orbs, ravens and mana more.

    Insanity resource is such a drag.. I hope they change their minds or else shadow will not the spec I will play anymore. Kinda done with how they handeld the spec.

    Staves are perfectly viable without the legion artifact, so that's a non-issue. Ravens were a cool aesthetic, I'll grant you that. Mana was virtually nonexistent as a resource long before the insanity resource. I've been playing Shadow since TBC and the removal of insanity would be such a downgrade to me. Keep dots up, Mind Blast on cooldown, and Flay. That's it. Shadow Word: Death in executes and sear+multi dotting in AoE doesn't add much depth, especially if they keep Misery as a talent choice.

    I wrote Dragonsoul. The mechincal downside didn't exist because the tier bonus eliminated it completely.

    Misry was the only talent that made the rotation less buildy and was a welcome change when it came around.

    Idk the vibe of the spec was ruined for me when legion got introduced. I never felt like I was one of these void cultists before the resource design.. and then bam yea you are this now. The mistery with shadow spec was then pushed into something that will never be my favorite.

    Just awful. Was staunchly shadow from the beginning of TBC until Orbs came out. Horrifically clunky. They hated the way Holy power was used with something similar for paladins just to give it to shadow in a worse form. They actually tend to do that a lot with Shadow.

    Surprisingly enough it was considered on of the most difficult rotations in TBC and Wrath because of MF clipping and dot clipping.

    Which required a bandaid fix of a tier bonus. Then again, 2p bonus was also a bandaid fix to keep us from killing ourselves during Madness of Deathwing.

    Fuckin remove it and also make disc priests like in Cata.

    I don't understand how people can like voidform gameplay.

    It's utterly and completely niche and clunky.

    Shadows priests are either grossly overpowered or absolute garbage, no in between.

    The fact that S2M talent is still a thing blows my mind.

    It's absolutely slow and requires a ramp up time. It's known that spriests are terribly for M+, I would pick a dps with a lower ilvl than a higher ilvl spriest.
