    ..is this the magic pill ?

    Sooo... GC had this to say yesterday

    VT does a lot of damage, but that's the juice we gave Shadow to be able to compete on the damage meters. We don't think it's a problem, at least for now.

    I want to know, after seeing a few of the posted WWS reports, is this our smoking gun? ???

    We've seen a couple nice a couple nice glyph changes, and a combination of things added to Shadow form. Now they haven't said they were done, I'm not saying that.

    Yes, 2.1-2.5k VT ticks looks very promising. However is fixing a single dot, going to help us scale better ? Its a huge boots the 41 point talent granted.

    I just don't know if it is enough.
    Thoughts ? Comments ?

    Majority of priests still haven't tried the beta or new encounters with new talents / changes so it is early to say what's going on with Spriest. We received quite a large boost to our dots (scaling with crit, increased coefficients) and a large boost to Mind Flay but I do believe, if we will still do subpar damage - we will get boosted. I am just puzzled by boomkins at this point. Their utility rivals ours during the TBC, but they deal shitload of damage on top of that. I really wouldn't bring a shadow priest unless we dealt at least 5% more damage than a boomkin or if our utility was returned in the form of returning mana as a percentage of our DPS.

    ON PTR - which has all the buffs, My shadow priest is doing over 1300DPS totally unbuffed. That is an absolutely MASSIVE boost, and I am not even geared with enough crit to be good.

    We are scaling well, and theorycraft as one of the stronger DPS.

    Do not worry, we are looking strong.

    We're looking good compared to the casters. Compared to melee, I'm not sure.
