    Vampiric Embrace

    I have though of use one of my dual speccs as shadow with 2/2 in Improved Vampiric Embrace and 1/3 Shadow Focus and just switch gear with the specc. Do you think it will be useful for some fights?

    Im just after opinions here so let's discuss!

    I don't think it's a very good decision. Improved Vampiric Embrace isn't a good enough substitute. More self healing versus stats equal to 2% hit is really a no-brainer.

    But if you really want Improved Vampiric Embrace (for hard mode progression or whatever), you could always take two points out of Focused Mind if you don't have any mana problems with that.

    You can get both talents, don't take Improved Spirit Tap since it sucks.

    I agree, 2% hit is still ~53 hit rating which is a lot to make up for via gear and/or gems. I use and enjoy having Imp. Vampiric Embrace and have sacrificed the points in Spirit Tap and Imp Spirit Tap for to get both Imp Shadow Form and Vampiric Embrace. The 5 points for a medicore dps talent like Imp Spirit Tap is a lot, instead I end up with this spec :


    You get two points left over, which I have been putting into Improved Power Word: Shield. The PWS and Imp VE adds great sruvavibility and diminishes the reliance on healers a lot, more than making up for the estimated dps from Imp Spirit Tap

    With the gear i currently have i just have to switch my back that meens i get -69mana, -14.2 mana reg, -4SP. So for me it dont really matter if i take away 2 points in Shadow Focus or Imp Spirit Tap.

    I have tryed this now with this specc.


    Self buffed my dot's healed for 85-100 and MB 175-200 (depends on crit) wich could really help out in hardmodes or what so ever.
    I will keep this specc as alternative specc, it can be useful later on.

    2/2 Imp VE is sweared upon by some people, and not even looked at by others. Personally i never take it, but if you do want it i would go something like this - http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#bVcbhZZ0efVRfzffqfzAo . This skips Spirit tap and imp spirit tap, but has Imp VE and Imp Sform (you would assume you'd take this if you take imp VE because you'd get imp VE to do more healing in hard encounters and usualy here there would be spell pushback)
