    You receive an increased effect and duration when you drink any elixir or flask you are able to make.
    You know what is better than drinking a beer? Brewing your own beer. And then drinking it. And then... Drinking another beer. And then, punching somebody in the snout! That's what!

    No, I 'missed' it because the +24 crit is a DPS loss over 12 crit/12 hit and the cooldown and the cooldown on the nitros gives them a distinct disadvantage over Tuskar's on any class that does not have its own speed boost (Unholy/Mut/Ret/Feral). If you're hit capped they would offer at best +9 EP, which would make it better than tailoring. The problem is in ICC you have to move at too high a frequency for their speed boost to be sufficient, so you won't be using them anyway.

    Tailoring cloak enchant: ~73.75 SP vs 20 haste - EP gain ~53.75.

    So no, unless you make very good use of bombs, Tailoring wins. With good use of Bombs Tailoring + Engineering beats other professions, without good use of bombs JC+Tailoring wins.

    And no... JC is well under Tailoring and Engineering and Incription is under JC. It's tied with the other +46 professions.

    Engineering is very nice, but at a logical breakdown of the passive spellpower from lightweave you can't really say any other profession offers a larger dps increase. That being said, utility wise Engineering could still be considered the most 'valuable' profession.

    I'm currently running with Inscription and Tailoring atm, I was going to drop Inscription a long time back for JC but then they changed the gems getting socket bonuses and I couldn't justify it anymore. Now I have every pattern and find it hard to walk away from that for the minor dps gain I'd get from anything else.

    I generally find that the passive bonuses of Alchemy make up for it, like never having to use a mana or health potion or even drink in heroics because of the Endless potions, twice the duration on all flasks and potion buffs, and the mixology benefits. Of course from a completely mechanical min/max point of view, it isn't the best, but considering how close it is and how professions always end up changing (blacksmithing and jewelcrafting are the best professions for everyone! Oh...wait...I wasted 10k gold) I would say pick what you like most.
    I shall die here. Every inch of me shall perish. Every inch, but one. An inch. It is small and it is fragile and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.

    Re: BEst professions for a shadowpriest

    First of all thanks everyone for the replies. I havent been able to read the post yesterday and now I saw very good answers.

    The main reason I considered Alchemy and Tailoring was because those were the few profs I still didnt had access to on my alts. Right now my priest is my farmer (herb/mining) but I'm considering changing it to my pally alt and doing something else on the priest.
