HoTs and DoTs: A Restoration Druid and Shadow Priest

Shadow Priest Design: Never Broken

First and foremost I do think that a big reason that developers don’t try and “fix” Shadow Priest game play is simple numbers. People still play Shadow Priests. Many more players choose to play Priests. DPS Priest and Warriors never seem to fall out of favour with the player base. Numbers indicate that there is no problem with Shadow Priesting. So why change it?

Holy Priest Set Bonuses
(and Tires with Spikes)

Cassandri and Lathere would like to introduce Snakevenom, a golden Holy Priest. After a Vent discussion regarding the change to the healing Priest Tier 10 set bonuses he posted the following article on our guild forums. We thought it was too interesting not to share. This post is by Snakevenom.

Saurfang, Blood and Bubbles

I think of Deathbringer Saurfang as the “Bubble boss”. I can’t think of any boss, certainly no others in Icecrown (yes, of course we haven’t seen them all yet) that make you think: Yes. It’s good to be a Priest.

By a Round of Applause,
How Do You Feel?

A few readers suggested that I apply for the open WoW.com Priest columnist position. At first I was flattered and then I remembered that WoW.com is a news site. Heavy on the facts, light on the opinion. Kind of the opposite of me.

Battleground Independence

I watch as a single Paladin or Druid takes to the road picking off an unsuspecting passerby. I’ve started to call them Lone Rangers. They can operate independently. They can lead an attack. I can only follow.

Can’t Judge a Paladin by his Libram

So it turns out that I may have offended the one person from our guild that reads this blog. Reasons why I, Cassandri, am deserving of Divine Intervention.

Patch 3.2 Shadow Priest Gear
for the 25 man Raider

It’s always hard to get your head around what gear/upgrades are the smartest to make when a new bunch of gear is released in game. This list showcases the best items available to you – as a 25 man raiding priest – with a Hit/Haste/Crit option per slot.

Patch 3.2 Shadow Priest Gear
for the 10 man Raider

Bring on the shiny new gear! This post is aimed at 10 man raiding Shadow Priests and casual players who want to see some of the cool new loot available in game with Patch 3.2. In this list I have used my preferred stat weightings to create a list of achievable gear for the 10 man raider. Not all items have been listed but I’ve tried to find the best Hit, Haste and Critical Strike piece for each gear slot.

Into Pure Shadow Energy

Blizzard love Dispersion. They want us to love it too. But it’s lacking somehow. I believe that’s because it exists to server two purposes and doesn’t excel at either.

Zabra-cadabra

Blizzard are talking about the next patch which contains a new raid. And a whole new Tier set. It just feels way too soon for me. Before I stick my head in the sand about this new raid I just had to look once at the Shadow Priest Tier 9. Just once to see what it looks like.
