Dotcom's Guide to Shadow Priest
« on: February 14, 2019, 05:35:13 AM »
Introduction
Hello guys Dotcom here I get asked all the time for information on Shadow Priest so I figured I'd throw together this quick guide to get you started.

Gear
Shadow Priests have some mana issues and they will to go oom quickly if they don't have the right gear with mana regeneration. That being said if you plan to a lot of 3v3 then you should use 5/5 Mooncloth Wrathful gear this will greatly improve your mana issues and because of the Twist of Faith talent spirit is converted into spell power.

Now if your only looking to do world pvp and Battle grounds then 5/5 Satin is the way to go.

Off-set Pieces
Wrathful Gladiator's Pendant of Subjugation
Wrathful Gladiator's Cloak of Subjugation
Wrathful Gladiator's Cuffs of Alacrity
Wrathful Gladiator's Cord of Alacrity
Wrathful Gladiator's Treads of Alacrity

Once you starting PvP Tokens you'll want to buy the custom s9 Off-set
 Illuminatus Apparatus Amulet of Persuit
 V.C.N Elite Cloak of Pursuit
 Illuminatus Apparatus Linen Cuffs
 Illuminatus Apparatus Cord of Dominance
 Illuminatus Apparatus Doomweave Slippers

Rings
First Ring:Ashen Band of Endless Destruction
Second Ring: Valanar's Other Signet Ring or V.C.N Elite Ring of Vigilance

Trinkets

Once you have enough Honor buy Illuminatus Bratus to replace your pvp trinket.

Weapons
Royal Scepter of Terenas II(Voter weapon costs 40 vote points) or Wrathful Gladiator's Blade of Celerity
Once you have enough honor buy Illuminatus Apparatus Elite Mageblade

Offhand
Wrathful Gladiator's Compendium or Shadow Silk Spindle

Wands
Wand of Ruby Claret or Wrathful Gladiator's Wand of Alacrity personally I use Wand of Ruby Claret because it has haste/hit with a socket.

Gems & Enchants
Red Socket: Runed Cardinal Ruby
Blue Socket: Stormy Majestic Zircon x5
Yellow Socket: Quick King's Amber
Green Gem you'll want one Shattered Eye of Zul in a yellow gem slot to reach spell pen cap.
Meta Gem : Forlorn Skyflare Diamond hands down the best.

4% for any targets
6% for undead or blood elf (not rogues or paladins)
8% for rogues and paladins (not UD or BE)
