05-07-2011, 01:49 PM
I have been playing my shadow priest for some time now and he is starting to get geared. But i still dont see how these shadow priest are getting 20k and up the max i am able to reach seems to be about 14- 16k on raid bosses and 10k - 12k in heroics.
i was wondering if anyone could give me some help or show me a few tricks on how to increase my overall performance.

This is a link to my armory page and i understand that im not completely enchanted or anything =D

thanks again for the help =D

Same i told you in your other topic (http://www.tankspot.com/showthread.php?75668-Dps-low&highlight=):

- Gear wise you should run ZA/ZG 24/7 until you replace all your 346 with at least 353 epics (mix in craftable and reputation epics 359 when you can). This way you can get all the needed Maelstrom crystals for the more expensive enchants as well.

Keep your dots rolling on the target that tends to live the longest, use Mind Blast and SWD on cooldown and keep refreshing your SWP with Mind Flay. For advanced combat tactics and additional tipps you might want to look at "holy" grail of Shadowpriests -> http://www.shadowpriest.com

First of all, almost everything is missing enchants.

Helm: Get the socket bonus, 30 free stats is generally worth it. use mastery>haste rather than spirit>haste
Robe: 40 int in both sockets.

Everything else looks right. Post World of Logs if you want me to look into that. Otherwise read up on shadowpriest.com or my Youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/schisme

I was going to reply to this thread just to tell you ShadowPriests.com.. My daughter is younger and I have to setup/lookup her information for her. She is level 85 and enjoys PvP but they have all the info you need.
