Give shadow searing nightmare as a baseline and buff mind sear back up again, Bring back Cascade please blizzard. We have none insanity spender on aoe fights. We struggle so much in aoe fights while druid and mage can just freely dish out starfall and blizzard pompyro combustion arcane explosion. Mind sear and or dotting something that instantly dies ain’t as rewarding as it used to be becouse we get no Shadowy Apparitions proc from shadow word pain anymore casting vampiric thouch on 6 targets is like death for shadow aoe to even get anything out of Shadowy Apparitions.
I know many other classes are much worse of but shadow feels like lackluster at the current moment i feel as if our legendry’s are a joke many people got fooled to craft [Eternal Call to the Void] which didn’t even show up to be that good me included i know you probably have loads of tuning stuff to do but please hear me out shadow is a joke inside dungeons, I know i could probably sign in with guildies that is not my point I’m trying to prove that majority of the love of this class and it’s spec has gone down a spiral and i want to address that right now before we sit through another expack feeling lackluster inside aoe department.
Either you do that or fix the weird choice to make all the good talents in to lvl 30 row feels so dull you cant choose anything without getting punished on fights by other classes having much better legendary’s and specs in their talent three.
Just want to know if blizzard will address these horrible talent placements.
They Could For an example bring back the ability Cascade make it a cd like Flamestrike spam or Starfall spam. Instead of this downgraded version shadow crash which should be removed it always miss it’s target no real gameplay value about it.
edit 2021/03/30 I play a covenant becouse i want to i don’t want to switch to one only becouse it change the dps and puts me ahead of all other covenants you need to nerf Night Fae and buff its pet dot damage instead. I for one don’t want to respec only becouse of 1 ability that puts me ahead way above night fae its a busted covenant
(Edit 2021/03/26) It’s rather odd you meet priest people that tells me my class only exsist as a dps class to cast Power Infusion on Fire mages and or any of the best burst dps out there am just wondering how will you address this boring way of ruining a fun class fantasy of a dps class, you should remove this ability it just brings out the worst toxicity game play. You should make it a only priest specific Cooldown self cast
(Edit 2021/03/14 You should bring back abilitys we used to have https://youtu.be/aUtYWJO7YFY?t=72 this 1 Cascade
(Edit: 2021/03/09 After Seeing nothing has been done towards priest in 9.0.5 https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/news/23639755/905-update-notes patch to address their complete lack of damage output in aoe dungeon fights. It seams we will have to wait till patch 9.1 or next expack for blizzard to fix the sloppy cast [Vampiric Touch] on 9 targets and pray they aren’t dead by fire mages druid/rogue game play. hope they wake up soon else 2nd phase will have people quitting me included.-)
(Edit: 2021/02/17 Here’s a link to what method thinks shadow lacks at the moment https://youtu.be/Xd-LmhHLL60?t=334
Even Method thinks our cleave damage is a joke compared to Fire mage and should be buffed.)
(Edit: 2021/02/17 First of blizzard you should remove that the [Power Infusion] can be casted on other classes should only be a self cast on the priest why bring a priest only because a haste buff on other classes it’s a bad class design from the start it means we only take you because of one spell not because of what your class and what it brings to the encounter.
Edit 2021/01/30 I don’t want some major rework just some love for the class again like you used to do, right now no one even feels like taking a shadow inside a group unless It’s bunch of pre made teams or your own key. The fact should stand alone obvious for the last two bosses shadow isn’t even viable inside Shadowlands raid for those two fights, Shouldn’t be that hard to address shadows lackluster playstyle which rewards nothing towards a team on cleave fights. I want to do something more than doting a main target and hoping void form is up and that you have to stand still else your whole dps window is gone
Edit:2021/01/30 Is it Fair Game Play that druids have their Boomy Free Starr falls and free singel target casts and mage fire don’t get me started on how broken their aoe burst is at the moment is it fair game play that the only viable legendary we got is a sloppy [Talbadar’s Stratagem] that requires you to have 3 dots on main target whilst other classes gets much better health cared catered in legendary department were is the love for shadow priest blizzard? I don’t mind you not caring on the legendry’s for shadow or nerfing us because 1% knows some about shadow while the majority struggles to grasp and move over to paladin or mage or druid you need to get in touch with reality and fix shadow else you gonna lose a huge player base playing something they want to love but can’t because you show no love or affection.
