Shadow Priest: Season 11 Talents and Glyphs

by Ashman // January 5, 2012

So we meet yet again Skill-Capped members. Today I’m going to be writing about Shadow Priest talents and if there is anything new in the recent 4.3 patch. We have a new season with a fresh reset and the race is on to get gladiator. With the new recent buffs to Mortal Strike, Mind-Numbing Poison, and Widow Venom we are looking at a few potential changes in the spec. I will also be covering some glyph choices and explaining why I chose them over other glyphs. I know there isn’t any hard decisions when picking your glyphs but there are some that could be possible contenders when running certain comps.

State of Shadow in 4.2

by Ashman // July 6, 2011

I’ve been playing the Public Test Realm (PTR) for quite some time and so this article is going to cover many of the changes for Shadow in 4.2 as well as the overall state of Shadow going into the new patch. I’m going to be talking about some class changes, comps, and the play style. Another thing I want to briefly talk about is the new gear and what to aim for in terms of stats. I feel that Shadow is going to be in a very good position in patch 4.2 since some classes are being toned down offensively and defensively.

Shadow Priest Control

by Ashman // June 27, 2011

Hey everyone I wanted to talk a bit about Shadow’s abilities and overall control. As many of you may know Shadow lacks quite a bit of mobility compared to some classes, but it is compensated with strong damage, shields, healing and some moderate control. I’m going to talk about Shadow’s control type abilities in this article along with providing some useful macros that help you assess that control. I’m also going to touch basis with [Leap Of Faith] and its uses offensively and defensively.
