Shadow Priest

Tons of new caster animations are coming with patch 7.3 Casters are getting some fantastic spell animation changes on the patch 7.3 PTR. So far we have changes included for Restoration Druids, all Mages, all Priests, and Elemental and Restoration Shamans. Warlocks are being worked on but aren’t ready yet.

Shadow Word: Patch 7.1.5 will bring big changes to Shadow Priest AOE It’s been a while since we’ve had a chance to step back and take a look at Shadow Priests in Legion.

Blood Pact: Demonology’s compare and contrast Apparently Destruction Warlocks will not be testable before Legion alpha freezes over via Frost Mages. That’s fine, my bet of “just before the world ends” is still in the running for when we’ll get to Incinerate on the alpha realms. While we commiserate with Monks over our third untestable spec, this column will take a sidestep...




Shadow Word: Shadow Priest class hall and Artifact tree updates Some things change and some things stay the same. The Legion alpha is not the latter. Since we last went over Shadow Priests in the alpha, we’ve received some visual love in our class hall to make the Shadow portion feels more like a place we can call home. A terrifying, Insanity-inducing home. Bigger news,...

Shadow Word: The importance of Void Entropy Not too long ago, Celestalon took to the forums to post a reply to a very well thought-out breakdown of Shadow Priests heading into patch 6.2.  The entire post is quite lengthy, but to any dedicated Shadow Priest, it’s a must-read (as is the reply from Celestalon).  Instead of reiterating points made in the post,...
