There was no post in the priests section and i felt bad for this uber class.
SO i will give a few tips for shadow priests regarding the use of shadow word pain (SWP)... (thx Elmi)...
There are many usages of this power at low rank (rank1).
- I can be used to stun players or pets that resisted one of your fears in PVP. If you are specced correctly, the SWP rank1 will have a good chance to trigger the shadow stun effect. It is specially good when the damn hunters send you their fear resistant kitties.
- Another use is to trigger the shadow weaving effect. In a few seconds and for a very low amount of mana, you can give a +15% bonus on shadow dammage to your fellow priests and warlocks. This is usefull when you are not DPSin in a boss fight and healing your mates. When you have so mana not used and some time, just throw a few SWP rank1 to shadow weave the boss.
I can especially recommand this as a prank to warlock during 58 fight (58 = wu ba = the unscarred = last boss of AQ20). This boss have period where his vulnerability to shadow are really increase aswell as the dammage he takes from shadow. If you have psycho shadow bolting warlocks, just shadowweave this boss, sit back relax and look at the warlocks OTing the boss with 10K+ dammage bolts
It's a lot of fun, but it might lead to awefull wipe if the raid is not hie
