Improved Improved Spirit Tap
Return to board index
Well based on Sinespe's guide, we have 5 points floating around.
And aparently our options are IST, Inner Focus, Improved Vampuric Embrace, and shadow affanity.
It was inclined the IST should be ruled out since you only gain about 15-20 spell power from it.
I'm actually leaning towards IST because out of all those options it's the only one that directly increases my SP.
with out Affanity I don't ever really steal agro from a tank(I never really saw a shadow priest pull agro ever really) at all, and the extra healing from IVE doesn't seem to help since VE isn't raid wide. Inner focus provides a free spell to my already unlimited mana and a increaed chance for only one of my spells to crit.
Maybe I'm looking at this the wrong way but IST seems to be more usefull since it yeilds something be it insignificant to my DPS.
I'm new to shadow so I have a feeling I'm wrong about this but can anyone confirm if the other talants can become of some use
Healing Stream Totem isn't raid-wide either.
I've actually noticed that when I use certain buffs like my trinket haste, a get a haste buff from my Crazy Alchemist potion, or BL. I actually can do enough single target dps to steal a mob from the tank if there are multiple mobs, especially if my MB crits.
even worse, I almost always pull agro when a tank is group pulling and I mind sear too early.
This was even more apparent when I was with a bearoff tank.(maybe it's the spec or maybe just bad players)
I later took the talant to reduce threat and I barely ever need to stop dpsing.
Hell I even dps before the mob is taunted and it's no issue.
Before I started this spec I never even knew shadow could pull anything off of a tank.
Shadow affanity is actually alot better than I originally thought.
IVE however seemed very weak to me, I barely notice any change to the amount of life I give. It seems like I only give about a couple 40-50 more life with the talant at max rank.
Inner focus isn't too bad either if I save for droping an add that MUST go down or something like that.
I really don't know where to put the other 2 points now though.
This post was from a user who has deleted their account.
I've also noticed this when I dps straight for about 5-6 minutes on a sinlge target I tend to get a little low on mana with about 1 minutes still left on my Fiend.
I didnt notice much of a difference with points in IST either.
I suppose that it's inevitable to avoid using dispersion for mana untill you get better gear with more int.
