hey guys, here is the deal....
i start back up wow and played my priest from 55 to now 72. i went through BC really fast when i hit 58. when i got to 68 and hit northrend, i started to slow down till now that i die 3-4 times a night to stuff i know i shouldnt be. i know the exp is slower in northrend but its really annoying because i am in dragonblight now and i have died to 2+ mobs more than i can ever remember.
i am shadow specced. here
is my talent spec right now and this
is my armoury. i was talking to a guildie and they say my health to really low for my level. i can do enchanting so i can help that up and i have been taking more sta based items to equip than int/spirit because i would like to survive so i dont have to do 3 corpse runs a night.
my mods are pitbull and quest helper.
my rotation is MB - VE - DP - SW:P - MF - MB - wand
i shield precombat and when i get 2-3+ mobs on me, i try to take them out one by one, i used psy scream and heal. but i still keep dying.
should i go disc for the rest of the way? just so i can survive? or do i just need to l2p and quit QQing?
if there is anything else you need to know, let me know. i will get you what i can so you can help me

Agreed. You are a little low for Dragonblight. Personally I tried to wrap up borean tundra and howling fjord before going there.
The only thing about your talents that I did differently was take the 2 points from shadow reach and put them into improved VE.
My rotation goes VE -> SW:P -> VT -> MB -> MF then wand if they are around 1k or MF as needed. I would save DP for when I had 2 or 3 on me and I would dot up one then focus on another.
Just made 77 the other night and I rarely die. I also only cared about SP and trying to keep int/spirit (spirit usually ahead for the SP benefit) reasonably near to each other. Stamina just came naturally from quest gear. My stats are out of whack atm cause i am trying to change to an int focus for 80 (and disc) but here's my armory link http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Aggramar&n=Innoue
and you can see where I went with it.

I prefer to use VT+Sw:p+MB+MF
I put Sw:p before MB+MF because of Twisted Faith
+ the Shadow word pain glyph
Gives you %10 more to your mind blast and +20% more on each tick of mind flay.
I skip DP alll together maybe if i talented i would but it just costs too much mana and the dot is a 24 seconds so the ticks are less:(
And if you don't already use Power Word Shield before each pull saves you from wasting a Gcd on ve and prevents all spell pushback while it holds.
