I have been told that I am doing my burst all wrong on my shadow priest. I have had my spellpower on-use trinket macroed to devouring plague, and pretty much just when I have 3 orbs + a mindblast proc or 2, I say I'm ready to go, and then I use devouring plague + sp trinket, halo if I'm spec'd into it, shadowfiend, and then I just use mindflay.

I have been told instead of binding it to dp that I should bind it to something like vt or maybe even mb, then apply dots, mb, etc., and that dp should be the very last thing that I do.

Can any priests confirm this or tell me what their usual use of spellpower trinket involves?

Obviously..seeing as u do dmg with other spells to, do it when you know you can do dmg - all your dots should be empowered by the ON USE

Yeah, if I were you I would make a separate bind for it and not macro it to anything unless you run with Power Infusion, then I would probably macro it to PI.

You literally have no burst cds outside of 3 orb dp and fiend - i used to have a seperate bind for it and popped it whenever I could dish out damage

The current season is at a very good spot balance-wise. There is a comp variety that hasn't been seen in the game since s8.
