Let me first say i need some serious help. I am new to shadow priest and have been playing for about 2 weeks. I dont consider myself godlike or even a great player, id say im average or a little above average. I used to be 1800 rating back in wotlk and havent played much since then, until recently..

Here is my problem, I get wrecked by warriors hard, (most melee i get rolled) but warriors just destroy me. I feel like i cant really do anything against them. I cant cast VT, or MB, i cant fear cause they break it. I cant run away cause perma slows. I am basically putting up SWP and hoping for instant mind blasts while i shield run away and put some heals up.

Any high ranked Shadow priests out there have any advice on how to beat a warrior? I just cant see how this matchup is winnable unless the priest is way better than the warrior.


TLDR: i am getting owned by warriors as a shadow priest, how do i beat them? Serious answers please.

Assuming this is a 1v1 scenario. In which case, you pretty much have 0 chance to win. They counter you in almost every way. That said, if you RNG out and get 3 orbs in the first 5 globals you may be able to damage with DP / VE / SFiend while you fake until you get a VT off. That said again though, 9999999/10 they will just wreck you.

if you play a disc priest you are not a real human being

ok so its not just me, i asked talbadar this question last night on his stream after posting this, and he said "that matchup is hopeless". He pretty much said you cant beat them.

Now ive got 2 gladiators telling me is hopeless. I guess ill stop trying to duel every warrior i see now. Ive lost about 20 in a row haha

This has a direct comparison between SP & Warrior written by a Global champion and multi rank 1:

If you have time can you please give a brief overview on how you play in this duel? I would greatly appreciate it.
