  • Auspicious Spirits (Shadow) no longer cause Shadowy Apparitions to not deal damage. Instead, it now increases Shadowy Apparition damage by 100% in addition to still granting 1 Shadow Orb.
  • Divine Star (Shadow) damage increased by 20%.
  • Mindbender lasts for 20 seconds (up from 15 seconds).
  • Surge of Darkness now has a 12% chance to trigger (up from 10%).
  • Void Entropy (Shadow) damage increased by 80%.
  • Void Tendrils' health has increased by 30%.
[/list]The AS change is pretty big, still means you need to go crit which isn't ideal.

For PvE people are projecting a good 30% crit rating before AS really outpaces COP, has there been any thought to how much is needed in PvP to make the use worthwhile? I'd really like the talent, especially in RBGs, but giving up insta-MindBlast seems reaaaally unrealistic.

Curious about VEnt, too but I've written that talent off for so long I have no idea if 80% buff will bring it up to any sort of reasonable level.

Still no survivability buffs.

And AS and VE buffs mean nothing to us PVP players tbh, as it stands, if we had to cast Mind Blast in current arena environment, we'd be completely fucked.

i agree to this point. but i would like to see AS being a thing in pvp though. i just like the mechanic itself. so maybe if blizzard would buff our crit chance. we maybe can play with this talent

Oh, don't worry--they have you covered! Void tendrils will take an extra auto attack to kill. :confused:

tendrils buff <3 everything else is pretty pointless

entropy actually will hit for a lot but lasts a minute and has no dispel protection and uses orbs (no point in using it over dp ever since it has no burst)
spirits is cool and all but insta mb with a shorter cd, which matters just as much, is too good for orb generation and DP (our only decent heal)
I saw them datamining PoM will have 10 charges? if thats true thats pretty cool too

There's some conjecture that the 10 PoM spell ID was related to the PvE Tier gear but as far as I know nothing is confirmed.

Do you actually like the tendrils buff? It doesn't seem like it would add much to anything, just requires one more attack to get free.

I run tendrils vs some comps and it's just nice to know they'll be a lil bit stronger, but yeah, nothing game changing

Idk maby if it made VT instant aswell it would be a viable option compared to CoP.
What i really would like to see would be inner fire or similar back.

Somehow the phantasm buff i leaked earlier didn't make it.

They planned to add 20% damage reduction to Phantasm. Would certainly help vs melee cleaves.

Yeah that really would've been nice. I'd rather see a buff like that not tied into fade though. Well, I'd be okay with a buff to fade glyph to maybe 20-25%. MD cast time back to .5s would be great too. Especially because with 2 melee and 3 pets on you it ends up being 2s anyway.

i really dont have issues vs melee cleave since the only real comp we can run is god

its really just rogue comps and especially rmd where spriest is just way too easy to kill. ill pre fade and shield every kidney but 10% damage reduction on a fairly long cooldown is just awful when compared to other classes

edit: with resto druid/mage overlords spriest is viable thanks to absurd peels and healing, if rdruid gets a nerf and we dont get a surviv buff the class wouldnt really be viable at a top level imo

Those of you who have Twitter, tweet Holinka about shadow 6.1 survivability, because Resto Druids nerfs are coming, and when they do arrive, we'll be in deep shit.

Changes i'd rather see are any of the following:
Psychic scream 30s cd (down from 45)
Prayer of mending instant heal, usable in shadowform
Phantasm baseline

or how about bringing back 10% damage reduction?

The actual buffs are only for pve reasons. Except maybe tendrils? That option seems useless anyway.
