It seems like when I go to burst a target... Their health bar barely moves. Am I just that undergeared? Did I screw up my enchants and gear choices that badly (I was prioritizing Crit and Multistrike prior to reading that it seems almost all good Spriests are going Haste+Mastery)? Is my burst rotation totally wrong?

Here's generally what I'm doing for burst:
-Getting 5 orbs.
-Wait for MB to be almost off CD.
-Psychic Horror the burst target.
-Mind Blast
-Devouring Plague
-Dump any and all Mind Spikes
-Mind Blast
-Devouring Plague

I've never been stuck in the 1600 bracket before but I seem to be forever stuck there this season. Am I playing bad comps? I do try to coordinate burst with my other dps teammate.

I've been playing:
-Spriest/Warlock/Paladin
-Spriest/Warlock/Shaman
-Spriest/Mage/Paladin

Any help is appreciated, arena is becoming more frustrating than fun for me lately because it seems like I can't effectively peel or put good pressure out alone to help take pressure off my teammates. So if I'm not focused (which I am often), I'm not able to do much to help.

Nerf shadow, buff shadow, it matters not. I will still play it until I quit WoW.

You are using shadow fiend and on-use trinket right? :)

haste/mastery is >>> crit/multi first of all

dont bother bursting unless you have cc on healer

prioritize keeping dots up and mashing dispel like a hero until your mage lands a sheep (or you get a fear), then blow your load

even one deep/sheep into silence should force trinket or cds at minimum, and that's not counting if your mage can get multiple sheeps or you land a fear

rinse repeat until something dies

expect your target to take literally zero damage unless the enemy healer is in cc

start from that position and work from there

No because the difference is when I play a comp i play it close to skill cap

if anyone needs to be banned, it's you. You do nothing but sit on AJ being a passive aggressive idiot that nobody likes, sorry you stink of washing up liquid.

Feel free to call me an idiot because I'm a hunter or some stupid ass remark but I've actually written all this down on paper

I actually made an appearance at DH2014 and I met up with people from twitch who were involved with the dota 2 / cs tournies that where there, I talked about the game from my perspective as a professional player and we actually shared a lot of opinions. All I'm saying is a lot of people will be VERY surprised about the future of this game in the esport world :)

I've been playing:

-Spriest/Warlock/Shaman
-Spriest/Mage/Paladin

Here's your problem. Change it to:
-Spriest/Mage/Druid
-Spriest/Mage/Druid
-Spriest/Mage/Druid

And enjoy the free points.

Priest forums are so bitter these days.. I wish I could still play interesting comps in 2s without feeling useless at low rating against surv/rdruid
