Was just wondering what everyone's thoughts on how shadowcleave is going to fair in the upcoming patch. What will its strength and weaknesses be, optimal classes/specs for dk/lock/x and how it will match up against other popular comps. Shadowcleave has always been one of my favourite comps to run and it would be great to go back to playing it.

I'll be trying it out, however warriors will probably still be better.

I doubt dk/x/x will be better than warrior/x/x until dks, or warriors, see major changes. Warriors bring so much to the table beyond damage output.

This has been true since Cataclysm, and Scleave has been viable multiple times since then.

Not really. DK's used to be much farther ahead on damage and not as far behind on utility (or even at times probably ahead on that too). Also ranged snare, pet stun, strang and grip used to mean a lot more for peeling than they do now.

Dk's are just really self sufficient with cc breaks and self healing, which doesn't seem to fit into many comps.

It basically only fits into triple dps. But even then there's better picks xD

I actually tried rerolling to Warrior, don't know why, but it just didn't cut the cookie for me no matter how good I become at it. Anyone experienced the same?

In some ways I prefer being the best solo class even if it hurts our 3s viability. It feels really good to win 1vs2's and 2vs3's.

thing about dk's is if you dont have good partners willing to play with you, you're going to absolutely hate playing a dk

dunno personally if i was trying to run XLS as the lock or shaman i'd take almost any class over a dk lol

Every season it's a struggle to find people to play with. Drains the fun out of the game really.

I'm lucky enough to know a good warlock who enjoys shadowcleave, but it has to be an okay comp for him to bother with playing it. Otherwise he'll just jump over to RLS, which is generally better
