Yeah, we pretty much have to win in like 30 seconds or we lose.

Btw, what were they doing so different compared to us?

100% agreed. Sytallix somehow always outdamages trium in our mirror games, and I for the life of me cannot figure out how he's doing it.

The reason we tunnel fuzion is that basically I'm gonna oom in like 15 seconds regardless :)

Some Shadow Tips and Tricks I've Found (alot deal wtih macros):

Can use Vamp touch to eat up spell reflects.

Can use a non-channeling macro to allow you to spam mindflay so it recasts instantly without overlapping before 3 ticks...and wasting your mana.

Can Macro Engineering Gloves haste to Vamp Touch so you can prep a target with all three dots, get off 1-2 quick flays, and be ready for insane burst (becasue by then, you can use a +Spell power trinket like disks since itll be off cooldown from the eng gloves).

Can macro Shadowfiends "shadowcrawl" to an innerfocus/Mindblast/Platinum disks trinket setup for incredible burst.

Can macro Dispersion to cancel with Shadow Word: Death so if a target is really low you can pop out and kill it (great for sniping kills when guys switch off you in 3v3/5v5)without needing to press a different button.

Can create an abolish disease cast sequence macro the casts abolish first, then a few regular cure diseases afteword until abolish wears out. This is incredibly useful for having 2 things "ticking" to remove diseases from DKs. They should never be able to keep them up on you or a teammate by doign this.

there are some others but I gotta run, hope that's somewhat helpful.

you can attempt to spam dispel at the exact same time as a cc is about to end on a shaman or druid, and with a lil bit of luck dispel ns

-use hymn of hope while sf is out to get more mana back


I dont think this would be true.

You gain 20% more mana while doing hymn and you will gain more from Sf but once hymn expires you will also lose more. Net result will be close to the same no?

No because shadowfiend gives you back a percentage of your max mana, meaning that per hit he will return more because your max mana is temporarily higher - even when the hymn of hope buff expires, you will still have gotten more mana back from each of shadowfiend's hits; that additional mana will not be taken away, you're confusing the two mechanics :P.

I didnt really understand this tip either, thanks for clearing it up.


Do most of you do this? I can say i've usually been waiting until almost rock bottom and then hymning and burning (not mana burning, but using it all as quickly as possible) through that additional mana that is going to dissapear in a few seconds. Do you think using it with shadowfiend would be more effective?

-the best spell against spell reflect is mind soothe


If you're shadow, vampiric embrace is better. No more cooldown, zero mana, and if you SWD it actually heals you from the backlash damage. XD

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

you can put rank 14 renew on somebody, then put rank 13 renew on as well. it works like divine spirit

e: doesn't do anything though, the rank 13 one doesn't tick

No, you're supposed to love someone for who they are, not for what they offer you in sexual gratification. Two men can be in a gay, loving relationship without sex.

Some really minor and obvious tips:

- When a rogue is stunlocking you, never fear right after the stunlock ends if you can help it at all, they are most likely going to cast a cloak right at the end of the stunlock.

- Fear tends to 'bug' and not work if you spam it coming out of a CC, cyclone in particular. Almost every priest will be familiar with the fear bug where you spam it and nothing happens but the spell goes on cooldown.
