Please note: This is Pre WOTLK
I don’t like the idea of having to change specs for PVP it costs money, and its a pain. I have been hesistant devoting myself to PVP because its not the only thing I enjoy. I go on PVP Spurts usually with a goal for a piece of gear in mind.
So I think the time has come for me to get serious about PVPing in a proper spec, at least temproarily – I don’t want to go Disc untill I find a Arena team that wants to have a serious go. How does one find those? I’m currently replacing all my Gladiators Gear with Merciless – I have the Epic PVP Trink worth 40K honor, and in a complete set I am now 494 Resilience.
I have been giving some thought as to what Talents I would like to have at my disposal in PVP but some are going to require a fine balance as to what I want, and what are worth paying the points to have… what I can have with the whole 61 point restriction thing…
I want silence
I want improved Mana burn
I want Shadow Form
Improved Inner fire
I want Reflective sheild
I’d love pain supression
But I just don’t have enough points for that…..
Wowhead has a recommended Shadowpriests PVP Build 11/2/47 – and it seems to have a good use of as many tools available without sacrificing the Damage. It will still make you squishy.
Priest PVP Build (I want to try for a less squishy – as much damage as possible build.
the only problem I can see is Disp spec’d priests are great for survivability, which is great for arena, and given that they can heal or damage- a valued member of the team but In Bg’s thats not necessarily a good thing. Being harder to kill might be good if you have the flag on your back in WSG but for the rest, your not a healer or a damager so thats the trade off. Survive, and maybe die less. But do less too.
I am going to respec to the following, I want to Keep shadow form, which means I won’t be healing. But I want things like improved mana burn, Silence, More Armor, better spirit,
So lets see how it goes.
NOTE: this is Pre WOTLK and Pre Patch 3.0 – I will be doing an updated Post for post patch.
