On my server I’m an Itsy fish in a big ocean of better geared and skilled players, add to that everyone seems to have bought their shadow priests out of the closet with the 3.3 changes.
But this is a boast dps post. I guess because feeling good about my damage is more important to me now since I’m not raiding regularly, and can’t compare often. I think I am going to hit a hurdle once everyone gets their Icc gear, and I will be another ‘casual’ in ok gear – but not even close enough to what is available. unless I join a guild with free raiding spots. Following your friends only works if you get to play with them.
I grabbed a Voa pug, and you can see from the numbers that there were huge gearing/skill gaps – and I had some awesome competition by way of another shadow priest who made me work for it, but yeah probably my best effort yet.
