Where’s my Replenishment?

Shadow Priest T10 4 set bonus  makes procing replenishment a dps loss.

But ” A good shadow priest…   ”

1) Proc’s Replenishment because we are the original mana battery B*tches

2) Does what is good for themselves   ( and the raid by doing awesome dps!)

3) Trys and finds a happy compromise like a good raider should.

I aim for # 3

But I need a little help.   Replenishment lasts for 14 sec   I could proc it so it overlaps more if I used Mindblast on Cool down  but I don’t have to unless people are having serious mana issues.

I set Power Auras the add on up to show when Replenishment is active – so If I am not seeing it often enough I can deliberately proc it.

I have a regular 10 ICC group now  ( does 2 weeks so far make it regular?)  and  I am the only source for replenishment.

It seems kind of silly though,  that of all the things to be concerned about in a raid – that replenishment becomes so important when it’s not there

    I find it funny how at the start of the expansion youhad to look hard to find a group without replenishment, hunters, pallys, and shadowpreists would all be providing it while doing there optimal dps. But now blizzard has slowly changed the classes around so that only rets provide it without dps loss,

    I have a love/hate relationship with Replenishment as a healer. Raid encounters as a holy paladin have two polarized settings: forget about mana, or micromanage your mana. Replenishment counts for so much blue bar it’s absurd (raid-buffed, Replenishment is 5,136 every minute for me).

    I find it unfair that it should be a DPS loss for you to sneak in a buff that the encounter is tuned around having. It becomes an awkward button and necessitates an addon or macro for management. That’s not fun.

    I don’t believe a MB proccing Replenishment is a dps loss. It can fit nicely into your rotation once every 15 seconds pretty easily if you try. In fact, math at shadowpriest.com has pretty much said that the dps loss or gain is either minimal enough to not matter (like single digits or maybe as much as 20-30 dps) or that your dps could still be improved by improving other areas of your rotation such as dot uptime. Just a thought. Consider using it right after VT every other time you cast VT, or using MB and SW:Death to better sync up your rotation if you need one extra GCD before dots need refreshing. Lots of ways you can work it out actually, but they’re not all dps losses.

    When you put them side by side, taking into account the DPET, it does not look like a big difference. Open up your toon in RAWR(you need to use 2.x, not 3.x, unless they have added the option to change your rotation since I last looked). In the options tab you can change your rotation, just drop MB below MF and apply it. You will see a much higher than 20-30 DPS gain(depending on gear levels, but definitely in late ICC gear. This is because DPET does not take into consideration having to move to get out of fire, just straight pew, and this is where lab results and real world results differ so much. The more you stand still the closer the numbers get, but this is easily fixed by going from “No MB” to “For Replen”, or even “MB on CD” depending on the fight, phase, or as needed by your raid.

    This is going to be very handy for me, because I have wondered when my replens are ticking lately. Does this only take into account your own, or does it show when anyone procs it, or only you have it on yourself? Would be interesting to have an addon that tells you how many of the total mana users have replen on them at any time.
