Prepot > Use any On use Trinkets > Precast MB to hit on Pull > SW:P > VT > MF to 100 Insanity while using MB on CD and keeping dots up on all targets > Void Eruption > VF Rotation
Please explain your rotation, if any
Out of Void form:
MB on Cooldown> Maintain dots>MF
In VF for LoTV:
Void Torrent > VB (Void Bolt will refresh dots) > MB > MF for one GCD > VB > MF > VB > MB. This repeats until leaving VF where you will MB on cool down and maintaining dots on the target and SW:D when you can.
PI Can be used on CD when using LoTV unless you need it for a certain scenario.
Shadowfiend should be used above 10 stacks of Voidform. (Shadowfiend Scales with haste)
In VF for S2M:
Void Torrent>VB>MB>MF for one GCD>VB>MF>VB>MB. Using Void torrent on CD. At around 130% haste the rotation changes to VB>MB>VB>MF>VB.
PI should be used as late as possible It is used to sustain at highstacks of voidform, this being around 85+ or when you feel that you need to use it to stay alive. While using PI this is a great time to use Shadowfiend as you will have a massive amount of haste.
After PI has finished it is a matter of staying alive until you can use your third Void Torrent, where you must be smart about using your SW:D.
At some points at high stacks of Voidform it is best to use a SW:D instead of MB simply because you get instant insanity with SW:D whereas MB you need to complete the cast to gain the insanity.
Dispersion is also used to reach the 3rd voidform and to also let SW:D recharge.
Please explain your current stat priority, this includes gems, enchants & set bonusses you are currently going for
My current stat priority is Haste > Crit > Mastery > Int >.
Haste scales with everything, the more haste the better. With high haste levels you are able to stay in VoidForm longer. Haste also reduces cooldown of VB and MB, this speaks for itself the more haste the more VBs and MBs i can cast the more insanity i gain the longer the duration the Voidform. Haste also increases the damage my Void Torrent will do. Also faster casts with MB and MF.
Crit is my second priority, crit allows me to summon Shadowy Apparitions. This happens when a SW:P or a VT tick (If you have taken the Unleash the Shadows trait in the artifact) crits. This is a key mechanic for S2M when paired with Auspicious Spirits as the spirits will generate 4 insanity when they hit the target aswell dealing double damage.
Mastery is my third priority as it directly increases the damage to my SW:P, VT and VB.
Please explain your current talents and glyphs, explain why you are using them, when if and why you change your talents for any current encounter:
Level 15: Twist of Fate :After damaging a target below 35% health, you deal 20% more damage and healing for 10 seconds
Gives Shadow Priests amazing execute. Also while playing S2M can cause your dots to hit extremely hard.
Level 30: Body and Soul:Power Word:Shield gives you a 40% movement speed for 3 seconds
I feel this tier is personal preference. I prefer to use body and soul as it gives me a on demand movement speed when using PW:S. PW:S's cooldown is also effected by haste.
Level 45: Mind Bomb: Leaves a 2 second debuff on the target that stuns the target and all enemies within an 8 yd radius for 4 seconds. 30 second cooldown, replaces Psychic Scream
Mind bomb is a very strong AoE stun, great for dungeons and trash packs and stun able boss mobs.
Level 60: Reaper of Souls: Shadow Word: Death is now usable at 35% and always generates 30 Insanity.
RoS is a must when using S2M as generates a massive 75 insanity, this helps greatly when maintaining insanity at high stacks of Void Form. RoS is also good on fights where they're low health mobs that can be sniped with SW:D for Insanity, damage and to also proc Twist of Fate.
Void Ray, is mainly used in dungeons when you need AoE damage.
Level 75: This tier is interesting because it is based off if you have the legendary belt or above 20% crit or below 20% crit.
If you have the legendary belt, Mangaza's Madness - Increases the maximum number of charges of Mind Blast by 2 - you will take Shadowy Insight: Shadow Word: Pain’s periodic damage has a 10% chance to reset the cooldown on Mind Blast and make your next Blast instant. Taking Shadowy Insight will stop the clash that happens between VB and MB where they both come up at the same time. This changes our rotation a little where you can just spam MB until it runs out of charges, except when you are at higher stacks of voidform and may need to hold on to them. (I dont not have the legendary belt, this information i have gathered from other Shadow Priests that have the belt and from the H2P website/Discord).
If you are above 20% crit or there is another target that you can stay alive long enough for you to benefit from, Auspicious Spirits:Your Shadow Apparitions now deal 100% more damage and generate 4 Insanity, is your go to talent. This is a very RNG talent as you need SW:P and VT to crit. This talent is also great with S2M as it gives you another way of generating insanity and with the amount of haste you can get with S2M the more chances you get to crit with your dots.
If you are below 20% crit is recommended you got San'layn: Increases the damage of Vampiric Touch by 20% and the healing of Vampiric Embrace by 20%. This is a basic damage increase to VT.
Level 90: Power Infusion: Increases haste and Insanity generation by 25% for 20 seconds. 2 minute cooldown.
This talent is great for cold starts when you have no Lingering Insanity and to also help you stay alive in S2M.
Shadow Crash: Hurl a bolt of slow-moving Shadow energy at the destination, dealing X damage to all targets within 8 yards.
This talent is good for dungeons and AOE.
Level 100: Surrender to Madness: Activate to make your next Voidform empowered. During this active, all your Insanity generating abilities make 150% additional Insanity and you are able to fully cast on the move. Once you leave this activated Voidform, you will die, horribly. 10 minute cooldown.
This Talent is the Shit. S2M is the go to talent here if you know how to use it, the potential damage output while in S2M is insane due to the Artifact Trait, Mass Hysteria: Every 1 sec, Voidform increases damage dealt by SW:P and VT by 2%, stacking until Voidform ends.
Legacy of the void is the choice if you are not used to the class or S2M.
Mindspike is a higher DPS talent on ST then Legacy of the Void.
Raid experience (Current and previous)
Started raiding on a warrior in Cataclysm cleared all content, During MoP moved on to a Warlock cleared MSV normal but due to family matters had to skip raiding till ToT where i cleared it on HC and cleared SoO on HC aswell. Moving on to WoD I was raiding on a Shadow priest during that time in Highmaul got to Twin Ogron HC where my guild folded and i took a break from raiding and came back to the game after the major class changes before Legion was released.
