Please explain in detail your opener.

As a shadow priest you pre-pot at 2 seconds on the pull timer and then start casting Mind Blast at roughly 1.5 seconds after that you get both dots up starting with Vampiric Touch and ending the cast by putting Shadow Word Pain on the target, Once complete you follow a priority system as i will explain below.

Please explain your rotation, if any.

Shadow doesn't have a rotation so to speak it's more of a priority order and because our spec has two phases i will give a priority order for both.

Outside of Void Form =
1. Cast MB off CD.
2. Keep both dots of your dots up.
3. Use Mind Flay

Inside of Void Form =
1. Use all the free Void Bolts your 4 set gives you.
2. Void Torrent straight after the 4 set providing the mechanics let you - You want to try keep this on CD as fast as possible. (If not, cast Mind Blast, Mind flay then Void Bolt until you are able to use it)
3. Void Bolt.
4. Mind Blast.
5. Use Power Infusion at 18 - 22 stacks of Void Form depending on legendary's and haste levels.
6. Dot additional targets.
7. Shadow Fiend on the last 12 seconds of Power Infusion.
8. Mind Flay.

The whole goal for a shadow priest is to get into Void Form asap and to hold onto that Void Form for as long as possible.

Please explain your current stat priority, this includes gems, enchants & set bonusses you are currently going for

My stat priority is currently:

Haste: to 9625, with buff food to 10k - Anything from 10-12k haste is considered ideal, of course 12k would be best but the current gear NH provides does't allow you to get there easily so i settle on getting at least 10k and then start focusing on mastery.

Mastery: as much as i can get my hands on, Mastery increases in value once i break 10k haste but i wouldn't sacrifice haste for mastery if it was going to put me below 10k.

Crit: When running with the San'layn talent you want to aim for around 4k crit after that it starts loosing value.

Vers: I dont try and get any versatility as it is by far the weakest stat for shadow in comparison to the other three.

To accomplish this i gem and enchant for haste when ever possible.

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:

My default talents would be:

Twist of Fate - Far more damage output than the other two choices.
Body and Soul - You can control when you want the speed increase.
Mind Bomb - Great for a mass stun on mobs such as the Parasitic Fetter adds on Botanist for one example.
Lingering insanity - This pairs very well with Legacy of the void and gives you a higher dps output than the other options.
San'layn - This talent scales with the amount of mastery you have and as mastery is our go to talent after haste makes this talent superior to the other choices in most situations i will give an example below.
Power infusion - This talent when used correctly can gain you so much insanity and keep you in void form far longer than the other talents in this tier.
Legacy of the void - With the 3 Void Torrent Surrender to madness build gone (Thank You Blizzard!) this talent currently outweighs the dps you can now get with surrender to madness making it the go-to talent for this tier.

These talents do sometimes change depending on the fight for example on Botanist i would take Auspicious Spirits over San'layn and i would swap out a trinket to give me more crit. I do this because there is more than two targets up for the majority of the fight and more chances to crit with shadow word: pain which is golden for Auspicious Spirits and should give me longer Void form duration's.

Previous guilds and reasons for leaving.

KRAZY FOOLS [Turalyon] (Vanilla) – Guild Disbanded.

Imperium [Nagrand] (WotLK) – Had a break due to exams.

Consequence [Nordrassil] (Cataclysm) – Computer broke and my laptop would not run wow very well by the time I got a new one I had been removed for inactivity.

Amused to Death [Defias Brotherhood] (MoP) – Guild Disbanded

NoM [Twisting Nether] (WoD) – Left because I got a new job and could not make the raid times.

Pure [Turalyon] (WoD) – Even though I performed well they didn’t want a shadow in on progression and was told I would be on the bench and only brought for farm kills – That was not what I joined the guild for so I left. Can provide logs if needed.

Twilight Rebels [Ravencrest] (WoD) – I created this guild struggled to get people at the end of WoD so merged with Omnicide.

Omnicide [Ravencrest] (WoD) – After my guild had merged with Omnicide only two of us were taken to progress (Myself and a boomkin) they completely disregarded all the other guildies and caused a lot of tension within the guild this conflicted with the terms we had agreed to merge on and so we left.

Forsaken Bloodline [Ravencrest] (WoD) – I joined to help them with mythic archi with the understanding of a few weeks before Legion I was going to leave and start up my guild again.

Catalyst [Ravencrest] (WoD/Legion) – After helping Forsaken Bloodline as much as I could, I left and formed Catalyst which is where I have been the GM and RL. We have been doing pretty well we peaked at world 504 recently but since then progression seems to have halted and the officers and I have come to an agreement for me to step down as it would mean nearly re-building the guild currently which I really have lost the patience to do and is effecting my family life with the amount on time I am putting into it. I would like to raid a little less and take a step back from being an officer/GM whilst keeping a high quality of raiding in the time I do play or I fear I will just loose interest in wow completely.

Reason behind applying for Weeping Angels.

I'm applying to Weeping Angels because your raid days/times fit me pretty well and you progress for being a 3 day raiding guild is exactly what i'm looking for currently. Seeing that you guys have been around for a while shows me stability and dedication.

Write any additional information you feel you need to tell in your apply.

What do you call a three legged Donkey?..


P.S. I pressed Enter by mistake and posted a blank application DOH!

just wondering why pot at 2 but no attack till 1.5? know it's a minor detail, but something that stands out.

i would also like to hear if you're still using neck due to not getting a better one? or just finding the on-use good enough to keeping it?

watching your latest VoD and what you've written in your app, you seem to have it all covered, and you seem to do well at mechanics from what i saw, minor mistakes only.

my "concern" is ilvl.

Just a last question, what legendaries do you have to work with? now that 7.2 is coming up and that will also mean our "BiS" legendaries are changing.
Applicant
Hey Millerz,

Thanks for your reply.

I use my pre-pot currently at 2 seconds because our guild is prone to pull a little early and id just rather have the option than risk it.

I am using the neck on multi target fights when using the legendary back mainly because I need the haste and not having a higher level neck with haste. For most other fights and progression normally I would use prydaz instead then swap my back for tier and gloves for skorpid handlers which puts my ilvl at 904.

My current legendarys are:
Prydaz
Helm (Forgot it's name)
Kj trinket
Mother Shoulders
Zek's Back.

Regarding my ilvl I've recently dropped some from the weapon by obtaining better relic traits and but slightly lower ilvls and when using the neck it kind of drops the ilvl quite a bit.

I hope this answers your questions.

Starkerz.

Do you have any thoughts on how weak/strong your legendaries will be in 7.2 and how the heirachy will change at all?
Applicant
Hey Anke,

In my opinion it's quite hard to tell currently however if I was to go out on a limb id, say the Helm will replace the bracers as BiS and the best combo will most likely be shoulders and helm I think this because at high VF stacks that 3% damage increase will far surpass any other legendary but again this is just how I see things happening.

I hope this answers your question.

Starkerz.
Mistanke
I really like both your application and your well thought out responses, so I'm going to go ahead and accept your application here.

I assume you're saved for this week, so transferring by next Thursday would be great. We do also clear Heroic on Wednesday, but this is completely optional and there's no pressure/requirement to attend, but it's there if you're interested.

Welcome!
Starkerz
Great News!

Unfortunately i am saved yes but I will start the process Monday if not before, Gotta figure out what to buy/sell to get my gold over there without paying a bomb lol.

See you on the other side :)
