Blizz really…

@ 83
VT + DP + SW:P + MF + MB = Over 9000 MANA

I should not have to spec. into “Masochism” for PVE and the weakest dispel protection of “Sin and Punishment” for PVP is a joke watching almost 8K mana blown away with dispels.

This is NOT right

Why shouldn't a priest have to spec into masochism? My level 50 shadow priest specced into it. It's a good mana return talent, especially for leveling.

You really should spec into Masochism for PvE, it's a great talent.

But mana costs are utterly ridiculous. In Beta at 85, out of my 70k mana pool, I was spending 10k just to put my DoTs up. That's 1/7 of my mana gone in the first 3 seconds of a fight. That doesn't make any sense. SW:P doesn't cost any more mana for the rest of the fight due to Pain and Suffering, but VT and DP are refreshed quite often, and they absolutely devastate your mana.

It's incredibly not fun to have to pop every mana cooldown as soon as their available. I can no longer use Shadowfiend for extra burst or Dispersion for damage reduction because I need to use them on cooldown to prevent my mana from dropping to 0. As far as I understood, only healers (and Arcane Mages) were supposed to have to worry about mana, but Shadow is the most mana intensive caster spec right now.

Hey at 83 for an arcane mage its 5K mana per cast of arcane blast at a 4stack. i only have 50K mana thats 10 casts and i'm oom. So if im not carful I can go oom from full in less then 20 seconds. its worse with arcane poer active, than its less then 10 seconds

You all think SW:Death should be added to a Spriest rotation above the execute range for mana return?

So spend 1200 more mana and a DPS LOSS to slow the OOM process? NO

YOU DO NOT RECEIVE A MANA RETURN FOR DAMAGE ABSORBED FYI

dude use a macro.

/cancelaura Power Word:Shield
/cast Shadow Word:Death

you HAVE to use death as part of your rotation above 25%...HAVE TO. they even said it on beta. this is intended. you need machoism, its a must take talent.

All that said, priest spells are ridiculously expensive. I really don't know why, but its always been crazy intensive since lvl 60.

I think that in pve you will take damage often enough to make the talent worth taking even if you take SW:Death off your hotbar.
