You are one sad, bitter dude.
You bothered to respond to your lies with "k"?
Fact is I'm just giving your ilk a hard time whenever I see you guys crying about spriest. One of the best class/specs in the entire game right now and you guys still find things to qq about. The guys on top deserve a little prodding especially when they are unappreciative of their good fortune. Have a nice a day. K.
No, I bothered to reply to your semi-coherent babble with a 'k'.
Other ranged bring better sustained damage, better burst, more CC.
Shadow's sustained damage is decent, but not game breaking compared to other classes.
Shadow's burst is laughable compared to other classes. We don't even have a baseline DPS cooldown. In order to have a DPS cooldown, we need to forsake one of two talents that are both functionally and mathematically superior.
Shadow's CC is fairly terrible with PVE in mind. It's not bad in a PVP setting, but is not out of line compared to other caster, especially if you know how to counter the psyfiend.
In terms of PVE, shadow has a single decent healing CD in the smaller group-play formats and void shift in terms of utility. Vampiric Embrace is much weaker than comparable healing cooldowns from other hybrid classes like Moonkin Tranqility or Shaman Healing Tide, if you're running any content larger than a 5 man heroic.
The only other utility shadow brings is Void Shift on a six minute CD, which is admittedly very useful, Leap of Faith which is very situational at best, and silence which has a longer cooldown than other, comparable spells.
Shadow does have a number of strong survivability tools, though, such as strong self healing, talented abilities such as phantasm and spectral guise, and dispersion, though these tools are primarily effective in a pvp setting. In a PVE setting, shadow's survivability is no more notable than any other caster DPS.
