Shadow Priests Hit Harder
1) you have no idea if he out gears you (armory him)
2) the classes are balanced for level 90. Even at 90, they're not balanced around 1v1. So your 1v1 below level 90 will unsurprisingly not be balanced. Shadow was ridiculous at 85 but is more balanced at 90. Get to 90 and it should be a different ball game.
I havent touched either affliction or spriest since 5.0x, but numbers can be easily tweaked and i still think the warlock has a better playstyle and brings more to a group. IMO a lot of the enjoyment was lost with the spriest and the release of cataclysm.
