Why haven't YOU rolled a shadow priest yet?

It's a matter of opinion. I rolled my priest to heal, and I've always hated shadow. It's alright for questing and soloing, but there are many other class specs that are more fun to run dungeons and groups with. I only keep my shadow spec for questing and world pvp.

If someone asks me to join a group, then asks if I have a DPS spec, I won't be joining them.

Same here. I was never a big fan of shadow, but I decided to try it out to see if the new mechanics were more of my style. Personally, I still enjoy the healing specs more.

I haven't gone shadow because I can't do DPS specs. If you're a healer or tank spec, and something attacks you, you have time to stop and consider your response. DPS is all about killing stuff quickly before it kills you, and I just can't think that fast.

I first leveled my Shaman from 85-90...It was painfully slow. I did not enjoy 88-90.
Then, I leveled my DK from 85-90 and absolutely loved it!!! It was so fast and I could pull mobs by the dozens without breaking a sweat.
Now, I started leveling my S-Priest. It is faster to level than the Shammy, but not the DK. That being said, I am loving it more than the other classes! I am currently 89 and from what I am seeing, this is going to be my MoP main toon.
While I do not feel "overpowered", I do feel viable. More than that, I am loving the numerous amounts of "tricks up my sleeve" I feel I have when rolling a S-Priest. Despite being a cloth-wearer, I feel 1,000 times less squishy than the lackluster rogue class....and even less squishy then the mail-wearing shaman. Maybe it's because i know how to play this class better than the others....not sure, but 1 thing i do know for certain is: I am loving it...enjoying WoW when on my S-Priest and will try my hand out in PvP onceI hit 90.

LOL...This is funny! I know what you mean though. I sometimes feel this way too. I guess it's because I'm getting older. I did not used to be this way.

I love being Shadow, have been since t4 in BC. I've rolled a few alts here and there but always come running back to my priest. We're just so awesome...and even now in MOP I'm having no difficulties holding my weight in raids when it comes to dps'ing and assisting with offheals.

In my opinion in regards to questing in MoP, shadow is king. Bursting down Quest mobs is no problem, and you can typically take 3-4 at a time, with that being said i believe that the main selling point of leveling a spriest is SURVIVABILITY; As a spriest you have SO much utitility (Feathers, Dispersion, PwS, Psycic scream, Fear pet, etc.) Getting ganked is close to impossible. I have escaped from groups of hordies without taking hardly any damage. Which greatly decreases the time spent leveling. I just hope Spriests are at least as viable in high end PvE as they were last expansion.

DoTs... I hate em'
I'll happily heal with this toon, but I'm rolling a shaman to suit my hybrid needs.

I've always been this way. It's not really surprising; executive dysfunction is one of the symptoms of autism spectrum disorders, and three of five psychological professionals surveyed believe I may have Asperger syndrome. I guess that explains why, in high school, I was ranked second in my class but somehow took thirty minutes to pack a lunch because I kept getting confused. :D

Accuser:
DoTs... I hate em'

That's a large part of why I couldn't stand my warlock.

Also I hate pets. I barely have the brains to control my own character, let alone an extra one.

The changes are alright, I would much rather how we were back in Cataclysm though. I know Blizzard won't go back and that's fine but man it seemed more fun. Once I got a more proper rotation down and switched out a talent or two, it was much better. Mind Blast and Mind Spike proc mad for me when im in dungeons, and coupled with the damage from the DoTs and at times my pet, it's enjoyable.

Once I ding 90 though I'm taking a break and leveing my Warrior to 90.

Been Shadow since BC. I think the new mechanics are . . .meh. I don't PvP shadow since I was better at Disc, but from I've been reading I'm better off staying shadow . . .meh.

I hate everything about shadow's mechanics now. Talents, devouring plague change, whatever the 3 charges you get are called (shadow orbs?)

i have never not enjoyed playing as shadow until now

anyways that's just like my opinion man


I hated it until now.

So, I think it is official. Shadow is the most fun spec of any class to play. The new changes are awesome, and there are even some awesome minor glyphs (My celestial dragon looks awesome in shadowform).

The only question remaining is "Why haven't YOU rolled a shadow priest yet?"

I guess another question could be, "How do you feel about the changes"?


LMAO WHAT?

This spec is so damn boring now, I hate it.
