Shadow Priest DPS Guide

Level 120, Patch 8.3

Shadow Priest PvE Guide - 8.3

Welcome to this End-Game World of Warcraft Class Guide for Shadow Priests. This guide is simplified and streamlined to give effective information and advice without over-complicating things. It's intended for players who want to excel at DPS without having to deeply theorycraft every item and encounter or try and digest massive walls of text.

For competitive end-game raiders, we suggest explicitly using simulation tools, spreadsheets, and your own judgement to produce optimal stat weights, talent builds, and ability prioritizations as they ultimately depend on your character profile, raid needs, and preference of playstyle.
