This time not being fault of the class balance, but me actually doing something wrong. Big frustration cause I can't figure out why our other SP is doing 15k more DPS than me with same gear level. I don't understand :(


I had that same problem once too (EDIT: As a shadow priest)! Never figured it out. Frustrated me to no ends BECAUSE SURELY I WAS BETTER THAN THAT GUY! :evil: Seriously though. :lol:
Shadow Priest was my second favourite spec before I retired (after Protection Paladin of course!), I just really enjoyed the micro-managing of all the DoTs and whatnot.

In 5.0/1 I was actually better than that guy, we did comparable DPS on ST and I was far ahead on multitarget.

Now suddently in T15 I'm doing shit compared to him. The fact that noone seembs to find out what I'm doing wrong frustrates me a lot.

Dunno much about Spriests, but would it have something to do with his higher ticks of Mind Flay, Divine Star and Mind Blast?

To me, it just seems like he has a slightly tighter rotation. /shrug though

Well, both your stats and talents seem to differ from each other? Of course, for all I know you might've both changed your talents and stats since these logs. But he's got about 1400 more spellpower than you (not sure if that's much anymore) and more crit, while you beat him on haste. I haven't kept up with theorycrafting of any kind since I quit, but I always found the crit vs. haste arguments for SP to be a little vague. And then there's the talents, not sure how much they matter, but you've got Power Infusion and he's got Twisted Fate. Twisted Fate seems to have a larger possible uptime, if he's good at sneaking in small heals (or maybe the Shadow Priests nearly constant off-healing triggers it? I don't know). Just some thoughts!

EDIT: Oh and Mindbender vs. Solance & Insanity. No idea how good Mindbender is, but +33% Mind Flay damage per orb consumed on Devouring Plague targets seem pretty strong! Again, just some thoughts, I really don't know the actual numbers.

On Horridon I've pretty much changed talents every attempt, to see if changing talents would work.

We both run usually Insanity + PI, taking ToF instead of PI on Horridon.

I don't know why I kept writing Twisted Fate and not Twist of Fate. :lol: Sent you a PM with some logs and stuff, maybe it's useful, maybe it's a waste of time - in any case, worth a shot in case it's helpful!

You are right that he got better uptime than me. I suppose I'm doing something wrong with dot applications / refreshing.

Maybe you're better at not standing in fire and that's why his uptime is better. Always good to have the healers on your side, in case they have to make a snap decision on who to let live. :wink: :lol:

Uptime can have a lot to do with just having the right addons to remind you, though. Maybe it's time to redo your UI!

That said, I'm using the same UI of a SP friend of mine, who is MUCH better than me (has always been ranking in top 50 on all fights since years), and if it works for him, it should in theory work for me >_<

Game is crashing, often. Getting some kind of "can't allocate memory" error, especially when moving into a really populated area (i.e., porting into 2-moons, etc).

It did this before a bit, and I (mostly) fixed it by turning down the graphics settings. The crashes have REALLY picked up frequency after 5.2, though. :(

My graphics settings are still low. Not sure what else to try. Don't run too many addons, really - the only memory-intensive ones I can think of are Auctioneer and Recount, but disabling those doesn't seem to help.

Anyone else experiencing this?

He's got a bit of a gear advantange (tf weapon and better second trinket) which is a large part of the difference on JR, and his multi-dotting and death sniping for orbs on horridon tries is just plain better.

Recent change I made for my lock was to have my tidyplates change colour when mobs dropped below 20% hp (shadowburn range) and use a mouseover shadowburn macro - this vastly improved my shadowburn sniping on low hp mobs. You may wish to try something similar with death.

Think only certain themes support it. I switched to Quatre for that functionality, then go into Tidy Plates Hub: Damage, go down to Health bar mode, change the bar color to health, and adjust the health threshold sliders further down.

Well this night ended with me being replaced with a offspec DPS due to excess of badness.

... :(

The Auction House isn't the issue. The itemization is the core issue. Fix that and suddenly no one cares about the AH. The crafting patterns take a step towards that and the redid Legendaries help a bit.
