I posted this over at Shadowpriest.com but thier not as heavily populated over there as here so the help I needed didnt happen.
This is mainly for Shadowpriests so the healing guys can look away now :)
I'am sort of stuck in the middle between Normal instances and Heroics at the moment as far as my damage goes.
In Normals I'am in the top two damage spots every instance, latley mainly at the number one spot.
In Heroics I sit firmly in fourth everytime and seem to be a mile behind everyone else as far as damage goes.
Not a little a lot.
Its really starting to get to me as I dont know what the problem is and I dont want to be stuck in Normal land forever.
Heres my armoury link maybe someone can see something in there where I'am falling down but to me it seems good considering the gear I have:
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/s ... A3s/simple
I use spirit for hit so if I ever decide to heal again the spirit will help.
My usual rotation is:
1) Vampiric Touch
2) Devouring Plague
3) Shadow Word: Pain
4) Mind Flay
5) Mind Flay
6) Mind Blast -- (Mind Flay again if I don't have an orb)
When Arch. is ready I hit Mindflay straight away and build the orbs up to use Mind Blast.
I also use SWD at 30% or under and Shadowfiend gets used at the start of larger fights or bosses so if need be his ready for the end as well.
For smaller health targets at 30% already I try and hit SWD up then Mind Flay them down.
I wont use Mind blast because the cast time is to long and the target is usually dead by the time its cast so no dps there for me.
This happens a lot in Grim Batol or when the tank changes targets in general.
I'am over the hit cap so no problem there.
I know my wand is green, the one in Grim Batol just wont drop, but everything else seems ok so I dont know where I'am falling down.
In the end it may just be player ability I'am not sure.
