How are spells an OS item when they're in your talent tree? =x
A fair question. It was because when I added the talent at level 69 (iirc) I was not having mana problems and concentrated on the OS part of the spell.
Do you use power auras by any chance? I could export my auras for you if you like. I've got a set that tracks when your target is under 25% health and the CD on SWD is up. I've also got ones that track the three DoTs, Shadowfiend CD, AA CD and only lights up when you have 5 stacks of Evangelism.
Not as yet. Sounds like an excellent idea.
As far as which rotation to go with, use the 15 second rule. If a mob is going to be alive for 15 seconds or longer, DoT away. However, I would suggest using Vampiric Touch instead of Devouring Plague. DP uses more mana, and VT is the DoT that gives replenishment, so that's probably a big part of why you're having mana issues. You aren't giving yourself replenishment. Now, if a mob isn't going to live for 15 seconds, use MSx3 and then MB.
Thank you. That was clear & concise
You're 85 and you haven't done any 5 mans at all? O.o Why not? At least run some of the normals, it'll help with gearing up so you can get into heroics faster.
I was slightly misleading here. Its Cata 5 mans I have not run. The mana problems showed up in Cata when I started questing. I ran a lot of LK 5 mans leveling up with no mana issues. Before LK material I leveled this character with Archaelogy and Herbing. (this was my 9th 85, 8 classes, and I was a bit blase). I guess I was hoping the mana problems would get better when I hit 85 and they didn't.
I do plan to run a bunch of normals fwiw. It's just that I don't want to be a drag because of the mana. Thanks for the feedback.
