And so it was, that one night (well morning) my alt-raid 10 manned group turned to my priest and asked: "What is you secondary specc?"
And I told them: "It is the specc of Holy"
Then they asked me: "But, pray tell, what is your primary specc?"
And I answered them: "It is the specc of Disc"
And then there was silence. And I saw that silence was not good.
And then it was, that the Paladin turned towards the group and said: "But i am only specced for the holy persuasion", and the tree said: "I have a kitty, but my gear is crappeth".
And the raid leader looked down upon his group, and saw that this was bad. Twis was the dps that was needed on the mighty foe named Rotface, and there where no other alts to choose from, since they where all fast asleep, and all the mains where locked on the groups first clear-eth.
But lo! In the horizon, it was the lunchbreak and and there was time for respeccing.
And so it was, on this Sunday morning, of rest, that the Priest took it upon himself to venture to the Forge of Iron, and unlearn his holy specc and take up the arts of shadow.
So it was written, so it was true.
Yep, its all true, I am now shadow. And I suck.
Well hopefully I won't suck as much next weekend, now that I have read a little up on it. And had some time to test and try. On that sunday morning, all i had time for was respecc, gem and get my glyphs in order. I have not played shadow for... well forever.
I have never been interested in looking at that side of the road.... Okay there was that one time in TBC, But everyone experiments a little when and expansion comes out and..... DONT JUDGE ME!!
Erhm. So yea I knew nothing about shadow. So i armoried our two coolest shadowpriests and copied their specc and glyphs. Luckily they where both on alts in the same raid as me, and one of them, wagga, I had known for a long time (and we are from the same country). so the 20 minutes lunchbreak was for me, spend on some frantic Danish /w about "is this basically it?" "yea pretty much" and me running around reglyphing.
And boy did I suck. 2.3 k dps. on my best pull.
Oh my. (and yes, I was hit-capped, I was just that bad.)
Now a lot of the problems stemmed from the fact that this was a relative new boss, and a totally new function for me, and a hellyva lot of my problems was due to me not knowing diddly about shadow. For the longest time i thought it was my crits that made my SW:p refresh. (cut me some slack here, I had 20 minutes to respec and 30 sec to read anything).
Things are about to change
Well I am ignorant no more! I've found out the secret of playing shadow priests. The secret is this: Close your eyes and think of England.. . ehh no, think of guitar hero!
This is a shadowpriest, this was not a aprils fool
Think I'm kidding?
