I'm assuming you mean Aurora? I was comparing a T8 head+gloves setup to 4pc T9 + Aurora a while ago and Aurora+4pc came up a bit less than 1% better in terms of raw dps. I don't have the simcraft dump on hand right now though, but I'd imagine you're looking at an increase of about the same magnitude (or smaller) going from T8 head+shoulder.


Yeah, i ment Aurora. So if its that small of an upgrade, ill just stick with my setup and wait for 9.5.

Read the OP. Waiting for 9.5 is one of the dumbest things you can do, especially as a shadowpriest, since our damage frankly sucks until 3.3.

speaking of 3.3,

has anyone looked into the new stat weights for 3.3, or are we stuck waiting until more information is released on how fast the dots will scale with haste. because having SW:P, VT and DP all benefit from haste is going to raise haste itemization like crazy.

I have a simple question, that I just don't understand:

Why are there so many people opting for 2 pcs T8 and 2 pcs T9?

In terms of PP, I don't see how it could be good:

Head:
Aurora: 376.94PP
Conqueror: 358.93 (with set bonus)

Pants:
Leggings: 312 PP (pre-hard mode) or 334PP
Conqueror: 281 (with set bonus)

Chest:
Merlin: 332.30PP (pre-hard mode) or Velen's: 336.08
Conqueror: 269.93 (with set bonus)

That means, if we combo the head and the pants:
BiS: 688.94 or 710.96
Conqueror: 639.93
There is a difference of 29.01 or 71.03

The head with the chest:
BiS: 709.24 or 713.02
Conqueror: 628.86
There is a difference of 80.38 or 84.16

Or the pants with the chest:
BiS: 644.3 or 670.08
Conqueror: 550.93
There is a difference of 60.38 or 119.15

What did I miss?

Something i am interested is the new Vamperic Embrace buff. Being a Disc priest as my main, i am now concentrating on gearing my shadow spec as my guild progression is deadfully slow and got some lucky drops in VoA for my OS. How is the new buff going to work? Will it be applied in the same way as fortitude or spirit is as a raid buff?

If so this will just make our rotations easier as it will be 1 less spell to try and fit in during combat

Its literally a 30 minute selfbuff like inner fire, cast and forget.

With the little difference that innerfire might get hitted of you (very unlikely) while VE stays and can't even be dispelled.
