Swim Speed Potions (used especially at lvl 37 for Faldir's Cove in Arathi Highlands and lvl 57 in WPL). Try to get multiple stacks of these. I also recommend keeping a stack of these always in your bags. You will frequently pass rivers and lakes and can use these potions to pass them faster through out the guide. Please note that these potions do not stack with Druid's Aquatic Form and Glyph of Aquatic Form.
Mana per 5 seconds, AKA Mp5, adds direct mana regeneration that continues even while casting spells. Normally, this stat is very sought after, but while leveling, a priest should be relying on Spirit and Spirit Tap to regenerate mana, and should not be casting enough spells to fully reap the benefit of uninterrupted mana regeneration. This stat is also generally obtained at the cost of other stats, as not much leveling gear has Mp5 on it without also sacrificing other stats.
Members Area: My members area will launch one week before Classic WoW launches. At this time I am unsure of how much content will be in it. I suspect it will be about the same price of a Twitch sub (of only about $5 a month or so). The members area will support the ongoing efforts to improving my leveling guides over time. There is a lot more content planned for the future, including remastered TBC leveling guides (even if Blizzard does not launch Classic TBC). And remastered WOTLK leveling guides. I plan to continue to make leveling guides for WoW full time for many years to come!
With a decent wand, most mobs equal to the priest’s level or lower will die to Shadow Word: Pain and wand damage. However, the DPS of Shadow Word: Pain and a wand combined is usually not enough to beat mana regeneration filling your mana bar, and then the issue of efficiency becomes a lack of DPS. Practice balancing mana-efficiency with DPS by casting Power Word: Shield, Shadow Word: Pain, two Mind Flays, then wand for the rest of the mob’s health. As soon as the mob dies, use Power Word: Shield, and repeat the process on another mob. If doing so consistently does not result in dropping below half mana, continue. Otherwise, cast one fewer Mind Flay each time until the mana bar is hovering around 90% most of the fight.
Escort quests can take awhile to do. I have thoroughly tested all the escort quests in the game for time/xp. Most are worth doing, but as long as you are able to actually do them without failing. Most require you to pay special attention to the escortee as most are fragile and will die easily, so do your best to keep mobs off of the escortee during escort quests. The longest one in the game is the Tanaris chicken escort. The chicken escorts are only worth doing if you were able to do all 3 of them, as if you do, you will be able to turn in an additional easy quick XP turn in quest at BB, which makes them worth it.
Fear Ward: One-use ability that grants a friendly target immunity to the next fear effect used against them. Can be dispelled. Lasts 10 minutes. 30 second cooldown. Incredible in PvP. Great for a raids, but not very useful while leveling or in 5-man dungeons. However, because of the short cooldown, there’s no reason not to keep this buff up in case anything (or anyone) has a fear.
To fully realize the potential of your shadow priest, you’ll need to understand several things about the class. This guide will cover several things like race options, talent choices, and the rotation you should follow to output the most damage. We’ll also talk about all aspects of optimization, including stat priorities, enchanting, beneficial professions, and the consumables that make your character complete.
Possibly the most complicated Addon I have ever used it is also one of the most powerful. You can build custom Visual and Audio warnings for virtually any situation in the Game. I have used it for Buff Stacks Low HP and Ability Cooldowns many times over the years on various Characters. Blizzard added similar Visual Warnings in Cataclysm.Git Repository: https://github.com/Geigerkind/ModifiedPowerAuras
