Pve Shadow Priest Dps Guide (wotlk 3.3.5a)

Category: Priest Guides

Welcome to the Shadow Priest DPS guide for World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King 3.3.5a. In this guide, you will learn about playing a Shadow Priest in a raid. The guide includes Talents, Glyphs, Gems, Enchantments, Add-ons, Gameplay & Skill rotation tips.

Here I’ll describe two specs. The first one will be a casual spec, usable with every kind of gear. The second one will be for people with 4/5 T10 Set Bonus.

The advantage of the second build is that we don’t take Improved Mind Blast, which saves us 5 talent points. We take Improved Vampiric Embrace, which will give our raid extra survivability and now we have 16% less treat generation.

Gems are situational and depend on the build and equipment. They are used to reach the required stat caps.


Shadow Priests have an opener combo and a priority list afterward. Let’s take a look.

First Spec Openers

This is a standard opener for players using the first spec. (No 4/5 T10 Set Bonus)

Priority List

After using your opener you have to keep these spells on the target all the time:

Second Spec Openers

If you have the 4/5 T10 Set Bonus then your opener will look like this:

Priority List

Vampiric Touch, *Mind Blast, Devouring Plague, Shadow Word: Pain, Mind Flay.

*Mind Blast is used much less with this spec.

*Mind Blast procs a regeneration buff.If you have other 3 classes, that give a similar buff, then you don’t have to use it.
