I've been playing a shadow priest since vanilla WoW...and I can honestly say this is the first time I've been more than confused. I have already looked at Drye's amazing post that breaks down the bits and pieces of the new shadow priest abilities, gearing choices, stat priorities, etc.
However...I'm still at a loss as to what's more feasible in terms of Auspicious Spirits vs. Clarity of Power. Is one better than the other? Or do they sim close so it's negligible? (For raiding purpose, I can't imagine it would be viable having to switch talents and be subpar because of poor stat itemization in the new spec with former talent's gearset.)
In a similar vein, what do you guys consider best for CMs? So many of the pulls are big AoE packs and I literally cannot find a group for golds because our AoE seems to be garbage atm. I've tried multidotting with AS but it's incomparable to any other class (I think the only AoE worse than our atm is ele shamans) and Mind Sear is just as bad. Any suggestions or recommendations?
