hmmm, I want to like it, but I rarely use it tbh.

Somehow it just dosen't work when killing mobs.

You can't use it in the end, because then you don't get the most out of spirit tap and if you use it in the beginning you take the HP damage.

Not denying that doing 4K dam in 1.5 s is fun it's just not effective.

It might be viable for DPS for end-game raiding but that all depends on boss abilities ofc and if it's safe to use.

Give me a Patchwerk with SW:D and you could really use it all the time.

Well ...

Forced myself to use it today. Made up a new cycle for grinding mobs with SW:D in it.

So far it seems ok but just requires a lot of room, since you to need fire off 3 instants after aggro before flaying compared to my old cycle with one instant.

I use it for soloing elites and tagging quest mobiles in a crowd of other farmers.

I love my Shadow Word: Death.

It's a frikking cool spell, and very creative too. The self damage makes you have to think about how and when to use.

I found out yesterday it's an awesome tool when kiting mobs. With VE + SW:Pain + SW:Death (and some fear) I kited a lvl 67 elite mob @ lvl 63. Took me 55 seconds get his 13k health down and I ended up at 100% health.

I'd say we start praising the best spell us priests have, instead.

Mind Control!

Seriously, we now have edges to run people from everywhere! (if it works, that is)

These days, if I'm casting a spell in an instance, 90% times it's Mind Control.

Mind control actually useful now? Without it ending early often and giving massive agro?

Yes, it certainly seems to have improved since the UBRS/DM days. Maybe it's the 4/5 Shadow Focus, or the +hit bonuses on my gear, but MC practically never breaks early on me, unless I accidentally run the mob out of range or get hit by a stray AoE, and with the current taunt mechanics, aggro isn't that much of a problem, either.

A note of warning, however: Don't use it in Mana Tombs. The Sorcerers will go out of their way to disrupt your MC with a Counterspell and make your life a living hell for the next 15 seconds.

Whilst soloing as a Heavy Holy priest, I find SW:D very handy to finish off a mob. Beats waiting for a slow wanding kill, or for long and drawn out and oft-interrupted Holy Fire. Only trick is making sure the SW:D will definitely kill the mob, and not you!

I find that SW: Death needs to be renamed SW: 2%, tbh :(

Get Mobinfo ;)

I have it and the damn mobs still end up on 1%.

Favourite SW:death moment on the curator nuking all out when I get a 4k SW:death crit and nearly kill myself...the healers told me off :)
