What to Wear: The Shadow Priest's Guide to The Emerald Nightmare

image from www.furlinedteacup.com

It's been a very long while since I've put together a gear guide, but this seemed like a good time since my gnomies are about to start raiding.

Know Your Priorities

First things first, get to know your stat priority:

  • Haste
  • Critical Strike
  • Mastery
  • Intellect
  • Versatility

Note: If you take the Legacy of the Void or Mind Spike talents, you'll swap #1 and #2 with each other, per Icy Veins

Note that Noxxic has a different shadow priest stat priority (Intellect > Haste > Crit > Versatility > Mastery). I suggest you see what works best with your play style and gearing.

Shadow Priest Gear Priorities for The Emerald Nightmare

I've linked to the Wowhead page for the LFR version of each item; from there you can select your mode of choice to review the different stats. If you're not sure which piece of gear to use, as you juggle ilevels and stats, consider using an addon such as Pawn to help you more easily determine which piece of gear is your best choice.
