Hi Nikola,

Thanks for the application, a few comments...

First of all the experience as a raider seems good however as this raiding experience hasn't been on your priest this worries me a little let me try to explain.

As a shadow priest you will find your pretty much changing talents every boss encounter and sometimes your glyphs also (but less so) now you mentioned that you tired a few specs and found that your current one worked best for you, I took from this that you would you then use this spec all round which just won't work on a lot of encounters. (this is where the experience would come in).

E.g. Twist of Faith when there are a lot of adds in the encounter where you can keep a high up time on this buff its some OP stuff :)

Halo - Yes best single target dps spell and aoe for that matter but its only any use when used at the optimal range which is not always possible so Cascade can also be a very good choice.

Your current Major Glyphs are very poor for raiding also:

Glyph of Mind Spike is pretty much mandatory.

The other two will depend on the encounter:

Glyph of Mind Flay very useful you will get pretty much 100% up time on the movement speed buff

Glyph of Vambric Embrace also very nice for high damage fights to help the healers out the healing this thing does is insane :) after a shadow priest brings a lot of utility to a raid and the healing cool downs is one great thing about having a shadow priest in your raid group.

Rotation seems fine shadow is very much priority based than anything else but be sure to be clipping your non Insanity Mind flays. this is a nice DPS increase

Stat priority is again fine for your current gear level but changes when you get to a higher ilvl and also when you get the legendary meta gem.

Addons - always more personal preference but I would highly recommend:

Shadow Priest DOT Timer keeps track of dots orbs MB/SF Insanity on your current target with indications on the best time to refresh your dots for maximum dps.

Gnosis - Very useful to help with mind flay clipping

HaloPro - Shows a bar which changes color (green) when your at optimal range of your current target to get the most dps out of your halo

Sorry about the wall of text just wanted try give you a few pointers.

The other officers and the boss I expect will respond tommorrow with some comments and a decision on your application.

Declined due to lack of gear.

We are in a situation with progress where we can't effort to boost people.
Feel free to reapply when your gear is fixed.

Best of luck.
