Well, I’m giving Shadow spec a try. I keep hearing the other priest in my guild complain about not having any gear for it, and since I do have the gear I felt terribly guilty for letting it go to waste.
So far all I’ve done is set up the spec and gear. I haven’t actually tried to DPS yet. I hope I can break 2k in a random heroic. That’s my starter goal. I think it’s reasonable.
The bigger question is whether or not I’ll like it. I’m terrified that I’m going to hate the DPS role. I love healing so much, I’m afraid everything else is going to feel pale by comparison.
