No Monkey Business

(BlodMonkey, I named him after Blodgruv who gave me the monkey. My new personal funky monkey!)

This weekend has been no monkey-ing around. I've done a shit ton of research for my shadow priest. Plus, I've been trying to practice as much as I can with 2v2s and 3v3s. Taint says the best way to get better with your 5v5s is to do more dueling and 2v2 and 3v3s.

I posted most of what I have learned on my guild forums.

I thought it would be better if I started compiling all my findings into one place so I could reference myself. It's definitely been a battle of patience and trial and error. Frustrating battles after frustrating battles. I absolutely warn people not to seek shadow priest pvp out if they don't have the stomach for dying repeatedly.

Anyhow, all my teams are doing a lot better. We played 63 games this week with our 5v5. I'm hoping to do more on my 3v3 and 2v2 this coming week. My small, much needed break cut into a lot of my practice time.

Ideally, I want to get in about 40-50 games per team per week.

One of the hugest lessons I learned is about self-preservation. Shadowform is a luxury that can be afforded to lose so you can win. I used to resist the temptation to pop out of shadow to flash heal and renew myself and desperate prayer...but now I'm learning to self-preserve a lot more naturally.

Two things I've noticed that are great about the Shadowpriest is the ability to heal and dps..and of course, to finish off targets... Power Word Death ftw. If you can work thos two things in while staying alive and getting the timing right, you'll do all right.. at least this is my hope. :) all you clothies out there. Keep trekkin'!! Perhaps the Blizzgods will reward us someday for all of our suffering. heheh.
