You need good mates

I read a lot of shadow priest forums always looking for ways to improve my game. I constantly stalk zizek on the armory but unfortunately I have no access to his play style. He's also undead and an engineer so he has more tricks up his sleeve than myself.

Today as I made my way through some shadow priest googles I came across some stupid xfire debate about viable arena classes. Man. I can't believe they host some of that stuff. As someone who is always looking for good information to learn from, it annoys me when I run across a bunch of non-palyers mouthing off general remarks based off of little facts.

First and foremost, you can't simply judge a class by its core abilities for PvP. This isn't 1v1. It's 2v2, 3v3, or 5v5. Class compliments count more in arenas than anything.
Yes, it's true, Shadow Priests have quite an uphill battle when you move from 2v2 to 5v5. But as my super star god Zizek proves, it's about running with a group that not only compliments your DPS and abilities BUT also can help your survivability.

Some of the most necessary things to my survivability I take with me in our Arena battles don't come from my class talents. Hamstring, Wingclip, Frost trap, BOP, Blessing of Freedom, Prayer of Mending all come from my fellow arena mates. As we have come up from practice, they are learning how to keep me alive...and I in turn, suck up all their healing mana. hahahahha.. Okay. that's laughable but sometimes true.

But my strengths and what I feel I bring to the team come from my ability to weaken the opposing team through dispels, DOTs and to finish off kills fast. I'd kill to be able to watch the top shadow priests in action. If only they would offer spectator mode...
