Come to the Dark Side! (They Have Cookies!)

You've given up all that is good and right as a priest and instead have chosen to focus on the power of death. Good for you! We all need to be bad every once in a while. Our World of Warcraft community site's guide to playing a shadow priest guide will show you the power of the dark side.

While playing a healer can be immensely rewarding, it can also be incredibly demanding and stressful. Due to this, many priests have switched allegiances from light to dark, and now focus on the power of death. Many never even need to switch, as shadow is the strongest solo build and therefore the most common while leveling. Once you become a shadow priest many players find it hard to go back. DPS is in general easier and less stressful than healing, and much more addictive. It can become very competitive when trying to top the DPS meters, which is very different than healing.
