Shadow Priests don’t have a specific rotation that we follow. Instead, we have a priority list to maintain. Below you will find the list and explanations for some spells.

Single-Target/Boss Rotation

  1. Make sure to keep up Vampiric Embrace on the target to assist with passive healing
  2. Maintain Vampiric Touch on the target
  3. Maintain Shadow Word: Pain on the target
  4. We’ll want to use Mind Blast every time it comes off cooldown
  5. Shadow Word: Death is a strong instant-cast spell but be careful not to kill yourself while using this
  6. Our main filler spell is Mind Flay

You should use Inner Focus with Shadow Word: Pain since this will allow it to not cost any mana.

AoE Rotation

While Shadow Priests aren’t gifted with direct AoE damage, we can tab-target through the mobs, applying Shadow Word: Pain and carry on with our single-target rotation afterward.

Inner Focus should be used on Mind Blast not Shadow Word Pain….
