I know that secondary stats are not the focal point for any class or spec. I also know that item level is great to have at high levels. However, I have played a priest since Cataclysm and the need for haste is at all time high and it has little pay off.
Honestly, I am not sure if it is worth the trouble. For being ilvl 345, her haste is at 13%. It’s is underwhelming, and feels very slow.
Slow to the point of wanting me to rip my hair out. It is frustrating and at one point or another I feel like I should move on.
If you have no idea for the stat priority for a shadow priest is as follows: Intellect > Critical Strike > Haste > Mastery >= Versatility. Haste for consumables is also suggested. (Consumables are gem’s, enchants, and food that you would take with you into raids, five man dungeons at any level, and the other various things you would like to complete.) I know that for Battle For Azeroth the items will have a smaller amount of attributes overall on them, plus there are less secondary stats available in comparison to Legion. That is just how a stat squish works.
I know it seems like I am making a big deal out of nothing, and lets face it, you should bring the player and not the class or item level; however, this just seems to be off to me. I am going to try and keep a good outlook for this but with how things are going that I should choose another class to play as a main for the expansion.
