This item seems to be the sister of
Tormented Demonsoul Robes
In comparison, this item gains 33 spirit and 29 spell hit rating, and loses 50 spell critical strike rating, 5 stamina, 3 intellect, and 1 spell damage over
Tormented Demonsoul Robes
looks like amazing SP gear.
For a shadow priests still in Frozen Shadoweave Robes, you gain
+29 spell hit
and lose 11 spell dmg, a socket and the set bonus, but well worth it with the changes to spirit.
For a shadow priest as a PVE perspective are these better than the demonsoul robes?
For a PvE Shadow Priest, there is simply no compelling reason to go with the Demonsoul robes over these (with one exception). Why? The first relates to our talents - Shadow Focus and Shadow Power, specifically. This robe has 29 hit rating, which is about 2.3% - that means by taking this robe, you can remove one point in Shadow Focus and stick it in Shadow Power. That one point in Shadow Power will give you 3% crit, while the Demonsoul robes - which have 50 crit rating - will give you about 2.2% crit. So by going with this robe instead of Demonsoul, you can still have hit, but you get more crit (by getting to shift a talent point). And you also gain 33 spirit, which is a lot. Any raiding shadow priest will most likely have 2-3 points in Meditation, making spirit on gear a fairly worthwhile investment.
Of course, an exception would be if you already have 16% hit from gear alone, and already have no talent points in Shadow Focus. Then the question becomes a bit more murky, as now the issue is between 33 spirit or 50 crit rating, since the hit on this robe becomes meaningless. In that case, it depends on whether or not you have mana issues - if you find you're never going OOM already, then go for the crit. If you do have mana issues, go for spirit.
So while there is a circumstance where you might take Demonsoul over these, the vast majority of the time this is the superior robe for a shadow priest in PvE. It all comes down to the fact that it makes more sense to gear for hit, and then move talent points from Shadow Focus to Shadow Power - that way you're at least getting a little more bang for your buck with a stat that is generally very weak for a shadow priest (crit).
Personally, I would say both these robes and the boots are superior items to Frozen Shadoweave. Less raw +dmg, but the large +hit and huge boost in stats I think more than compensates. With the advent of 2.4 there's really no compelling reason to choose FSW any more, as the new badge robe and boots are better (or at least as good), and the shoulders that drop in Magister's Terrace are equivalent to the FSW shoulders as well. Farming all those badges might seem like a chore, but then again leveling tailoring and farming all the mats for the FSW set is an even bigger chore in my opinion, and costs a hell of a lot more money to boot.
Now if only Blizzard would've put an epic helm in the new badge gear or in Magister's Terrace...
I'll just restate the age-old medium.
A bit off-topic guys, which item is those shoulder pads shown on the bloodelf mage picture to the right? They seem to fit so well with the robe but I have no clue what they are. Could anyone enlighten me about that and I would be eternally great full.
so should a "0/21/40 warlock" choose this one over Tormented Demonsoul Robes if not hitcapped yet ?
