Shadow Priests are priests that use their ties to the void in order to cause pain and suffering to their enemies. Most of their spells are either related to hits directly into their foes minds, weakening them with every blow or tapping into the power of the void to strike their foes with ancient powers. Like other Priest specs, they have the option to heal their allies’ wounds, but at a much more expensive cost. Shadow Priests can also convert the pain of their enemies into salvation to their allies, using vampiric rituals in order to do so.
