Shadow Tree

The Shadow tree contains most of the damage-increasing talents available to the priest. It is the most well constructed tree, with very few useless talents. It is definitely the tree you should take if you intend to solo a lot, or if PvP is the final aim for your priest. With the right talents, you can achieve 35% bonus damage to all your Shadow spells, as well as having access to Silence and Vampiric Embrace, which heals for each point of damage you do. Most players take Shadow as their main tree while leveling, and then re-spec for healing in end game instances.
