Shadow priest standard (PvP)

Great CC and support, nice dots and some finishing power. Fairly standard 3v3 build



Azerite : Death throes > Spiteful Apparitions



Stats : Haste > crit > Int=vers=mast



Use Void origins, Life swap and greater fade as PVP talents. Get psyfiend instead of swap in 2v2 (but don't 2v2 as spriest, that sucks)
15
Shadowy Insight
Shadow Word: Pain periodic damage has a chance to reset the remaining cooldown on Mind Blast and cause your next Mind Blast to be instant.
Insta cast are important in pvp, especially because you only have one school.
30
Intangibility
Dispersion heals for 50% of your maximum health over its duration and has 30 seconds reduced cooldown.
Better dispersion ... pvp is all about trading CD's and having your cd more often is important.

Sanlayn is an option vs UHDK if you use embrace during army for topping your team
45
Misery
Vampiric Touch also applies Shadow Word: Pain to the target.
Do your dot job in one less gcd per target. Very important against dispel heavy teams
60
Psychic Horror
Terrifies the target in place, stunning them for 4 seconds.
Horror is best because you have an OP cc chain every 45s (1 min if you want to mix in fear)

Silence can be good if playing with a rogue (because you already have many stuns)
75
Shadow Word: Death
A word of dark binding that inflicts 7,693 Shadow damage to the target. Only usable on enemies that have less than 20% health. Generates 15 Insanity, or 30 Insanity if the target dies.
Shadow word death is best if you want to kill with a cc chain, but apparitions can be good if your team want to kill with raw sustained dps (think warlock/boomy)
90
Mindbender
Summons a Mindbender to attack the target for 15 seconds. Generates 6 Insanity each time the Mindbender attacks.
Bender is better generation and damage that needs 0 cast from you. LI is better sustained damage
100
Legacy of the Void
Void Eruption's cast time is reduced by 40% and may be cast anytime your Insanity level is 60 or higher. Voidform increases spell damage by an additional 5%.
Legacy of the void, you want to spend time in VF, because in VF you have Void bolt which is INSTANT ... gotta cut this 90 insanity ramping curve which is a PAIN.
