Misery is a Tier 8 Priest talent in the Shadow tree. It causes the Priest's Mind Blast, Mind Flay and Mind Sear spells to give the target a debuff that increases spell damage taken by 5/10/15% of the Priests total spellpower. Your Shadow Word: Pain, Mind Flay and Vampiric Touch also increase the chance for harmful spells to hit by 1/2/3%, lasting 24 seconds. Misery benefits all other casters in the party or raid as it increases the chance for spells to hit.
