Idol of Y’Shaarj will receive a new tooltip as we get closer to Dragonflight. In the meantime though, here’s a breakdown of what it currently does:

If your target is…

Above 80% health? → Pride

  • You and your Shadowfiend deal increased damage while Shadowfiend is active.

Enraged? → Anger

  • Purges the enraged effect and increases your Haste while Shadowfiend is active.

Stunned? → Despair

  • You generate Insanity while Shadowfiend is active.

Feared? → Fear

  • You and your Shadowfiend deal increased damage and do not break fear effects while Shadowfiend is active.

No conditions met? → Violence

  • Duration of Shadowfiend is increased.

The priority order is:
Anger/Despair/Fear → Pride → Violence

As with everything in the talent tree, these effects are subject to change. I hope this clears up some confusion. We’ll continue monitoring the community’s feedback and we look forward to sharing more Dragonflight details in the future!
