Enh Weapon Slot? Basic question.

2 posts in this topic

I recently rolled an Enh Shaman and have been getting conflicting advice on whether to use the stronger weapon (in terms of damage, not DPS) as my main hand or my off hand. The melee damage will be higher if I make it my main hand, but some are telling me that making it my off-hand will improve my DPS due to Lava Lash. I don't really know what to think, since I'm fairly new, especially with this being my first melee character.


I appreciate the help. Not sure if you guys need it, but here's my armory:

From what I have read it looks like the best weapon should go into your off hand because you will use it more due to the extra procs of lava lash

      i was wondering about a few trinkets as i'm trying to max my dmg since my guild will be trying myth soon (can't complain atm, dmg is quite good)
      Last night i got
      from Heroic Cenarius. I switched my 825 Devilsaur Shockbaton for it. Other trinket atm is 855 Faulty Countermeasure.
      What i'm wondering is, another Enha is running
      and the proc'd stats difference is quite significant, as CoW procs at 865 with 2,760 Crit/Mastery/Haste whereas Memento on 855 with sth around 4,5k same stats. Duration is different, 10s uptime CoW, 6s Memento. Still i feel like a Memento on 865 could outperform CoW, since it also hast alot Mainstat. Simcraft won't give me contructive feedback, no matter how ofter i run in (more than 10k actions). has anyone some info on these two trinkets?
      Is CoW good, or do i need to farm Maw of Souls again like a mad man (with this weeks teeming/necrotic not that easy)?
      Bonus Question: Couldn't dig up any information about FCM being nerfed for Enha, can someone enlighten me why it's not good anymore?
      Thx in advance!

      I am in need of help. My Doomhammer is currently on 887 itemlevel. From this weeks world boss I got 860 ilvl "Calamir's Jaw" which gives "Each target hit by crash lightning increases damage dealt by my next stormstrike by 2%. (which is semi ok).
      BUT my current one is a 850 ilvl "Torch of shaladrassil" with 10% increased attack speed when stormstrike proccs.
      So the question is, do I switch to the 860 ilvl one? It boosts doomhammer from 887 to 890. BUT i loose 10% attack speed. goes from 40% to 30%. Is it worth it? I feel stormstrike proccs alot and the attackspeed is very useful.

      I believe I should introduce myself as it's my first post on this board, so to make it short, I've been an on and off WoW player since the end of WotLK and my main has always been a shaman (with small exception of MoP where i Mained priest, for a month...)
      Now to get to the point. Currently I have 4 trinkets with me, one is a 865 Bloodthirsty Instinct, one a 845 Chrono Shard, 840 Chaos Talisman and 855 Eye of Skovald.
      Up till 10 minutes ago I was rocking a combination of Bloodthirsty Instinct with Chaos Talisman, but now I'm curious. Which trinket combo should yield me the biggest DPS buff?
      Here's my armory:
      This topic can be removed, the dillema solved itself with a better trinket dropping

      i'm looking for a nice Enhancement Pawn String or just the Stat Priority for Pawn.
      This is the stat weight from Noxxic,  Agility [9.04] > Haste [7.54] > Mastery [6.04] > Crit [4.54] > Versatility [3.04], but i dont like this so much, maybe you know a better one.

      So my guild finally squeaked out our heroic Il'gynoth kill this week, but my dps was far lower than what i typically get and what I've seen other enh. Shaman getting on it. I was wondering if any of the more experienced enhancement shaman could take a look at my logs for the kill and see what mistakes I'm making. Any help is much appreciated :)
