Need help with Elemental

3 posts in this topic

Hi everyone, I've been playing elemental since SoO and have been doing fine up until now. My DPS has been kind of low compared to what I think it should be.

---Here is a link to my armory (


---Here is a link to my logs (


---My rotation usually goes something like this: During countdown i use Unleash Flame then drop Searing Totem and prepot then i Flame Shock and pop my trinket EM Ascendance and Fire Elemental. Then I spam Lava Burst and when Ascendance is done i use Earth Shock then LB/EB and renew Flame Shock. After that I continue to spam LB/EB and using Lava Burst whenever i can. 


One other quick question. For gearing is is Ilvl>stats or stats>ilvl. Atm i am going Ilvl>stats but not sure if it is the best choice. Thank you for reading and taking the time to look at this and any advice would be great. ^.^

Okay, Serris. I note no real problems with gearing, other than having an abnormally high mastery which will most likely be remedied with time. As far as the question on gearing, it depends. If we're talking about the difference between a normal and a heroic item, the heroic item wins... every time. There is just too much intellect on the heroic item to be ignored. However, we take that heroic item and put it up to a warforged piece... it will boil down to secondaries at that point. 


For your opener, why cast an instance of searing totem before the pull just to have to put the fire elemental down a few seconds after? I would have the fire elemental out a second before the pull begins. 


My opener: Prepot and Fire Elemental Totem 2-3 seconds before pull, Unleashed Flame 1 second before pull, Elemental Mastery with on-use trinkets, Flame Shock, Lava Burst, Heroism, Ascendance. If you have elemental blast, you can fit that in after the flame shock to buff the next few Lava Bursts during Ascendance. After that, it is just managing your rotation and using your movement CDs correctly. Missing even one Lava Burst or mismanaging movement CDs can cost a TON of DPS. 


One fight I can suggest a tip on is probably Butcher. Try using Unleashed Fury instead of Elemental Blast. You'd be surprised how much faster the rotation feels for that fight. You have Spiritwalker's Grace glyphed for a shorter CD which lines up with Bounding Cleave up until he undergoes his soft enrage. You won't need Unleashed Fury for short movement sequences as you aren't moving an incredible amount to begin with (unless you are in charge of moving in and out of a group). 


Hopefully, this helps and leaves more answers than questions.

Hiya, thx a ton for the reply I feel liek this really helped me (especially the gearing question because i could not find that anywhere) I get what ur saying with the mastery and i will try harder to get rid of that in favor of another stat. The opener you suggested makes sense and i will definitely try it. Again thank you a ton for reading :)

      ABOUT US
      We are a very social guild LFM for progression/semi-casual raiding and leveling. 
      When we say "semi-casual," we mean that we raid two days for three hours, can laugh about a wipe but are still serious about progression. We plan to do Normal raids (not for long) before going on to Heroic and Mythic.
      New players and all levels welcomed. We are VERY new player and new role friendly and have a few new players in the raid group already. We will work with you and get you trained up. So don't worry! 
      We do have some PvPers and an experienced RBG leader so PvP isn't out of the question.
      We're almost always on Discord and we joke around a lot. Some jokes aren't appropriate so keep that in mind. (Recommended 18+)
      Currently we are using the EPGP system ( The addon EPGP (DKP Reloaded), EPGP Lootmaster, DBM, and GTFO are required to be downloaded and kept up-to-date on raid nights.
      Fridays & Sundays 8pm - 11pm PST. (10pm - 1am Server Time.) NOTE: Flasks, foods, potions, and enchants will be provided for raiders on a first-come first-serve basis. People who contribute to the guild bank will also have preference. Guild repairs provided on raid nights. Trials will be provided with the aforementioned items if we can spare them after the main raiders. CURRENT PROGRESSION
      Emerald Nightmare, [7/7N] [3/7H] OTHER EVENTS

      Hi everyone. Im currently playing enhancement shaman and I love the playstyle but usually when im in a dungeon I cant do as much damage as the others. For example my friend is playing a frost mage and he is doing 5 times my damage. He has heirlooms tho. There are some guys doing 15/20 k dps and im doing 1.5 at max. Im level 70 and I think im following my stats right. Im also trying to do my rotation right and I dont think thats the problem. There is my armory link: . Should I worry about my damage or its normal for this level and gear? :)

      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.
