6.2 Elemental Shaman Discussion thread.

8 posts in this topic

Hello all,

 

   So Ele shamans have been pretty good this expansion, especially when it comes to AoE.  In the upcoming patch they will be receiving some changes.  I just wanted to get some opinions about how Ele Shamans will be affected. 

 

   My biggest concern is how much they are reducing Ele Shaman's multistrike.  Do you think that this nerf will affect the stats priority for the Elemental spec. and do you think shamans will drop off a little as one of the higher dps characters?

 

What are your thought about this and other Ele Shaman changes coming in 6.2?

Well I was hoping to get some feed back from somebody but it doesn't look like we're gonna get it volanix.

 

I know that Haste is good for single target while Crit is good for AoE, but that is as of right now. 

I am more interested in whats going to happen in 6.2, especially with the nerf to Elemental Overload, but it doesn't seem like we'll be getting any answers anytime soon.  I know nobody can predict the future but I was hoping for any kind of feedback from any of the "experts" or anyone who has been able to put in more time to research/test out how the changes will affect playstyle and/or the class build.

Not sure what the question is? multi is still out number 1 stat by miles, haste and crit are next and so close it doesnt matter

Reread the patch notes although we were nerved by 15% on elemental overload we get a 5% increase on all multistrike stats. I currently have about the same if not 2% more multistrike now. So we really need to load on multi for that extra 5%. Any thoughts on this?

Wondering how people finding gear upgrades.. I'm finding upgrades to 700 gear which breaks 4 piece bonus is actually decreasing DPS.

 

My experience.. 4 piece 685 gear  > 700 gear.... 

 

Pretty sad IMHO that new content actually is taking us backwards

I tink this is very normal.. you can replace the set with non-set Items but for sure you will loose your bonus. This is nothing new. I think you should wait to replace your set until you at least have two pieces of the new set.. Even then the question is whats better, the 2piece bonus of T18 or 4piece bonus of T17.
