HELP: Enhancement Shaman Trinket Choices

4 posts in this topic

Hello everyone. I have recently decided to play my Enhancement Shaman as my main and so far I am really enjoying it. However, I have run into an issue trying to figure out which trinkets I should be using. (From both what I currently have, and what I should be aiming to grind for etc.) I currently have an 860 Unstable Arcano Crystal, an 835 Spontaneous Appendages, and an 840 Bloodthirsty Instinct. I have simmed all trinkets and they are relatively neck and neck. I also understand that simms are not always 100% correct. As stated before which trinkets should I look to grind for as well? I have heard that memento from MoS is a good trinket as well and just would like to have a clear answer. So overall, I would like to know which 2 trinkets should I use out of what I currently have available, and what trinkets should i be aiming for by the end of Emerald Nightmare. Any help you all could share would be greatly appreciated. Also, I have posted my most recent Nythendra Log and Armory if anyone wanted to those sources.

The trinkets you listed are all very good, but since the iLvl differences are so large you should probably stick with the Unstable Arcano Crystal and the Bloodthirsty. The Bloodthirsty gives the most consistent bonuses for enhancement shamans. the iLvl difference between the appendages and the others make it a bit weaker but for end-game trinkets you should probably go for high iLvl Bloodthirsty Instinct and high iLvl Spontaneous Appendages. This is excluding the obvious Six-Feathered Fan trinket (@850) which is the best trinket you can get for Enhancement Shamans until I think about Mythic iLvl trinkets of Bloodthirsty and Spontaneous Appendages. 

You can check out the trinket simulation comparisons here done by Wordup, a trusted and known enhancement shaman who knows his stuff. He compares multiple trinkets at the same iLvl (850). The trinket simulations are at the way bottom of the document.

Note that this only is at 850 so if you get like an 865 version of a lower ranked trinket, it may overall be better for you than the 850 version of the other trinket.

Thank you very much! This is exactly what I am looking for!

      Hello everyone
      My guild and I raided EN last sunday and cleared normal mode easy enough and because we still had time, we started a heroic run aswell. For HC, I started a log that includes the boss kills Nythendra, Il'gynoth and Dragons of Nightmare.
      I am able to extract quite a bit of information for healers and DDs, but it seems that I don't really know what to look for, when trying to determine MY performance as a Blood DK (Yovana). I'm sure the information is there, but when it comes to Tanks in general, I'm struggling a little bit.
      In general, I think I'm doing ok because I don't get complaints from the healers and I don't really die, but if someone could point out obvious mistakes or inefficiencies, that would be very helpful.
      What catches my eye is the rather high amount of overheal of DS with 40%. I know that this is not really good, but then again, if I'm not taking any substantial amount of dmg, I'm not gonna sit on my runes and instead deal dmg with DS. So that explains the overheal a bit.
      Note that we had to top off our group with random players (1 random healer and several random DDs).

      Thank you all for any help in this matter and have a nice day

      Hello everyone.
      I was wondering if I should change my rotation to include Frostbrand, just to keep all 3 of the Twisting Nether Buffs up at all times or if the 1.5% more Damage are not worth it.
      Before 7.1.5 it was obviously no problem to keep up all buffs, due to Hailstorm but now I have no good way to get the Frost Part. Am I missing something?
       
      Thanks in Advance for you help.

      Hi all,
      i started again since WOTLK to play again my shaman , i leveled up as an elemental since i was always played elemental in the past.
      I tested the enchanement a bit , and i like him BUT i dont have in mind to raid except LFR ofc and some heroic dungeons and of course WQ's and grind.
      So i am thinking which spec has better survivability i cannot decide , some times ele doing better some times enha going faster vice versa :/
      I know that as a casual player now i have to play what is more fun for me BUT with the artifact AP to the weapons ( i have both to lvl 13 but now the AP is going bigger) its not so easy so i have to decide at least which spec to level up the weapon first so an opinion could help me decide.
      All i need is fast grind,good dps in dungeons and easy playing with good survivability .
      Thank you all for your replies :)
