Enhance rotation/talent questions

2 posts in this topic

1) The rotation guide states that you should use flame shock EVERY time that Unleash Flame is up. Is it not a DPS loss to do this instead of using Earth Shock if more than 15 seconds are left on your active Flame Shock?

2) The talent guide mentions that Echo of the Elements is "slightly" behind Ancestral Swiftness for single target. How far behind are we talking? How do these talents compare in fights that are MOSTLY single target, but with occasional short AoE phases (Sha of Pride)?

3) The rotation guide doesn't mention the instant-cast lightning bolts that can be used with Ancestral Swiftness. Would I be correct in assuming that these should simply be used on cooldown at the same priority as a MW5 lightning bolt?

4) Apart from specific burst phases, should the Fire Elemental be simply used immediately when it comes off cooldown, or is it beneficial to wait for things like tinket procs? Does your elemental dynamically adjust to your stats as they change throughout its' duration, or do they keep the stats that are present when it is summoned?

 

Thanks!

1. Yeah that is correct. Although I haven't simmed/calculated it I assume its because Flame Shock has an initial hit and then a dot. Normally the initial damage would be lower than Earth Shock. But with the 30% buff from Unleash Flame the initital hit of Flame Shock hits harder than Earth Shock.

2. Around 2% maybe. I think when I simmed AG vs EotE in my 560ish gear I was getting around 3-5k difference. So yeah....I'm probably gonna fail more than a 5k difference smile.png

 

I tried using it on Galakras HC for the Fire Nova procs and it gave me better numbers on recount but the burst from EM on the Shamans and mini bosses help our team more. Same with Garrosh. On Sha of Pride normal the adds probably die to quickly for you to spread FS and get multiple fire nova procs with EotE. On Heroic your raidleader is probably making the tanks take the adds and asking the dps to focus down the boss to minimize the corruption-thingy.

3. Yup. AS is off the GCD so you can even macro into your lightning bolt. I have a WeakAura showing the same image when I have MW5 or if AS is not on cooldown. I see the animation, I press my button. Very simple, it doesn't ruin your MW5 procs.

4. The Elemental dynamically adjusts to your stats. It jused to be that they took a snap-shot of your stats, but now they automatically adjust to your stats. Most heavy players are watching their trinket procs very closely to min/mix. Even though FE and Wolves adjust automatically. Elemental Mastery and Ascendance can be used wisely.

You can imagine having maybe 15k agility proc and then using EM to get as many hits as you can while the proc is up. Its a min/max thing. The more important thing is to learn the fight so you don't use them on a bad place, like in a transition or something. You can even gain nice dps by popping them at the right time. Easiest example would be berskering phase for Nazgrim.

      Me and my raid group are still progressing through Mythic EN, though we have Nyth, Elerethe, and Ursoc all easily on farm. I'm consistently parsing very low for my ilvl, and consistently losing out in dps to a lower ilvl shaman of the same spec. Despite usually having better buff uptimes than him and better cd usage he parses much better than me. Usually the main difference i find is he gets off way more stormstrikes than me. Recently I've started mashing that button almost nonstop in fights, sometimes sacrificing a few seconds of buff time to get off more stormstrikes, but the results seem to be about the same as before. 
      Below you'll find logs that have both of us in them, as well as mine and his armory links. I'm Bigboyee and the other shaman is Cyrashapa. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
      The Ursoc fight in particular on this one: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/vnpwPdAC7FrHxcWV#type=damage-done&fight=12
      Ursoc and Odyn were the only clean fights we had here:https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/YfgFwB3rzH6mV1jM/#fight=2&type=damage-done

      I've been having issues where my dps is lower than it should be since I'm at a 874 ilvl. 
      I've changed mastery haste ratio and its still lower than it should be. If someone can look at my logs and help me out id be extremely grateful.

      Sorry if this has already been posted but at what point do Hailstorm trump Ancestral Swiftness? I've tried both and see the perks to both.

      Hey guys. 
      I do know which stats enhancement should go for, but i'm finding it hard to find any clues on what the stat percentages should be? I've also heard that enhancement need to alot of mastery, but how much? 
      Like some classes has to so stack haste at a certain point and so on, but what are the most optimal stat percentages for enhancement?
      I'm asking because i think i might lack mastery and that i have too much crit. http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/ragnaros/Dyppekogeren/simple

      So I've just changed my spec from elemental to enhancement which means I still have some crit chance in the sockets.
      My problem is that I think I'm not doing as much dps as I should with my current gear :

      Would be nice if someone could tell me what I can do better / where to improve :)
