Crash Lightning is used for single target because of the talent Crashing Storm. You mentioned the cone/cleave damage from Stormstrike and Lava Lash will affect your single target, but it wont since you need to hit a minimum of 2 targets for Stormstrike and Lava Lash to have any cone/cleave damage to begin with.

Not sure that the rotation section is correct. In the testing I did for days, and the testing that Wordup did, it appears that Stormstrike is a way higher priority that Crash Lightning on single target. It does so much more damage per press, plus the fact that it can reset due to mastery. Getting those out of the way should be higher than Crash Lightning. 

 

Secondly, both Wordup and I's testing showed that Crash Lightning wasn't a single target DPS increase. For cleave and AoE, then yes. But for single target, it doesn't seem to be. I even did some testing tonight with the latest build and didn't see the numbers match with what the icy-veins guide is saying regarding rotation. Same goes for the elemental guide. May need some looking at.

Even with the Crashing Storms talent, the damage output isn't even enough to warrent CL on a single target, ESPECIALLY above Stormstrike. This is back when they made the changes to crash lighting and lava lash. That was weeks ago. Not sure how that made it into this guide.

Hi, Crash Lightning is only above Stormstrike for 2+ targets. Using it in the single target rotation is only using the recommended talents, which is Crashing Storm.

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/20747154889#1 - Hotfixes.

 

I belive it's so hard to maintain a guide where every spell is changed every week. There could be even some changes to talent pick and priority stuff.

 

Also, I read in this guide, this spec is very simple. Does it really that simple? Or concept is simple but execution with certain setup isn't. I'm curious.

 

Thanks for the guide Furty and Wordup.

Heya, you're absolutely right, it's been very hectic lately! That said, the talent build is current with the hotfixes :) Enhancement is a very simple spec, but like most straightforward specializations, that only makes it more important that you don't make (m)any mistakes. Sometimes with these kinds of specs it can be easy to think that "there's nothing else I can do better" when you should always be on the lookout for opportunities to maximize the unique nature of some of your abilities as well as the rotation itself.

This sentence reads funny: " Windsong has too does not scale as well as  " from 3. Tier 1 (level 15) talents. Has too = also?

Fixed, thanks!

Thanks for answer, hope it gonna be entertaining to the end of expansion. It's the spec I played the most in my WoW history. 

Can you point what specs gonna be the hardest with highest skill-cap? Always looking to improve myself, could be helpful at some point later into expansion.

Cheers.

Made a nice macros for Tier 2 talents (Feral lunge and WInd RUsh totem). When u r playing solo or in small group - u dont need totem, because of 2 min cd, but u can easliy to use Feral lunge for packs and mobs, because it gives small, but initial damage. So macros is:

 /use [talent:2/2]Feral lunge;[talent:2/3]Wind rush totem

[Talent:2(tier)/2(talent in tier)](Name of the talent);

Leave it without an image and bring it to the panel. So when u'r using Feral lunge talent - this macros will be used as Feral Lunge, but when u r in raid and chose Wind Rush Totem - using this macros will let u to put out the totem where ever u want.

You can do the same with any other tiers where you have 2 or more usable talents (such as tier 7, Ascendance or Earthen spike, when it will be useful,)

Thanks for the guide, made me reconsider some of my choices, I really like how you give reasons for each choice. :)

For the stat priorities: is it 17% total haste (what the character sheet lists), or 17% additional haste from gear (~28.7% on the paper doll)?

 

Edit: Disregard, I answered my own question. The extra 10% haste was from talents. Nothing to see here... keep moving along... This is not the internet post you are looking for.

On prepatch I guess you need much more than 17%. Right now I have about 22% of haste (32% with Ancestral Swiftness) an 52% of mastery. Having this numbers is not bad (made 200k burst on 3 targets with Maalus, Mirror of blademaster and Capacitor trinkets, without BL and Draenic pot, with all CD used, maintained 95k dps after all went down), but sometimes I have to stand for about 1 second without using anything because of different occasions, such as - I dont have enough Maelstrom even though I dont use Lava Lash almost anytime, or everything on CD. With Boulderfist I cant even reach Maelstrom cap without wolfs.. So with haste on 17% - you'd indeed have some problems with Maelstrom management, but having haste more than 30-35% will make u loose mastery, so stormbringer wont proc u 1 (or 2 with talent) additional Stormstrikes. But my guess that this guide is best for having an artifact weapon. Artifact can give you much better Maelstrom management, so DPS itself, because you'd have enough of it to even use Lava Lash while SS or CL on cooldown. In raid - had about 70k to 85k dps on mobs (top at 105k dps on large pack), around 65 to 75 on boss himself.

 

On PTR I had a hard time understanding how to play and what rotation to use and thought that I'd switch to the other class, but after playing a while on live with my main equiped character I can say that Enh shaman is actually cool class. I'm almost every time with top DPS (unless we have Fire Mage or Shadow Priest in group) in raid. Mechanics are great, you can use all skills on their own but they can perfectly be 'macrosed' with eachother, so you can bring 2-3 buttons to only 1.

Hey all!

I went ahead and took the time to make some weapon enhancement trackers for Weak Auras! Here's a link to my pastebin with instructions and three different trackers for Flametongue, Frostbrand and Boulderfist.

For Flametongue and Frostbrand, I created them such that when it's time to refresh the buffs, your actionbar button will light up and the actual buff tracker will start a countdown as well as bounce to get your attention!

Feel free to shoot any creative feedback my way since I am fairly new at making my own WeakAuras!

Thank you for you post, Shuttle, but this thread is more for discussing of the guide rather than posting your own things for feedback. If you'd be so kind to register on the site and post your auras here or here, it would be awesome and you will get a lot of feedback and thanks :)

Thanks for letting me know Pandacho!

I realized my mistake in pre-emptively posting before actually registering, I think I was just too excited to share! I posted in both of those Forum Topics and am registered!

How much mastery do I have to obtain to continue gathering haste, or what difference between haste and mastery in % do I have to master?

thanks

      Redditor Vorsa believes to have found the potential location of N'Zoth's prison in Battle for Azeroth by studying the maps!
      It's kind of an open secret that there will be moderate to heavy Old God involvement in the plot of Battle for Azeroth, potentially even later being revealed as the spark for the renewed Alliance/Horde animosity. N'Zoth and the Void Lords were expected to be the next expansion after Legion for quite a while, but with BfA it seems like we're either getting a mixed bag with PvP focus and Old Gods, or, which I think is more likely, BfA will be the bridge expansion between us fighting the Legion and then full on fighting the Void Lords in the next one.
      However, redditor Vorsa has delved into some old maps and thinks he found the potential location of N'Zoth's prison/Ny'alotha on the Battle for Azeroth map. It makes perfect sense if we'll be getting to see the old god/his city in BfA, as it's positioned smack down in the middle between Zandalar and Kul Tiras:

      So, is Ny'lotha going to be BfA's Argus type final patch? Is it going to bridge over into a full-on Old God/Void Lord expansion or will be dealing with N'Zoth himself directly in BfA? Will the whole Horde/Alliance scuffle turn out to be a complete Old God manipulation?
      What do you guys think?

      In order to improve the AoE performance of Shadow Priests in short duration multitarget situations, changes are planned for the class with next week's maintenance.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the next weekly maintenance, we'll be shifting around some of Shadow Priests' damage sources with the goal of improving their AOE damage performance in short-duration multitarget situations - namely dungeon trash packs.

      The nature and lifetime of dungeon trash packs makes it hard for Shadow Priests to ramp up to their full damage potential as part of their rotation. These changes should improve that situation, with a mostly neutral effect for overall performance in longer-duration raid fights.  Void Eruption No longer deals a separate damage event for each of your Shadow Word: Pain or Vampiric Touch on each target. Instead, deals a single damage event to all targets that have EITHER your Shadow Word: Pain or Vampiric Touch. Void Eruption damage increased by 700% Shadow Crash Cooldown reduced to 20 sec. (down from 30 sec) Insanity generation increased to 20. (up from 15) Missile speed increased by 60%. Mind Sear (Passive) Damage increased by 50%. Heart of the Void (Legendary) Increases Void Eruption’s damage by 75% (down from 300%) and heals you for 25% (down from 40%) of the damage done. Developers Note: This is compensation for the Void Eruption buff. The overall effect is mostly neutral. Shadow Word: Pain/Vampiric Touch Damage reduced by 4%. Developers Note: This is compensation for the Void Eruption buff in extended fights.

      World of Warcraft is currently on discount and redditor Gankeros pointed out an interesting fact; a level 100 boost costs just $25 and that's not the only thing!
      Level 100 Boost for $25
      Up to 8 World of Warcraft licenses can be attached to a single Battle.net account. The best thing is that the level 100 boost is account-wide, so after you activate the secondary game license, you can use the level 100 boost on your main (primary) license.
      Go to Account Management and under "Game Accounts", navigate to World of Warcraft and select the "Play for free" option to create a new World of Warcraft license. You should be then offered a WoW bundle for $25 / 25 EUR.
      Other Benefits of 2 World of Warcraft Accounts
      The standard Battle Chest comes with 30 days of game time and Black Friday is the ideal time to buy another WoW copy in case you've ever wanted to try out multiboxing. ISBoxer should be your go-to multiboxing software for World of Warcraft. They even offer a trial and it's really easy to set up. Don't forget to recruit yourself before doing any of this!
      If you don't need Legion, it's still good to least buy the Battle Chest for gold making. The first account is obviously your main and the second can be used for sniping. It gets even better if you have two monitors and you log in simultaneously on both accounts. Sniping is well worth it and the account will pay for itself in the long run. What exactly is sniping? The process of constantly checking the last page of the Auction House for cheap deals using preset filters. The main issue with a single license is that you can't be logged in on two characters at the same time. With two accounts, you can have one constantly sniping the Auction House, while you're playing your main.
