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?

      Five years ago, Blizzard released the fifth World of Warcraft expansion: Mists of Pandaria. Check out our retrospective to learn more about raids, features and changes that were added throughout the expansion!
      Overview
      The fifth expansion added Pandaren and Monks. Below is an overview of the most interesting highlights.
      Mists of Pandaria Pre-Patch (5.0.4)
      New Talent System
      New layout for specializations was introduced with Core Abilities for each spec.  Account-wide Mounts, Pets & Achievements
      Allowed working on a wide variety of Achievements across multiple characters. Once you earned a mount or pet on one character, all characters on that account were able to summon it. Cross-Realm Zones (CRZ)
      In Mists of Pandara, cross-realm zones were introduced for the first time and over the years, they've become an essential part of the game. AoE Looting
      One of the most desired features of the expansion was AoE looting. Players no longer had to click each corpse individually to get loot. All loot can be picked up with a single right click. BattleTag Support
      The permanent account-wide nicknames on Battle.net made their way into the game. Patch 5.1 (Landfall)
      The first content patch of the expansion added a new max-level zone called Krasarang Wilds with new daily quest hubs and two factions.
      Operation Shieldwall (Alliance) Dominance Offensive (Horde) Brawler's Guild
      The first Season of Brawler's Guild was added to the game. New Scenarios
      Mists of Pandaria had a lot of scenarios if you remember. In Patch 5.1, Blizzard added the following:  "A Little Patience", "Lion's Landing", "Dagger in the Dark", "Domination Point" and Assault on Zan'vess". Patch 5.2 (The Thunder King)
      The second content patch brought Throne of Thunder, Tier 15 sets, a new zone called the Isle of Thunder with new factions and world bosses.
      Here's a look at Tier 15 Sets. Note that Throne of Thunder is easily soloable right now, so if you like any of those, go grab them!
      Blizzard (Source)
      The beating drums of war are growing louder, and both the Alliance and Horde are gathering along the shores of the Isle of Thunder. It’s time to face the risen king and his growing army. Before you strike out against the terrors of the island, though, take a peek at the tier 15 armor sets that can be found inside the Throne of Thunder.

      Death Knight - All-Consuming Maw

      Druid - Haunted Forest

      Hunter - Saurok Stalker

      Mage - Chromatic Hydra

      Monk - Fire-Charm

      Paladin - Lightning Emperor

      Priest - Exorcist

      Rogue - Nine-Tail

      Shaman - Witch Doctor

      Warlock - Thousandfold Hells

      Warrior - Last Mogu
      In Patch 5.2, Wrathion wanted to investigate the origins of the mogu's power and emulate them. In Mists of Pandaria, players were able to get a Legendary cloak with unique effects.
      Patch  5.3 (Escalation)
      In this patch, both factions got new scenarios and Garrosh Hellscream declared martial law in Orgrimmar, expelling the Darkspear Trolls from th city and sending his elite Kor'kron Guard throughout Durotar and the Barrens to supply his war in Pandaria. Vol'jin began an insurrection agaist the Warchief, and both the Aliance and the Horde shared the same goal of success. 
      Brawler's Guild
      Two new tiers of bosses were added to the Brawler's Guild. PvP
      Deepwind Gorge battleground was added to the game.  The Tiger's Peak Arena was introduced. Patch 5.4 (The Siege of Orgrimmar)
      Garrosh built a compound beneath Ragefire Chasm and infused the True Horde with the pilfered essence of Y'shaarj, eager to rebuild the Horde in his image: strong, obedient and pure. The tensions stoked by Garrosh Hellscream's arrogance reached a boling point with the devastation unleashed upon the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. Siege of Orgrimmar contains 14 bosses and four wngs as members of the Horde and Alliance take the war directly to Garrosh's doorstep.
      Timeless Isle
      A new max-level PvE zone located to the east of the Jade Forest was added to the game with a new faction and world bosses like the four August Celestials or Ordos, who drops Damien's Ice-Vein Mask :). New Raid Mode
      With SoO Blizzard introduced Flexible raid mode, where players could form groups sized anywhere from 10-25 people, and the difficulty would automatically adjust to allow an appropriately challenging experience. The Proving Grounds
      To learn a new or perfect your current playstyle, Blizzard added the Proving Grounds to the game. You could access them by talking to your Class Trainer or Trial Master Rotun inside the Temple of White Tiger. (Source)
