The rotation of an Enhancement Shaman revolves around the following priority list. It is unchanged for single target or AoE.

  1. Maintain the Boulderfist Icon Boulderfist and Landslide Icon Landslide buffs.
  2. Maintain the Hailstorm Icon Hailstorm buff (if talented) with Frostbrand Icon Frostbrand.
  3. Cast Crash Lightning Icon Crash Lightning if it is available and 3+ targets are present and stacked.
  4. Cast Stormstrike Icon Stormstrike whenever available (be alert for Stormbringer Icon Stormbringer procs!).
  5. Cast Boulderfist Icon Boulderfist if you have less than 130 Maelstrom and have 2 charges of Boulderfist Icon Boulderfist.
  6. Maintain the Flametongue Icon Flametongue buff.
  7. Summon your Feral Spirit Icon Feral Spirits if they are available.
  8. Activate Icon Doom Winds whenever available.
  9. Cast Crash Lightning Icon Crash Lightning when available if you are talented into Crashing Storm Icon Crashing Storm.
  10. Cast Lava Lash Icon Lava Lash when you have more than 110 Maelstrom Power.
  11. Cast Boulderfist Icon Boulderfist to generate Maelstrom Power.
  12. Cast Flametongue Icon Flametongue.
  13. Cast Lightning Bolt Icon Lightning Bolt if you are not in melee range.


2.2. Crash Lightning Explained

It is natural to look at Crash Lightning Icon Crash Lightning and expect it to only be used in AoE situations, however, it is equally effective on a single target when you are talented into Crashing Storm Icon Crashing Storm (provided your target will not move out of the zone). Ensure that when you are using Crash Lightning Icon Crash Lightning in an AoE or cleave scenario that you position so that all targets are in front of you.


So yes, use in singletarget if talented into crashing storm. It's a basic priority system and it's pretty good explained in the guide here on IV.

Not quite sure why the question was edited out, but thanks for replying to whatever it was Troels.
