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.

Thanks,

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!

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      I'm sure this is a popular topic so I apologize if this is the 1 millionth time you've seen this.
      I haven't played a level capped character since probably Wrath of the Lich King.  Friends are sucking me back in and I'm thinking about picking up Warrior.  I used to love tanking as a warrior but unfortunately (or fortunately) it looks like all the tank slots are filled.  Basically my question is, is rolling Warrior a wise choice?  Are they fun to play?  Pretty sure id pick Fury as my DPS spec but I don't know how it or arms plays now. I want to be competitive on the meters against my guildmates but I don't think we're going to be super hardcore.
      I suppose this is "living the dream" but i want to be near the top of the DPS charts while having fun doing it. Is the warrior for me? Other classes I was looking at were Shadow Priest, Hunter, or Death Knight.
      I guess I should also mention that I haven't played in a LONG time so ill probably be doing things like world pvp, BGs, 5-mans, ect.  I'm not an Arena type of person.

      Hello!
       
      I was recently asked to start playing enhance for my guild. So nothing else to do than grabbing the good ol' hammers and start swinging. I've read the guides here on IV, watched a few videos on Youtube and been on and off on the enhance discord.  I thought I got the hang of it, felt pretty comfortabel doing a few bosses but when I skimmed through  our loggs from a few of the bosses I noticed that my preformance is more or less  garbage.
      I decided to test my luck here. I was hoping that someone could analyze my loggs and give me a few pointers on what and what not to do.
      I would also appreciate  a few tips and trix about how to start analyzing my preformance myself so I dont have to turn back here as soon as the RNG gods are not with me.
      Here is the log I was refering to:
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/DwMV3GWf64pykrPZ#fight=last
      And here is my armoy: 
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/stormreaver/blu
       
      In advance I apologize for any misspelling and other nonsense that might confuse you. I should point out that English is not my main language.
      If you need any other basic information in order to help me just give me a shout and I will comply.
       
      Thanks!

      Hi, i have just tried out some Antorus bosses in mythic and i saw, that my logs are so.... 
      In heroic difficulty my logs are better. So I have no idea, what am I doing wrong there... As I am doing the same thing, only with a bit more tactics...
      Can anybody give some tips, on this matter?

      Hay,
       
      I seem to struggle to get better DPS. I figured out that i used chaos strike and blade dance to less. and i should use less Throw glaive and fellrush. 
      But i stil seem to have trouble getting my dps on.  Please take a look on the logs at the 14th. 
      I really dislike using the "eye beam build" (it feel slow to me) so i still use the 2221311 build.
