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 am following the rotation given in the class page on here. My parses are terrible for my ilvl and I don't understand what i am doing wrong and why my dps isn't higher. i havent been using firestarter because i feel like the boss is only above 90% for 5 seconds. Been using RoP for most fights because i have T21 4p.

      Hi
      I have one few questions concerning fury rotation:
      1. Should I use bloodbath only with Battle Cry?
      2. Should I use Rampage immediately after it is available or should I always wait for Frothing Berserker?
      3. During Enrage time, should I spam raging blow or prioritize bloodthirst then raging blow?
      4. Is CoF ilvl860 better then nightmare egg ilvl940?
      Best regards

      Hiya!
      Can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong with my frostmage, since it feels like I'm underperforming compared to other guys with the same ilvl.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/pMdCBwHG6mQb712z This is a normal pug run I did yesterday.
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/draenor/blastgasm link to my armory.
       
      Edit: Will add a bit more info now since I was in a hurry when i wrote this.
       
      I know i dont have the optimal legendaries. Only got 2 to drop on my mage. The gloves and the waist. During this normal run i probably had the wrong talent setup for some fights (arctic gale on tichondrius etc.). The question is, what can i improve? Do i need to get Better legendaries or is My rotation slightly off?

      Hi
      So, lately I have been looking around the web for someone to explain how I can insert an icon/bar that displays the "buff" Feral Spirit. I am mainly using the Tell Me When addon, but I had to go  through Weak Auras this time to get it right. I also want to mention that I would not have been able to get it right had I not imported the Weak Auras string from Wordup (author of the enhancement shaman guide). The reason for this being so complicated is because contrary to what you might think, Feral Spirit does not work as a buff. Therefore you will have to manually work around this problem to get it to work. I have added some pictures that will hopefully make the process easier.
      PS. I am in no way an expert on either Tell Me When or Weak Auras, so be gentle...
      1) Tell Me When:

      This is the general layout. If you dont want an icon, but a bar. You can go into the "group" tab (bottom right of tell me when) and select bar (on the very top)
       

      This is how the layout inside Tell Me When should look after completion. Feral Spirit is no longer a "buff", so you will have to make a Combat Event where you manually enter the amount of seconds the combat event (Feral Spirit) should be active, in this case 15 seconds
       

      This is important: Events to check --> Casts --> Spell Cast Success
      After all that you should be ready to go!
       
       
      2) Weak Auras:

       

      Feral Spirit is no longer a "buff", so you will have to make a Combat Log where you manually enter the amount of seconds the combat event (Feral Spirit) should be active, in this case 15 seconds
       

      Just scrolling down
       

      All the way at the bottom you have to enter the Spell Name and the amount of seconds that the Combat Event (Feral Spirit) should be active.
      Now you should be all ready to go!
