Enhancement Assistance Please

5 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I don't know where else to go for help.  I've been struggling with enhance since the changes in 7.1.5.  Originally I thought it was a gear issue because I was performing okay on some fights in Heroic NH, but as I've gotten more gear over the past week, my numbers haven't gone up.  Here are the logs from my raid tonight: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/N8P9vaGYHCFbmtDA#type=damage-done&boss=-2&difficulty=0

I had been using Windsong and Overcharge last week, but noticed that it was just not working out, so when I swapped to Tempest instead, my numbers were about the same, so I've been using Windsong, Tempest, and FoA, like the  Wordup guide says.  Here's a link to my Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/Arthas/Donlionheart/advanced

I've run a few sims, but I'm new to sims and I'm not sure I'm inputting the data right, so it's not worth mentioning the outcomes.  Basically, I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong.  I tested out the Hot Hands talent on the dummy tonight after raid, and I did a Windsong test too, and for some reason, they were withing 10k of one another, with Hot Hands coming out on top.  Windsong seemed to give me a bigger opening burst, but I was higher more often and for longer with Hot Hands, though by the time I stopped after 4 minutes for each, they were so close it was barely worth mentioning.  Any advice is welcome, thanks.

P.S. I'm also using Chesder's (from MMO Champion) TellMeWhen strings, so maybe there's a problem with those.  If anyone has WeakAuras strings to recommend, or different TMW strings, let me know.  I used to use WeakAuras from another Shaman (a girl, I think the name was Corixa, but she doesn't make them anymore), and moved to TMW when a friend had some good strings.  Thank you.

With the legendary items you have - bracers and ring - you could try a Hot Hand / Hailstorm build. Hailstorm was buffed in a hotfix after 7.1.5 and is OK to use again. Personally, I think Boulderfist Hailstorm is still pretty bad-ass, but I do Mythic+ a lot more than I do raiding.

I got a similar tip on the MMO Champion forums, but someone later rebuked it.  I'll run some dummy tests at least, but we'll see.  I could still use advice, if anyone has any.

Hey there, I've had a similar problem during my raiding and after having read your post i decided to run some sims to see if using frostbrand was actually worth when using the bracers. Note : I do not have any other legendaries so these results may vary for you. For the talents i only simmed the difference between Hailstorm and Ancestral Swiftness. My talent setup thus was either 2312122 (AS) or 2313122 (HS). 
I've used a patchwerk style simulation of 300seconds long with 10000 itterations and got the following:
AS: 479405 dps
HS: 495867 dps

When using a haste trinket (Swarming plaguehive) the HS build simmed for 498548 dps. This was done to see if the extra haste from a trinket could outweigh the loss of AS (it did but it only gave a minor boost to dps).

So in conclusion: hailstorm is definitly worth it for me and will most likely be worth it for you aswell.
Hope this helps out

( as said before I switched a trinket, I switched spontaneous appendages for Swarming plaguehive)

Yes if you have both the bracers and ring (lucky guy ^^) I'd definitely swap to hailstorm when you get the 4s. Running the 4s build with boulderfist + crashing storms is significantly  less resource heavy allowing you to be punished less for spending the global casting frostbrand.

      Hi. This is my armory: Armory
      My logs: Logs
      I think I should do more DPS in whole ToS HC but especially on fallen avatar.
      My questions:
      i have a loot of trinkets and I'm not sure I should use those I use:
      915ilvl Vial of Ceaseless Toxins and 890ilvlUnstable Arcanocrystal
      I have 900ilvl Engine of Eradication
                  870ilvl Bloodthirsty Instinct
                  875ilvl Convergence of Fates
                  870ilvl  Spontaneous Appendages.
      My goal is to get Smoldering Heart And what is the best choice parts of T20 set with this legendary and of course Eye of the Twisting Nether.
      With this ring i have another question should i use Frostbrand? and I think last question for now: when i should use Crash Lightning after 6sec or after some stacks from T20 bonus?

      So I just got my Rogue to 110 on Monday and plan on raiding soon. But  I am a bit unhappy about Vigor not being an option. Every guide I found put the other two talents above it. I really like playing with Vigor, this might just be because my gear is still kinda bad and messed up(850ish), but it feels a lot smoother with Vigor.
      So I wanted to know why excactly the other two are better and by how much. 
      Edit: Sub

      Hi, This is about Ice Veins Demonology 100 talent discussion. I'm greatly confused about this, since I can't see any synergy between Ascendance and Soul Conduit. If anyone could clarify this. I've already thought about it having something to do with summons. But it has to do with DE so yeah. Simply can't see the synergy with theese two together.
      Copied right from the 100 talent discussion from Icy Veins:
       Soul Conduit is the best option for single target and light cleave and should be your go-to for most encounters. This talent is only worthwhile if using  Thal'kiel's Ascendance.
