Hey everyone, new here.

I just got done with Normal Nighthold with my guild and my DPS.. well sucks. Can anyone look at my logs and see what's up? Maybe a few pointers?
Thank you!

You are using abilities that you shouldn't be. You aren't using either Hailstorm or Crashing Storm, so you should take Frostbrand off your bar entirely and use Crash Lightning only for heavy cleave and directly after using Feral Spirit. You are utterly neutering your DPS by using those abilities in your regular rotation, especially with Boulderfist. You'll get so many more Stormstrikes off if you don't waste GCD's and maelstrom on abilities that are only used with specific builds.

I've gone on the record before as saying, Boulderfist does not play nice with Fury of Air. The maelstrom generation is not as reliable; however this is not as serious of an issue and if you are comfortable with it, you can use this build. I have seen some very high parses using this combo. It's just that people started using FoA when they buffed the maelstrom generation on Rockbiter, and Boulderfist didn't get that. It is better overall to use Crashing Storm for the fights when you can use Crash Lightning in AoE.

Start with practicing the right abilities with the correct priority list. If you are going to use Boulderfist, it will be the IV T19 4-piece rotation, except that maintaining Fury of Air is your #1 priority.

  1. Cast Boulderfist Icon Boulderfist to generate Maelstrom, if the buff is not currently active, or you are about to hit 2 charges.
  2. Cast Feral Spirit Icon Feral Spirit on cooldown. Follow this immediately with a Crash Lightning Icon Crash Lightning cast to activate  Icon Alpha Wolf.
  3. Maintain the Flametongue Icon Flametongue buff.
  4. Activate  Icon Doom Winds whenever available, try to have Stormstrike Icon Stormstrike available with this.
  5. Cast Stormstrike Icon Stormstrike with Stormbringer Icon Stormbringer active.
  6. Cast Boulderfist Icon Boulderfist if under 50 Maelstrom.
  7. Cast Stormstrike Icon Stormstrike on cooldown.
  8. Cast Lava Lash Icon Lava Lash if above 70 Maelstrom.

I have a similar question so I will ask it here.

I was going with the standard build from icy-veins (I mean FoA and Windsong and Ancestral) but when I get the Legendary finger I simed my char and the Hailstorm - Boulderfist - Crash Lightening showed higher damage.

My question is what SimulationCraft shows is right or should I go for Standard build. I have 2-set btw.

Thanks.

I'm a Boulderfist / Crashing Storm fan, mainly because I have Emalon's Crashing Core but also because it's the most fun Enhancement build and it still performs well. Haven't been able to find an FoA build that I like and haven't been able to get the performance to measure up. I don't have the legendary ring or bracers, but even with my gear Hailstorm is fairly close as well, though I'm no longer as good at it as I was before 7.1.5 when I was playing with Hailstorm every day.

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.

I know this sounds bad but can anyone like dumb it down or like comment simpler instructions right now i am going off this attachment i made based of some advice and off of icy viens and i am only doing 4152 dps total so I am not sure if this is low or not but I am already level 120 right now

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
