Good evening.
I am currently raiding ToS and I see that I am my heal not this "cool" compared to the previous raids .. 
I am usually rarely getting first in HPS and I have the biggest ilvl of the healers in my group. (Hpriest, Rdruid and Monk). 
Am I doing something wrong? Or maybe it's because I lost mastery? I remember I was with 118% in the last raid .. 
I need help please :)

I apologize for bad english .. I used a translator

You mastery is showing 77% now, I'm not sure how one goes from 118% to that in a few items but you need to consider that stats is everything for a shaman.

I personally have not been able to equip t20 set pieces because I lose too much mastery and stats overall even though it's higher ilvl. You NEED mastery to be at the 100% mark or higher even if it means throwing set bonuses aside.

I've got 123% mastery, you can never have too much of it as a shaman :)

Also in playstyle, you're using the Jonats legendary but never cast a single Chain Heal on Mistress so thats a HPS loss right there.
The Wellspring talent is also not really worth taking even after it's buff, I would consider Acendance instead.

If you don't use Chain Heal that much then you should swap the ring for the legs instead for sure.
Current best legendaries is either Velen+Legs or swap any of the two for the Pretorian hands. Or I should say they are most commonly used.

I personally haven't had an issue even with mastery at 95%, though I do feel being 100% or higher is better and makes heals a bit stronger. Make sure that you have a comfortable amount of haste. You want your casts to not feel slow or sluggish when you aren't using bloodlust.

Trinkets make a huge difference. I have found that The Deceiver's Grand Design and Sea Star of the Depthmother work the best for me. You would definitely want to have at least one mastery trinket.

Legendaries I prefer Prydaz and the class ring. Don't hesitate to swap legandaries to fit a fight. For example on KJ I may swap the neck for the hands (I don't have the legs or feet currently). It is beneficial for you to have a legandary that heals you automatically, whether is is the neck or the legs. Helps keep you alive while you heal others. The helm I have found awesome for Enhance, but not so much for Resto. 

Without seeing an actual log it would be hard to tell what you are casting most. You want to make sure that there is a healing cooldown order. If you are popping you cooldowns with another healer that will effect your HPS greatly.  Make sure that you are using your Gift of the Queen on the tanks and melee.  If you are raid healing (which shamans excel at) then you want to make sure that you are using Chain Heal a lot (and talenting High Tide). If you are more of a Single Target and Healing Rain healer then as Arkpit said the Acendance would be better. Really a lot of how you heal is individual playstyle. Keep in mind when the boss dies you dont want to have a lot of mana left. If you do you aren't pushing hard enough. 

I have some logs of recent raids if you want to look at myself or my fellow shaman healer. Our comp is a Holy Priest and 2 shaman heals. The amount of raid cds we have is crazy.

      I usually sim my characters to get the best possible results. I enjoy the process quite a lot and since I reached 120, I wanted to find out the best build of the spec. (Note, I didn't want to find out what to play, but rather how my own build fares in comarison.) I rarely mind a 1-2% difference. If it goes above 2%, I really mind a change. What this thread is about is mainly to bring something in the attention of those who help making the class guides, especially the talent choices. To my surprise, I was awed to find out that certain talents outperform previous "Standard" choices in the endgame, probably due to the stat squish.

      The Frost go-to build (top dps) would probably be along the lines of <Icy Talons / Cold Heart - Runic Attenuation - Frozen Pulse - Gathering Storm - Breath of Sindragosa>. What I found out primarily was that after the removal of legendaries, Cold Heart severely underperforms at most given situations resulting in a major dps drop due to the low mastery. Gathering Storm also suffers from the same problem and most of the times, Frostwyrm's Fury is better overall. The biggest surprise of them all, however, was that Inexorable Assault overperforms quite a lot, and is the first reason why I made the topic. I then started simming with the above in mind and I came across a build that some would not consider on par with top dog builds around the meta, which is the use of Horn of Winter which overperforms both its other two options when using the Breath build. Talent Sim can be seen here. Another intresting thing, which I loved, was that the 2nd best build uses Obliteration as a lvl 100 talent and no other build surpassed it (Other than the first one, obviously). So, I encourage frost players out there to give their other, less common talents a try. To the class guide author(s), I believe that the two "underdog" talents will earn their spot in the class guides.

      Thank you for your time reading this.

      I'm not entirely sure what I am doing wrong that is getting me this result, but I am getting about a 30k dps difference on training dummy when I use a defile, clawing shadows, shadow infusion build than when I use the recommended talents. I left the rest of my talents unchanged and I have yet to see where the dps difference is coming from (arbiter or clawing shadows), but I'm very confused as to how this could happen.

      Defile damage breakdown, Arbiter damage breakdown
      I felt like I had a harder time keeping my disease up and using coldheart on cooldown (or rather whenever at max stacks) with the arbiter build. Am I missing some key thing or do I just need to git gud? Thanks in advance for any help.

      Hello all! I figured i'd make this thread to get some up to date information on the AOE rotation for unholy.  Currently i'm 935 ilvl, and I run Incstructor's fourth lesson and Soul. (For lack of a better option.) However it is my understanding that these two legendaries make for the strongest aoe rotation. Is this true?

       That is my first question. My second is what is the priority for aoe when running these two. Is it to wait for defile to drop, then festering wound a target a couple times, then Scourge Strike? Or is the priority to just put Wounds on then pop them asap, dropping the defile whenever it's available. Typically I wait for defile before I start building Wounds, but given the soul and the extra talent, i suspect it's better to just aoe without Defile if it's unavailable or perhaps just better to rarely spend runes on defile? Curious as to your thoughts!
