Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.

Well, since you didn't get a second TW, your Shard legendary was completely useless. It was just a stat stick, nothing else. 

Your gear is overall not really optimal, at all. You used Shard when you had no extra TW, you have no T20 2-P, your NLC traits suck. 

Your traits are Master of Shadows, Secure in the Light and Murderous Intent - Compared to the top choice of Torment the Weak, Master + Murderous together only just beat 1 choice of TtW in terms of % DPS outut.

For your main tier traits, you are running: 2x Icy Caress, 1x Obsidian Lance, 1x The Storm Rages and 2x Clarity of Thought.

In terms of ST damage, which we're seeing on Vari, The Storm Rages is completely useless. It is a dead trait. Your 2x Clarity of Thought are worth more than the rest of your traits combined. And I don't mean a bit more, I mean, 1.5x more in terms of % DPS.

Your Vitality Resonator can be beaten by so many other trinkets that I'm not sure if it's the only one you have or if you're choosing to use it. Your guild's kill time is far too slow to be using VR. It's used on so many top parses because they have ~2 minute kills, meaning they benefit from the max-intellect buff for a much larger portion of the fight. At 4+ minutes, that's not really happening anymore.

Also make sure to roll your Veiled Argunite for a chance at an Arcanocrystal! High enough titanforge and it'll be your BiS for ages!

      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.

      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      TLDR; we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other. 
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)

      <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.
