I just can't find the answer. Why are elemental shamans who take ascendance as their final talent not supposed to use earth shock during ascendance? earth shock does 920% spell power. lava burst does 275%. If you overload with lava burst you do an additional 206% totaling 481% spell power. if you have 25% crit during ascendance lava burst is now 343% spell power and the overload is 257% equaling a total of 600% spell power. you are missing out on a instant cast spell for 320% additional spell power worth of damage; and quite often times twice during ascendance. that's 640% spell power which is more than a lava burst cast during ascendance with 25% crit.
I currently have 18% crit chance and during ascendance I'm critting lava burst at 434k (not extremely well geared I know, but the ratio is still present). earth shock at 100 maelstrom non crit is 400k. If you don't crit with earth shock you lose very little damage. However, if you crit with earth shock you do easily over 1million damage (several lava burst crits worth) I really don't see a down side to using earth shock during ascendance other than 2-4 seconds off of fire elemental due to elementalist in your artifact tree.
By all means show me that I'm being silly. Please. Thanks all
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?
So I have a pretty solid ilvl that it feels like I'm underperforming for. On movement fights, or when I get a streak of proc, I tend to drop buffs, which I'm working on. I was hoping I could get some pointers for things I should focus on beyond that.
Most recent log:
I appreciate any help I can get!
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.
I know Unleash Doom was recommended as the second golden talent before getting Doom Vortex, but since Vortex just got buffed, and I am also using the Overcharge and Hot Hand talent; Is Vortex better to grab first now? Especially due to it proccing off Overcharged lightning bolts and the increased Lava Lash damage on the way down to it.
