I don't really understand. Did you choose Elemental Blast as a talent?

on your opener if you have elemental blast shouldn't you use that at the pull instead of lightning bolt?  Gives you a short time of buffed Lava bolt spam.  Was also thinking that precasting earthquake would be beneficial as well cause of mastery and that.  Not sure though.  Just a thought.

Good suggestion, I added Earthquake to the opening sequence. Elemental Blast was already in it, but you must have missed it tongue.png

hello.

i have 2 questions.

first, why Earthquake is in checklist of the single target rotation, and why only if you are in full tier 16 heroic gear. Is there any bonus with Earthquake in tier 16hc??

second, why aren't gems with intelect in gems list (i mean red gem).

The Earthquake thingie is extremely complex. Purge tried to explain it to me, but honestly, I didn't quite get it all. Basically, the more Multistrike you have on your gear, compared to Haste and Mastery, the less interesting it becomes to cast Earthquake. At Level 90, there is only one trinket with Multistrike, so you cast Earthquake in your single-target rotation. At level 100, you start getting a lot of Multistrike and there is a point where it will no longer be worth it to keep casting Earthquake in single-target rotation. I'm dreading the moment I have to put this into words in the guide :p

 

Regarding gems, it's because you only get +5 Intellect when you get +10 of any secondary stats. So, when 1 Intellect > 1 Secondary Stat, it does not mean that 1 Intellect > 2 Secondary Stat.

Hi there!  I'm not seeing anything about stat caps.  Can I get a heads up on when I should stop with Mastery/Haste/Crit?

Hey there.

 

Is there any informations concerning stat weights for elemental shaman to be able to build a BiS list for WOD raids ?

I can see the stat priority but can't define a real stat weight.

Hey, thanks for the guide.

 

Are you waiting for more time at 100 before offering an opinion on the tier 7 talents? Just wondering if that's an oversight or something not covered by the current guide.

I contacted our reviewer a bit late, so he's still working on the review, but I'm hoping to have the guide updated tomorrow.

Please Help -

 

I am Currently a 100 elemental shaman with 628 iLvl

I have 8.15% crit

+110.05% Haste

82.92% Mastery

Multistrike 30.52%

Versatility 2.90%

 

I feel that my Current Single target dps is garbage and i dont know if it is the class or if im doing something wrong, i feel that my damage output is very sparatic, i find that on some dps pulls i am doing anywhere from 8k - 23k dps and aoe im doing around 28k-45k is there something special that i am missing from my Single target dps rotation that may help stabalize my dps output on a single target boss and not have it be so all over the place, thanks in advanced.

At point 5.1 you forgot that now Lava burst generates charges of lighting shield with the new upgraded shield!

Note that you should always prioritise casting wow_icon_spell_shaman_lavaburst.jpgLava Burst over consuming your charges of wow_icon_spell_nature_lightningshield.jpLightning Shield with wow_icon_spell_nature_earthshock.jpgEarth Shock, even if you have 17 charges. Indeed, Lava Burst does not generate extra charges of Lightning Shield, so you will never run the risk of wasting a charge of Lightning Shield when you cast Lava Burst

 

Isn't this wrong thanks to the Draenor Perk Improved Lightning Shield. I thought Improved Lightning Shield gives our Lava Burst a chance to create a fulmination charge.

You guys are absolutely right! I added some explanations to say that this was no longer true. Note that the rotation already accounted for the change, it's just that we forgot to update that particular paragraph smile.png

In section 4 of the rotation guide "Cooldown Usage" it mentions using "Magma Totem" depending on the situation, I think the only situation would be that you are in the wrong spec... This is the elemental shaman guide.... right?

As Gorac, I have the same ilvl and compared with my enhancement role... I deal like way less damages, my DPS is far under the enhancement  one.

I don't get it. Plus the boss are always grabbing me, asking me to move and all, it makes the elemental really uncomfortable compared with the enhancement one...

 

Any advice please? smile.png

somehow i am in doubt about crit being as good a mastery/haste for damage, as our best and most cast is always crit (lave burst). can you explain it to me? i would think mastery above crit as it can multistrike and you already have a nice base crit chance of 10% with party buffs.

 

they said they are going to buff shaman dps, but dident say how yet. so there might be changes in the near future for the rotation if its not a pure damage increase on our spells.

      If you're making use of the XP buff leveling new characters and you're tired of the Warlords of Draenor intro questline, which involves Khadgar, there's a workaround at level 90 to skip it and here's how.
      Note that the Warlords of Draenor intro rewards a fair amount of XP these days, and you are sacrificing it to save time with the skip.
      At level 90, you must head to Khadgar and complete the intro prologue to Draenor. While the intro gives you a fair amount of Experience with the double XP buff, chances are you could have grown tired of completing it over and over on multiple characters.
      We recommend using the skip ideally if you have:
      Unlocked Draenor Pathfinder (flying in Draenor), because you will end up in Gorgrond and it will take you some time to head back to your Garrison to start questing; Inflatable Mount Shoes on a mount for water walking in case you have no flying unlocked, which makes it less painful reaching locations and unlocking your Garrison. At level 90, take the portal from Stormwind/Orgrimmar to Jade Forest and head to the Timeless Isle in Pandaria (see map below for exact location). There, you will find an underwater cave with chairs. Sit on them and click the campfire to teleport to Gorgrond.

      From there, you can head to Iron Docks if you have a flying mount, and the flight master will take you to your Garrison even though they (the flight masters) aren't marked on the map.

      We have some more art-related content, but this time around it's not just fans painting their favorite characters, but actually transforming WoW into a painting - and without using any mod! Now, there's plenty of mods already out there that you can use to change the game's aesthetics, but with Blizzard's recent tightening of EULA enforcement, it could possibly be risky using some of them (although they've been mostly safe to use so far).
      This one requires an Nvdia card and is much, much easier than putting a mod in, you just need the Geforce app and to click a few things, and your game could be looking like this (just click on the image and the video will play):
      As noted by the poster, kathrad_, this also messes with the UI, so you're either going to have to just use it to marvel at the visuals around the world, or be really good with your spec rotation, as you won't really be seeing much of the UI. Also, perhaps don't go raiding or doing high M+ keys, as ground effects and similar probably won't be as noticeable.
      Interestingly, there are plenty of people in the reddit thread that actually didn't note the difference in the look of the game, saying that the above just looks like regular Darnassus! I guess it's been on fire for so long people have a very painterly memory of the once Night Elf capital.
      If you have some great mods that alter the game's look, share em below and let's see just how much WoW can be changed.

      While it's no surprise many game developers and producers spent time playing WoW, hearing that Valve co-founder and internet santa Gabe Newell actually spent time intensively farming gold in it is slightly more surprising. While talking to Edge magazine (issue 344) he mentioned how, while doing research on games as productivity platforms, he decided to farm gold in World of Warcraft to see if it was worth it.
      And he turned out to be pretty good at it, as his efforts started netting him around $20 per hour, which in turn proved to him that the concept was sound and that realization lead to the addition of the Steam Workshop, where Steam users could create their own content for the games they were playing, starting with the now legendary Team Fortress 2 hats, and peaking with the insane prices for certain CS: GO skins.

      This particular skin went for over $60,000, with a signature
      of a pro player, and it's "only" worth $20,000 without it.
      And so, without the monotony of gold farming, we may not have gotten the Steam Workshop, so the next time you're feeling annoyed at having to grind that 5 mil for the Brutosaur, just think of all the things we wouldn't have had if items in WoW were cheaper!
