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.

      World Quests have had their rewards updated, demons are invading various parts of the Broken Shore and reputations with Legion factions beyond Exalted yield additional rewards.
      World Quests
      Had their rewards bumped up to item level 860+.

      Demon Assaults
      On PTRs, zones are periodically under attack and they switch every 3 hours, but it may be only to speed up testing. Once you zone in, you'll auto-accept the following quests if the zone you enter is under attack, for example Assault on Val'sharah. You have to complete 6 invasions in that area. Assaults are basically the same as World Quests. When a zone is invaded, no World Quests are available.
      An invasion is indicated by a big logo on the world map.

      Invasion quests also have different icons than regular World Quests.

      Demons are all over the place. You will be closing portals, killing various enemies including commanders.

      Flight Master Mount Change
      The flying mount used for transport across the Broken Shore has changed.


      Reputation Paragon
      If you've reached Exalted with Legion factions, every 20,000 additional reputation you'll get will award additional caches. We don't know if the caches have an increased chance to give you a Legendary or notable item upgrades, but let's hope the rewards are better, because you don't collect 20,000 reputation in the blink of an eye and getting an item level 835 that ends as a Chaos Crystal is all but rewarding. It's also worth noting that saving all reputation items for 7.2 isn't a bad idea as they will come in handy. Obtaining 10 caches rewards the Paragon of the Broken Isles achievement.
