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.

      The Vulpera Bag of Tricks racial works just like Mole Machine, allowing your character to discover new harmful and helpful tricks in the open world. In this week's 8.3 PTR build, 3 new tricks have been added.
      When reaching into your Bag of Tricks, you can pick a helpful trick to heal your allies or a harmful one to deal damage to your enemies.

      New characters start with Healing Vial and Corrosive Vial. This week, Blizzard added Holy Relic, Flames of Fury, and Sinister Shadows on 8.3 PTR. We will be able to discover up to 13 tricks in the future according to WoWDB.
      Helpful Tricks
      Healing Vial - Heals a friend for [ Greater of {270% of Spell Power} or {270% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Nature. Share the wealth! Holy Relic (new)- Heals a friend for 28. Share the wealth! Harmful Tricks
      Corrosive Vial - Splash your enemy with corrosive fluid, dealing [ Greater of {180% of Spell Power} or {180% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Nature damage. A good reason not to drop your bag! Flames of Fury (new) - Blast your enemy with the FLAMES, dealing [ Greater of {180% of Spell Power} or {180% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Fire damage. Sinister Shadows (new) - Torment the enemy with sinister power, dealing [ Greater of {180% of Spell Power} or {180% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Shadow damage. Check out our Visions of N'Zoth hub to learn more about Patch 8.3.

      While Shadowlands is looking really good and most of the community seems really hyped for it, the intro cinematic was a bit more divisive. With Sylvanas trampling Bolvar with relative ease, a lot of players have been voicing their dissatisfaction over how the fight went, or at the very least at how it was presented, with the Banshee Queen seeming a tad overpowered. But in comes Kirill Stepanov with his re-imagining of how the fight went down, with Bolvar earning his title this time around:

      Now sure, technically Sylvanas could still get out of that particular situation, but even if she did and won in the end, we really got no feel for Bolvar's power (not to mention the army at his command), so a bit of a bigger struggle would have been nice and this piece really showcases that. As you'd imagine the image is very popular on the WoW reddit and it would be nice if Blizzard took note of the, ahem, one-note direction some of the story elements are going. Sure, they have to set up the Shadowlands expansion somehow and cinematics can't last 10+ minutes, but just making things happen because they need to for the plot to progress is really bottom-of-the-barrel storytelling and hopefully the next expansion will be above that.
      Here's the cinematic itself, to remind us of how it actually went:
      Also, let's take a look at a few other impressive art pieces from Kirill Stepanov:

      "Survivors"

      "Start of Battle for Azeroth"

      "The Lord of the Infinite"

      We have an upcoming fix for the new Spirit of Preservation essence on the 8.3 PTRand how it interacts with Mistweaver Monks' Vivify. Apparently the way it affects all healing from Vivify, both primary and other targets of the spell, has been changed to only affect the primary target, as was originally intended and as it works with other similar spells. The change will arrive in an upcoming PTR build.

      Mistweavers are also receiving additional changes with 8,3 which you can find in our coverage of all the class changes for the patch.
      Mistweaver (source)
      As a note for Mistweaver monks, a bug was recently fixed with regards to Spirit of Preservation ’s minor Essence effect and how it interacts with Vivify .
      Prior to this bug fix, both the increased healing amount and critical strike chance from the minor Essence applied to all healing effects of Vivify, not just the primary target healing. This wasn’t intended. The essence should only be affecting the primary Vivify target’s healing value and crit chance, similar to how it works with something like Flash Heal or Healing Surge . A future PTR build should have this bug fix in it.

      In this week's 8.3 Build 32805, Blizzard has updated Death Knight eyes with Lich King style smoke.
      Blizzard has updated the Death Knight eye glow multiple times throughout 8.3 testing. Below is a comparison of the last two PTR versions and the one we currently have live on 8.2.5 retail.

      Thanks to reddit user Malevolent_Vengeance for the screenshot.
      In this week's 8.3 PTR patch, the latest version comes with smoke coming off of their eyes.

      Patch 8.3.0 Build 32805
      All races can become Death Knights in Visions of N'Zoth and there will be a new starting experience for the class which involves Bolvar. If you want to create an Allied Race or Pandaren Death Knight in Visions of N'Zoth, you must pre-order WoW Shadowlands.

      In Patch 8.3, any tanking specialization or a Druid of any spec with Bear Form active will have a flat +50% threat modifier applied to them when they unlock the Major Slot on their Heart of Azeroth. Changing specs to non-tank specs or leaving Bear Form will remove the threat modifier.
      Up to now, tank specializations received bonus threat for each slot they had unlocked on their Heart of Azeroth. This is changing in Visions of N'Zoth and you'll receive +50% threat once you've unlocked the Major Slot.
      A player with Heart of Azeroth level 70 should have roughly the same amount of total threat modifiers before and after Patch 8.3 goes live.
      Let's hope the threat modifier will be baseline for all tank specs in WoW Shadowlands.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We made a change via hotfix a few months ago to grant Tank specialization characters bonus threat for each slot they had unlocked on their Heart of Azeroth. In the Visions of N’Zoth update, we have changed this slightly.
      In Visions of N’Zoth, once you have unlocked the Major Slot, if you are any tanking specialization or a druid of any specialization with Bear Form active, you will just have a +50% threat modifier applied to you. Changing specializations to a non-tank specialization or leaving Bear Form will remove this threat modifier.
      There is no longer any bonus threat for each unlocked slot, you just get a sizable threat bump from the start. This should help reduce some issues where tanks with different Heart of Azeroth levels and slot unlocks were having difficulties with threat between each other.
      edit: This threat modifier should be multiplicative, not additive. A player currently at Heart of Azeroth level 70 with all slots unlocked should have roughly the same amount of total threat modifiers before and after the Visions of N’Zoth update hits.
