Earthquake placement in single target rotation...

3 posts in this topic

I've been glossing over Icy Veins for a lot of incoming information regarding rotation changes and such, but I keep noticing Earthquake listed in the single target rotation. Are things in such a state for elemental that Earthquake is worth casting on even a single target? Is there an actual DPS gain in doing so compared to just simply ignoring it for a single target?

Hi Utherdicia. what's up?

 

I was confusing with the single target rotation, once i was forced to lose 2 seconds casting earthquake and not seeing a gain in DPS. I've simulated my character some times in simcraft app and i build a rotation using their action list. 

I use Earthquake only when have three or more targets, after casted chain lightning 2-4 times do proc Enhanced Chain Lightning.

That's about what I figured. I did multiple live tests myself and noted a bit of a loss using Earthquake single target, at least a 1K DPS loss to be exact. Thanks for your reply.

      The updated Icefury build suggests that Totem Mastery is taken.  However, nowhere in the priority whatsoever is it used.  It is, however, used in the Ascendance build.
      That being said, why would you pass on two talents of which you will actually include in your priority to take a talent for an ability you will not?  Or is there any error in the priority?  Is it worth casting?  And where at in the priority?
      Thank you.

      Hi all,
      i started again since WOTLK to play again my shaman , i leveled up as an elemental since i was always played elemental in the past.
      I tested the enchanement a bit , and i like him BUT i dont have in mind to raid except LFR ofc and some heroic dungeons and of course WQ's and grind.
      So i am thinking which spec has better survivability i cannot decide , some times ele doing better some times enha going faster vice versa :/
      I know that as a casual player now i have to play what is more fun for me BUT with the artifact AP to the weapons ( i have both to lvl 13 but now the AP is going bigger) its not so easy so i have to decide at least which spec to level up the weapon first so an opinion could help me decide.
      All i need is fast grind,good dps in dungeons and easy playing with good survivability .
      Thank you all for your replies :)

      I have three trinkets to choose from, Two from Mythic EN, Heightened Senses @ 880, Vial of Nightmare Fog @ 880, and finally from Nightbane Kara i have the Ethereal Urn @875. If any other experienced resto shamans could weigh in and help me make a decision it would be appreciated.
