I think Elemental Force is better ;)

Elemental force is a 5ppm on damaging spells (both periodic and non-periodic as of 5.0.5). It hits for ~3k. So, this makes 15k damage per minute (250dps) theoretically. This has a pretty high proc rate, so let's say in practice ~200dps.

Windsong is 1ppm but also each proc is seperate (ie the haste/crit/mastery procs are not on the same 1ppm limitation, you effectively get 3ppm, but different buffs each time). In other words, for 2/5 (40%) of the fight you could theoretically have one of these buffs on. More likely to be ~25% of the fight per buff. (12 sec, 1 minute internal cooldown, not a huge proc rate, but you have a lot of DoTs/casts).

Windsong DPS boost is a bit harder to calculate but for a fire mage 1500 crit is godly - 2.5% crit. Haste gives you ~3.5% haste. Mastery gives you ~3%.

Now really only Crit and Haste of those are super good for a fire mage but mastery will give you a bit of power too. As for the DPS increase, well that depends on your other gear as to how much the crit/haste/mastery boost will benefit you. I personally feel that Windsong (especially at a higher gear set) will do a lot more for you than Elemental Force. I would love to see some actual simulations of formulaic proof either way, maybe a project for next week...

EDIT: Something else to keep in mind is that Windsong procs can overlap with trinkets/heroism/beserking/etc/etc/etc to multiply its effect. Elemental force is a flat damage proc. Everyone knows that stacking cooldowns results in the highest boost to effect, and the same is true for procs like windsong. If you get a proc while you have a bunch of other spell power/haste/etc cooldowns up you can get a pretty sick burst for 10+seconds.

Any clue if power torrent is any decent still? I have a ton of mats to make them and am not very satisfied with these enchants.

edit: I hear PT is better for locks right now. I need to look into this a little, it might just be cause of dem pets

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding and for us to be able to do that we need some more people to fill the gaps. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. But we are also interested in any dps class with a good healing offspec. Even though your class isn't listed below, don't be afraid of getting in contact with us.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - Open
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
      Contact us:

      Passive#2900, Malenky (ingame)
