    Right on, pretty simple stuff. I always thought Ele is a relatively easy rotation but my previous machine had so much lag that I would miss LvB and Fulmination procs and end up casting extra LBs in their place. Enha worked just fine though what with its basically not using any casts, all just instant damage buttons.

    Anyway, I'll check out the addons you suggested, and thanks.

    Hello,

    I was scrolling through the pre-raid bis lists and saw now Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest. Can I conclude that the proc doesn't outweigh the pure increase in spellpower and other stats you get from upgrading to a 463+?

    As I understand it, the Proc chance goes down as you level up. So yeah, all the new gear is better now.

    Casting Elemental Blast before and during CL spam - is it dps loss or not? It feels like it is on packs with high hp pool but I would like to be sure before I start to do that on first week of raid.
    Also on gearing - enchants section, I don't see gloves enchant listed.

    Just a note, conductivity also works with elemental blast, but the tooltip only lets you know this if you have elemental blast as a talent.

    So would it be much of a DPS gain to make a Macros like this:

    /stopcasting
    /Cast Lava Burst

    For those Lava Surge procs that happen while I am mid Lightening Bolt cast?

    Actually, let me ask this question a different way, a bit more to the point. Is it a DPS gain to stop a LB cast in order to fire off an instant LvB?

    No. Stopcasting is never a DPS increase.

    I've seen a lot of ele shamans using ele blast, I was sure that primal elementalist was better?

    How viable is Headmaster's Will compared to one-hand + offhand 463 ilvl?

    Been wondering about this too, but then again, I play an orc.

    Check 1H + OH and compare the stats? Not a hard job.

    I was planning on going Prime Elementalist just for the sake of keeping my simple rotation.

    Is Elemental Blast really pulling ahead though?

    To quote the guide:

Of the remaining two, Elemental Blast is ahead of Primal Elementalist by 2-3% in an ideal test, however it does complicate the rotation a bit whereas Primal Elementalist is easier to use and works better on encounters with burn phases.

    In short, it will come down to personal preference between Elemental Blast & Primal Elementalist.

    So, has the brewfest trinket been considered when determining the BiS pre-raid gear?

    No, although the current release of SimCraft doesn't handle the proc (it does in the SVN, so when a new build is run I'll be able to publish the trinket lists I'm working on)

    Any thoughts on Light of the Cosmos?

    I personally don't like brewfest trinket due to its low-ish proc chance and short buff duration. Will replace it right when darkmoon is out.

    The other trinket I use is Zen Alchemist Stone, which is pretty overpowered for ilvl 450 trinket. Internal cooldown 55s and high proc chance make easy 25%+ uptime (or 1000+ intellect).

    Please define "thoughts", or see the previous post to yours where I mention that proper trinket lists are not possible yet.
