Now that heroic raids are opening up, any plans on updating the BiS trinket list?
totemspot) but Endus hasn't updated the changes across yet.
Would appreciate if you could tell me if there's anything I should correct, first real raid for my shaman tonight.
Also, chain lightning is still a dps increase on two targets right? Should I drop chain lightning glyph and glyph telluric currents instead, for Stone Guard 10N?
Other than that, you seem to be ready
btw is it only me who thinks that our t14 2 and 4p bonis are crap compared to the other classes bonis... 1k and 2,4k dps ... @ 100k dps this is nothing p.e. dk 2p is better than our 2+4p together...
Hey everyone, silly questions as I recently swapped from rogue to shaman. I just obtained the DMC today. Prior to it I was running alchy stone/flashfrozen globule. I was curious if I could get a link to the site that you guys use to sim new gear for upgrades.
edit: I know of askmrrobot, and it gives me a "score" which shows the best combo as DMC card + alchy stone, but I don't know how a score works vs an actual sim considering I can use the globule in junction with ascendance almost every time.

I would appreciate if I could get some advice on handling Elegon sparks... in general I have a pretty easy time with them but sometimes if I don't get any Lava Surge proccs I feel a bit screwed. I'm trying to keep up flame shock on the boss for a somewhat reliable procc generation but as you get to the later waves (4-5) the shock cd can feel too damn long, haha. I actually moved Unleash Elements back to my bars for this since it might be able to finish off a 1% hp spark... tried Thunderstorm on a very low hp spark when I didn't have the time for a cast time spell. Wasn't enough and then we had a 1% wipe. Sigh.
The tooltip of Telluric Currents doesn`t refer to the use of chain lightning, but just only to the use of lightning bolt
Don't forget the other minor details, such as having a searing totem up (and possibly an earth elemental). If other people need help with theirs and your dps in P1 is fine - use stormlash on the last set.
Healing with different classes since Vanilla
(Assuming BIS gear)
Elemental 2+4 set: 3800dps
Warlock Afflic 2+4 set: 4900dps
Moonkin 2+4 set: 4900dps
Rogue Ass/Comb 2+4 set: 4700dps
Haven't seen other class bonus gains yet but so far we are just about 1k behind the others I have seen.
Give me some advice on my best upgrade. I've got about 1800 VP and I can buy whatever. I'll have the klaxxi exalted ring this week. I'm not allowed to post links yet, but I'm Axon on Blackrock.
I'm thinking trinket, neck, or belt...maybe even helm. I've got waterburst helm, a blue neck, and that POS DPS trinket from direbrew.

Endus, so you say in your guide that the stat priority is much closer and that we should not focus all reforges to haste. That we should balance the stats out. I simed my character on simcraft and it says Haste -> Mastery -> Crit. So why would you not get as much Haste as you can then as much Mastery as you can and the least Crit as we can have?
I currently use Echo of the Elements and Elemental Blast as my 2 T4/T6 talents. I've noticed that all the fights so far seem to favor those talents, have you encountered any fights where other talents win out?
Also do you think they'll fix the T13 Resto prepull trick anytime soon? I'm wondering if I should take the time to farm it since my guild's other Ele shaman believes its essentially an extra hero for us.
With the Mage bonus EVERYONE already had the 4p bonus so they had to nerf it because so many people would use it, with ours most don't even have it (deleted it/never collected it) and those that do have it many don't bother using it. Because of this its not really come to the forefront of people's attentions and thus I doubt the devs will put time into changing it. It will almost certainly be fixed before 5.2 though I'd think. Worth grabbing though if your like 1 piece away and your guildies are willing to go with you to blow up Dragon Soul. Just remember that if you're an engineer don't use the gloves as one of the pieces of gear you switch as you will put the glove enchant on cooldown for 30 (?) seconds after putting them back on.
