Sentry Totem: The new community news and advice site!
hmm I see what you guys mean, very sad though that a Sha touched weapon falls just under another weapon just because of pure ilvl difference. In my case at least I know a lot of my guild members will be seeking the mace which works fine for me since the dagger gives me exactly what I need, more Haste, Mastery, and Spell power.
Thx for the replies
Tiny concern here:
My Shaman (http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...rbury/advanced).
I've checked profiles of similarly geared Shamans and notice they easily have more Mastery and Haste than me. I'm not performing too bad (percentile 80-87 on my recorded fights in 10N), but still my secondary stats feel low.
Is it something that I should be concerned about? Or simply wait for better drops and not give a fig . I hope to see Elegon down soon for the trinket, it's got to happen soon...
This is a great guide!
Just a question: With new trinkets from Shieldwall reputation, does BiS for trinkets changing?
I doubt it, the Shieldwall Reputation trinket is good and will probably rank high on the list but I dont think it will be as good as Relic or EoT HC but given some of us wont see EoT HC for some time I wonder how it would compare to EoT normal.
Im waiting patiently to see if Endus and the others are working on listing that trinket on the trinkets list and how it compares to normal version trinkets like EoT and LoTC hopefully it'll be up there soon :P
So I've been hunting and i just can't seem to find a general dpet/dpct for elemental, anyone know if one is out there or where i may find it?
Any new Infos according the trinket from Operation: Shieldwall?
I have Relic and the LFR-Version of the EoT-Trinket. Would it be worth changing LFR-EoT against this trinket? Should i switch back to EoT if i get a hand on the EoT out of normal version?
Questions over Questions.... Answers?
Got 2 questions:
1. With 4 set bonus would it be better to switch from Elemental Blast to Primal Elementalist since the rate at which we gain 7 charges for Fulmination will be way higher and since ES has priority over EB?
2. Did anyone do the math on the Dominance trinket? Would that trinket be better then EoT? Cause I find that EoT doesn't always proc, even if it's at the start of the fight, when I pop all my shit for Ascendance.
Single Target, Stationary
1. Cast Flame Shock IF the DoT has expired or has 1 tick remaining.
2. IF you have the L90 talent Unleashed Fury, cast Unleash Elements
3. Cast Lava Burst IF it is off cooldown AND Flame Shock is on the target
4. IF you have the L90 talent Elemental Blast, cast Elemental Blast
5. Cast Earth Shock IF Lightning Shield is at 6-7 charges.
I don't see how ES has priority over EB here.
Cheers for the guide. I do have one (Newbie) question.
I've been tinkering a bit with Elemental lately, and after a bit of time at the training dummies, I realised something quite dumb. Your Earth Elemental's Taunt is on auto-cast. I can disable it, obviously, but since it and Fire Elemental use the same pet bar, one of the Fire Elemental's attacks will no longer be on auto-cast if I disable taunt. Is this a product of my bar addon (Bartender4), or general behavior of the bar?
In heroics, a tank getting a group taunted is obviously only a minor annoyance. A boss is more of an annoyance, and.. I assume the taunt doesn't work on raid bosses? Please tell me it doesn't, and how you get around this problem in general, if you use Earth Elemental Totem at all.
Edit: Perhaps this is a problem only if you use PE? I suppose I could just switch to EB, though having tried it, I found it more clunky not being able to move as much due to one more cast-time spell. (I use the LB glyph to allow seamless repositioning)

It shouldn't be an issue, really; the earth elemental taunt doesn't affect raid bosses. In 5-mans, as you said, you neither really need the extra "oomph", and it makes for a nice save if the tank screws up. Soloing, the taunt is useful since it keeps stuff off you.
