http://www.totemspot.com/vb/showthread.php?t=6844 is also a rather in depth guide to Enhance by Purge (Dread - Korgath) that has a full BiS list if anyone is curious.
Great guide here! Nice little refresher and cleared up a couple of questions I had. I didn't realize using FET was something to do now along with Stormlash Totem. Doesn't feel like our priority queue has changed up too much... so I'm not sure why my numbers aren't up there. I'm still not seeing the numbers that everyone else is. (Which is really starting to bother me since I've been playing Enh since BC.)

I have been away from the Enhancement world for a while so forgive my ignorance but dude, when did Haste become as good as Mastery for us? o.O

I'd also like to point out that while it's a good general rule of thumb to rate Mastery and Haste equal to each other, if you truly want to min/max you should sim your gear and find where your breaking points are based on the current average ilevel you're at (there will become a point in gearing when mastery will start to get ahead of haste).
A word of warning to any Enhancement that is currently getting good amounts of raid gear and not simming: Crit is currently by far my second best stat, far outstripping haste at this point (although Haste is still much improved from where it was.)
So make sure to sim things for yourself as you progress otherwise you could be way off.
I have echo if the elements and unleashed fury currently at 485 ilevel
edit: latest sim result - crit=haste=mastery

Hey guys I got a few questions.
- According to elitejerks and this guide right here, Master = Haste. I've been stacking mastery, mostly because I did so in Cata. And also when you use Anscendance your autoattacks becomes pure nature damage. But when you're starting to get 489 gear, what's best? Stacking Mastery or Haste?
- What's best for the highest dps... using Searing Totem all the time, or pop Fire Elemental when it's off cooldown?
As for highest dps usage of fire totems - as noted in this guide FET now is a usable CD for enh shamans to use because it continues to stack Searing Flames when it melees (in past expansions it wasn't worth it to use because it was a net dps loss in most situations). Because of this you'll be wanting to use it virtually on CD in most situations - especially if you glyph FET so that you have it up more often (but for less time). If it's unglyphed try to line it up with other CDs/Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp.
Sorry that it took me a couple days to get back to you, was busy.
My secondary stats have been changing a fair amount from gearing up also.
At around 486 ilvl I was getting Mastery > Haste > Crit, however now at 490 ilvl I am getting Haste > Mastery > Crit. This is with Echo / UF talents of course.
Just curious about this but when I have to choose between "Elemental Mastery" and "Echo of the Elements", I chose Elemental Mastery for the haste bonus while wolves/blood fury/Ascendance are used. Now my Question is this: If I choose "Echo of the Elements, what constitutes as a spell with ENH? Do LL and SS? OR is it only FS, ES, and LB? I have been trying to find a solid answer but have found nothing yet.
I've not read this nowhere but i'm fairly certain i've seen ES "overloading" in my combat text.
