I just made a bunch of updates to the OP - I was out of touch for a bit due to the holidays and illness (finally better). Thanks to everyone who has been active in helping people in the thread on points that I wasn't clear or didn't include in the OP.
Two things I added that I feel are worth pointing out where Opening Fight Sequences and a link for an addon called Enhancement Technique, which is basically a replacement for Shock and Awe (from what I've been told, only just heard about it, and I never used Shock and Awe so I can't compare really).
I'm trying to eek out every last bit of DPS I can in my guild's run to completing 5.1 before 5.2 comes out.
I've been looking at the Simcraft and Noxxic, and it appears as though I'm getting my damage in a single boss fight from different sources than what I should be getting it from.
LL, FS, LS, Melee are my top four all around 11.5%
Now I know for a fact I'm not perfect in my rotation delivery (human afterall) is this typically what I should be seeing as my top 4 sources?
Also curious...how many Stormblasts are people getting in a typical Accendance? I can get 2 with the third appearing like its 2s (more like 1.75s) away. Would going for more Haste over mastery to a "3rd Blast" be advisable? (I ask as it appears to be our highest DpET

As for stormblasts, you should fit 2 into the Ascendance rotation.
Can someobody clear of the enh priority/rotation for me? I am a bit confused. I am using EotE/UF
I just want to know how many ES i should be using inbetween FS considering i have UF and it is not glyphed.
Without the glyph I think I remember it's a pretty solid FS - ES - FS - ES rotation. However they are increasing the flame shock duration to that of FS with the glyph in 5.2 I think, in which case it is *usually* FS followed by two ES rng willing.
I am one of two competitive Enhancement Shamans in my guild's 25m raid group. Since we're getting into heroic content and all normal content is on farm, I'm looking to eke out as much damage as I can and min/max to the best of my ability for those heroic encounters.
Trinket-wise, I'm currently using Bottle of Infinite Stars (normal) and Terror in the Mists (normal), but I do have the Relic of Xuen. All three trinkets are fully upgraded (2/2).
From what I've been told, Bottle of Infinite Stars beats both Terror in the Mists and Relic of Xuen. Terror and Relic, however, are extremely comparable. I have read that Relic's dependence on Crit (which is currently my least-favorable stat, thanks to gearing/sims) makes Terror somewhat more desirable due to Terror being activated by both Crits and non-Crits. My dilemma boils down to this: Would I rather have static Agility with a Crit-triggered Agility proc or static Agility with a hit-triggered Crit proc?
I'm so confused, I'm caught in a glass case of dafuq. :<

IMO the sims will always give you the best answer, but my gut tells me that Bottle of Stars and Relic will be best
For me personally, Terror was about a 500 dps upgrade of Relic of Xuen. This was back when I was maybe like 499 - 503 ilvl. Personally I'd go with the Terror in the Mists. Both myself and the Hunters in my guild had noticed that we could potentially not get a proc for up to a minute, which was really rough during progression. Most of us ended up using Terror in the Mists because it's more reliant than Relic.
I simmed it, showed me that Terror/Bottle gives about 400 more DPS than Bottle/Relic.
I'm looking for a bit of advice. How great is the 2pc bonus. I picked up the chest off of lfr, and I'm unsure if losing the stats from what I currently have is better. Vakgar of Medivh is my toon.
What if they took Lighting Bolt off the GCD? You know, kinda like Heroic Strike but work it into the MW buff so that it isn't OP.
I personally thinking that it would make MW stacks (especially with the future Tier bonus) and the whole rotation so much smoother.
