So our 10 man raid is working on Protectors of the Endless HC and I'm looking how to improve my Elemental DPS. I always assumed that people using Chain Lightning on this fight did it for epeen only, but seeing that it's also used on HC made me rethink.
Since the protectors heal up when one of them dies the cleave damage is pointless. So what's left are more Lightning Shield stacks and additional damage through EotE and Elemental Overload. I guess the latter is the important one, when one of them proccs on a secondary target and jumps back to the focussed target it should do more damage than a Lightning Bolt.
Is this correct, i.e. should Chain Lightning be used because of this in this fight (is it actually viable?), or am I missing something else?
