Not sure whether to be happy or sad on that blue post about Elemental Shamans Lava burst and what not.
That's an impressive sale, 50% off ! I know a few people that will be awfully tempted back... the costs of these expansions (with the subscription fee and time commitments) is just too high for some. These discounts make that barrier a lot easier to overcome.

I haven't seen anything posted on bonus roll charms coming from pet battles. Anyone on the ptr know what the drop rate is like? Do you get a fixed amount for every pet battle daily or is it a random chance? And how many lessers do you get? I'd assume 5 per tamer.
Ugh, more world PvP garbage.
*dies*We are changing the way Lava Burst interacts with Flame Shock. Currently, Flame Shock is required for Lava Burst to crit. This is cool rotationally but creates problems where Flame Shock dispels or swapping targets is a massive nerf to Elemental, dropping their 2.5 multiplier on Lava Burst to a 1.0. We are going to nerf Lava Burst damage, cause it to always crit (like Chaos Bolt), and then cause it to do say 50% more damage to targets afflicted by Flame Shock. The net result should be that LB + FS is still the best DPS, but failing to do so will be a 1.5 to 1.0 drop instead of a 2.5 to 1.0 drop.
Elemental's PvE damage will still be lower than we want after this change, but we want to bring up the damage of Lightning Bolt and other sources of damage together; we need to buff more than just Lava Burst to preserve the rotation... and avoid a lot of Lava Burst PvP videos.
Something to finally help in PvP and make target swaps easier in PvE.
With the lava burst change (which is actually a bigger buff than stated since you get a clear-casting proc minus the fact you can't get lucky and crit for full damage), I wonder what the lavaburst glyph will change too?
I never saw Illidan as current content (Not til a few months before WotLK release) and it never felt weird unless the feeling that you've got something to work towards is a weird feeling.
So, now the LvB without FS on the target hits for noting cuz it wont (less likely) be a crit... lets change that, so the LvB will always crit and dealing BS damage, cuz they nerf the dmg, also the opposite team will dispell the FS anyway which will cuz even more dmg loss.
Same problem in a different way. Or even worse.
Neat! Every spec supported for those rep belts except plate dps.
Blizzard : ehy guys, shaman elemental sucked all the 5.1 content so we will be boost it in next raid
players : waaaaa yeah need zomgf imbah tier bonus gogo reroll
2-3 weeks before 5.2=
Blizzard : ehy guys shaman elemental has 2 problems 1)cant change focus in dps because of flame shock buff for lava burst (really?) 2)shaman elemental sucks in pvp because if people dispell flame shock he dont do damage (after 2 years) and we dont need to see more mono-lavaburst pvp video (really? zomg watch mage frost and warrior video before? icelance icelance icelance icelance, 20% life execute 300k damage)
so we decide that lavaburst don crit anymore see it?! we resolved the problem! thats how we spent your money bro
players: ? trolling? it's a buff? it's like saying that arcane mage dont need anymore arcane blast stacks because sucks in pvp and on switch targets, good move!
what about the pvp quests is it just 50 points for all 7 quests or is it 50 per quest
50 total. They aren't going to give you 525 honor, 50 conquest, 16 lesser charms, and 1250 rep x 7 every day, or you would be done in a few days...
