I've started on what will become a series of Elemental Shaman guides, and I would really like some feedback on the two videos I've made so far before I spend countless of hours on the rest of the guides.. Your feedback might mean I need to change some stuff around (like using my blond GF as a voiceover instead of myself), and that's a lot easier to do before the actual video has been made and uploaded.
The idea behind my series, is that it should work as a step-by-step learning curve for Elemental Shamans. Im not trying to teach players how to play at elite level from day one (nor saying I am an elite player), but Im trying to guide them through what I think is needed to go from being an average (or new) Ele Shaman who knows the basic stuff to be a good/excellent Ele Shaman (defined as: Occasionally getting top 200 WoL rankings, or generally being above the 85-95% treshhold according to Epeen bot on raidbots.com). The first two videos are ofcouse the most basic stuff my video will cover, the videos coming from here on will be slightly more advanced for each step..
With that in mind, here are the current plan and videos:
Elemental Shaman Rotation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_J1wADt1uA (feedback wanted!)
Elemental Shaman Opening Rotation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdZyrIDKTaI (feedback wanted!)
Elemental Guides to come (in exact order):
- Cooldown management
- Tips to increase your dps (general pointers such as ABC, planning ahead)
- Gearing & spec guide for Elemental
- How to use Simcraft
- Setting up your UI for optimal damage
- How to analyze your performance with WoL (including how to setup WoL)
Other future content on the channel:
- PvP videos (BGs only - random and RBG)
- Boss specific guides with Elemental pov (how to optimize your dps for this specific boss)
- Boss mechanic specific guides (how to dodge attenuation heroic f.x.)
That's the plan so far at least.. If you think I've missed anything please let me know that as well... But first and foremost I could really use some feedback on the first two videos
(About me - short):
Played Elemental Shaman for roughy 5 years. Playing on a RP server (Moonglade) in a PVE/RP guild called Ebon Flame. Bunch of friends raiding 2-3 times a week. We're not clearing content, but we are seing a fair bit of the heroic content while it's current tier. Some tiers we also get to finish the meta before the next patch hits. Reguarly doing top200 WoL entries (in normal modes) without sacrificing my job in the raid (knockback adds, stun adds, etc) and without full herioc gear. I dont consider myself an elite player at all, but I consider my dps to be fairly good given the circumstances.
