    Yay Enhancement Buffs

    Hopefully those datamine stuff is actually happening, Buffs to Stormstrike (including Stormlash), Lava Lash, Windfury, Mental Quickness. Heres hoping its true.

    Yeah very excited to see the buffs coming, all pretty significant too.

    Windfury thing is a tooltip fix (from PTR, I guess, since it correctly says 3 on live). The rest *should* be actual buffs (assuming they go live on the PTR servers).

    In addition it seems they are changing Searing Totem AI to have no delay between casts

    I'm excited when i saw this, but i feel enh is fine on single target (pve) and a buff is not really needed. This is probably a pvp related buff and they might find somewhere to nerf for pve to balance out the buff.

    I really hope they work on our AOE...if they dont, maybe the buff is actually needed to compensate our shit aoe

    Totems are also reverted back to 5 health?

    Live Stormstrike is definitely 375% (not 450%), lava lash is 250% (not 300%), and mental quickness is 55% AP -> SP (not 65%). Assuming those actually go live on the PTR, they are buffs, not tooltip fixes.

    Elemental is also performing better than enhancement for heroic ToT (noticeably so on a few key fights, like durumu).

    Only because of enha crappy aoe, buffing their single target dps seems like a step in the wrong direction to me as I'd better have a balanced spec instead of a single target focussed one (but elem is a aoe focussed one so who knows what blizz is thinking).

    I'm VERY excited about this. Just picked up my enh shaman again after feeling played out on my monk... SO pumped to see these buffs. I miss Lava Lash hitting like an 18 wheeler!

    This is kinda how I feel. Certainly, I'm not going to complain about the single target boost but I was really hoping for some AE/cleave love.

    The mental quickness change is a larger buff to aoe/cleave (100% affected by sp) than it is to single target.

    The passive version was too good, would've felt mandatory to have. Which of course for glyphs isn't what they want.

    Whoa....awesome buffs, hope they make it into the game. We definitely needed them for Enhance, will bring us up in the charts cause logs show us being low. Lil confused by WF, is that a tooltip fix? Cause it already says 3.....but looks like SS and LL are buffs. I wouldn't mind if they spread some of the damage out of SS/LL and into ULE.


    But it sucks they reverted the totem HP buffs.....those were long overdue, they should have made all totems 30sec or less at 5% HP, and everything more then 30sec at 10% HP. I hope this is some mistake.
