My guild has been working heavily on heroic Horridon. We are getting somewhat close, but just aren't succeeding and the overall consensus of the group is that I am to blame. Now, I am an enhancement shaman by trade, I've been Enhancement since the day I rolled this character, but I was told to go Elemental for this fight. I do not like Elemental. I do not like being ranged, and I do not find the spec fun or interesting in the least. But, I want my guild to succeed so I have been trying as hard as I can.
I run LFR as Elemental, I do everything I can as Elemental. I've read the guide over and over, I know the rotation, this is not the problem. My damage on Horridon from start to finish just blows. I cannot increase it. I pre-pot, I open up with burst, I try to use my cool downs on time, I constantly spam chain lighting, I try my best to earth shock when I need to. It just isn't getting better, and I am going crazy with the constant "You're holding us back" talks that I am getting.
Managing my Direhorn has been HELL FOR ME. I pretty much feel like I spend the entirety of the fight trying to not die to the Direhorn, which hurts my DPS. Some things I've tried to alleviate this:
- Focus Dire Horn + Focus Macro to hit him (It was originally Unleash Elements, but learned today that I can use Purge apparently, so I switched it to Purge)
- Flame Shock him + Try to Project a Searing Totem behind him, but this is extremely unreliable
- I am aware that Wind Shear should also help
But it just feels horrifically uncomfortable still.
I am at a loss at this point. I've watched PoV videos as elemental, I have Elementarist...This fight is going to be the death of my guild if I don't find a way to pick it up.
^This is my Armory
^This is today's logs from Horridon attempts
^This is from Tuesday with some more Horridon attempts
Please, if someone can help me, I'd be really grateful.
