    Elemental 4p...dissapointing?

    So i just got my 4 set tonight and decided to go test out the proc rate/dmg. The elemental is ranged and seems to be hiting for 75k crit with the fulmi debuff which is nice. But in like a min+ of spamming CL on 3 dummys i've had 2 elemental's spawn. Which was 3.7% of my dmg under my legen cloak that was at 8.1%. Anyone else had this feeling?

    The Elemental has the same chance to spawn regardless of LB or CL. Also the Elemental itself has an ICD. It would get out of hand if the opposite was true for single target purposes (but would translate better w/ AoE in which 4pc is Abysmal).

    60 seconds. It does scale with gear though which is nice atleast so it will help out with some single target. Mine did about 3-4 mill depending on the length of the fight.

    3.7% is actually quite good for a set bonus. Most set bonuses give around 2-3% for 2 piece abd another 2-3% for 4 piece. So while it may be a boring set bonus the damage seems in line of what you should expect

    i personally cant wait to get my hands on t-16, t-15 is great, but im slightly getting to much mastery and haste for it and i won't be able to line up bloodfury with ascendance, wich is annoying at some point.

    My 4p set bonus does 2,5 - 3,0% dps .

    Yeah, 3% is about on par for a tier bonus. Especially in a tier were many of the bonuses really are underhwelming (resto shaman 4 pc, for example).

    if you're using CL for a good portion of any fight you should probably revert to a T15 2pc anyway. T16 4pc is all about the single target.

    Yeah I still swap back to 2 pce T15 for Galakras since that extra lightning strike can add a decent amount of AOE.

    I just dropped my 4 piece T15 and also 2 piece T15 for the 2 piece T6.
    Even though I got other upgrades as well, my DPS kind of fell like a stone from a skyscraper.
    I'm not kidding ..

    Unless your in cutting edge group I would drop t15 early just so you get use to 3 min line ups again.
