    Enhancement Opener ??

    Hi everyone!

    I was just wondering, whats the correct way to put your cds as an enhancement shaman in a opener fight....

    And also when you are currently in fight, do you wait to fill wolves and ascendance, fire totem?

    or just use them when are out of cd?

    PS: sorry about my bad english

    I could be wrong(I usually raid resto) but I drop fire ele at the 1 sec mark of the pull timer hit unleashed elements and flame shock. Depending on the fight I will either then SS and go into my normal priorities or blow all CDs if there is not a close burn phase to wait for.

    Pre-Pot
    Unleash Elements (with /startattack)
    Blood Fury (orc)
    Flame Shock
    Fire Totem/Elemental
    Stormstrike

    Is a pretty standard opener. Regarding using the cooldowns it depends on the fight. On some fights you want to pull everyting at the start like at Malkorok and then pretty much on every CD. On Nazgrim you want to wait until he's in Berserker stand. On spoils you probably want to use them on the biggest crate. So you kinda gotta learn the fights and find out when its best to use them. On Garrosh its a good idea to use for example Ascendance with AG in transition.

    Going from a run start(running to the boss):

    Pre-pot
    Wolves+FE
    UE
    SS
    Ascendance
    SS
    (MW5 LB if you got)
    FS
    LL and from there.

    If you start next to it, go SS first and then UE.

    You want to have your wolves and FE out when when you are pulling, not to waste GCD's while you're dps'ing.
    Shaman since Vanilla. All the way !

    thanks guys for your advice, I will try to test this way and see how things work out...

    Have a nice day =)

    Remember to use stormstrike right before popping ascendance, since the cooldown resets when using it.

    For the "all in" start I try to do this:
    Pre-kafa (I use a kafa press instead of a pot some times to save money )
    Unleash on the run
    Wolves
    Fire Elemental
    Now that I read the comments here I will SS (didnt know about the CD resetting thanks for that).
    Hero
    Ascend
    Stormlash
    Unleash again.

    It can be a bit overwhelming. Worst part comes when the RL forgets to call for hero and does so 2 seconds after Ascendance wears off. XD

    - running -
    Pre-pot
    Fire Elemental Totem
    Unleash
    Flame Shock
    - arrive at boss -
    Stormstrike
    (5x Maelstrom LB if procced)
    Bloodlust + Stormlash macro
    Ascendance + Racial + Wolves + Elemental Mastery macro
    Stormblast

    alternatively, if you're not running to the boss or you want the ultra fast burst:

    pre-pot
    totem
    Stormstrike
    Bloodlust/Stormlash
    Ascendance Macro
    Stormblast, continue rotation
