Quick question, and pretty simply really:
Should Elemental Blast be baseline for Elemental?
I’m one of those people who think Elemental has the best caster rotation in the game. Two maintenance buffs, a proc-enhanced nuke, a timed rotational cast and a filler is as convoluted as a rotation really needs to be, and it feels fun when Lava Surge procs and you can fire off your Earth Shock. Yes, there are a couple of niggles (shock conflicts chief among them) but Elemental is an extremely well-designed spec.
But part of this is Elemental Blast, and instead of trying to “make it work” for Restoration and Enhancement, I’d rather they simply made it baseline for casters and designed a brand new talent in its slot. As great a spell as it is, it appears to stand out as a “terrible” talent because two specs rarely, if ever, pick it up (and even Elemental is starting to leave it behind).
So, poll time – what do you guys think?
