Sentry Totem: The new community news and advice site!
Hey guys, was wondering if any of you awesome shamans are doing the PTR at all? If so, i really need help, i cant decide what class is preforming better (Balance Druid or Ele Shaman) As i want to main one of them in MoP.
Does anyone have any good logs on dps atm on the PTR ? Any WoL or anything? Really intrested in Elemental shaman changes/ect.
I'm wondering how my DPS holds up, since I've only recently switched to playing Elemental. Here's my Shaman: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...hggra/advanced I can get upwards of 24k on a dummy self-buffed doing a 5-minute test with Fire Elemental somewhere in there, and about 33k on Ultraxion. Are my numbers alright for my gear? I feel like my DPS fluctuates too much. There have been times where I just couldn't even break 20k.

A scenario I'm not sure what to do in...
I currently have the 4 set tier bonus for ele. When I am popping Elemental Mastery, am I still supposed to cast Earth Shock with 7-9 charges? I honestly don't know if it would be a direct dps increase, as I receive additional mastery/haste from casting Lightning Bolts/Lava bursts.
EM doesn't significantly change the rotation; given our Haste levels and that we will try and combine it with Bloodlust/hero, the damage bonus is the bigger deal currently, so yes, you still use ES.
This all may change a bit when the MoP pre-patch hits and EM becomes a class talent with a pure Haste boost, however.
Is UE still out of our rotation in MoP?
I'm using the Unleashed Lightning glyph, and I've found that as a result I can't do my normal cancel method (jump/move) to stop casting Lightning Bolt in order to cast Lava Burst when it procs as a free cast. I know how to fix my Wind Shear by using a /stopcasting macro, but I'm concerned about doing the same with Lava Burst as I can easily see myself hitting Lava Burst when it's off CD a second too early and cancelling the Lightning Bolt that I wanted to complete. Is there another alternative?
Or is this not an issue because I'm only dealing with quest mobs and once I'm actually wailing on bosses there's no point in cancelling a Lightning Bolt for Lava Burst proc because there'll be enough time to cast it when the Lightning Bolt is finished casting?
Garth Brooks convinced me it's not living if I stand outside the fire
LvB also have the glowing edge now when off CD?
Has anyone tried to play without Unleash Lightning glyph? It doesn't even feel like the same class
has anyone compared the draenei racial to the panda racial? and how much of a difference it is?
