Ele PVP Dreadful gear?

I'm putting together an HP set. I've seen that it's recommended to grab 2 pieces of gear from the Wartide/ringmail sets - gloves & chest. The rest would be Thunderfist/mail.

I accidentally grabbed the Thunderfist gloves instead of the gloves for the 2-piece Wartide bonus. What would you suggest I do? Should I still grab the chest & other pieces as normal, or replace the gloves with the Wartide ones?

Thanks in advance... hope I made sense. *wink*

I forgot to mention that I am past the sell-back time. Thus my dilemma. :-/

But people really think 3 seconds off grounding are better than 23 seconds off thunderstorm?

The Thunderstorm 50% is just so invaluable.

Sure you can get a few seconds off grounding totem, but that is only against a caster. And in that same situation if you can reach them you could used Thunderstorm as an interrupt.

So I do not agree with whatever guide you thought you needed to read to be an Elemental Shaman.

I believe that you have made the correct choice by accident and you should go with what the spirits are telling you.

I do agree 100% with this. I use Thunderstorm *all* of the time.

So thank you all for replying. I'm sticking with them. :-)

(Please bear with me, I have played Resto in almost always 2 trees for the past 2 years - so ele is a new - and exciting - adventure!)

Depending on what you pvp you can glyp the thunderstorm and bring it down to 17.5 seconds. Its useful for heavy traffic in battlegrounds for and defending towers. In arenas i dump the glyph and use the glyph of purge(until patch 5.2) even at 17.5 seconds arenas dont last long enough to get the benefit as you do in Bg's. However if you use the Ringmail for the 3 sec cd youll still get pwned by a mage if you dont get a hex off before he silences you. Youll also have to forge off the spirit into haste or mastery depending on your preference as you will be well over the hit cap. Since they nerfed the ele self healing its really pointless to wear ringmail gear.Until patch 5.2 when shamans get some love, it does not really matter what combo of gear you wear. I believe once you get self healing from Flameshock youll want the natural ele gear. I think FS still scales with SP.
