Working on H Vizier, I get to stay on the attenuation platform. Am I crazy for having so much fun with it? Like, I really enjoy this fight even though were !@#$ing up converts/p2s.

yes

Judging by the things you have found fun this tier, I would think you'd also enjoy getting root canal surgery.

Ok, I need Enh friendz halp:

LFR Bottle of Infinite Stars vs Windswept Pages and Flashing Steel Talisman. I don't have either 463 trinket upgraded because I gotz no JP to do that right now. Thoughts? I'm thinking Bottle + Talisman because I can time Talisman with every Ascendance and FE if glyphed, but I really don't know how 2 Enh :x

Other questionssss:

I'm still unsure as to when to use Stormlash in my opening of a fight. I usually use a macro to pop racial + Talisman + Fire Ele, then start UE and the standard rotation. I'm still unsure if I should put down Stormlash right after FE, and when to pop Ascendance. Right now, I'm usually putting down Stormlash after UE and popping Ascendance after my first SS to follow with a Stormblast.

Oh, and for subsequent Stormlashes in a fight, should I use them right away (assuming no "IMMA GO SUPER UNTOUCHABLE MODE" boss phase soon) or wait for Ascendance to be back up.

Yes, I suck at Enh. :x

My guess would actually be Windswept and Bottle because of the passive agi. Not sure how the timing may be for Ascendance with Windswept, though. Only other choice would be Talisman Bottle because of the good alignment and you not being an Engineer. I'd sim it just to make sure.

For me I use Fire Ele, and Wolves when moving in and right at the boss, use Stormstrike -> Ascendance Stormblast, and follow up with Unleash -> Lava Lash -> Flame Shock. At this point I almost always have a Lightning Bolt about to go off; if I have enough charges, cast it and then drop Stormlash. If not enough, Stormlash and then cast when you have enough charges. You should almost always be able to fit it in perfectly there.

It really all comes down to the management of your cooldowns. If you don't really have an important need for Stormlash coming up soon and you can use it an extra time if you drop it on cooldown, drop it on cooldown.

In terms of waiting on Ascendance, I don't really think unless you were in a situation where you will be blowing more CDs like Lust/second agi prepot that it would be worth holding off at all. If Stormlash doesn't proc off of Lightning Shield, it might actually be less of an increase and more of a potential loss due to Static Shock from UF not proccing off of Wind Lash--leaving you to receiving procs during Ascendance from Windfury vs. Windfury + our auto attacks.
