Sample size is too small. You may be right, or you may not. That doesn't prove anything one way or the other.
Heroics often emphasize different niches than normals, but I doubt elemental's cleave is enough to catapult elemental from, again, not just "low" but dead last all the way up to the middle of the pack. But I can't prove that, it's just my guess. The data just isn't available yet.
It's like you're unaware that elemental received a straight damage buff on 5.2 release pushing them farther up the competitive ladder. That may not have been enough by itself, but with the removal of the CL damage reduction jump, and the fact that elemental is a great AoE/cleave caster (even before that removal), and all the fights in ToT basically have that component it's not hard to realize that elemental is in a pretty good spot for this tier. Maybe not the king of the tier, but anyone who says elemental can't compete is wrong.
They were used last tier even though they weren't very strong, and then they got straight buffed and almost all the fights favor them in this tier so to think that they can't be used effectively now is an absolutely retarded thought process.
