WoD Shaman FAQ
T13H @ Lvl 85
T14H @ Lvl 90
Edit: FAQ is now updated for Level 90.
10/10/2012 02:22 AMPosted by Harlaownfatei got better results as a wf fast mh and ft slow oh mainly b/c of unleashed fury wind
Unleash Wind and Stormstrike deal weapon damage, so slow weapons are better. Also fast weapons scale inversely with the 3 second Windfury Weapon internal cooldown. The attack speed buff from Unleash Wind, like Flurry, is weapon speed independent.
You may have seen better results with a fast mainhand, but that was just the random number generator kicking in with a very small sample size.
Level 90 talents: Primal Elementalist is perfectly viable and possibly even better than Fury in a 25 man setting.
Glyph of riptide is listed as mandatory without the t14 4-set? And no mention of the glyph of totemic recall?
The only fight I would consider the glyph of riptide on is Garalon 10 man, and even still it is far from mandatory and really nets no major increase.
Also, while I don't personally disagree with your stat weights, a strong argument can be made for stacking crit rating this tier, but there is no mention of that.
If you think anything is actually wrong, please let me know and I'll change it.
As always, please let me know if I missed anything and I'll make the change.
- Removed glyph of flame shock from elemental glyphs
- T90 talent choice for enhance changed to primal elementalist
- changed chain lightning coefficient as it doesn't drop damage
- added lava beam coefficient
- new lava burst coefficient and mechanics
- updated EJ guide links
There's some indication that elemental mastery is the best single-target choice for enhance (EotE still wins on AE), but simcraft isn't fully updated yet so difficult to say. If anyone has theorycraft or sim output please do pipe up.
I'm wanting to do a bit of theory crafting for my enhancement shaman, but can't find reliable information about the behavior of the GCD and what affects it. (ex: how much haste it takes to lower it, does it count melee haste % or spell haste %, do flurry or similar effects lower it, and on and on) Got any good references? Or perhaps a combat-log addon that shows partial second timestamps, because the base one isn't cutting it.
And this was testing with no gear on for haste, just weapons.
