ATTN BLIZZ: HOTFIX IS BUGGED!

Shaman
1 2 3 5 Next
So..here's the list of changes

Elemental
Mastery effects increased by 12.5%.
Chain Lightning Maelstrom generation increased to 6.
Lightning Bolt (Elemental) damage increased by 23%.
Chain Lightning (Elemental) damage increased by 23%.
Lava Burst damage increased by 5%.
Storm Elemental (Talent)’s Call Lightning and Wind Gust damage increased by 20%.

Ok, so what is CURRENTLY happening is you added the damage to the original cast, but not the overload damage.

Currently we are missing 23% damage from chain lightning overloads and lightning bolt overloads, and 5% from lava burst overloads..

Any chance you can fix this ASAP?

i.e here are some numbers to prove it.

With MoTE (Master of the Elements)
Lightning bolt - hit 54571 - overload 37245 (68% instead of 84%)
Lava burst - hit 69724 - overload 55906 (80% instead of 84%)

Without MoTE
Lightning bolt - crit 153 846 - overload 93751 (61% instead of 75% ..missing 23%)
Lava Burst - crit 212318 - overload 152029 (71.6% instead of 75% ...missing 5%)
Disheartening to see this. Why do I have a feeling that this was intended and that the buffs were ONLY supposed to be for the abilities themselves, not Overload procs?

Hoping that a dev chimes in today in regards to this.
It would be impressive to see some real love to Ele shamans, the spec has a blast of fun, but it's totally inviable because... numbers.

Restoration shamans lightning bolts hit harder then elementals, i mean, why a master of the elements would throw weaker lightning bolts?
does it matter if the numbers are improved? id play a bit before complaining.

It absolutely matters.
Please, this is a pretty big oversight. I'm glad someone tested it and it shoudl be fixed. And yes, it does matter if they didn't do it correctly.
Please fix this bliz. Quickly before restart day is over.
This absolutely matters and if not fixed will put us at the bottom for the 1st week of Mythic progression.
Oversight. Will be fixed ASAP.

Been getting reports from Demon Hunters that the old planned hotfixes to Throw Glaive and Bloodlet were pushed out instead of the new ones. May want to look into that as well.
Thank you Watcher.

Probably already aware, but it seems like nothing from the revised notes went in, all from the original (shadow priest / havoc changes are the old ones, etc.), wrong build applied?
Thank you Watcher for the quick response!

And HUGE thanks to Fauzen and the ele Shaman Discord community for testing and advocating for this awesome spec!
