Enhance needs a filler ability

Shaman
Ok unless I'm doing something wrong, it just seems that while questing there are some times where I'm just standing there auto attacking for 2-4 seconds. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe Enhance is the only spec in the game without a spammable filler ability.

Is Blizz planning on giving us one ?
No melee really has filler abilities.

I haven't played my warrior in a while but dosent Overpower proc a lot?
Not a fan, I think it's fine the way it is. Things cost GCD's, and sometimes you'll need to use those non-DPS GCD's for situations. Having time to weave them in is important.

Not enough to be a "spammable filler ability"

Filler for warriors would be either Slam or Wild Strike, but the rage cost of both are quite high so "spammable" only in the sense of filling in the gaps of a rotation.

Fire Nova used to fill the gaps that enh has. You aren't the only class that has to wait though. Rogues sit on their hands a fair bit as well.
Lowest priority (use this when nothing else is on CD) is casting LB/CL with 2-3 stacks of maelstrom, I believe. Also at level 90 you'll have elemental blast or unleash elements to use as well.

unleash elements


that's not an extra spell
I find myself with no need for fillers in dungeons so far. What's your rotation?
They can bump up the damage of flametongue, and have haste reduce the cooldown of Lava Lash and reduce the cast time on Searing Totem.
Can someone tell me theire spell rotation for Enh pls. i have been to 3 dif sites and they all seem a bit off and my dps seems lacking

Anything to reduce the cooldown of either Stormstrike or Lava Lash would be perfect.
If you want a filler ability get Elemental Blast and hard-cast it whenever it's up.
Either fire nova for 2 or more targets or drop a totem. Heally totems are good!
Lightning Bolt is technically our filler; and is cast at 1 stack of Maelstrom Weapon at the bottom of our priority--assuming everything else is not available.
