Primal Elementalist vs Elemental Blast (Orcs)

Shaman
has there been any number crunching for Orc Shaman choosing Primal Elementalist vs. Elemental Blast?

I'm trying to squeeze out any amount of DPS i can in PVE. i was thinking as an orc, having a more powerful "pet" might edge out Elemental Blast. I would assume, you would go with the glyph too.
No Elemental blast is a key spell in our rotation now. We don't just spam LB now we us EB on Cooldown if LvB isn't on cooldown. The proc and damage from EB is leaps and bounds better then the elemental.

Thank you, I was just curious because of the Orc racial "Command" if the pet would pull ahead (with glyph and actively recalling totems)

The DPS difference between the two is fairly small. It edges out to be in EB's favor, but it's not a "key talent" to take as if to imply it's a do or die talent.

In fact, on a fight that requires controlled burst PE is a better talent to take than EB. It is the staple talent, but it is not the ultimate talent.

If it "edges out" for all shaman, would the orc racial (command-2%) with glyph and actively recalling totems (with talent) would that make Primal Elementalist more beneficial?
