Only took 13 pages and roughly 2.5 months. Woo sticky!
About time.

Now to make all the 5.2 updates and rename it.
YAY STICKY!!!
Awesome guide! Was a ton of help to me in getting my enhancement spec up and running!
So when are we gonna be updated for 5.2 changes? Unfortunately I haven't had the time to do any PTR so I'm unaware of how the changes affect our dps.
When 5.2 hits.
Updating tomorrow, assuming 5.2 is released.
Well with the date officially announced to be tomorrow, I'll probably just update this now. If blizzard ends up being lying jerks, then it'll just be a week in advance so oh well.
okay mostly updated, will probably go back and fix a couple things once all the RPPM changes bull!@#$ is sorted out
Ok, so now we are reforging to haste being the #1 stat? Plus UF is no longer the level 90 talent we should be using? Why is this true now? I'm just curious as to the numbers. And as far as "higher gear levels" are concerned, what would you consider higher? Above 500? 490?

PE buffed, UF nerfed

tl;dr: PE values haste more, so we want haste now.

I'd go with above 500, but if you're talking about the weapon enchants, at that point you really should be using dancing steel anyway.
Thanks Chillbros! You're the best!!!
Ok maybe im not understanding this correctly or or misreading something somewhere. But how exactly does Primal Elementalist have such a huge benefit from haste? I see nothing in tooltip about haste at all. only to changes of the Cast elemental.
What am i missing here. Why are we switching to Haste from Mastery?
I have been testing this out on PTR for a while now and when switching stats around im still seeing that mastery priority is doing more DPS then haste priority.
Unlike some other classes, Enhancement has not hit the point yet where 2 points of a secondary stat are better than 1 point of agility, so our gemming will match this. This may change later on, and I will change the guide to reflect that.

LATER ON HAS ARRIVED.

Well, in a few weeks, probably.

* EDIT: Probably not the best idea to say haste > mastery, yet, because it won't be true for anyone in current gear. That's going to be a gradual thing that happens as we gear up in throne.

* EDIT: Should include crit to cloak as an enchant option, especially because lol hit rating for this tier

The elementals scale with our stats. The more haste/crit/mastery/AP we have, the more they have. They just happen to scale super well with haste.

Also like Purge said, haste hasn't overtaken mastery quite yet. And testing DPS on PTR on target dummies or anything like that is pretty inaccurate at best.
I know this is a noob question to ask, but do we use LL at 5 stacks or on CD? =X i know lol.... New to shamans.
except at the very stat of the fight, you should always have 5 stacks anyway

but yeah, use it on CD
Thank you very much and wonderful guide!
So, haste > mastery at higher gear levels. And haste is more important with PE.

Does that mean, at lower gear levels Unleash Elements is still better?

Or still pick up PE because of the buff it got, and stick with mastery till higher gear?

I'm confused!
