One point you may want to add to the OP when you get around to it, is BoK/MotW's affect on hit if we get Elemental Precision.
It turns spirit into the best stat for ele shamans (that we can reforge for, int may be better strictly speaking not sure on the weights.) By using spirit instead of hit you gain approximately 100 rating points that can be used elsewhere.
Never mind, I should have double checked this before posting. Thanks Nesukun.
Nope it wouldnÂ´t be a DPS gain going from 1 point to 2 if you are spamming multishot. The only thing that affects Serpent spread is the duration of SrS on the target, not the initial damage from improved SrS
in my opinion CS forced us to plan our rotation a bit, esp for arms, but still holds its truth for fury aswell
to give you the possibilty to plan your rotation you dont want bursty rage gen, so in my eyes hit is the favorable stat it doesnt allow this down times that you have with miss streaks.
when you run out of ammo in your 6 seconds of awesomeness you dump your dps by quite a huge deal
of course crit is a nice stat and a huge dps boost but i wouldn recommend to forget about hit or haste in that regard
I was sifting through posts here, but I dont see quite what im looking for.
First off thanks to all who do the great work of grinding numbers for us.
What im looking for is feedback on what stats should we be shooting for.
Im not tanking big stuff yet, just heroics ,but I want to be effective so , what is ideal Parry, Dodge, Hit Points, and Mastery we should be looking for ? ( mind you for heroics ) As it is im at 142k ish hp unbuffed, Mastery is 13.96 ( 87%) Dodge 11.04 parry 11.78 . I do have a 2.70 % chance to miss things, but i have not run into any issues yet with not keeping agro. I will work that out in time having enough hit cap.
And im not asking if what i have is good or not, just showing what i have, and the point of all this , is what should , or what is ideal numbers we should be shooting for , in heroics. to work our way up to 10 - 25 mans.
So we are saying that we need to gem for Intel first or Haste, then move to Spirit? I am a new Shaman roller from the DK class and trying to learn as much as possible. I am having geming and reforging issues. Please help me cast a faster healing spell, and have more MANA. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the answer.
Which leads me to a other question.
Is it better to just drop Rupture in the rotation, and only use Envenomed?
SnD > Envenomed
Or as the guides tell
SnD > Rupture > Envenomed.
As far i can see, there are no use for Venomous Wounds, besides the opening with Garote. if you don't use Rupture in the rotation, but he is sure that he can make more dps with out Rupture in the rotation.
