Rule 1: Don't use ellipses instead of proper punctuation, and don't start a new line every time you start a new sentence.
Rule 6: Instead of freely sprinkling apologies through your post, search and read, and then you'll find the information yourself. Then you won't have to ask for help, and you won't have to apologize for asking. Also, if you're really a long-time reader, then you've probably noticed that there are rules here, and most people follow them. The people who don't follow them get infractions. You should read through the banhammer some time, to see what not to do.
The ideal priority is an ongoing discussion. We don't know yet what the best one will look like. It will probably depend on your gear anyway.
Why would you skip core single-target dps talents just because they don't help for aoe burns? The reason Blizzard removed the ability to use fire nova with searing totem is to make our priority less frantic. Use magma with fire nova for aoe; use searing the rest of the time.
New to EJ here, but a long-time lurker. I don't even know how long... just a long time.
Anyways. I wasn't able to find a post related to this, and I hope I don't irritate anyone by asking this, but since 4.0 launch, talent changes, etc... for Enhance Shamans, do we gem Haste still? Or gem Agility?
Also, with Searing Totem no longer being able to Fire Nova, should I just not bother throwing points into the ImpST and then IMP Lava Lash (despite it now being a 10 second cooldown).
One more thing, sorry, but has our rotation changed at all?
