We are going to hotfix an improved chance for the Lightning Overload talent to cast the half-damage Lightning Bolt or Chain Lightning. This hotfix should go in sometime over the next couple of days. The talent currently has a 7 / 13 / 20% chance to proc. The new change will be an 11 / 22 / 33% chance to proc. We think this will provide a roughly 5% dps increase for say the raid-buffed level 80 Elemental shaman.
Hopefully you can get another update to reflect this.
Is this change possibly going to cause LvB to be dropped from rotations? with it doing lower damage than previous due to losing glyph/4pc and possibly a totem are we going to go back to the BC days of LB spam?
No, just no. Even if Lightning Bolt gets to where it is doing more damage per cast on average than LvB, it still has a half second longer cast time. Flame Shock will still be cast either way as well, due to its insane damage per cast time. LB has a lot of ground to make up to overtake the usefulness of LvB...and if it ever happens, Blizz will fix it. They are pretty proud of LvB, don't expect them to make it obsolete.
I just downloaded it and am happy to see it also works with Open Office.
I just wonder how you guys use it. It is easy enough to fill in your current stats and see what dps you theoretically can do, but what if you want to compare possibly incoming gear (so you know what itema you want).
Lootrank gives an idea what the BiS items are. But all BiS items together would probably not get you the best gear set.
So i would love to know how you guys get the stats for future gear? Is there a spreadsheet that lets you select gear and then just sums up the relevant stats for this addon? Like in Sneaky's Hunter DPS sheet.
I very well see your point and you are right to do so.
But does anyone know a website/addon that lets me dress up my char with any gear just so i get easy access to the base stats required to enter in this nice addon?
Another thing i was wondering: the spreadsheet is supposed to be quite accurate yes?
My total Spell seems to be a bit off.
My base spell (character sheet) = 1934, bonus is 171, buffs = 638. This gives a total of 2743.
But my total spell damage in raid is always 2780. As i chose all buff options i cannot have less Spell in the sheet than in the raid. Somewhere i am doing something wrong? My armory link (because of argent crusade quests Torch of holy Fire might be missing)
Question 2: what is the purpose of Sockets & Bonuses part of the sheet. I don't see anything changing when i change those numbers.
Last question: Is there any way i can see or change the rotation used for calculations?
p.s. Maybe some of my confusement comes from the fact that i am using Open Office and don't see it working as it ws intended.
NFI what's causing the 37 spellpower difference out of ~2800, but the variation is minor anyway.
The Sockets & Bonuses is essentially a "plug in stats to see values" thing.
Rotation is fixed (in terms of how it is calculated), but adjust based on haste.
