Regardless the topic and past few posts, I have few questions about elemental and need tips about it.
Lately, officers are looking at worldoflogs and stateofdps which is making me kinda depressed. Iâ€™m sometimes near those numbers on meters, sometimes far away from them.
I will try to put up this post as clear as possible so you can read and answer in the most easiest way.
*Life Blood, Berserking, Elemental Mastery
Iâ€™m using a simple macro for those. They have different cooldowns and keeping in mind that with enough haste, our elemental mastery CD refreshes really fast, how do you manage to use those 3? Should we simply use any of those CDâ€™s when available after we use it first time or wait for all of them to refresh and than hit the macro again.
Iâ€™m aware it depends of situation but what would be the best way to maximize the DPS.
**Rotation with chain lightning
As many of you are raiding, there are few encounters that acquire a lot of AOE. Keeping in mind that our earthquake takes too much mana, it make us AOE-useless when it comes to that spell, so rotation with CL is a must.
Right now Iâ€™m talking about HC Maloriak. What would be the best rotation with chain lightning included into it? Any tips about the fight overall.
My latency is often around 200-250. Since Iâ€™ve been playing restoration for almost 5 years, it didnâ€™t really matter much. As it is now, I wonder how does it affect elemental and is it a big problem. Reason Iâ€™m asking is that our DPS is based on how fast we cast and how fast we use available cooldowns. I have feeling that elemental just canâ€™t afford any latency?
****Doing something wrong
Often I just have feeling Iâ€™m doing something wrong. My rotation is pretty much fine.
I cast flame shock, right after lava burst, spam LB until Iâ€™m at 7 stacks of fulmination, filling up with LB again. I donâ€™t have issues with flame shock CD since Iâ€™m using flame shock glyph.
Also, when switching targets. I need a tip about how do you start the fight again. Letâ€™s take Omnotron Defense System as an example. How do you switch targets there and do you start the rotation all over again?
Since I honestly havenâ€™t played elemental much (playing only since cataclysm, been forced to switch specs due to elemental need), tip me with stuff I should take care of. My gear is not bad at all, actually got all the gear I need. Please, try to be informative about my question as much as possible. Iâ€™m slowly loosing the patience with being under hunters, mages, moonkins and rogues.
Thanks in advance,
