The rules for submission of improved setups will follow in the footsteps laid out in the enhancement threads:
- Race must be Tauren or Dwarf. These races provide no dps benefit to an elemental shaman.
- Professions must be Alchemy and Enchanting. These don't interfere with normal enchants, and provide +80 intellect each.
- Provide a dps output value from simulationcraft (link) as evidence that your setup is an improvement over the current list. Submissions must be at least 0.5% (176 dps) better to warrant an update.
- List the full set of gear you think is best, not just what changes you would make to the current best list. If the list is updated your post won't make any sense otherwise. Provide a link to your proposed gear with chardev. This has the added benefit of being a convenient way to import gear into the sim.
- Under the Global tab, leave all settings at the default, except
- Iterations = 10000
- Length = 500
- Vary Length = 20%
- Leave all settings at the default in the Buffs and Debuffs tabs.
- In the Scaling tab, if you want stat weights make sure to check the appropriate boxes.
- Remember to include talents and glyphs in your chardev link, or your dps will be very low. 2/2 Ancestral Swiftness and Glyph of Unleashed Lightning are required for submissions, and Glyph of Fire Elemental Totem is not allowed.

Old BiS lists
Below is the final BiS list for tier 11 gear. This may not be the best available tier 11 gear profile anymore, as our mechanics changed with patch 4.2. This will no longer be updated though, and is only being preserved for historical interest.
