Is elemental shaman fun to play?
Return to board index
In Ulduar/ToC gear I do less DPS as elemental than in my Ulduar / Naxx Enhancement set.
That's because the gear doesn't scale as well as it does with Enhancement...you know, the spec that is gear dependent.
And I wasn't wrong about enhancement being less gear dependant. It is less gear dependant. Elemental is only able to match it / do better than it when you have an extraordinary amount of haste and spell power.
Incorrect. The fact that you have to stack both Hit Rating and Expertise to maintain consistent DPS with Enhancement versus just Hit Rating for Elemental means that, from Heroics to Naxx, you're going to hit more often and have the ability to stack said Haste and Spell Power within gems. Further along, however, and Enhancement overtakes Elemental on the scales simply due to the difference in scaling.
I'm of course speaking from first-hand experience as well as the extensive research done by all the min/maxers in the community. Feel free to object, but it's hard to do so when you look at the numbers.

What it lacks in complication, it makes up for in cool-factor. Lava Burst
just looks awesome
, especially when you know that when it gets to its target it's going to crit, and crit BIG.
Lightning Bolt and Chain Lightning are pretty awesome with
(lightning storm in your fingertips ftw).
Edit: Just thought I'd contribute to the other conversation happening regarding gear dependance. Enhancement is far more gear dependant than Elemental.
Elemental does very high DPS at freshly dinging level 80 compared to Enhancement, and gear upgrades don't make much of a difference down the line for Elemental, whereas Enhancement gear brings very noticeable DPS increases with every upgrade. This is the definition of gear dependance.
and if you are solo open with a lb flame lava and where did that mob go? I lost him in the flames :)
