I find that in 5s, 3s, I dont do enough damage, you can look at my 5s match history (im loleleshaman) and even when some teams dont target me, my damage is substantially lower than other ele shamans do in their match histories. Is this because I'm trying to purge every buff, sacred shield, pw:s etc? Or should I keep bolting and only shock the paladins greater heal and throw a hex?

Or is my dmg low because I suck at CLing their whole team and my SP is low? Maybe I should get the 200+ base to lava burst totem? Cirranis uses it. Last night average 5.5k lvb crits, max 7.5k.

Well it depends on what you are purging in which situation, stealth purging before a switch is always nice but for nuking it depends on which buffs. If you purge a pws thats roughly 5k dmg if you purge it right away. Though in other cases that might not be that beneficial.
So id say use it on absorb effects before LB and on eventual hp buffs after.

Purge at the start of a match (when teams are coming in, or you are going to them) or when you know you can't get off damage/casts (getting trained/LoS'ing a lot etc).

Your priority should be damaging/interrupting, then purging when you can't do either.

But since my other 3 wizard comrades are nuking, the shield and absorb affects effectivly are removed before my purge can get it (takes a lot of tries), so I'm thinking KEEP BOLTING YEAH

seriously do you purge in pve? no
don't bother purging when everyone is dpsing, just dps right back and tell your healers to actually heal you. i realised that even if you get nuked it's better to press your macro for grounding/stoneclaw and just keep going. spam lava burst/cl lb and you will get a kill for sure. if you purge instead i'm sure you'll see people go low but survive it and once enemy healers start spam healing it's impossible to get an easy kill and you need to waste time on switching targets which makes 5v5 take too long! at least i'm pretty certain that at lower ratings 5v5 2.2> this pretty much works always out.
if you got a priest in team just tell him to dispel some shit before you start to take dmg, if you got a hpala bombing shit on you he isn't going to spam fl on you anyway.
