I see lots of eles running with resto gear offpieces, why do they do this and should I do it myself on my shaman?

Thanks for the guide! I'm leveling an Ele Shaman right now--this is very helpful. :D

I wonder though if Echo of the Elements is a bit overlooked. I'm not saying it's super amazing, (I really love 5% free haste on NS). But if what I've read is correct--that is, echoes can mastery and mastery can echo--then it should be able to add a pretty sizable amount of burst. If you shoot 5 spells (including mastery procs) during a burst/kill attempt, you have a ~27% chance to get at least one Echo. Each Echo is worth 1 full damage spell, plus a 33% chance (from Jonte's armory, I don't know if this is particularly high or low mastery) to proc a mastery for 75% damage. 33%*75% = another 25% damage. So each Echo is worth 125% of a regular spell. I think a 25% chance to do 25% more damage on each burst is pretty good! I know that this is random and uncontrollable, but people frequently use proc PvE trinkets that add 25% damage, which seems pretty similar to me. Echo has the advantage of being totally unpredictable, (both a disadvantage and an advantage, but it means opponents cannot see a PvE trinket proc and react accordingly). But it's also maybe a factor in fewer burst attempts than proc trinkets are (which are usually up for more than 1 in 4 bursts).

Maybe 5 spells is too many to assume for a standard burst attempt? Or maybe it doesn't work like I assume? I guess I'm not trying to say this is the best thing ever, since it's obvious the other two talents provide huge value. But it does seem like a somewhat overlooked option, I think in large part due to the fact that it's so hard to tell mastery procs apart from echo procs. It's hard to see that it's doing anything at all.


I love when someone makes a point and actually does some research to back up their point. Good stuff Nada!
