Elemental is currently extremely lackluster to the point of being worse than ret in s15, in a few, very limited comps they can sort of work but in general it will be impossible to win most games if you aren't paired with a disc priest and a rogue/lock.

Right now the game is pretty fun and fast paced for a select few classes, others boring and slow paced but still, they are able to kill things. Ele currently, it is IMPOSSIBLE to land kills on things with braincells. I was fooled into thinking it was ok after the buff but in reality anyone with a brain cannot die to an ele without heavy heavy dampening, and at that stage if you haven't killed them you deserve to lose really. There are a few comps I haven't tried yet like ele ret/ele boomkin but tbh without damage buffs I can't see either working, being a purge/shear/ground bot isn't fun either.

I suggest that another small flat damage increase is brought in, aswell as either a flat casting speed increase to around 1.4 seconds base cast time on LB/LvB, and 1.8 on Earthquake, with 1.5 on Chain Lightning (Not sure how this would affect pve though). My lava burst is currently 1.8 second cast which is practically impossible to even cast, even if it hit for anything, or a large damage increase like another 15% on lava burst / lightning bolt / fulminate + lightning bolt while moving.

Also to people saying the best players will make it work, sure, anyone can do well with anything if they partners but in reality who will play with an ele when they can play with a dk ret feral or mage instead? Every comp ele is just a subpar version of something else.

Buffs which you suggested can't take place, since it would make elementals absolutely insane in PvE. What we need right now, beside obvious damage buff, is some sort of punishement for melees for training us. At is now, with 45s cd on Thunderstorm and with gigantic lack of mobilny, there is no chance to make any sort of pessure.

Honestly, I have no idea what could make us better without butting too much into Blizzard's bellowed PvE.

In my eyes, the 2 things that screwed us over in PvP is making all crits 150% and focusing Elemental spec on multistrike, which is 50% less effective in PvP combat.
I think, that PERHAPS making Lvb 200% crit in PvP would make us viable again.
