Just wanted to start a thread for people to suggest best talents / pvp talents / artifact weapon building etc.


Curious to get everyone's thoughts/ideas.

How viable will Ele be in Legion?

btw i am enjoying ice fury a lot more than i was expecting

Cheers

Below is the build i am playing at the moment,

Some alternative's

15: Earthen Rage = Lazy man increase to DPS
30: Wind Rush could be good but probably need to test it more
45: Voodoo Totem isn't as good as i first imagined, think of it more like an AOE silence rather than a full duration CC
60: Echo feels smooth, but not sure if it is worth 10% haste for 1 more charge of lava burst
75: Primal ele is more pve DPS but need to do more testing, but i am loving Icyfury
90: Storm Ele is good, but not sure if it is worth replacing Ele Mastery and you also lose your fire ele in its place, but does generate a nice amount of Maelstrom.
100: Lightning rod could be viable with Artifact weapon build, but lightning bolt just doesn't hit for enough at the moment.

Fire and ice has a lot of synergy with icefury and with Ancestral swiftness we will have a passive 16% haste not including baseline stats

i think the other trinket options could be viable for ele as well

Counter strike totem could be really good against melee

not played a lot of ele beta cause i get really pissed when i die in the opener vs demon hunters / monks / dks etc.. however it looks the most fun to play spec of the 3 if I was to choose

this also goes for enhance, i just get mad how fast I die and literally nothing i can do to live its hilarious

although i feel the ele artifact is a bit shit but... maybe it could be good with primal elemental and storm ele

can someone explain what's the way to actually do damage? because other than aoeing stuff down with CL+EQ in bgs I don't see ele being useful other than bringing a curse dispel

I don't know if gear matters that much but my lava burst tickles people, only reliable source of damage is buffed frost shock and it's only that good if you can pool decent maelstrom

Maybe the spec becomes good with pvp talents but it looks really hard to play for now, hard in the way that I can't even do a minimum ammount of pressure to a healer

Chain lightning and EQ totem is not going to kill anyone,

The Icefury and frost shocks are probably the biggest point of damage for us at the moment, like most classes i feel like we are missing some key damage buffs,

Ascendance + Ele Mastery followed by Icefury & frost shocks is the main damage windows, but i have found you dont need to pool too much maelstrom because you get 24 maelstrom from icefury itself and usually you will get 1-2 lava surge procs before you use your 4 frost shocks.

I think ele will fall into a spot in between warlords and MOP... consistent damage but with a little bit of burst, but i do agree with how squishy we are compared to warlocks... they seem to be un-killable


I think the artifact weapon is a bit meh for ele, but wait and see i guess, ( because lightning bolt isn't doing a great amount of damage at the moment).
