In Topic: Elemental or Enhancement?

23 February 2016 - 09:13 AM

If you go for ele/mage/x
  • Is the mage playing frost or fire?
  • What healer is best for the setup?

In Topic: Going higher than 100% mastery as elemental - what happens?

If the additional stat points are wasted, it feels pretty stupid that it is so easy to go over the 100% "cap". Maybe there was a chance of an extra proc or something like that when you went higher than 100% ...

Many shamans are in this dilemma now (without going for mastery at all, my shaman is at 110% already - not fully geared yet)

In Topic: Ele Stat Priorities? Just came back to the game

Personally I would use it over the proc version.

But I guess it really depends on whether you gear for setup "A" or "B".
  • A: intellect > haste > versatility > multistrike > crit
  • B: intellect > haste > multistrike > versatility > crit

In Topic: Elemental - weapon enchant multistrike, why not?

Yea, maybe it is indeed best to just put the haste enchant on and not worry about it anymore, It just feels a little sad when "Elemental Overload" looks so tasty.
(20% increased chance to multistrike - 20% extra damage from multistikes - gain 10% more of the multistrike stat from all sources)

BTW: is versatility below multistrike and crit still?

with haste the faster flameshock ticks give more procs of instant lava bursts - that is great.

But the benefit of multistrike in pvp seems to be a topic that many disagree about.

In PvE you get two "rolls" for a multistrike spell to go off - but in PvP you only get one "roll" for a multistrike spell to go off.

However - is it correct that if I have 50% of the multistrike stat, then I should get two 25% chance rolls for multistrikes in PvE. BUT in PvP i get one 50% chance roll for a multistrike?

If that is the way it works, you should not be losing total damage, but "only" suffer the potential extra burst from the two spells you had in PvE.

This is one of the places I found confusing arguments. Random players talking - but does anyone have a blue-comment about this topic?
