Elemental glyphs

12 March 2014 - 12:48 PM

Hello fellow shamans,

it has been a long time since I played arenas competitively and wow in general (last time in Wrath at 2,6 rat 3v3 and 2,8 mmr 5v5).
I was checking what is trending nowadays for elemental shammies and got a bit stuck concerning glyphs.
Jontez's guide is a bit outdated for this season (at least it seems to me) and I was wondering, what is the best possible combination of glyphs. I do understand it depends on comp you are playing and on the enemy you are facing, but if anyone could enlighten me when and what is the best to be used (Novoz, Zeepy, Talbadar - mainly looking at you guys.))

Glyph of Lightning Shield seems like necessary almost all the time, but then I got into troubles.

these are (as it seems and also in my opinion) usable glyphs:

Glyph of Capacitor totem
Glyph of Healing Stream Totem
Glyph of Ghost Wolf
Glyph of Flame Shock
Glyph of Hex
Glyph of Shamanistic Rage

I realise it also depends on the bracket you are currently playing arenas in and/or if you are going rated BGs.
I see Nuvoz going with Capacitor/shield/wolf; Zeepy going with Shield/Healing Stream(or Hex)/Flame shock; Talbadar going with Shield/Healing Stream/Wolf.
Those are only one of the top elemental shaman I was checking up on, but it is possible people are using different glyph setups.

I was trying to find the effectiveness of Glyph of ghost Wolf, but just couldn't. could someone present any numbers for that glyph at all?

Thank you guys!
May the power of totems be with you .)


P.S. also I am looking at the issue of Elemental Blast vs. Unleashed Fury. Can't really figure out what is (suits me) better. What do you recommend for Destro/Elemental play?
