@AngusWOW, thanks for the response. One thing I never understood about Lava Burst is the cooldown/cast time combo. I know there may be some spells that I can’t think of off the top of my head, but there seems to be a general pre-lich formula for cast times to be instant when it comes to burst abilities having cooldowns. The old formula seemed to apply best to mages.There seems to be a break from that philosophy in WotLK now with Chaos Bolt, Penance, and Lava Burst.With mages and locks, there is enough insta-cast going on that they can maintain dots or do damage, but elementals seems to be screwed here according to your response.Wouldn’t the easiest response be to make Lava Burst insta cast and maintain a long cooldown? Wouldn’t that be a step in the right direction for bumping shaman dps if in fact movement is the thorn on the side of shaman. Doing so would increase dps in fights that require movement and not really alter stationary DPS since elemental shaman are really only charged 1.5 seconds (a GCD) for lava burst if they are talenting lightning mastery?
