Hmmm... maybe I was wrong in first assuming this would be especially interesting for Enhancement shamans. Is Fire Nova going to be instant-cast? For AoEing adds like in Onyxia, might we do a Magma Totem with Fire Nova and Chain Lightning like crazy? I also think on fights like Sarth you can focus on the dragon and leave your FT totem over near the off-tank with the adds, then hit Fire Nova every time it's up... or will the damage just be too low to bother....? I just love my Shaman.

For Elemental a cast time=GCD effectively negates the cast time while for Enhancement this would not be a good thing. I really do not see a need for a cast time on this as the GCD is penalty enough and keeps it in line with the shocks. Also, Talented and glyphed would get this down to 3 sec. cooldown. I wonder if using this along with Magma totem wouldn't be a bit OP on add/trash heavy encounters.

A GCD isn't that bad for enhance when we can have 4 or more seconds of our main spells being on CD. Instead of just spamming lightning shield at those points we can let off a fire nova.
