You close the article with a mention of spell alerts which I find interesting as I have yet to see a single icon light up my screen while playing my Elemental Shaman. Maybe I'm running with a messed up spec or something not sure but I see them constantly on my Frost Mage and absolutely never on my Elemental Shaman. What spell alerts should I be seeing?

There's an alert aura for Lava Surge, like two giant wings made of fire.

My question too. I am leveling an ele shammy (currently lvl 70) and am yet to see anything other than green text for lava surge. On my boomkin main I see the shooting stars and clearcasting proc auras all the time.

Jealouspirate - I have 2/2 talent points in Lava Surge and I have never seen anything other than the green text when it procs. I have my opacity on spell alerts set to max so if something where there I would see it. Are you using an addon like Power Aura's still or just the in game spell alerts that were included in the patch?

I'm not seeing this spell alert, either. I didn't even know they had implemented any for Fulmination or Lava Surge. I would like to know how to get this to work. I was really feeling like Elemental was being left out, but I guess I'm just encountering a bug.

It is possible for some of those not seeing the proc alerts for Lava Surge, but yes it is their. Blizz's default UI will show when Lava Surge's procs, and assuming you have specced 2/2 into Lava Surge, and assuming that you put Flame Shock on the target first before casting Lava Burst. After playing with the spec back when 4.01 was on ptr, I love the new tree for Elemental now than I did before. Now with 4.03 going to ptr and soon 4.03a and reading Totem Talk, I changed out a few glyphs. The first one was going with Lightning Shield glyph and second was going with Flame Shock glyph. Gotta love the 'never going below 3 charges of lightning shield' and increasing the dot time when Flame Shock is applied helps out alot when putting Earth Shock into our rotation due to Fulmination.

@arixian,I don't use PowerAuras or anything like it, it's definitely coming from the default UI. Interestingly, it didn't show up right after the patch, but a few days after. I don't really know why it started working, but now it works every time.

@myselfNow that I think of it, the alert might be coming from the updated version of Totem Timers, which I use. It's either that or the default UI.

They've actually added a small spell alert for a 9 stack fulmination on Beta, but I shall double check that my insomnia+addons did not serve to confuse me on that point as well.
