Going to separate this from the rest, because I remember this from wrath:There was a long debate that was eventually settled over the course of wrath of the lich king about whether shaman should be gemming for attack power or haste. It was found that AP was good up to certain gear levels, at which point you were better switching to haste gems. The point at which you were to switch from AP to haste gems could be determined by EnhSim, and that was really the only way you could know for sure... and people let others know it when they asked for advice.Fortunately blizzard removed that type of gearing decision with Cataclysm. To be REQUIRED to figure out a major gear-gemming situation by a complex simulator was bad game design. It made for a good discussion, for sure, but it was a very bad mechanic. So at least some of the insane complexity of enhance shaman has been removed.
