So I have two major players these days: A shadow priest and a shaman (usually resto, but off spce'd as elemental). I'm very annoyed that my shadow priest who is LESS WELL GEARED was pumping 2-3k dps more than my elemental, who is stuck at 8-9 k. Is it me? No really, maybe I'm not getting the rotation. Or are elemental shammies across the board doing less than they 'should' be.

The biggest challenge for me atm is getting the AoE rolling. Takes a while to ramp up, however when you get the multiple flame shock - fire nova combo down alongside lava busts and chain lightning (and the odd earthquake when the situation and numbers of adds allows) it really ramps up the meter. Some sort of nameplate mod, I use threat plates, helps a lot as you can set it up to see which mobs already have flame shock applied as you quickly switch around. You might have seen that fire nova is getting buffed in 4.2 in a couple of ways so if you can get 3+ mobs shocked and nova'd now on trash pulls it will pay off even more when the patch drops. Personally I think earthquake was more in need of a buff then fire nova - just doesn't feel competitive enough compared to other end talent tree abilities for me but I'm not gonna complain at the incoming changes!Other than that look at the excellent 101 post on the Elitist Jerks forums and certainly dps of around 14-15k on most hc runs should be achiveable without being a top 1% player or being uber geared.
