I present to you a fairly standard priority queue for an enhancement shaman on single target fight (as taken off MMO-Champ forums):1. Searing Totem if expired.2. Storm Strike3. Lava Lash.4. Maelstrom Weapon x5 - Lightning Bolt.5. Flame Shock - If Unleash Flame Buff is active.6. Unleash Elements.7. Earth Shock.8. Feral Spirit.9. Searing Totem.10. Maelstrom Weapon 3 or more - Lightning Bolt.11. Refresh Lightning Shield.Sweet joy.

you left out the part where all that happens in just a hair over ten seconds.a flawless enhancement opening salvo is a thing of beauty to behold. not to mention an ass-ton of damage in a very short time if said shaman is stat'd right. i've had threat pulled off my DK even after a good frontloading by good enh shaman...it's DDR for your fingers, and it's impressive when done right. the best analog to it i've found is the top-end bards from EQ, who were twisting magic effects together(songs lasted past when you ended them so you could layer effects together with nigh-100% uptime on up to five or six effects) with similarly perfect timing needed.

anyone who ever played a bard in eq gets an automatic spot in my raids. That was THE most difficult and rewarding class I have ever played in an mmo.

I play a Holy Paladin and an Enhancement Shaman, and I *love* the complex priority system of the Enh Shaman. I play Ret on occasion and just think it's a poor man's Enh Shaman, then go back to my dual-wielding, lightning-throwing, totem-laying maniac and love every minute of it.
