Totem Talk: Restoration shaman, axes and mana concerns {WoW}

Jul 27th 2011 7:24AM Enhancement's affection towards spell power weapons has two main reasons - one, almost 50% of our single target damage and probably over 80% of our AoE damage are affected by spell power, and two, our scaling with weapon DPS is quite low; thus, any reasonably slow spell power weapon comes out grossly overbudgeted (using my own stat weights, the Eye is almost twice more DPS than a comparable Agility MH). That said, the Agi MH/OH route is fairly competitive and quite a bit simpler to play and Blizzard have repeatedly tried to steer Enh away from spell power weapons; thus, I personally haven't used a spell power setup so far.

Totem Talk: Enhancement's 4.2 shopping list {WoW}

Jun 12th 2011 10:27AM I'd argue that the Erupting Volcanic Legguards are a definite upgrade over heroic Leggings of Lethal Force - http://ptr.wowhead.com/compare?items=71304.0.0.0.52212.52212.0.0.32.49;65049.0.0.0.52212.52220
When fully gemmed and reforged, the comparison is 63 Agi, 119 crit rating and 54 hit rating vs. 198 mastery, and that's a win for the Legguards, more so after you replace Fluid Death and lose its boatload of hit rating.

Enhancement shaman itemization and the end boss effect {WoW}

Jun 10th 2011 7:25AM I'm regularly in the top 5 in our 25-man, and being beaten by hunters and fury warrs which both are getting nerfs in 4.2 and which both have access to heroic weapons. Also, I'm in bottom 5 in damage taken on Nef, with judicious use of Shamanistic Rage, glyphed Stoneclaw and wolves... So, while we're not The DPS, I'd say we do pretty well :-)

Totem Talk: Epicly gearing your enhancement shaman {WoW}

Feb 4th 2011 8:04AM The Unleashed Rage talent provides the 8 expertise to the shaman at all times, so definitely look for 18 expertise from gear (less if dwarf\orc with racial weapons); furthermore, the 10% AP aura that the talent also provides has not been proc-based since early ICC.

Growing Pains: How to approach gearing up your tank {WoW}

Feb 1st 2010 7:00AM 1. Advertise in Trade that you're buying 60 Conquest/Valor badges
2. Get laughed at by multiple morons
3. Obtain ilvl 213 BoE bracers for 150g
4. Laugh at the aforementioned morons every time you look at your brand new epics.

Breakfast Topic: What's your weapon of choice? {WoW}

Jan 30th 2009 8:44AM Undoubtedly bows as a main weapon and 2-handed swords as a stat stick on my hunter... Unfortunately, the only hunter melee weapons that look half way decent are the both Polearms - Black Ice and the Wraith Spear...
