Feb 18th 2010 8:12AM Sorry if you all feel the post says "hey look at me, I'm so awesome," if it came through that way, it wasn't the intent. I was only trying to give a comparison from fair experiences, I do raid, and when I do I'm in the top 3. I don't have all day and night to dedicate to a game, after work and family needs, I raid when time allows. Am I clearing ICC nope, but I do have a life outside of WoW.

I do want to say thank you though for finally giving a more detailed explanation of the comparisons and all the QQ going on about elem being so "Low." TY for the reply Sky. Grats on the quick leveling and gearing Emophia, not everyone can level and gear themselves to where you claim to be in only playing for a little over one month you must dedicate a lot of time to playing.

Feb 17th 2010 10:53AM Wow you leveled and geared pretty fast since you started in January, grats.

Perhaps there are some that can do it but as I stated there are many of those can not. Whats even sadder is that in Prot my tank can out perform many of those who are in similar level gear.

Dps is a dime a dozen, but those with swagger and those who perform well regularly are not.

However your claim of stating a higher average overall in heroic PoS is falic comparison at best. There are several factors that need to be taken, ie how many toxic wastes, and explosive barages one gets in Ick, how many dodges of thrown saronite you have, and how often you receive hoarfrost.... thus overall dps (can't cast while moving or stunned, duh its not like a bubble and keep attacking)

Feb 17th 2010 9:05AM Agreed but in the same point... casters particularly healers should be targeted first by the dps and burned down. BTW I tank too and I have more problems with DK's Death Gripping mobs out of my range, and druids knocking mobs back with typhoon out of consecration than I do with elem shamans knocking them around.

Feb 17th 2010 8:28AM You know everyone knocks the elemental shaman with claims that they are always falling behind on the dps charts. Why is this? I have an elem shaman with a gear score in the 4800 range and I consistently out dps other classes with gear scores in the 5K range. I go to raids and typically I'm the lowest geared person in the run, and yet I can finish in the top 3 dps.. what the deal, do people actually play the elem shaman that badly?

There is also one other fine point that I believe should be covered when using the thunderstorm knockback. When your healer can't keep up with the damage that the tank is taking you can knock back the mobs and cast a quick heal to help, and effectively give the healer a one to two seconds break to get a big spell off in. Should it be glyphed, no absolutely not. The key is to be at the right range, while casting the right spells.

With the right rotation in heroic PoS last night I had an overall dps for the instance of over 4500 and for the gauntlet I had dps those fights over 9000 and tipped the scale at one part of the fight over 10k.

If Michael writes to me via the e-mail address attached to this account I'll gladly share more information (rotation) with the community, perhaps it will make for another good article and put the elem shaman back on other players maps as a viable and dangerous hero of the game.

Feb 11th 2010 8:15AM Gear Score only equates to just that, a gear score. All my toons have gear scores below 5K one even a tank who routinely out dps's the plus 5K gear scored people.

Its very pathetic that this week for instance, I was looking to take my tank on Terenas on the Flame Leviathan run with my guild, the GL refused to allow me to participate because I still had gear that was rated below 232 level. WTF, Ulduar only drops 219 gear!!! The GL then refused to discuss it with me.

I think its time to put the feelers out for a new guild.
