Oct 17th 2008 1:52PM The purpose for many of us reading these articles is that we raid and group all the time. In general, these builds are not about leveling and questing. If you want to be doing the best DPS you can, despite Blizzard making it hard for elementals, you look to maximize the points given to u to spend on the talent tree. That being said, any points in Resto is gimping your DPS. The Thunder-shock new spell is fun and all but has no real use in raids. Putting 13 points into enhancement is one of the few ways to make the most of your points.
If you are saying "don't tell me so and so is the only way to spec" then don't read these types of articles. Do what you may with your elemental tree and speccing, but for maximizing DPS, which is what elemental is all about, I would recommend that you leave resto for healers or hybrid leveling. 13 points into enhancement will give you more mana, bigger crits, and more spell-damage. Why would you choose better healing over that?
