Hi and thank you for applying!

I'm the troll of the guild and love to bitch on applications...so here goes:

1. Your enchanting......you enchant hit and expertise?? Thats like swearing in church.....you got low enchant on chest, wrong enchant on legs and not extalted with therazane for shoudler enchant...4 weeks is more then enough to get it exalted.

2. you miss two major glyphs...not a biggie, but if you had to what would the last two be

3. Your experience is really low...even from wrath. No full weeks of wiping on hc bosses at all??

EDIT: I just saw...Avalnche enchant on weapon.....do please explain that one...


Please comment my comments Smile

Why hi,

1. All my enchants are now fixed and correct Smile I am half way through to getting exalted so it won't take long now.

2. Glyph of Ghost Wolf & either Glyph of Fire Nova or Glyph of Chain Lightning.

3. I know I have never had the chance to properly raid and the guild I am with now they don't really do progression although I try to encourage them but they don't have the gear, time or skill for it.

Cheers

PostSubject: My turn   Fri Dec 02, 2011 7:17 pm

Evening

First of all i know as much about shamans as i do astrophysics and i have no fucking idea about that. so rotation spec etc that's down to others.

1. Missing 2 major Glyps 1 minor, why is this ?

2. ok i understand the guild your in at the moment may be struggling alot but your progress is a worry., that brings me onto how do we know that when we hit HC content and have had a week of wipe nights that you won't bitch out and quit? not a judge of your character we just don't know you right now and we are recruiting for the long term, so we need to know your worth it.

3. i will give you some credit tho, the application had some time put into it which is nice, its nice to see you have listened to wolf in regards to your gear, just your shoulder enchant that needs sorting.

4. just checked ej against your gear etc looks ok.

lastly, im 99.8% sure that unless your running a £1000+ pc that your UI pack will have horrible issues with 25 man raiding. you might want to look at something abit more lightweight. Elvui is a nice one.

Ps. Do you have a sence of humour...

Peace out bitch tits

Hey,

1. All sorted now.

2. Well I could right some clichéd crap here about I'm all in it for the guild and stuff but I suppose you hear that all the time. So basically then only way I could really prove it is to show you, also I hate the idea of quitting and giving up what's the point in trying if you are just going to give up?

3. Thanks, my shoulder enchant will be sorted within 2 days.

About my UI i will download ElvUI and give it ago however I have never noticed a problem with it and it seem fine when doing the LFR.

I did, my guild didn't :/

In a bit, you massive tit.

Morning,

Was moving house this weekend so here it comes...

Quote :
2. What is your rotation for single target?
I use a priority system of: Totems, Unleash Elements with Flame shock, lava Lash, Storm strike, earth shock, lightning bolt

Im not sure if you just chucked this stuff in, but it looks odd, can you explain your reasoning behind this or adjust to suit, I would like to see it in a list format with the highest prio ability at the top and the lowest at the bottom (noting any specific conditions)

e.g

1. Troll Realm Forums
2. Troll Trulz on Skype
3. Get Banned from realm forums
4. Troll council forums (only if 3 has occured)
5. make a brew, & eat crumpets


Expertise Cap

Can you explain why you have opted to go over the cap for your MH, and why this would be a benefit or a hinderance?

Stat Weights

Can you explain the current stat weights for enhancement



That's all for now

My priority system is like this:

1. Refresh searing totem when about 3 seconds left on the searing flames DOT
2. Cast lava Lash
3. Unleashed Elements followed by Flame shock
4. Lightning bolt when 5x Maelstrom weapon
5. Stormstrike
6. Earth Shock

Due to the 7 second duration on unleash flame I can weave other abilities in between Unleashed Flame and Flame shock.

Expertise Cap
It was due to the fact to make my off hand weapon at expertise capped, however this is not a problem any more as I have obtained an axe and now both weapons are at 26 expertise.

Stat Weights
Obviously Hit is the most important followed by expertise, with both of these capped out the next most important is mastery, followed by crit and haste being the least important stat.

Thanks for the reply,

Why do you have Stormstrike as a low priority and where does Maelstrom Weapon x 5 + LB fit in?

Where does Spirit Wolves fit into that que

Sorry firstly I made a mistake and secondly I did write it very clearly so I'll try again Razz

1.Refresh Searing Totem when there is less than 3 seconds remaining on the DoT.
2. Cast Lava Lash whenever it is off cool down.
3. Cast Unleash Elements followed by Flame Shock. (Only when less than 6 seconds left on Flame Shock DoT)
4. Stormstrike
5. Lightning Bolt with 5x Maelstrom Weapon
6. Earth Strike (If long than 6 seconds left on Flame Shock DoT left)

Spirit Wolves and Blood Fury are alternating so can start off with Spirit Wolves than 1 min later pop Blood Fury then a min later Spirit Wolves again, and so on. Or depending on the fight I will activate Spirit Wolves just before a blood-lust or time-warp so the wolves also benefit from that. Or they can simply be saved for a period of the fight where I need to increase my damage output.

If everything is on CD I have the choice to use lightning bolt with only 3/4 stacks of Maelstrom Weapon to stop delaying the cast of it with 5 Maelstrom weapon because my high priority abilities are off CD.

I open a fight with Unleash Elements, Flame Shock, dropping your totems, Lava Lash. and then Stormstrike.

Hello there... I will chuck in my 2 cents worth Razz

I'll say this much not a lot of people take kindly to critism when it comes to their character, I'm glad to see you have taken the pointers and changed for the better so far.
My main alt is an Enhancement Shaman and I can give some advice. A couple of things...

Your rotation is off by quite a bit, Enhancement doesn't have a set rotation at all, its all based on spell priority.

Storm Strike and Lava Lash with Searing Totem stacks are by far your hardest hitting abilities, so these abilities should be your highest prio. Your Mealstrom Wep x5 with Lightning Bolt, is next followed by Unleash Elements buff accompanied with Flame Shock. Unleash Elements if then off cooldown, then Earth Shock and Spirit Wolves.

There is a massive thread on Elitist Jerks (the link is here: EJ Enhancement Shaman Thread) Which goes through anything and everything about Enhancement.

Noxxic is also nice for simple advice on certain things and less complicating to follow: Noxxic - Enhancement Shaman Guide

Have a read through and get back to us.

Also you can make some fundemental changes to reforging on your gear to get the optimum stats avaible with your current gear.

Which can be found here > WoWReforge Set the stat weights at the bottom to:
Cap #1: <stat> Hit > exactly to > 1742
Cap #2: <stat> Exp > exactly to > 541

And hit optimise, you should see a massive improvement.

Cheers

//Ilion

Oh and btw, love the tit comment thrown back a Gash Smile Hes the biggest one of all

Wow I've read through those thread and just wow. I didn't realise how much I was off with my priorities. I have changed that now along with using WoWReforge(This website is amazing!!) and have noticed a huge difference in my dps. I really appreciate this even if you decide I'm not good enough but you have really helped me.

Thanks

Check this. Your expertise is still way off, this will fix it to exactly what you need.

Is it? it's 26/26 because I have 2 one handed axes, which gives me an extra 3 so and my unleashed rage gives me an extra 8, and I used WoW reforge to calculate it. Also that link doesn't work? :S
