Even though Elemental has no love in Panda

or for that matter, neither does enhance. What is it with Shaman these days? Back in Cata my Enhance shaman was usually in the top 2 for dps. In Panda it's diabolical, actually diabolical doesn't cover it, embarrassment is more fitting. So I switched to Elemental full time and although the encounters are now easier and the dps is better, it's not where I think it should be. Ok, for AoE, yeah sure BALLISTIC! but who care about trash? Not me that's for sure, it's all about the deeps on the boss yes?

After reading all there is, totemspot, ej etc it looks like the blizz devs have lost there love if it ever existed in the first place. So yes, for the first time ever I'm blaming the devs.

To the Future!
I'm currently kitting out my Tankadin, got her to 90 and bought some gear off the ah to get her to 460 ilevel. Now I can enter LFR, I'm going for an avoidance build, seems more natural to me.

But before I shelve my shaman (no love from me either) I wanted to share my elemental shaman macro suite for those masochistic bastards out there who just can't let go, personally I'll keep an eye out for blueposts but meh.

The Macros!
 these macros trick wow into casting a lavaburst when it's off cd, just copy/paste/enjoy
lightning bolt spam with lava burst
/cast berserking
/castsequence reset=0.3 1,lightning bolt
/castsequence reset=0.3 lava burst
/script UIErrorsFrame:Clear()

chain lightning spam with lava burst
/cast berserking
/castsequence reset=0.3 1,Chain Lightning
/castsequence reset=0.3 lava burst
/script UIErrorsFrame:Clear()

this macro casts healing surge on my mouse over target if they can be helped or myself if no mouse over
#showtooltip healing surge
/cast [target=mouseover,help,nodead] Healing Surge; Healing Surge

same with chain heal

and the bog standard frog macro
#showtooltip Hex
/clearfocus [modifier:alt]
/focus [@focus,noexists]
/cast [@focus,exists][@target,exists] Hex
/y Casting Hex on %F

Have fun! I'll be back hopefully a lot sooner with some Tankadin news.
