Everyone likes their stat weights. The problem is that the way stat weights are used doesn’t actually match up with how they’re generated.

Taking another look at Elemental stats, in particular how each one affects damage output. Please note that all of the work I’ve put in on this is using the T19P SimCraft profile, which has 10303 Crit (31.44%), 5068 Haste (30.09%), 1578 Mastery (25.02%) and 0 Versatility (0%).
The table of analysis & results can be found here, which compares the base profile to subsequent sims where I add 1000 of each stat in turn to see how it affects damage.

This is going to be a collection post of Elemental spreadsheets I’ve put together, in order to have a single “go here” post for Discord. Please note if the Wowhead guide recommends something different, use that instead.

Shows Heating Up/Hot Streak as auras (with an outer timer ring).
Fire Blast charges (fire orbs) and timer (progress bar).
More description stuff coming soon. Note that the secondary bar will condense down to show either available or cooldown icons, not both at the same time

Important things to note:
Outer curve on the Arcane Missile auras indicate the time remaining on the buff stack
Dark blue bar is mana, purple icons are charges, light blue bar is the Evocation CD.
Arcane Barrage gives a glow when mana % is less than 1.25 * Evo CD / 90 for slow burn (this is part of my single phase “Slow Burn” rotation which can be found here and thanks to Satron again for LUA code help)
Other custom code includes the Words of Power bonus chance indicator.

As per usual, a common question is about the stat priority for Elemental and responses are either surprised or disappointed when the answer is “Crit”. More accurately, it’s as follows:
Int >> Crit > Haste ~= Versatility > Mastery
