Warlords of Draenor – Elemental Summary July 1st

I’ll try to do monthly updates of things in the Beta for Elemental. If I’ve missed anything leave a comment and I’ll add it in.

Yes, there is currently a problem with Elemental mana use after the removal of Rolling Thunder (60% proc chance, returns 2% mana) and Elemental Focus (25% cost reduction via the Clearcasting buff), which should be fixed soon.

Echo of the Elements vs Lava Surge
There have been a number of posts on the interaction of these two buffs. Currently Echo is being consumed first, making the current Lava Burst not trigger the cooldown, then Surge is consumed on the next cast, effectively making it look like two spell casts at once. Echo will need further updates anyway, as a few of the spells it works with have been removed (eg: Earthquake).

Area of Effect Damage
With the removal of Earthquake the question is how Chain Lightning will fill all our AoE needs, or will we stay with the cleave DPS niche. The Chain Lightning Perk (20% bonus to EQ per CL hit) also needs to be re-worked after this spell removal.

Totemic Recall… recalled
Totemic Recall was removed with the comment that totems would no longer proximity agro mobs. Celestalon as since commented in a tweet that it will be reinstated.

PS: To anyone asking why I put a post with a July 1st date out on June 30th, I’m in New Zealand which is GMT+12, so it actually is the 1st of July here.

    They should take recall off the gcd if they are bringing it back. you can macro totem removal with no gcd, so it’s really just unfair to new players to have recall punish you for hitting it.
