The Main Swap

Aka “Why Bink is going to raid on a Mage in Legion rather than his Elemental Shaman”

Part One: Damage Meters

For as long as I can remember Elemental output has been somewhat behind the curve pretty much all the time, unless you look at specific AoE or Cleave boss fights like Hellfire Assault or Iskar. The times where I do well comparatively to everyone else I keep wondering that had I been on a different class that is “more popular” would I have performed significantly better?

Further Elemental Feedback

With the announcement today of the Legion launch date of August 30th it means we’ll probably stop focusing on mechanic stuff soon and go into numbers tuning. Here are some things I think need to be addressed before then.

Legion-ary Maths!

I’m working on a few things at the moment.


  • LavaCalcs is a basic rotation/stat weight calculator. I’m not going to go as far as evaluating every talent or set bonus, but you’ll be able to see the effects each has on your output.
  • Elemental Legion Math is my experimental sheet, mostly showing graphs for various things like Lava Burst frequency with various Lava Surge chances, Maelstrom generation vs Lightning Shield generaiton in Warlords, and Overload proc behaviour in small windows.
  • Guide work will start as we get further into beta, but this won’t be released until Legion actually goes live


What’s this, you say? Moonkin stuff? But aren’t you an Elemental Shaman Binks? Yes, but my “primary” alt has always been a Moonkin, and I’m going to keep my options open for mains this time around.

  • LunarCalcs is a work in progress, based off the Lava Calcs layout.
  • Guide? Maybe.
