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.

The Right Icon Set – talented cooldown abilities
The Left Icon Set – buffs, defensive abilities and other stuff
Maelstrom predictor bar – with thanks to Cyous & Satron for custom coding work
Secondary abilities – more utility & totem spells

Stat weights. Those things that people ask for all the time in the assumption that they’re a magical set of numbers that will tell you how to get to the best gear set ever.
Hint: they’re not.
I’ve decided that a better approach may be to take a bit from Stat Weights, a bit from the continual “stat cap” questions, and approach this from a “What are people actually wanting these numbers for in the first place?” direction.
Lets tackle that last bit first: What’s the purpose of Stat Weights? Read more of this post
