    Default Discharges 3.0 Shaman Guide

    Build
    http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#lkGBlhlkll4/D8d/n8s

    Masteries
    Soul Collector
    Blessing of Penitence
    Faith's Freedom
    Diversify
    Punishing Strike

    Buffs
    Furious Assault (Applies all known Shaman Courage buffs)
    Glory of the Chosen
    Armor of Devotion

    Heart of the Frozen Sea (Will be overwritten in raids)

    These are the two different Weapon buffs and only one can be active at a time
    Vengeance of the Winter Storm (For ST DPS)
    Vengeance of the Primal North (For Aoe DPS)

    Macros
    Physical Macro (With Massive Blow)
    #show Massive Blow
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Massive Blow
    cast Punishing Strike
    cast Combined Effort
    cast Crushing Blow
    cast Fervent Strike

    Physical Macro #2 (Without Massive Blow)
    #show Crushing Blow
    cast Combined Effort
    cast Crushing Blow

    Non-Physical Macro
    #show Icy Blow
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Glacial Strike
    cast Jolt
    cast Icy Blow
    cast Ekkehard's Grasp
    You can take out Jolt from the Non-Phys macro if you want to manage it yourself. It's to ensure it is not on cooldown when you use your cd block.

    Rotation
    Opening Rotation With CD Block
    SH > FW > Phys Macro #2 > LH > Phys Macro #2 > Non-Phys Macro > (CD Block Begins)
    ROTN > DF > Phys Macro > Non-Phys Macro > ROS > Phys Macro > Non-Phys Macro
    (Repeat Phys Macro > Non-Phys Macro until SH falls off)

    Rotation After Opener & CD Block (Use this rotation until CD Block is up again)
    (Once SH has fallen off)
    SH > Non-Phys Macro > Phys Macro > LH > Phys Macro > Non-Phys Macro
    (Repeat Phys Macro > Non-Phys Macro until SH falls off)

    Aoe Rotation
    Apply Frozen Wrath on a target. Activate Vengeance of the Primal North and alternate Strike of the Maelstrom with Avalanche Strike.

    Tips

    1. Never use two physical attacks in a row. Your Frostbite talent increases the damage of your next physical attack when you use a nonphysical attack.

    2. With the new mastery changes disconnects aren't as bad as they used to be due to the mastery changes. We can now use Fervent Strike to consume the Frost Bite buff from our Non-Physical attack up to a 20m Range.

    3. When using Lightning Hammer, ensure the previous one has completed its final tick.

    4. Rush of Strength should be reserved for your cooldown block to ensure Massive Blow is available and not on cooldown.

    Why aren't you doing "MB -> GS/jolt -> Punishing" for your CD block?

    MB -> GS/jolt -> Punishing can result in a double tick of FW in you DF block and you donít clip a brutalize tic. I generally donít use this combination later in a fight as I try to line the RotN/DF block with a WG/PC and the double MB option allows you to respond faster if PS is on cooldown.

    My only comment on your rotation is you are pushing out SH and LH too early for two reasons: firstly, they are not benefiting from the forced crit of RotN; and secondly, both are not benefiting from full raid cooldowns which generally begin 3-4s into an encounter.

    You're doing it wrong if it takes 9 seconds to get everything properly debuffed.

    since most dps classes get a .5 second gcd reduction buff. might have worded it wrong in the begining but that is what i ment
