    ****'s broken.
    Broken != "simplified" rotation ((nonphys=>phys) and not overriding dots)

    I don't mean it's broken because I made a simplified rotation with kalerts that munch's pet monkey could follow. I mean it's broken because it's a stupid easy spec to play even if you don't macro it and it's the top damage spec for clerics.

    A spec being broken does not equate to a simplified rotation. Every DPS spec (and even healing) can be made simplified but it doesn't mean it's "broken."

    It's. not. broken.

    I guess you don't understand what I mean by broken.

    Pulling top-tier dps should be a challenge. It should be something you have to strive and put in work for. Many of the current top tier damage specs (Reaver, Inq, Shammy to name a few) can be learned in 10 minutes, Mastered in an hour or less and pull top-tier damage. To me, That IS broken.

    I will give you Reaver (even that is a stretch if you do not manage your DoTs on any non-ST burn fights) [I am sure Riane can attest ], buuuut Inq and Shaman are not easy to pull top-tier damage with .

    WHAT?!?! bahahaha. Okay.

    Maybe compared to other rift specs, but compared to raiding in general (other games), those specs are stupid easy. Then again, we're in the day of raids being geared towards casuals so what can I expect.

    it's not broken and i don't think you have a really good concept of what that word means. the way you're playing it isn't optimal at all, in fact it's pretty terrible and no one with more than two fingers on either hand needs to play it this way. the "top damage spec for clerics" is shaman but it isn't done with three buttons.

    i did the same thing for 38/38nbsin (3 buttons) for a few players who don't dps often but wanted an easy spec to use that wasn't ranger, does that mean nbsin is broken?

    shaman is a very dynamic soul with it's priority system, especially in pvp, and throwing everything into a few macros is probably the worst way to take advantage of it's strengths.

    i honestly hope you don't think you're pulling "top tier damage" with three buttons as shaman. i would really love to see someone "master" shaman in an hour, rofl.

    This was created when I was bored, wanting to see how braindead i could make shaman. I know it's not the optimal rotation, but it's still pretty damn decent for 3 buttons. I'm discussing PvE uses of specs, not PvP.

    I don't, notice how at the bottom of my original post it says that I know it wont pull top deeps.

    Anyone who thinks mastering Shaman or Inquisitor is hard must have the IQ of a pickle.

    Than go ahead and explain us exactly what rotation to use with all the important things to know about both Shaman and Inquisitor if it's so easy.

    I can guarantee you that multiple Clerics and non-Clerics will correct you and show how far you are from having mastered both of those specs.

    The simple fact that you think mastering Shaman or Inquisitor is easy show you have no clues about what mastering a spec really means.

    Watching that caused physical pain.

    EDIT: Oh God, there is pvp at the end. The same 1 button Shaman spec in Blighted Antechamber. With backpedaling (as a melee?) and no consumables. I am done with the internet for now.
