    Default Easiest Spec

    Foreword:
    Pretty much I hate myself for even thinking of such an abomination but I thought that something like this might actually aid a large portion of players.

    The Idea behind 'The Easiest Spec' is to create something that can perform admirably following a set of constraints.
    • Never run out of Mana
    • Self healing for open world
    • Capable of interrupts
    • Decent Single target dps
      • No tracking of buffs/debuffs
    • Decent AoE dps
      • No tracking of buffs/debuffs
    Aside from the ST dps goal (which is achievable with a sham 1 button spec), this spec performs admirably in all other areas.
    Here Is the Spec
    The One Macro
    Code:
    #show Combined Effort
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Combined Effort
    cast Sanction Heretic
    cast Disintegration
    cast Punishing Strike
    cast Tyranny of Death
    cast Ravaging Darkness
    cast Dark Water
    cast Bound Fate
    cast Shadow's Touch
    cast Howling Death
    cast Shield of Oak
    cast Peace of the Forest
    Optional AoE Macro
    Code:
    #show Disintegration
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Tyranny of Death
    cast Ravaging Darkness
    cast Disintegration
    cast Bound Fate
    cast Shield of Oak
    cast Peace of the Forest
    Buffs:
    Armor of Devotion
    Condensed Obliteration

    Other Abilities:
    Summon: Greater Faerie Healer
    Notion Theft (interrupt)
    Grim Silence (interrupt/debilitate)
    Purge

    Single Target the Spec pulls about 170k dps.
    AoE the Spec pulls about 400k/550k dps (1button/optional AoE button)

    How to Play the spec:
    1. Apply Buffs
    2. Summon Pet
    3. Spam The one Macro
      1. Optional: When 2+ targets Spam the AoE macro
    4. Watch Netflix
    PS:
    This spec is only meant to make mindlessly playing the game easy. If participating in group content please be courteous to others and play specs better suited/that contribute more.

    Those macros though. Dark Water and bound fate being in the same macro confuzles me, as they are both instant and range with no cd. Disintegration and bound fate also makes my skin itchy as the idea is to spread tyranny with bound fate, then blow stuff to pieces with disintegration. Your macros make this spec no even use its abilities properly. Also ravaging should be on a separate button, as wasting potential heals in a farming build (a very poor one) will get you killed. I get the idea of 'mindless' but 1 button shammy with farie passive is a lot more effective then this in aoe, heals, and st dps.

    Dark Water requires facing target
    Bound Fate fires facing away.
    Which is exactly why it's macro'd that way.

    As to the rest, as said before it's for one button easy. You can optimize shaman by managing abilities, and you can optimize this spec doing the same.

    Ravaging Darkness's healing capability is mediocre at best, it's only in there as a higher damage ability/mana regen. Most healing comes from Greater Faerie Healer and Legendary Faerie healer. If you think Ravaging darkness will have any real impact on survivability...

    As for Disintigration, If it was after bound fate then it'd never go off.
    • Can't Have Ideal ability fire sequence and one button after all
    It's the same with most any spec, mash it into one button and it suffers. The catch point of this though is that it only actually makes a difference for the first Disintigration. After that the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, Nth Disintigrations will (mostly likely) all occur after Tyranny is on all targets.


    Never claimed it to be optimal (in fact i'm sure I said it wasn't).

    1button shaman still will out perform this with less brain processing in every aspect. At the end of the day do you, but this is a hot mess of a one button.

    Shaman requires a player to be melee. This spec does not. Hence why it's easier to play.
