    Yes, Inspiration of Battle conflicts with a buff from Archon. They will have it up all the time, no need for you to bother with it, as it messes them up more than anything.

    insperations do not mess with archon stuff but if you have a bard/oracle then it will not stack....and keeping up wasting insignia is not worth it when you could be putting EoL or using another melee ability to get massive blow up for more dps

    Cool, the Kalert will not pop if another oracle is casting it, so I don't need to worry about that.
    All I need is a kalert to warn me that the bard buff is active, so I can drop Insignia from the rotation.

    this spec is inept....sorry but it is. I play it. The only thing that needs to be done is up the dmg by at least 15% the reason I say this is because I'm sitting in bis gear. the dmg meters don't lie. I am only pushing 250k if I'm lucky 300k , am I doing something wrong???

    Not sure if serious, but if you are really sitting in BiS gear and doing 300k, you are definitely doing something wrong.

    Shaman is a gateway drug to mediocre DPS for a class that does it poorly. Just say no.

    That said the spec here is still very solid. If you are pulling 300k in anything above dungeon gear you probably forgot to assign points in your legendary abilities.

    I have come to despise casting EOL every 3 seconds...

    I have switched to this
    https://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#n8hE/lkGBlhlkll4/Ye

    I rarely get to use shaman anywhere besides spe/lfr/irotp even then i am often tanking or healing in defilihealer and the ~1m dps is good enough to chart top the pugs.

    lengendary

    lob
    sanct
    icy
    deep freeze
    furious assault

    same macro as the 2-button build but add sanction.

    opener sanction ->icy x 2 then turns into a one button spec.

    Yes it is super lazy, but does basically the same dps and has better ranged dps, really i just like not having to consume 1/4th my cast for eol. Punnishing strike may or may not be a net dps gain haven't really tested or care enough to to test.

    With the cleric buffs gone live this spec is completely defunct, except maybe edge case purge build on golems

    My cleric is a bit under-geared but based on my testing, the spam macro should be changed such that massive blow is above glacial strike after the recent buff

    Top 2 Cleric Azranel parses on prancing turtle also show average MB hitting harder than Average Glacial.

    With the changes to Massive Blow and Brutalize, this should be a more potent option than IoB:

    https://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#...lkll4/!9g|XYXw

    Why:

    -> 5p Oracle loses 2.5% dmg by default.
    -> IoB is around 10-13% total dps
    -> <15% dmg done benefits MB direclty and causes a Brutalize which then gets effected by the <15% again, granting a <30% bonus on Brutalize, which is active almost all the time and may end up as top dmg%.
    -> Eventho you can overclock the IoB proccs with Glacial Shield and Vengeances, the Oracle dmg loss, IoB base damage and the bonus EoL proccs/ min from IoB fall short against buffed shaman swings.

    Vengeance, EoL and IoB gain the biggest damage update from the eternal weapon bonus, after that, higher into T2 gear, the eternal bonus (remains important) but loses a littlebit of it's weight. On c.a 75k SP+, Big hits scale better in raids.



    Change my mind.

    Like Pyro's Countdown, Frozen Wrath does get grayed out when already on a target, so it doesn't get cast again as long as it's active.

    what annoys me is everything that has a durational effect should behave in that way now that passives are reducing CDs to be shorter than durations and durations are being extended beyond CDs

    As far as I can remember Countdown can only be manipulated by the other abilities in the Pyromancer soultree created especially for Countdown.
