    Default 4.3 - EASY SHAMAN RAID SPEC - 2 BUTTONS

    ***UPDATED 6/3/18 - post stacking group nerfs***

    For those cleric alts and fellas that want an easy but competitive raid spec, here you go. It's not too far behind a proper played shaman spec. Just FYI, cleric eternal helps IMMENSELY with this spec!

    SPEC:

    SPAM MACRO:

    #show Deep Freeze
    cast Frozen Wrath
    cast Deep Freeze
    cast Glacial Strike
    cast Massive Blow
    cast Jolt
    cast Punishing Strike
    cast Icy Blow
    cast Lightning Hammer
    cast Glacial Shield
    cast Rage of the North
    cast Rush of Strength
    cast Break Free

    ROTATION:

    Start of fight: Fervent Strike - Icy Blow x2 (gets your +elemental damage buffs up)

    Rest of Fight: Spam macro x5 - Eruption of Life x1

    So you're just rotating doing 5x spam macro and 1x Eruption of life. This allows for maximizing your Eruption of life damage which does about the same dmg as glacial strike, so it's one your highest hitting abilities.

    And also every 60 seconds cast Fervent Strike to keep that buff up. (Use Kalert to track).

    DUMMY PARSE:(with final eternal, feast, sigils, weaponstone, vial)

    4.021M (Eruption of life) = 18.41M (Glacial Strike)?

    Life Surge is also included as Eruption of Life damage.

    Glacial strike is used every 8 seconds, Eruption of life every 6 seconds. So if you take Glacial Strike's damage 125.4k and multiply by 1.3333 (8seconds/6seconds) then you get 167k. They are pretty close damage wise.

    I did 4k more dps total with legendary IoB over losing 5% crit and 2.5% dps and legendary BoJ from inquisitor... and some of it may just be RNG. I'm not convinced it's better but either spec will do about the same dps.

    Insignia of Blood currently procs more often, what also results into more procs of the Eruption of Life. Cause of this it will likely deal more damage, especially with a fully upgraded weapon

    i didnt mean it in such away by any means. i was just giving an answer on why it was likely doing more damage . And thanks for writing this guide

    I'll post a screenshot with the swings of both abilities showing that it procs more often. I'm in by no means interested in calculating what's better. P.S. because it procs more often you will have to refresh EoL more often, making the 'rotation' a bit more unreliable.

    Yea is there no igcd on L. IoB? I thought there was when we got all those nerfs so many months ago.

    Refreshing EoL more often is a good thing since it does so much damage. Will test some later today.

    Default Why break free at the end?

    Thank you for this guide. Why break free at the end of the spammer? Later.

    So, cleric inq is now outdated or is it possible to still play this in raid and pull decent dps?
