    This spec is doing great for me at just 69. Mobs are falling over and i'm doing 250-300K dps at this level with crap gear. Can't wait to hit 70 and get geared. Wish you would post a good AOE spec also. Thanks

    This spec will most likely get nerfed soon.

    Default One Button

    First of all thanks to OP. This build made me like Primalist. I made some changes so as to make it one Button.

    First, I just took out Scald once I realized it accounted for very little of my total damage.

    Second I added Savage Blow, Reliquary of rage, and Squall to the Spam Macro

    Third, click the hell out of the spam macro.

    Results: 1mil damage with EOA gear, 2nd to the last upgrade on EW, BIS trinket, earrings, neck, and rings.

    That's not a very good idea, once you get Legendary Scald. As the tooltip says, it will add 15% (30% with stacks) more damage from all your non-Maelstrom elemental damage. As you almost exclusively deal non-Maelstrom elemental damage with this build, adding 30% from LegScald is a LOT, even if Scald itself doesn't do much. You're casting it to buff everything else, not to actually do damage.

    Adding Squall to the macro is not a good idea. The debuff on target lasts one full minute so there is no reason to pull it to you every 8 seconds, especially if it's already in range. This is a waste of a global cooldown, so I would remove it for better dps.
    Similarly with Savage Blow, casting it every 8 seconds when the full duration is 12 is also a damage loss. Yes, macro makes it easier to handle it, but this one would be better off not in the macro.

    Squall is ogcd so youre not wasting a gcd. You still should not macro it because you don't want to accidentally pull it out of range of other players or the Tank especially.

    Default I appreciate the feedback

    I agree with both of you...

    @Ambrodel - I knew I was taking a DPS loss my point was the DPS I was losing was a small tradeoff for the convenience of having to push only 1 button, however, I didn't know I was losing more than the squall DPS. Thanks for pointing this out.

    As for Savage Blow, I will leave it on the macro because I find it very distracting trying to keep up with it, I sometimes miss the timer causing the 2 stacks to fall off. I wish it aligned better with Squall or lasted a bit longer.

    @Kelyk
    I agree with you. In raids, it tends to work out fine since almost all mobs are immuned, but it DRRs it becomes a liability, I end up pulling things I didn't intend getting the raid mad at me.
