    Default Prime Runeshaper Guide

    So this guide has all the information on how to use Level 50, Level 60 & Level 65 Runeshaper all in one place.
    Though warning mistakes could be present.



    Level 50
    Best Spec:
    44 Runeshaper, 17 Shaman, 5 Inquisitor


    Buffs:
    Rune Vessel
    Armor of Devotion
    Courage of the Bear
    Vengeance of the Winter Storm


    Starting Rotation:
    Seal of Pain > Rune of Power > Rune of Castigation
    Rune of Soul Binding > Runelord's Inscription > Inscribe Fate
    Runestrike x4 > Rune of Smiting


    Rotation:
    Keep Seal of Pain active on the enemy to refresh the duration cast Rune of Travail at 1 or 2 seconds.

    Build 3 stacks of Smiting Force before casting Rune of Smiting, or 2 if everything is on cooldown.
    Only cast Rune of Smiting when you have 4 stacks of Hasty Inscription which procs from casting Runestrike.

    Cast Rune of Castigation when Rapid Judgement is active, if already at 3 stacks of Smiting Force wait until you cast Rune of Smiting then Rune of Castigation.
    However if duration of Rapid Judgement is going to expire use Rune of Castigation.

    Use Rune of Power if at 0, 1 or 2 stacks of Smiting Force to reduce the cast time of Rune of Castigation to 0s.
    If Rapid Judgement is active do not use Rune of Power.

    Use Rune of Soul Binding if at 0, 1 or 2 stacks of Smiting Force or during movement phases, if known.

    If already at 3 stacks of Smiting Force and Inscribe Fate come off cooldown cast Runestrike instead; until you have 4 stacks of Hasty Inscription then cast Rune of Smiting and then use Inscribe Fate.

    Only use Rune of Travail when needing to refresh the duration of Seal of Pain.

    Either save Runelord's Inscription for movement phases, if known, or use when Runelord isn't active.
    However do not use Runelord's Inscription before using Rune of Soul Binding, use after.
    Runelord's Inscription and Runelord do not stack.

    For AoE damage channel Runefall under the group of enemies.


    Macros:
    #show Inscribe Fate
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast [ctrl] Runestrike
    cast Inscribe Fate
    cast Runestrike
    cast Rune of Travail
    cast Massive Blow
    cast Crushing Blow
    cast Ekkehard's Grasp
    cast Lightning Hammer

    #show Runefall
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @gtae Runefall
    cast Runefall

    I'm still debating this, but I'm pretty sure hardcasting Rune of Smiting with 3 smiting stacks and 0 Hasty stacks is more dps than spending the time casting 4 runestrikes before smiting. You'd have to get lucky and get a Runelord proc on #1 or #2 to make it worth.

    Runefall is so incredibly poor that you'll do more dps doing your single target rotation instead of channeling it.

    You should have @gtae macros for your greater runes as well to quickly place a movement speed field or a mana regen field for cleric/mage healers.

    So I am going to try out this spec and took me a bit cause i'm kinda noobish with roles I don't fully understand at first. The main question I have is actually about the Kalerts Code you have at the the bottom. I have seen this on pretty much every guide there is. I have Kalerts but I am still learning how to use it. My question is this... What is that code for exactly? Is that something that can be copied and pasted into Kalerts that will set up alerts?

    Any help you can provide would be appreciated since I am still learning this new role.

    Thanks.

    Yes, you import the code into the addon.

    So I've updated the guide in anticipation of balance changes in a few hours.
    • Rune of Travail no longer applies Legendary Seal of Vulnerability to the target.
    • Seal of Vulnerability no longer stacks with other player's Seal of Vulnerability.
    • Rune of Smiting has had it's nerf removed.
