How do you think that will be the Elemental Shaman PVE in patch 5.2? Do you think that finally we will increase our dps to be on a par with other DPS as Moonkin? Or just ... Will they enhance our DPS DPS to be a cost-effective compared to other classes?

Greetings from Spain, excuse my English

No significant changes. Apparently elemental is fine in PvE.

ele shamans are no where near fine in PVE, out dps is horrible compared to other classes. heck its horrible compared to any classes dps.
on the smicrafts we're ranking almost at the very bottom of the dmg meters (also in actual fights)

also you buffing frost mages and monks? really blizz? monks and mages are at the very top of both simcraft and real dps if anything they need nerfs. but as usual mages are stuck on that buff button i guess

Yeah those 30k lava burst crits are so insane atm, if they buff us any more, we'd be living gods of pvp.

That post was a month ago, there have been a few buffs since then on the PTR including chain lightning no longer losing damage with each jump. Ascendance lava beam now gains damage per jump. Lightning bolt damage for elemental has been upped from 50% to 70& increased damage on the shamanism passive. And the elemental focus procs now increase damage by 15% instead of the current 10%. It might not be enough but its still a good start. Maybe we'll see more before 5.2 goes live.

I tried ele a fair bit on the ptr they are looking strong certainly a long way ahead of the likes of shadow which badly need help.

shadows ain't looking 2 bad either.
actually dps balance looks much better in 5.2 than it does currently, of course there's always room for improvement. But we'll know better when it hits the live.

No big game changers in 5.2 for us except shamanistic rage, and tbh that is a really nice move. Shame they did not reverse the totem change they applied in 5.1. Other then that, i am looking forward to some nice cleave fights :)

@Chuckler, you are probably doing it wrong

You know for a class that needed changes the most aside maybe from rogue (but they've always got what they wanted because they all whine how they're not FOTM anymore) we sure got !@#$ all of anything intresting. Aside from a very bland defensive that now comes with yet another mandatory glyph for ele...

There's lots of good changes to Shaman right there. We should be alright until higher gear levels if we still scale as badly.
