    Anyone have a tweak to have the mod take into account the new Echo of the Elements Lava Burst charges?

    Is there way to add Liquid Magma and Fire Elemental in the suggested icon (like searing totem)?

    Hey taracque, after deciding to level my ele shaman again i was excited to use ur addon again, but somehow it doesnt add in earth shock AT ALL, i can be in combat for 5minutes with 20 stacks and i will not see earth shock in the rotation. Also i was curious if there is a way to remove the big grey box around the priority queue system.

    Hey, loving Elementarist, thanks for making it!  I only have one suggestion:
    You know how when you cast a spell, the icon of the next spell shows a visual representation of the GCD counting down?  If you could make it so that it instead shows the player's cast timer when applicable, like when casting Lava Burst or Lightning Bolt, that would be great.  

    So far that's been my only qualm with Elementarist.  I use similar addons for my Paladin and Warrior, and I'm used to watching the GCD spin down on the next spell and hitting it the moment the GCD is done (because those classes don't have cast timed spells for DPS or Tanking).  I keep making goofs in my rotation because I see the GCD from Lava Burst finish, but the spell is still being cast.

    Hello! How can i disable numbers under icon?

  • #338

    Which numbers?

  • #341


  • #340

    The upper one is the actual DPS on your current target, the other is the Threat percentage. I'll add an option to turn those off.

  • #339

    Cant disable threat numbers, and others, dont know what is it. Maybe amount of damage? Numbers on last screenshot

    Hey there! 

    First off; LOVE your addon. It's just great. ^^ I've got one problem though... I'm switching alot of talents both in pve and pvp depending on the encounter and as such I have noticed that Unleash Flame only shows up on the rotation whenever I've chosen Unleashed fury in tier 6 of the talent tree, which I find both strange and unfortunate. Even base unleash flame gives a 30% dmg increase on next fire spell, so to me it's a cast-on-cd spell whether or not ive specced into the boosted version of it. Is it possible to implement this - or better yet - post a reply here as to what needs to be changed in the LUA file so that it always shows as part of the rotation? :-) Would be greatly appreciated! 

    Keep up the good work and keep them totems rollin' 

  • #333

    It not normally considered optimal rotation to use Unleash Flame without Unleash Fury. 
    If you want it in the rotation irrespective of talent choices you would remark out (put   ---  before the line) line number 112 AND 119 in  local copy of the  \Interface\addons\Elementarist\modules\elemental.lua    This would remove the check for the Unleash Fury talent



  • #336

    Thank you for quick response! 

    Based on your reply I looked into unleash flame, and to my surprise SimulationCraft too has a conditional to check if the talent is active or not with regards to the use of Unleash Flame. I just started playing elemental, but I figured any increase in dmg must be a good thing and a 30% inc. to lava burst at that should be worth the global, but I guess I am mistaken. Although, seriously, I`m having trouble wrapping my mind around it.. ^^ I guess then that Unleash Flame's only use, in situations where it is not specced, is as a backup for whenever you need the tiny boost in speed. 

    Anyways, thanks again!

    Moving the Misc Icon

    I wanted to move the Misc Icon created (the one that shows Accendance, Totems, Elemental Matery etc).

    If you would like to aswell you can find the lines that need changing at line 557 in Ele_GUI.lau file.  This edit puts the Misc Icon to the left of the Next Icons rather than below.
    displayFrame_misc:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", -50, -10)


    Just remember any changes you make locally will be overwritten by the master copy from the web  on the next update you download.

    In 3.3.7 I've put 3 new layouts, hopefully one of them will makes you happy.
