    I really like this addon.  The only problem I have is getting Thunderstorm to display in the frame.  It seems like none of the spell hints are displaying in the bottom right part of the frame where they should be.

    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but the problem persists.

    Any suggestions?

  • #164

    Try v2.1.3 hopefully it fixes your problem.

    Btw. on lower right panel the spells are displayed in the following order:

    1. Wind Shear if Threat > 80% or the target is channels a spell
    2. Thunderstorm if Mana < 70%
    3. Earthquake if enabled in config
    4. Fire Nova if more than 4 enemies are detected and target has FS debuff on it.
    5. Purge if purgeable buff detected on target
    6. Chain Lightnin if more than 2 enemies are detected

    Really like this mod, it's helped my dps a fair bit while I get used to the mechanics of Elemental Shaman.

    I am having a few problems though. One is that it doesn't have the fire totems on the priority list, I'm having to use other mods to track that. The second problem is that it's letting me let Flame Shock run out before telling me to apply it again. I thought to get optimal DPS you need to 'clip' Flame Shock just before the last tick?

    It's also not warning me about missing buffs like Lightning Shield, Wrath of Air or Flametongue Weapon.

  • #160

    It should show all of those, but not in the spell rotation.
    Flametongue weapon
    Lightning Shield
    Totems (Searing, Wrath)
    Elemental Mastery

    are displayed in the lower left part of the window. (in the abover order)

    Wind Shear
    Fire Nova
    Chain Lightning

    are displayed in lower right part of the Elementarist frame.

    Flameshock is suggested just once it's expired from the target. I'll test it with SimCraft if clipping is better than this, if so I'll modifty the rotation in Elementarist.

    Ok, the bits on the bottom left and right are showing up now - they weren't before. I just had to remove the mod, remove the settings and download again. So that was a bit wierd.


  • #154

    Sometimes this addon is still suggesting letting Flame Shock fall off in favour of an Earth Shock, is this happening for anyone else?

  • #155

    Yes this is known bug in the current version. I'm working on the fix, will be ready in 1 or 2 days.

  • #158

    It should be fixed in 2.1.1 which is approved by Curse, so you can test it right now.

  • #156

    Is there an updated ETA on this fix? I am eagerly awaiting more news about it Wink

  • #153

    Earth Shock if Lightning Shield has 9 charges, or it has 7 or more, and FS debuff has more time than FS cooldown

    For some odd reason it doesn't seem to work. because sometimes its picking FS at 7 > then LvB.
