On single targets I use Bolts only ofc. Some say Chains are better on 3 and more that even on 2 targets you should keep using Bolts.
festergut10hc neck is better as it gives hit and more AP with a good red socket instead of sindragosa25hc neck. In BiS gear you end up gemming hit and expertise either. Herkuml is BiS trinket with sts exactly for haste and speed reasons. with bizzuri totem, frost dk in raid, flurry stacked and some retribution paladin in raid giving haste you should be very close to 1.0.
Enhancing Totems are a better solution instead of mana talents. But I´m selfish focusing on my own dps with more shocks used :D
For raid ofc more str and agility is better but for enhancement hardly since you end up with so much crit that you dont need more agility.

here for calculation of crit cap: Last "9" is from elemental devastation talent
/script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("Crit cap :"..100-(27-(GetCombatRatingBonus(6)+6))-24)
/script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("Crit cap with ED :"..100-(27-(GetCombatRatingBonus(6)+6))-24-9)

But you are right non-selfish shaman should use enhancing totems since we skip improved windfury talents just because there are frost dks. There is also one thing why enhancement might not want to use strength of earth totem. Since its stationary totem it has limited range of buff and once players get out of its range (can happen rarely in ICC or RS but it can), players lose strength of earth totem buff...Thatswhy sometimes I dont even use it and I let dks keep horn.
I'm thinking about the attack power and spell power gained from it, I mean. Not just the crit from Agi. Still not better than shock dps? (Low priority on my list, how high priority are shocks in your addon?)
That's awesome how you can get 1.00. It must look really nice in your character display.

Um, so you don't use TaJ?

Bashing the keyboard randomly also works fine I guess.

Maybe ye...I mean the core talents will remain no matter what. The question is how many mana saving times can you exclude and where else to place those points. So this is matter of preferance. Flame Shock for ex consumes a lot of mana so I guess Shamanistic Focus will be needed after all. I might try taking enhancing totems but often I was told not to use it as once player gets out of totem range you lose the buff, while dk´s horn is kept + dks will always keep it on. Guess it´s question of preferance. What bothers me more is pet scaling. This means wolves are not that epic dps burst as it should be. Bis enhancement has like idk 14k AP or more...translated to your pet with glyph should be a huge dps burst. I might try glyph of Ligh Shield instead of it as you propose.

From the sources I trust sts hc+herkuml was set to BiS. i keep taj hc until i get sts in next decade :D

The problem with proper prio list...it differs:
Just some:

http://forum.warmane.com/showthread.php ... Shaman-DPS

They more or less agree on the same prio list. But I said screw this, I downloaded EnhaPrio and I follow it. Not only I have more time to watch encounter but my dps even slightly improved since it calculates the remaining buff, debuff and it sets your prio order for next 2-3 buttons. I personally dont think human brain can evaluate the timer on flame shock, number of Light Shields, stormstrike debuff on target, maelstorm x5 proc, magma totem timer etc at the same time and follow tactics. I trust addon´s algorithm...

Rip Ekrem :( he was my light in dark times. Check my screenshot below, btw. It might not be what you're looking for, but it shows a bunch of cool stuff.
Lol, this guy has Lightning Shield AFTER Fire Nova on his list for no reason? Very cluttered guide as well...

I do that with the help of power auras - here's what my UI looks like in combat http://postimg.org/image/czkoh0meh/ Old screenie, no TaJ :.P -- Click full size so you can see everything clearly. Everything I need to watch is close to one another, lol.
