Things you will probably want to look into…
a. AoE shaman build “Glyph of Chain Lightning”. With the increase in Lava beams damage with this glyph you will burn through multiple targets an average of 25% quicker as long as you hit five targets.
b. I’m assuming that with conductivity the player still needs to be standing in the Healing Rain just not the allies.
c. Removing Glyph of Purge should still make it spammable.
d. Unleashed Fury vs. Elemental Blast may end up being different now that Lava Burst is included in the Unleashed Fury. I for one will probably end up kicking Elemental Blast even though it’s a cool looking spell.
e. If you want to use Primal Earth totems make sure it’s glyphed and then maybe find a way to use the bonus spell on the pet bar if possible in your macro.
f. Remember to update your Flame Shock spell in your macro as the glyph won’t increase duration anymore.
