We only downed Shannox this week due to some technical difficulties with the bosses (and on the first night one of our tanks locking his keys in his car at work). This fight is fairly easy with the strat we used. We killed rageface first, then dpsed Shannox down to ~40% (as our tank and residual dots were doing a number to his hp, you can go to 35% as he doesn't enrage the dog until 30%) then killed riplimb then shannox. As an ele shaman a few things to note:
  • When killing rageface watch the timer on his face rage ability and try to have a LvB or a 9 stack fulmination available to hit him with as he doesn't stop until he takes a single attack that does 30k or more
  • if rageface is targetting you, try to drag him through a immolation trap if it isn't on cooldown (this increases his damage taken)
  • don't stand in any traps yourself (watch under your feet)
  • make sure you switch your searing totem off a target when stop dps is called on this (your totem is supposed to prioritize the target with flame shock on it that is closest to the target).

Don't forget, the boots he drops are your BiS until you can get crafted ones made and the ring is good to hold you over until you have the valor points to get it *which will be a while if you go with tier gear first*


I just wanted to say I finally found a guild to call home after several server xfers under false pretenses and guild drama. I'm currently with a raid team where I don't have an issue with anyone on the raid team and everyone gets along great (just don't get your pets near the gnome). I like it here in Redux (seafoam rawr) and can't think of any team of raiders I'd rather run with. They're great fun and I enjoy logging on to raid.

Glyph of Unleashed Lightning

by now everyone should have had a chance to pick this up and replace thier flame shock glyph with it. If you aren't careful however, this glyph can hurt your dps AND your ability to interrupt targets due to the fact that just jumping will not cancel the lightning bolt. Macro time!

Windshear macro:

#showtooltip Wind Shear
/clearfocus [target=focus,dead]
/cast [target=focus,exists,harm] Wind Shear
/cast Wind Shear

What it does: it will cancel your cast, check your focus target and a)remove focus if target is dead b) cast windshear ion focus if the target is hostile c) if you have no focus or your focus is friendly, it will cast windshear on your current target. the showtooltip line is so it shows wind shear icon.

to my knowledge there is no effective way without addons to do a successful stopcast macro with Lava Burst because if GCD is still active it will not cast the LvB and just spamming it will keep interrupting your LvB however you can do one for flame shock to ensure you don't let it fall

#showtooltip Flame Shock
/cast Flame Shock
