Legion Shaman
« on: March 30, 2017, 08:10:36 AM »
We didn't have a Legion Shaman thread and there's been a change to how our summons work in 7.2.

Per blue post
The following pet summon spells will now summon the pet and immediately aggro your current targeted enemy if you have an enemy targeted. If you do not have an enemy targeted, it will summon the pet near you in passive mode:

Feral Sprits (leap)
Artifact Feral Spirits (leap)

Fire Elemental (ranged)
Earth Elemental (charge)
Storm Elemental (ranged)

Primal Fire Elemental (ranged)
Primal Earth Elemental (charge)
Primal Storm Elemental (ranged)

We expect that there are some specific situations where a player might want to have a target but still cast their summon without having it attack that target (such as a fire elemental being summoned right before the pull). To accomplish this, you should be able to make a targeting macro (/cast [@player] Fire Elemental).

7.2 also gave elementals a 30 yd target range instead of 40 yd, but this is a known issue/bug that they're going to fix.

If you're going to summon your elemental pre-pull, please summon responsibly.

Wait, does this mean that shaman can now wipe the raid as efficiently as hunters? Like, if you have the boss targeted when you summon a thing is the thing just going to charge across the room and aggro it?

That's... hiLARious. I completely blame PvP for that one.
