- Wind Rush Totem
- Lightning Surge Totem
- Ancestral Swiftness
- Crashing Storm
- Earthen Spike
Tier 1 - Level 15
Windsong: Personally never used this talent. It does have its place in short burst windows where the effect is strong,
Tier 2 - Level 30
Rainfall: It actually does
Windrush Totem: Nice raid utility, your standard talent to take. It's slightly worse than Guardian Druid roar but more flexible. Has a long range so can be placed in ranged camps while Druids take care of melee.
Feral lunge: If there is no raid movement or healing
Tier 3 - Level 45
Lightning Surge Totem: Most commonly used, decent stun. Normally always take this. Nicely used on fights like Spellblade,
Earthgrab Totem: Unless there is a fight were adds can only be slowed and not stunned take this. However, there are likely to be better/passive slows out anyway.
Voodoo Totem: Same situation as above, not used unless a mass CC tactic is happening. So far not used yet during Legion.
Tier 4 - Level 60
Lightning Shield: Never used it. Doesn't seem very interactive. Kind of hoping it stays weak because it's the least fun of all talents.
Tier 5 - Level 75
Tempest: A strong talent, however, now with the change in 7.2.5 it's not the only option.

Tier 6 - Level 90
Crashing Storm: Most standard choice, especially with 4p.
Sundering: Burst aoe,
Tier 7 - Level 100
Boulderfist: The new
Earthen Spike: Now is finally a strong talent. It's amazing for
Doomhammer provides us with Doom Winds, a 1 min cd that gives all our auto attacks Windfury and the Windfury dmg is increased. This means outside of the burst dmg it also gives a lot of Maelstrom to play around with. This ability becomes a lot better with a trait I'll be talking about later.
Down here is the recommend route you take:
After filling out the Lashing Flames golden trait, simply start making the strongest traits 4/4.
Please note these ilvls are WEAPON

- Weapons of the Elements: 2.0 ilvl.
