Notes on the calculations.
Time between Lava Surge procs: 5*3/(1+H)
Ratio between Surge procs and normal Lava Burst use: (5*3/(1+H)/(8+2/(1+H)*1.5) The 1.5 cast time part is to account for the fact that while there is an 8 second cooldown, the time between casts without Surge will be 8+2/(1+H) or 8 plus the normal cast time. I multiply this by 1.5 to allow a half cast worth of time for player response times and the fact you'll be mid way through casting something when Lava
Reference post for a bunch of formulae I've worked out recently, which should make calculating stuff a bit easier.
c = crit chance
h = haste (1 + haste percentage)

Hi guys, I'm back.
Yes, I re-subbed recently, have found a new raiding guild to call home, and of course have a little mathy side project going. However, I don't have as much time as I'd like, which means getting the initial draft out for public viewing is taking some time. Rather than wait I figure I'll share what I'm working on here and see what others think.
One of the things I’ve always thought about was working out stat “inflection points”, ie: where one stat becomes

My last post here discussed some of the current amazing (CHAIN LIGHTNING) and clunky/lackluster (Earthquake, Unleashed Elements) spells at our disposal. After some time-off to tinker and see what Blizzard was going to change in 5.4, and doing some more digging around for some opinions into what’s broken, we can finally take a look at the buttons that infuriate Shaman everywhere. As always, I mainly raid on my Elemental and PvP on the side, so these are PvE views first and foremost.

After the changes to Lava Burst in 5.3 I've been looking at haste & mastery scaling, attempting to get some simple guidelines to how much of each you should have. Now, it's important to note that these are rough guidelines, and may differ from stat weights that you get with a particular gear set. The guidelines are also broken down into those with the Legendary Meta Gem (LMG) and those without. This excludes Mastery from raid buffs like Grace of Air
