Tier 14 Set Bonuses
Posted on MMO-Champion, current tier 14 set bonuses.
Item - Shaman T14 Elemental 2P Bonus - New: Increases the damage done by your Lightning Bolt spell by 5%.
Item - Shaman T14 Elemental 4P Bonus - New: Your Rolling Thunder ability now grants 2 Lightning Shield charges each time it triggers.
2P seems like a normal increase damage by x, however the 4P seems pretty nice, especially with the new change to LS in the most recent beta build as well.
I actually don't like the 4 piece bonus a whole lot. With still having linked shock cooldowns and losing Reverberation, it will be even harder to not waste lightning shield charges. It already feels like an eternity if you have to flame shock and get a lucky string of procs so you are sitting on 9 lightning shield charges for 5+ seconds. The bonus will make that happen more often.
The change to lightning shield in the latest build doesn't affect the set bonus. It makes lightning shield essentially start at 1 charge and stack to 7 plus always work as if you have the old glyph applied. Every shaman that used lightning shield had to use the glyph anyway, so this is really just a cleanup so we don't have to waste a minor glyph slot and doesn't change how it works. It didn't really make sense for it to start at 3 charges when it could never drop below 3 anyway.
The change is so that LS never expires from dropping to zero charges, same with Water Shield.
