[2.4] The Shaman Tank (Aegis/Vortex ci)
1) equilibrium works pretty much like you said. Lightning damage reduces resists for cold AND fire. Vortex initial hit does fire damage - which can ignite. But because it is fire, it raises the fire resist, but still lowers the cold resist. The DoT second part does cold damage. After hitting with vortex, orb of storms or tempest shield can hit with lightning again and reduce the fire resist, increasing the burn damage from ignite.
2) if you can get 10 grand spectrums, I would get those before the claw. Spell damage is not as usefull because it does NOT increase ignite damage (whereas elemental damage applies to the INITIAL hit, THEN the ignite as well).
