Fastest Shaman leveling spec?

Fastest Shaman leveling spec?

So I've talked around to a lot of Shamans and the fastest ones to level had basicly the same spec, and it's very different from the usual: "Go 2h Enhance at 30 and pick up WF".
So I got curious to what you Shaman theory nerds think is valid out of the information I've gathered and what is bogus.

The build we're looking at is:

The infamous Enhancement 1h shield flametounge, lightning shield, searing totemspamer leveler.

So the theory is solid, use a fast one hander, sub 1.8 speed if possile, so basicly a dagger and a shield with that, use searing totem and flame shock at the start of the fight and refresh Lightning shield as needed while wacking your mob down with auto attacks and flametounge procs.

The stats you are aiming for on your gear should be int>str>stam>agi>spir. Pieces with "of the Gorilla" gives int and str, which are great. If you are deciding between int and str items on the same slot you usualy go with int, but if you never run out of mana while spamming ele shield, totem and flame shock you will go with str.

The build itself goes on like such:
Step 1:

Step 2:

Step 3:

And your last 5 points goes into Weapon Mastery in the enhance tree.

So the question is, is this the fastest way to level or do you reckon 2h str/agi stack is faster?
