So recently, I've taken my Shammy off my self. I am currently level 62 and have not done much since level 20. I am currently running with a Ele/Resto OS build. I've not really given Heals much of a chance since I thought I would wait till level 70 and in PVP gear before I switch to Resto in BGs.
But I've been running as Ele as its pretty terrible when it comes to survivability. I mean alright you have your totems and all but outside Thunderstorm you don't really have anything. You get 2 shot by all melee when they get near you and there is no way to out run them. It probably is just me cause I am so use to playing my mage and having 2 roots and a blink every 15 sec.
I know its only level 62 and all but even then. Is this how Ele PVP is at level 85? I can rarely stay up long enough to do much damage. Only the last 2 WSG and AV where I literally tore the charts apart only cause people were really stupid to not focus me and I had people peeling of me.
WSG I simply hid in a bush and kept spamming. AV was the most fun I've had in a veryyy long time in this game. It was so close and I couldn't imagine it happening at level 60-64. We were practically losing for the first 15 mins because the Horde decided to turtle and they managed to get down Stonehearth bunker but we managed to cap the Iceblood GY and hold the lines at TP. Before that we managed to get down the East Tower and late in the game after trailing by over 100 points managed to get 2 towers (TP and IB) down. We simply camped TP and I just kept spamming Chain Lighting. I had about 40KBs and 2 deaths and 400K total damage. Even got the achievement for it.
I just find that once you are focused you don't really have much of a chance as ele. Rest of the time you can dish out really crazy damage.
