    Enhance MOP 3v3 games! Enh doesn't suck!!



    There's been a lot of doubters about enhance's viability this xpac, so I thought I'd put together a video of some of the 3s I've queued this season.



    Bumping this up with a new video. More games with friends, some games against 2200+/arena master/ex glad opponents though. Mainly wanted to post this because so many people are still insisting enhance is a garbage spec and a waste of time even though so many people are playing it in glad range right now. our survivability is on par with that of a DKs, i dont see what the big deal is.

    Very nice, although I would like to see a high rated enhancer that is not running with a warrior. Nearly every high rated enhancement shaman I have seen seems to have a warrior in the team :-)

Not high mmr yet, been team hopping a lot waiting on my old partners, and RBGing on my ele (also a viable spec!!!) for weapons, but opponents are around 1800. I played a few different comps, and also a few games on the tournament realm (the enh/rogue/priest games, so those games are full gear). I will be playing enh/warr/rdruid with my old team, so higher rated content coming soon!

    I want to do a video in the future showcasing some of the cool things you can do with capacitor totem, and also ways to use the relocation talent if people would be into that.
    So sad that above 2k it's get shitter then shit in rbg as ele as peopel actually can think and global the ele after astral shift.

    If you suddenly started talking about ele, ok, I can't say anything cause this isn't what I play...

    But on an enhance point of view, I came here to talk you don't need to be "carried" for a warrior or hunter. I was playing yesterday on 2200+ (mmr) with a friend DK... ¬¬

    Every BM Hunter + x combo is viable. Nothing new.

    But 1800 is not that high.

    yea shaman is perfectly fine i wonder why when you are fighting against any team with shaman only thing that can be heard is "-what we kill? - shaman !!! shaman !!!"
    tbh i dont think enh is a trash just some good survivability cd and some realiable gap closer would be something that would make game less frustrating for most of the time

    It's not that enhancement is bad, per se, it's that it just isn't as good.

    Clearly it's capable of being played at high ratings, but it's more of an uphill battle than with, say, a feral.

    Survivability IS a problem, and if you disagree you're in denial. I was playing turbocleave with a multi-R1 healer earlier this season at 2300 MMR and about 50% of the games I'd die and there was nothing either of us could do about it. The healer eventually stopped queuing with us because, in his words, "You don't understand, I'm absolutely spamming heals on you and you're still dying." Astral shift is near useless, especially considering most of the time we're getting our asses kicked we're stunned anyway. Our burst is also probably more easily negated than most other specs with big burst CDs (can be parried like a melee attack and absorbed/resisted like a magic attack?), but that's a different issue altogether.

    Props to you for continuing to play it (I have continued as well) and succeeding, but let's not pretend that it doesn't still fall short of many other specs.

    I uploaded another random games video on my channel. Gonna get my other enhance t2, MMR around 2100 and rating at 2140ish.
