My brother is an avid WoW player and has played with me since Vanilla. But the last week he text me saying he was quitting because of the current state of Shamans and PvP. So my question is, is it really that bad? I try my best to help him, and suggest ways he could try improve but to be honest Shaman is not my speciality, I'm more of a Druid player (and the like for like comparisons usually end in my favour it seems). Plus he is certain that it is the game and Blizzard that are to blame, that Shamans have no survivability and need to hold another classes' hand in order to be viable, and that MoP should have revamped Shamans a lot more than it did. For the record I'm talking mostly about Elemental and Enhancement in PvP, not Resto.
To be fair, in my experience in PvP I don't usually see Shaman's as such a big a threat when compared with other classes.
