    I'd also like to see an expansion on lighting shield charges. Basically allow "fulmination" to apply to not just earth shock, but act as a modifier for certain abilities to change how they function or do damage. ie Thunderstorm can apply the fulmination damage (AE), Frost shock applies Thundersnow an AE dmg and snare, etc.
    The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities.

    or ... expand 'lava surge' functionality ? having several abilities/spells that can go off cd ?

I'd just like a little tracker under my character portrait like every other class with similar things to watch
    TellmeWhen is perfect for things like this. I know you don't want an addon and want it in the UI but this'll do the job

    I'd also love some sort of mechanic related to an execute.

    My wishlist would be: When striking an opponent at 20% health or lower with fulmination charges, those charges cause the elemental shaman to begin overloading (cue cool lighting graphic) and gain a buff where subsequent fulminations cause more damage. Basically every fulmination on the target will grant the shaman a buff that increases fulmination damage (as long as the target is sub 20% health).

    A really great buff to us(even now) would be when you hit 7 stacks of fulmination your shock cd would get reset.

    I love coming up with new things for shamans (enhancement mostly). Here is my eternal wish list:
    - Air and Water elemental totems. Water heals and Air does... something... buffs and/or debuff... I don't know just do it! make it just stand there or something XD
    - A main hand attack for enhancement. I would love a talent tier to focus on primal strike so that all specs have a use for it. Pandaria is the Kung Fu land, we should learn a new melee attack at least.
    - Totem Pole relic on our backs. I love the look of it.
    - More fun glyphs pls. I call dibs of coming up with Basic Camp Fire Totem. XD
    - A shield buff. Maybe frost brand or rock bitter can be placed on shields.
    - Spell animation and rename spirit walk to make it more windy.

    And a much more that I can't recall at the moment.

    I rarely post on Blizzard forums but every time they make a "tell us about your class" thread before an expansion I always post.

    This is would even fix the problem with sitting on 5-8 stacks for no reason at all.

    I would gief ma left nut for something like this. We are totemic warriors after all... Also I think Lava Lash needs new sound effect. Something like sound of explosion or Warriors' Execute.

    elemental: a spell that let's you spread all your shock-spells (flame/frost shock) on all targets in a 8 yard radius from those targets that are allready affected... (1min cd)

    restoration: a spell that let's you spread riptide on all raidmembers in a 30 yard radius from the initial buffed player (1 min cd)

    enhancement: passive - instead your lava lash spreading lava shock on maximum 4 surrounding targets; it now spreads on 8 targets (this would boost enh dps considerately)





    BETTER START EARLY ;-))
    Enhancement: Rename the spec to something that's not a synonym for "fluffer". "Spiritbinder", maybe. New ability: Bind spirit. Replaces ghost wolves. Bind the spirit of a beast, elemental, or humanoid. Creates a secondary spirit power that works like chi. Binding a wolf spirit replicates ghost wolf abilities, but doesn't require the barely-functional Pet UI of +3 Carpal Tunnel. Spirits get different abilities depending on creature type; add more spirits to your repertoire by killing creature types (we aren't Hunters), don't allow Shamans to bind spirits during combat, 'k next.

    Elemental: Oh, screw this. SHRUNKEN HEAD POWER. New ability: Shrunken head. Replaces 5.2's Shamanistic Rage, because ... why? Shrink the head of a humanoid and take one of its class abilities. Lasts while the head remains in your possession. Works like Druid Symbiosis: each class/spec grants a static ability that has a cooldown of 1-3 mins. You can have up to three shrunken heads at a time: one offense ("Raging Spirit"), one defense ("Protector Spirit"), and one utility/miscellaneous ("Spirit Guide"). You get a special spellbook tab for your shrunken head collection, and, if we really want to make this feel like Pokemon, we might force Shamans to farm NPCs for certain abilities. Example cooldowns could include Bone Shield (Blood DK), Icy Veins (Frost Mage), Mass Dispel on 1 min CD (Disc. Priest), etc. To balance out the diversity, some of these need to be less effective (e.g. Bone Shield with only 4 charges, Icy Veins with 15% spell haste) -- around 75% as effective as for the class from which they're taken.

    Resto: Not really sure that they need much, except maybe better mana management in long PVE fights.

    totems looks like wow dev's ... and your can kick them ;-) just kidding ;-)

    I would like to see them give searing totem some sort of mechanic for ele so that it feels more important. Perhaps introduce a new shock (Living Shock?), that when used on ally, perhaps if resto only, gives a bubble of some sort, and if used on an enemy, perhaps only for dps, places a healing absorb. The healing absorb could possibly do a short stun or silence when either the debuff is fully healed through or if it hasn't been healed through by the end. Just a few ideas off the top of my head.

    A mechanic like that would be PvP nightmare as resto. Resto has been a PvP power house historically and many of the changes done to the class lately have been to address some PvP issues with the spec.

    It term of "shocks" I think we got that covered.
    Fire - Flame Shock
    Earth - Earth Shock
    Ice - Frost Shock
    Air - Wind Shear
    Water - Riptide

    I wouldn´t minde a heal/dmg spell for resto (which could be riptide btw) but I don´t see it happening.

    Totems that don't get killed instantly please. Without having to waste a glyph spot.

    Better minor glyphs.

    Replace tier 3 talents with new ones that arn't horrible.

    Why? I see alot of people who request this. It's a unique thing to the spec (not a huge one though) that we don't benefit from crit in all ways.

    It mostly seems like people find that they are 'cheated' from a stat because they expect all stats to be pure win in all situations, and then see it as a way to get a free buff to Lava Burst. Make it scale with crit and nerf the damage?

    The reason you sit on max stacks is because you didn't handle your shock CDs properly. It's one of the skill caps to the spec that allows eg. me to be a better shaman than you. I hope they never, ever do that.

    Do you place your totems out in the open? And do your team mates not understand to protect important totems?

    chaos bolt is on long cd and LvB well with lucky procs or on ascendance it would be a bit op imo, it could ba aplaied to elemental blast but it have extra buff alredy so it could be overkill to
