A little bit history of my shaman and I,
I had a hard time choosing a character to level to 70 back in BC and never got to 70 because of that and missed out on a lot of fun experiences.
Come WOTLK and I leveled a DK to 60 and it did not feel right, I missed the healing spec! I knew I wanted a healer. So jump forward to the TOGC patch and I finally got one character to max level and started my journey!
Got into my first raid and completely butchered it haha, I was oom in about 30 seconds of the fight. A shaman in the pug that was healing with me whispered me and was not a complete dick but a big help. He sat afterwards in vent and gave me a TON of information and I took every note to heart. And it felt awesome to learn from a complete stranger and knowing they are taking their time to better one player in the PUG world to make pugs easier =).
I became really addicted to my shaman in ICC as far as going against the curb. I remember applying for my first 'real' raiding guild and they turned me down for using the Stoneclaw glyph back in ICC and I loved having my own personal little bubble. However I kept going strong on my shaman and spamming that Chain heal!.
I loved those times and in cata, I think we had a huge hiccup as a class because we had no real special umph like others had.
They got it right in MOP though =) I am loving the new outlook of shamans instead of CH bots and such =) I love managing the recall and HST for free manas =) Feels worth it once you get it flowing!
That is my story. What are some expieriences that helped shape you as a shaman in any spec =)
I would love some insight on how every one else feels about their Shaman, share a story and drop down a few good memories of the old times with your shaman =)
This thread is just to gather insight on how others feel, to rekindle my inner fire elemental again =).
PS* What would go great with the Scarlet Monastery shield from pre MOP? I have the tabard shield =)
