Is pretty much all that goes on in my head when a melee is swinging at me. There is no way of getting a melee off myself unless I try to bait them near a cliff or hill to blow them off. I have ghostwolf glyphed but it does fuck all tbh.
Earth bind only roots once and any melee knows to trinket that off the bat since ele shams have no other way to kite. I must be bad or ele shams have zero survivability.
I try to get myself in good positions, rolling with the group but there are 1v1s and it's extremely hard if it's melee. If it's warrior/dk no chance in Hell.
