    being able to choose ascendant form?

    It would be nice if we could choose our ascendant form wouldn't you all agree? Would give shamans some more flexibility. I see it working well for ele and resto. Double the power of healing surges in pvp for ele as water ascendant and gives resto a nice dps alternative with fire ascendant should they need it.

    Well it does not seem fair that Shamans would have to sacrifice a DPS cooldown to perform healing, when Druids have lvl90 Heart of the Wild talent that can do the same while not wasting a DPS cd.

    That's wrong actually, it would word exactly like Heart of the wild in the way that when a druid uses heart of the wild, it can be a DPS cooldown because of how it works, or it can help with healing, so i think the OP means it in that way, that you can choose to heal or damage, which is the same as druids because using HoTW can very often be a DPS boost

    Edit, My thoughts, I'm not sure i would like it so much, the two classes i play at 90 are Druid and Shaman and has been the two I've played end game for many years, I think it would be nice to have a more reliable assistance technique for Shamans to heal, as they can Tank for a short time, but healing is very limited

    Yeah and without shamanism, chain casting lava burst wouldn't really be strong for resto or enhance but a range dps alternative. Ele only gets healing surge anyway, water ascendant won't be so overpowered. Though, I'm sure such an obvious idea has already been submitted to the wow devs but they probably turned it down for some reason.

    All I want changed about Ascendancy is an added glyph that does something about the appearance hah.

    Amazing sig, done by mighty Lokann

    I don't think he meant so much that you'd be losing an ability that can be used as a DPS cooldown, more that if this also boosts your healing then Shamans might be expected to use their burst CD for healing instead of doing damage.
    Even a single heal during Ascendance can be a pretty big hit to your DPS, it's not something most people would want to do but is something Raid Leaders would ask for if it were an option.

    I like ascendance as it...kinda wish the duration was just an itty bitty longer for resto since our spell casts can be rather slow. (seems fine as ele) I don't know about enhance.

    OH OH and I want a glyph to change the appearance so I actually look like an elemental >> I'm tried of looking like a nerdy power ranger

    The ascendants should be gender appropriate at least....my female Pandaren feels odd being a giant manly ascendant.

    And I would love a minor glyph that would make it so no transformation takes place when Ascendance is cast.

    For PvP, ya know.

However, by lining up CC then all popping Heart of the Wild they won every single match and the ability was nerfed the next Tuesday maintenance.

    What would happen if your suggestion is followed is that a triple Resto Shaman team would repeat the same strategy, only with triple Ascendence DPS to line up their kills.
    1. Shaman cc is horrible
    2. If you think lava burst spam is overpowered you are delusional. It tickles players in pvp gear.
