    swaping to enhance pvp in 5.2

    I currently use an unholy DK and a feral druid for pvp, also i only pvp no pve. I play casual and have achived a 1746 rating.
    I am going to bench my feral and replace with enhance, im looking for decent Enhance pvp commentators, blogs and such if any of you know please post below.
    Also any tips and tricks of enhance pvp are welcome in the comments.

    PS i know enhance are probably a weaker class than feral in pvp but i have just fallen away from druid playstyle ;-(

    I'll go over a few points to keep in mind when you are playing.

    Healing Stream Totem - The heal may seem quite small to you but it truly does add up
    Ghost Wolves - They hardly do any damage yet their heal is impressive, use them as a healing CD
    Frozen Power(Talent) - Use the snare effectively, if a healer is standing behind a pillar, see if you can take a few steps back and root him behind the pillar before returning to your target.
    Ancestral Guidance(Talent) - I presonally use this with Ascendance to make the most of the healing, though if you see that your team is getting fairly low be ready to pop it.
    Earth Elemental Totem - Temporarily taunts a hunters zoo, sometimes that extra two seconds can change the game though
    Purge - Spammmmmmmmm
    Spirit Walk - Also breaks snares
    In 3v3 use your maelstrom proc with healing surge when you are under 50% hp, if you happen to be doing 1v1 use healing surge every proc

    Everything else is pretty self explanatory

    I know our main off stat at the moment is mastery, apparently thats changing to haste for PvE so I'll have to find out if haste will be better in PvP also

    Another thing I'd like to point out is that if you cant keybind more than 25 spells you are going to have a tough time as a enh shaman, you need to be able to use all our totems instantly due to their situational benefits.

    nice info orangelemonrain atm i have wolf and ancestral macrod together for healing its working well, have Stormlash and Acendance macrod together for the burst, and trink + racial macro for a seccondary burst, i have over 50 binds on my DK and 70 for my drood so should be ok in that department:P

    its just practise i need now on shammy , its my challange to keep me hooked on wow, what the point playing the no1 pvp class and faceroll rather play the class i like and work to be great at it!

    Hubarrage is the name.
    Being constructive feels good. You should try it.

    yeah i couldn't remember the spelling, either way i still don't suggest going enhance unless you want an uphill battle with your boot straps tied together while fighting on an empty stomach

    I'm going to be starting to PvP again on my Shaman come 5.2 as well. Mostly for the purpose of Rated Battlegrounds. I've been wanting to do Elemental but it seems to have a very strange and poor place in PvP currently and I don't really know if that's changing much come 5.2.

    Since this is an Enhance PvP thread... how do they add up in RBGs? Are they worth taking along or will most players attempt to dismiss any Shaman that isn't Resto now a days? I remember Enhance PvP back at the end of BC and it was a blast then, I can only assume it got even better after all the changes.

    I dont do RBG's but from what I've heard we are horrid at it; to the enemy team we are just a free kill. Maybe someone else who does RBG's could touch a bit more on the subject though.

    Yeah in RBG warriors and DK were he only melee dps taken (the third and last melee being the FC). Every other melee laked peel, control, survivability and/or burst. For the next season warrior will be probably trashed for a rogue, windwalkers may do an apperance in some teams (but I really doubt they will last, as mistweaver can ringofpeacing just as good). But enh (or ret in the same place) are just too easy target to be valuable in any serious team.

    If you want your shaman in a high ranked RBG switch to resto for the easy win, or try ele for a dps spot but usually boomkin are competing for the same spot, and they do better with solar beam, ursol vortex, clone and a burst which compete with ele and better aoe.
