forked lightning is the hearthstone equivalent of chain lightning and lightning storm is the quivalent of earthquake.
Well this isn't a card game. In this case, it would be a cone of damage/healing.
Forked Lightning could be a nice DPS booster for Elemental. Blizzard could then give Resto and Enhance similar DPS and Healing boosts in those specs. Enhance could get Tornado for example, a talent that increases power based on their MW stacks, and Resto could get a version of Forked Lightning that deals damage, heals allies and works off of Telluric currents.
I mean why not? Other class get similar abilities.
Yeah blizz's shaman posts really are mostly about pissing us off, it seems:
-FrS on seperate cd? Yeeeeeeeeeaaaah finallyyyyyy => removed, replaced with wek sprint
-LB on move removed => people keep comlaining => you have UE and Shocks trolololol
-Shamans keep bringing up replacing weak totem tier with a mobility tier to make them more competitive => Trolololol the talent tier is used, what are you talking about being on par? Why would you need to be on par with others? Stop with your "loudness", you minority of people
-Elemental Blast feels like a part of ele rotation, and EQ is still weak => ...and so forth
...And it's not even beta yet :-/
We're gonna be in one hell of a annoying and frustrating couple of months, either with no further changes, or further disappointments in ruining stuff further :-/
Hopefully their trolling will end soon and they finally really fix our issues later on . Seeing Celestalon's blue post regarding EB just make it clear that it won't happen. I wonder what makes elemental rotation is not any simple..? Its the totems and healings that make the button bloated, not the rotation. sigh... One can only hope
