    agreed.

    And this, my friends, is why the Shaman community feels as if we've been backstabbed by Blizzard for years. Each time we come closer to solving the issues with the Shaman class, Blizzard takes a cheap shot at our class and strips the buff away, or nerfs it so that it's worthless. (Aka Lava Burst).

    So try to understand how the Shaman Community feels.

    They do this all the time. It's like dangling a slice of cake in front of a fat kid. It's so close that the fat kid can touch it but it's just out of reach. Finally, when the devs decide enough is enough, they eat that piece of cake and laugh.

    In a typical class forum you'd see stuff like "Our mana is the worst," or "Our dps is the worst," or "We don't scale," followed by 10 pages of high-fives. If another class comes in they get told "Your forum is that way ->".* //Ghostcrawler

    Re: Shaman polish pass?

    Let's face it folks:

    We Shaman had our glory days back in the 1st year of WoW. Ever since then, it's been a steady process of nerfing us down, well past everyone else. All this while they've improved everyone further than anything we could've hoped to become.

    Melee? Enhancement Shaman are 3rd (or 4th) stringers when compared to Warriors and Rogues (and in some cases, Ret Paladins)

    Casters? Elemental Shamans have lost 75% of their talented Spell Hit Rating. While in the Pre-3.0.2 patch, we still lagged behind Warlocks & Mages for Casters, we also lagged behind Hunters as well for 4th place in the Ranged DPS role. Now, with the loss of Spell Hit, we lose even more overall spell damage by re-attaining spell hit to cover what we lost....placing us further behind the rest of the Ranged DPS crews.

    Healers? Our one saving grace: Resto Shaman Heal Power! Oh wait. No sign of a new Chain Heal Rank anywhere to be seen! All while Priests, Druids & Paladins catch up in overall heal power/effectiveness that puts them *at least* on par with us. In PVP, Druids & Priest had already replaced us in Arenas. Now it'll just push us completely into the back of the bus.

    Thanks again Blizzard. This might be Beta, but this is a clear indication where your love is right now and where it's been for almost 4 years now.

If you notice, they seem to be doing rogues and warriors this time, so our time will come soon. Just wait. ;D
    Been patient since 1.4 - tired of being patient.

    Mages lost 50% of their talented frost/fire ppell hit back when TBC was launched and arcane loses most of it together with warlock and shadows in wrath.
    Blizzard decided to reduce talented hit on all casters...

    I'm sure new chain heal rank will come with the rest of the spells still missing.
