I realize after reading new post that people are still crying about shamans, well hey i love my shaman don't think I'll roll another class, probably a Ret Paladin =D.
Anyway for the past couple days I've been running Mana Tombs and all the other instances that are in that area (don't remember how to spell the other 2 and yall like to bash for spelling) and the times that I've done it Ank and off healed has saved the party every time I don't know if the healers sucked but I find myself while fighting the last boss in Shettalk halls (spell check plz ) when he does that AOE acrane blast and everybody runs behind a column I help healers heal everybody and heal myself. I remember the first time i went there and we wiped and the pally asked me " hey Stam u got ank" as i poped up he yelled " I love shammy's" and im sure every shaman on the board has got that
Now that with new trees instant cast healing it would make shamans more versatile I can see it now
(Before new trees " Iamlame: LF2M Dps/Off-Healer")
(After new trees "Iamlame: LF1M Enhance Shaman) lol
And just imagine in BG after rapping a "insert class here" and you still have your maelstrom proc'ed instant cast Chain lighting I expect great amount of QQ when 3.0 goes live but i guess blizz is gonna put on the good old nerf gloves and give our tree a cavity search but until them I'm sticking with ma shaman all the way!
