    b) ADDITIONAL effect, yes this is cool, but it is another cool down- no it does not proc windfury for you.

    c) Possibly means wont, but what does that matter the only spells any enhance casts are instant anyway thanks to maelstrom weapon- great for ele and resto though.

    d) Who cares what they really do- They strip enhance of almost all of it's spell power, moving these to %based means we will get virtually nothing out of them, screw y'all i am using magma.

    e) No, its just the class is already so cool down choked they have to nerf an ability to give you room to use any new ones.

    f) Int is not AP anymore, but that means this is no longer a DPS talent and will be avoided anyway.

    g) No that's fine I don't mind losing Agi and Str (AP AP) from my str of earth totem, nono saves me a little mana just use your horn of winter. Only enhances 2 abilities instead of all of them. One of which probably wont even be used. so unless 5 points increases stormstike's damage by 50% it will be a nerf over all.

    h) the Good byes:
    Mental Quickness - instant spells don't get mana cost reduced by 6%, 30% of AP to Spellpower- oh crap this is why (d) sucks. your only going to see like 10 spellpower out of flametonge now. enjoy shitty useless fire spells (assuming the mastery nature damage makes up for this for earthshock and LBs... which it wont)

    Improved Windfury Totem - No no use your frost DK talent, it is better than the ability it ripped off... (seriously? you give us 5% more melee haste on flurry and take 4% away from totems? Everyone called it this is what that change was for)

    Mental Dexterity - No more AP from INT. (But then since hunters wont use mana anyway, hopefully Int will be off all out gear anyway, joy i love running out of mana)

    Others - Yeah means don't be surprised as they continue to run this spec into the ground.

    And for this we gain... Melee damage, Melee Haste, Nature damage... 3rd part which i doubt will make up for all the spellpower loss.

    Really?? Because i was hoping to see expertise in there so we didn't have to fill every freaking gem slot with it because hunters don't need it so you don't even give it to us on our own tier set!

    Better yet, make hunters need expertise- People dodge and parry bullets in fantasy movies all the time, make it happen in WoW!

    I doubt "Healing Rain" will make it to live servers.
    A healing spell with the same aoe mechanics such as "Rain of Fire" or "Blizzard" would require the raid to completely rethink it's positioning. And basing your raids position around 1 spell is a bit much.

    I really hope that Holy Paladins get an ability that allows them to heal while moving as well, especially if tanks continue to risk dying if they go 2-3 seconds without a heal from us

    All amazing info. Glad to see the new "Healing Rain" is gonna give "Tranquility" some well needed competition! Also, "Primal Strike" is gonna make leveling a shaman SO much better. Thx!

    lmao nice comeback,

    if it is boring then your not doing it right, unless by boring you mean AMG I CAN'T DO AS MUCH DAMAGE AS THE ROGUE!

    in which case, go play a rogue, enjoy spamming 3 buttons.

    So Blizzard should stop making us believe that they will improove Enhancement. Why keeping this spec if you only improove Elem/resto though these spec are so good today ? Go delete Enhancement instead of trying to kill this spec silently. So shame

    Drop it on melee....

    Or on ranged when they can be clumped together to maximize the effect.

    You gotta realize that this is not even close to all the changes, its just a taste, little pieces on each spec. There will be many more updates, they do not in any way plan on leaving enhancement in the dust, they are just trying to think of ways to make less gaps in the rotation.

    I don't even play Shaman, and still these changes are mouth-watering.

    So healing rain will be a tranquility like spell but with the set and forget mentality of lightwell.

    I agree with previous posters, unleash weapon is just another name for judgement... Seems like enhance getting a raw deal, atleast from the preview. Better hope there is alot of stuff not mentioned here for them otherwise it might become the dead spec it was back in vanilla.

    @People "OMG IM LVLING MY SHAMMY IN CATA!!!ONE" replace "SHAMMY" with every other class over the next few days. Fanbois.

    Grats to the shammies. Dont have one and i aint gonna level one purely because of a (maybe) cool looking resto spell lol.

    Spiritwalker's Grace (level 85): When this self-targeted buff is active, your spells are no longer interrupted by movement and possibly even by your own attacks. This will give shaman of all three specs another way to heal or do damage when it’s necessary to move in both PvE and PvP. Instant cast. 10-second duration. 2-minute cooldown.

    OMG!!!

    You must not keep up with the changes their doing because these things in particular are so off it's not even funny. Int isn't AP because AP won't be in game anymore much like spellpower. DO YOU NOT REALIZE THAT CHANGES TO STUFF LIKE THIS MEAN THEY HAVE PLANS ELSEWHERE AND THEY AREN'T TELLING US EVERY LAST DETAIL OF WHAT THEY ARE DOING? Talents will be changed therefore you may not be avoiding that talent. Secondly, hunters won't use mana, nor will ENHANCEMENT shamans so stop your stupid, ill informed QQ.

    People like you just really have to be so miserable with your own lives that you have nothing positive to say and when you do speak, it's just full of stuff you've made up in your head and fed yourself to believe.
