This post is just a rage. Feel free to tell me I am bad or doing something wrong, as I welcome all criticism in this post.
I'm curious, how to you elemental shaman do against the typical rogue backstab 1v1 situation while questing?
Over the course of playing my elemental shaman, I have all but given up when they get the drop on me. I've heard plenty of people say something like "If a rogue can't stun lock you 100% of the time while killing you he is horrible"
Elemental shamans have no stuns, no stun breakers and no defensive cooldowns. Yes we have other stuff but none of those. Is that where the big difference is?
I almost never have a pvp trinket on while doing my dailies. Is that as bad as it sounds? Or should I be able to handle them half or most of the time without one?
Right now I got a rogue in TB who loves me. He spends all day in there. It's not secret rogues are good for pvp, and I'm not calling for a nerf on them, I'm just curious how a "good" elemental shaman should do against a good rogue. Am I expected to lose 90% of the time when they backstab me? Am I retarded for going out into the world without a pvp trinket being the dranei shaman that I am? Or should I still have a fighting chance all the time w/o a trinket if I am doing everything properly?
As it stands, I get stunned. I thunderstorm. He has more than enough time to get back before I get out. When I get out I either hex, healing surge, frost shock, or gift of naaru. It seems no matter what strategy I use it's not good enough. And if at any point I get a healing spell or lightning bolt interrupted, I am completely fucked. Idk enough about boomkins and shadow priests to compare. I've never had a problem with boomkins though.
Last night, he got me while I was typing in the TB outpost. I was more or less ready to defend, but I didn't. I didn't want to give him the satisfaction. I just pretended to be afk so he wouldn't feel as good when he eventually killed me.
Any suggestions? I am about ready to reroll dwarf atm, but I'd rather figure out what I am doing wrong, if anything.
