    Is enhancement getting any changes in 8.2 to compete with elemental

    As the title says I have been waiting for 8.2 as a last hope that enhancement will get some much needed changes to compete in the mythic + space. Single target in a phone booth enhancement provided there is bloodlust does well. Overall my DH with 10 ilvl less does more overall damage in M+ then my enhancement but I see elemental is tearing things up.

    Would you suggest I switch to elemental for rest of xpac or is 8.2 bringing some changes to enhancement?

    The only buff I can think of Enhancement getting is just that they 10+ affix will be changing from Reaping - which by its very nature makes AoE specs more valuable - with whatever fish related affix we get.

    Also don't compare anything to demon hunters. DH's are made to be cruise control DPS. Pretty much training wheels.

    Enhance is fine.

    It does good damage but its just trash to play. You spend 90% of your time just using stormstrikes trying to not waste the procs that randomly happen over and over and over and over lol.

    When will people stop using Sims to compare specs? Use logs, they reflect real DPS.

    With the right gear, Enhancement can do alright. Elemental is currently bringing more to the table due to Reaping. I'd wait to see what 8.2 brings before committing to the switch.

    But if you enjoy playing Elemental then now's a good time to be playing it. I am starting to doubt Enhancement will see any notable changes at all this expansion, but I'm sticking with it anyway.

    Unless you honestly think Affliction Locks are below all three hunter specs.

    That doesn't mean shit kid.

    Yes Blizzard currently designs fights that are not friendly to specific classes, Method and Pieces didn't use melee at all, it sucks, but thats raiding.

    "Kid"

    And yet you're talking about CoS.

    When I linked BoD.

    Congratz, your data about a stationary dummy that isn't moving shows that numbers look fine on paper.

    That is true for sure. Yet that doesn't mean enhancement isn't one of the bottom melee specs. If it was really "fine" as you say, it would be one of the top performing melee specs regardless of encounter designs. Judging by sims anyway (which are helpful in optimizing your gear but should be taken with a huge grain of salt if you're comparing classes/specs).

    It's sadly a statistical fact that enhancement is underperforming across the board. No amount of spreadsheets and sim stacks are going to reshape reality so it isn't. But that isn't even the whole issue right now, there's just no reason to take an enhancement shaman over the other well performing melee specs because they just don't really add anything to the group that is unique to the spec.

    The only reason to play enhancement shaman in bfa is for the cool visuals and the lore.

    Rotation, spells, utility and performance in a real enviroment and not in a sim is just not fun or performing up to par with other melee specs.

    Enhancement is not bad compared to many other specs in the game. Elemental is just much better name + it is ranged. So there is no need to pick enhancement.
