You can't just look at these results and say "oh, these three trees are equally popular, so everything must be great". The shaman population has been steadily decreasing for the past year, and upcoming nerfs are taking away a lot of the viability we had for PvE in Elemental and Enhancement.Overall, I'd say that the shaman talent trees are pretty decent, with some notable exceptions (Totem of Wrath is STILL crap, and the only reason that anybody takes it is to get into raids, which is the only place that it's actually slightly useful).The fact of the matter is that the shaman class has yet to be adapted to the current realities of the game: "burst" is dead, fights are mobile, CC is essential, and nobody cares about the unique buffs that non-resto shamans provide.I've mostly stopped playing my main character, an Elemental shaman, because I just can't ever find groups. It's always "Are you Resto? No? Oh, never mind".
