I think this finally gives people some insight to why people play shamans, and a good reason to STFU about them. My main is a shammy on cenarian circle (divinious) and he was my first char, whom I stick to loyally to this day. Yes we all pick different trees and the person who said its because they all suck is only half right. Shamans arent made to be the best at anything (its why we suck in duels :) but were made to be GOOD at everything. Now dont get me wrong theres always a few jerk shammys out there who think they can out dps the world or out pewpew mages or DONT DROP TOTEMS! ...i hate that so much.. have 4 up at all times..but i digress. The reason i continue to play my shammy shammy is because occasionally i can heal then if im bored ill respec to enh and go questing or if i wanna watch sparkly chain lightning..well you know the rest. A true good shammy is about utility. I have fond memories of times when the main tank died in a run of BRD and I had to step in and tank the boss. Before you flame on that i'm certainly not saying i can tank with enh spec. but in a pinch and a boss with low enough life i can step in and finish the job. OR theres been OSSOMANY times when the priest goes OOM! and then i take a step back and become the main healer. Not as if i could main heal the whole thing but i can help when im needed. EX How many people have seen a clothie get fried like a Col Sanders recipie by the dragon in ramparts? Know what happens then SHAMAN FTW i stop swinging my axe and make with the heals. We as a shammy comminity are here to make you better. Rogues love windfury hunters love GOA tanks love the strength mages love wrath ..hmm so do druids...everyone has a favorite totem and we make it happen. Other than that were here to augment the team. period. Its comes with the territory of being a jack of all trades. No one has a meter that says wow the windfury on those rogues made their DPS this high ect, but its the same with prot tanks. Nothing out there counts how much aggro they hold but they do it and it sucks for them oh well. In that same way we do are jobs and need to stop whining about it. I dont need to top a DPS chart but when our top rogue goes man windfury is freakin crazy! Thats all i need. :)Oh and for the guy who said he never gets groups as elemental. DUH DPS is a dime a dozen theres only two things groups ALWAYS need on LFG and thats a PROT warrior and some sort of true healer. Yes if you wanna make yourself the object of LFG desire go resto, everyone needs a healer. Me personally I dont tend to stray from a ENH/REST build cause i like being able to be flexable and help wherever im needed.
