I fully admit I have zero playing experience with a shaman. I also fully admit I have LOTS of grouping experience with a shaman.1) Lack of mana regen-Something an Enhancement shaman does gets mana back when they get hit. I had an Enhancement shaman fully tank the second boss in BM for a good 20 seconds and he regenned mana almost to full. I don't know what it's called. Sorry.2) Lack of survivability-See above, he tanked it, flat out for at least 20 seconds. Plus everyone knows the cleaves and glancing blows are being massively reduced in the patch.3) Lack of cc / anti-cc-Neither do other classes/specs, you can't have everything. Your "CC" is your pets and your mail armor and shields, use it.4) Windfury is a broken mechanic (an article on the 3 second cooldown of windfury could be written and span pages)-It's broken, so no one uses it right?5) There was no need to nerf WF and EF-Out DPSing mages is obviously no need to nerf anything...6) We bring little utility to a 5 man. Try getting a SH group without cc and not being resto.-Again, see above, Enhancement shaman improve melee DPS, Totems for fear immunity (great on horde side), totems for mana, self-res (hello wipe prevention), off-tanking, off-healing, DPS, totem pets, etc. etc. etc.7) The totem UI has not been worked on-If you say so, no idea.8) Tons of our talents are never used / totems are never used-Welcome to the club. Every class and spec has talents and abilities that aren't used as much or not at all. They are either situational, or just not as popular because of peer pressure.Thanks for your time.
