Forgive me, (and I know i will get flammed). I have played WoW a few months, old time EQ player (since '99). I am currently in Iraq and my wife and I are going to start playing WoW full time when I get home. I like to play the classes that are least played so I can be a "standout" and also get the loot nobody else is fighting over! I noticed through out that Druids and Shammans are the least played class. All that said I did start a shammy when i played for those few months last year (it's been a while) and I never got a toon past lvl 32 (my Gnome rogue and Dwarf hunter). I never really got into the builds cuz I was new to the game and it was a lot different than EQ was. Not to mention I had no idea so much thought process went into the whole talents tree part. I just thought you put talent points into the spots that you wanted to and looked good to you as you think they should fit your toon and it's abilities. Not to mention how you like to play. I will admit I put a lot of build points into my subtlty for my rogue cuz I always liked to sneak around and be "stealthy." I must say Eliah that I really enjoy reading this article as well as all the others on this site. It has helped me "learn before I crash and burn!" BUT on to the real reason for this post now that most aren't reading it anymore! I see the Elem Shammies and the Restro Shammies but what about the Enhancement Shammies? Are these not good build or are they not desired by groups, Does anyone have a link to a build. I mean I can see that Shammies weren't meant to be Tanks...least for the most part, maybe soft OTs. I will mostly be soloing or playing with my wife and local friends (I hate most pick up groups for the fact that people come and go, some are loot hogs and roll need for EVERYTHING, and so forth and that is another thread all together...) Which is a good Build starting off soloing and should I respect the Shammy later at the upper levels to make him more viable to groups/raids? Any help is greatly appreciated. I will mostly be PVE as well, I don't need to PVP to show anyone my l33tn3ss or pwning or whatever else kids are saying now days to prove they can punch the keyboard and click a mouse better than anyone else. Again Thanks, I will take any and all advice or point me in the right direction,..keep up the great work and I can't wait till next weeks article! Love the comments too. I am glad everyone has their own opinion (like the hole in their backside)! It proves indivualism instead of mindless thought patterns!
