See all of this here:"ShamanClass type: Hybrid, DPS (physical and magical), healerLike Druids and Paladins, Shamans can fill many different roles -- though unlike both of those classes, Shamans are weakest in their healing capacity. However, to be good at any role, Shamans must specialize with both talents and gear, so don't expect your melee Shaman to a stand-out healer. Most frequently you will find Shamans playing as a hybrid melee/caster role, dishing out damage and providing buffs to their party with totems.Gear: Shamans can wear cloth, leather, and mail (at level 40) armor, as well as shields. Shamans have the option of wielding one-handed maces, two-handed maces (with talents), staves, fist weapons, one-handed axes, two-handed axes (with talents), and daggers.Different types of Shaman should focus on different stats:Magical DPS: Intellect, stamina, spell damage, spell crit. Physical DPS: Strength, stamina, agility, attack power, crit. Healer: Intellect, stamina, spell healing, spell crit. Is a Shaman a good choice for a newbie? Yes. Shamans are a fairly powerful class and also have good survivability because of their heavy armor and healing abilities. This combination makes for a great starter class!"Its all 100% wrong, be warned."Shamans are weakest in their healing capacity"Are you f**king retarded? Healing is the ONLY thing shaman can do end game without gimping the raid period. Nihilum only uses Resto shaman, you think maybe theres a reason for that?In all honesty healing is the only thing a shaman can do well at all, the other two specs fail in both PvE and PvP.
