I didn't see it as a bad year for shaman, but then I play pve instead of pvp. Strikes me that the class as whole is designed more for pve than pvp, I'm sure there's a "pvp" class out there to counter this. On the odd times I do pvp, I don't do that badly, even in my laughable enhance gear.

On the odd times you do pvp in pve gear you don't do that badly.It's jerks like you saying "We're fine" that kills us.Enhance pvp is without question the MOST difficult fight you'll have. You have no way to make up distance (FS ftl), no escapes (after you trinket the first time, ask them kindly to wait to CC you again after 2 minutes have past), and you're playing dice with you're main source of damage (when it procs, WF rules. When it procs).But it's okay to you? Carebear, please, keep snuggling with bunnies and let the adults talk.

Thing is, that pvp class? Used to be shaman. Before TBC, shaman were really considered to be only useful in pvp, and so a lot of people that rolled shaman did so to pvp. So now that we are, largely, a pve class... a lot of us are upset.

While I'm not as annoyed at PvE shaman as Censorman is, he's absolutely right on all his points regarding the difficulty of winning 1v1 pvp with enhancement shaman. Simply put, Shaman are missing critical abilities/talents that most other classes commonly use to survive in pvp. Just playing my warlock alt, I'm stunned at how much more that class has to offer than shaman. The discrepancy is a joke. I'm sticking with my shaman in the vain hope that Blizz upgrades them by the next expansion. Maybe they'll scale better to 80. Fool's hope, I know, but I still enjoy playing this broken class for whatever reason.And BTW, whenever I BG, I always go after the shaman first. Easiest kill every time.
