Funny thing is that shamans were pretty good at PvP before TBC. But not that great in PvE.Blizzard acknowledged the PvE issues and "fixed" them in TBC. Unfortunately, however,they did not address the PvP issues that arose with all the new skills and spells allother classes got. On of the community managers himself admitted on the US forum thatBlizzard tried to improve the PvE apsects of the shamans first and that they wouldlook at PvP later. So they told us. Yet patch after patch came and nothing happened.All we got were more PvE buffs and nerfs, except the 30% damange reduction for enhancementshamans. For elemental shamans, however, nothing changed. If you think that shamans areok for PvP then please have a look here: http://www.sk-gaming.com/arena/. There areno shamans in top (highest ranked) 2vs2 and 3vs3 teams. Only in 5vs5 shamans can holdtheir position. For now. But even in 5vs5 teams without a shaman are becoming more andmore popular. It's only a matter of time until there will be no more shamans in arena left.Maybe then Blizzard will finally realize that there are some issues with this class.But I guess they will just tell you this: Not all classes are meant for PvP. Like notall classes are meant to have CC.
