"Elemental shamans grew in popularity specifically because of nerfs to enhancement combined with much better itemization for them in Burning Crusade"This bit above all else stuck out to me the most.I was die hard enhancement from 1 (ok... 10 :p) to 70. I played a bit still as enh. at 70, did some dungeons, etc... But I got so frustrated by the continual enhancement nerfs (the WF5/4 "fix" was the final straw) that I respecced elemental. I had NO gear for elemental at the time and basically ran around in my resto off set, combined with what I could gather from AH.I was immediately impressed. Even with crap gear, elemental seemed so much more viable. Heck, elemental was even greeted with buffs! 100% clear casting from crits, awesome! And then [i]every[/i] patch from that point on has been nerfs. Nerf after nerf.I can't help but think... why is Blizzard doing this? I haven't played a nerf free shaman in over a year now! It gets very, very frustrating and at times I strongly consider quitting over it.Oh yeah, I have a resto druid too... lol, did I pick the wrong classes or what?
