Zach, I love ya. But this is what my original problem was:You describe paladin melee as somehow less boring than enhancement melee. They use almost the exact same number of cooldowns, and the mechanics in melee are similar enough to be considered the same for most situations. I don't see how on earth that you thought enhancement was less boring when it does similar. How is a windfury proc more exciting than seal of command? More numbers?Enhancement gives up a lot to be a melee specialist. It goes against the design of the class (caster dps) and was a weird thing. But since the class was inherently flawed in it's design, just like paladins, it works. (Caster DPS with no pushback resistance and a single school for almost every spell)Now you bring up PVP. The original article really didn't strike me as talking about it. You act as if poison cleansing totem is better than cleanse for dealing with poisons (it pulses every 5 seconds, basically the same problem as cleanse shows up) or the totems make a shaman more able to handle PVP. They don't. We have a few more options but we also lack some that paladins and it makes it a wash, really.I love Paladins. They make raids more enjoyable, they are great tanks and healers and their DPS, while it needs work, is filled with buffs for the group.They need some things to make them do better in melee, no doubt. But saying that they are less boring (or capable than enhancement shaman in PVP) is a bit off. The article was pretty much dead on for all other points. ;)
