as a Shaman I feel lied to.to quote Kalgan: To provide a little background, our general outlook on the class is that they're actually in good shape for all 3 specs for raid PvE, on the weak side for heroic PvE, pretty solid in battlegrounds and 5v5, on the weak side in 3v3, and pretty well gimped in 2v2. We're hoping to get at least 1 spec viable in 2v2 for this patch (we're thinking Enhance), but hopefully all three specs will be viable for 3v3.” They come up with a mortal strike on Flametongue, of course we didn't really need it... we need Anti CCthen they remove it 3 days later and nothing happens.no more buffs or anything that might hint into a easier life (on par with other classes) for a Shaman in PvP.we just got lied to to shut us for 2 weeks and now patch 2.4 comes and they will say: 'oh sorry it didn't make it into this patch but you will definately see it in the next, just be patient.which is basically what they said since 2.1 and even before.I'm sick of this attitude of blizzard towards Shamans, all our feedback gets ignored while we are the weakest class in PvP.and yes this is a whine, deal with it.

I can hear Kalgan now: "reroll, you heal bot"...To which I reply..."EM+LB+CL+NS+LB+ES""What's that? I cant hear you over the sound of your face melting"Well I'ma go qq about my ele nerfs now... gah a least we got away with the pushback and crit nerf and not the EM + NS nerf... Shame with the FT roll back, was looking forward to trying out resto with a ret pally. I'm quite happy with the talented instant GW though, thats going to be a blast.

I feel your pain when it comes to blizz non-responsiveness - I'm balance druid myself and could definitely use some love and what do the devs do? Amputate a third of the reach of my only CC, wow thanks guys!Anyway, your complaint that shamen are the weakest is as silly as it is bogus. Holy priests are far weaker for example.On the whole, shamen do alright in BGs my experience. They have awesome burst damage, very effective spell interrupt, snares and hard-hitting spells. No escape skills to talk about perhaps, but that's not unique only to them.Not tried arenas yet so not sure how they perform there.

Sorry, elmo - but that's life. You guys got a really decent buff to make enhancement viable but all you did was cry about it "waahh we dont want that one, we want a different one" - so daddy took your new toy away and sent you to your room until WotLK comes out.Enjoy your time out buddy!

i feel your pain about the lies. It's a reality, not excessive QQ. Also, the troll wants nom noms but he can't have them.
