Oh my God.Thunder is absolutely badass. And overpowered. No way will it make it into the game in its current state.Decent Aoe? 45 second cooldown? No Mana requirement? 5% mana regen? 200 YARD KNOCKBACK!?!And does anyone know what Lava Burst is? Haven't been following the expansion that closely.

Its knockback is only 2 apparently, I don't know why the sites don't fix the information though.

Yeah, 200 yards seemed absolutely ridiculous. I could imagine all the shamans respecing Elemental just to send people flying off the ally bridge in AV or off of Lumber Mill. Even twenty seems overpowered. But two yards? That's really not a lot to work with.This seems to me like a regen/emergency aoe for PVE and a "oh shit I got a Melee on me" for PVP. And when you are slowed/stunned/whatever, two yards isn't going to do much. 5 seems to be more reasonable, but not too OP. As for the rest of the Elemental abilities, I can really see a lot more potential for various rotations other than LB/CL or straight up LB spam, what with Thunder's magically free mana, FS doing twice the damage, and a new fire nuke (finally found out what Lava Burst was :) ).
