"why are elemental shamans reporting that they are absolutely on the bottom rung of raid damage in Naxx and above?"Cause they, like every other class, think they've been shafted.Every day I see a new class and spec complaining that they are bottom of PVE/PVP.

Though Elemental is the one spec that has been showing the raid data to prove it. When you add in utility, they fall woefully behind. No reliable CC (45 second CD is very prohibitive if there is a resist), no AoE (Boomkin gained very respectable AoE, Hunter AoE was very significantly buffed despite a recent nerf to the Survival 51pt, Mage AoE was already good and only got better, Warlocks AoE was already good and will remain so. CL is NOT AoE and Thunderstorm defeats the prupose of AoE where you want mobs bunched up), and only one remotely respectable raid buff that another class (or other spec Shaman) can't bring a better version of.Here's hoping another numbers pass brings them out of the tank DPS range.
