As a shaman (raiding BC as elemental until we were in the middle of a healer crunch), the CL change both excites and scares me. When I've gone ele since 3.0.8, it's been fun. I still use CL in my single-target rotation. Would my CL hitting a 4th target be fun? Sure. Would it hurt my single-target boss damage, oh yes.Shamans need AoE? Yarp, that we do. What elemental needs is AoE on either a shorter cooldown than 45 seconds, or on a totem we can USE. Fire totem, it's either a buff for the group, or it's damage. Not rightly fair. Mages don't have to sacrafice anything to use Blizzard. Druids can AoE until the cows come home and not take any hits with their buffs.My idea? Give us a Blizzard-like spell. A channeled AoE as a core ability. Earthquake, like in WC3."Sure, give everyone AoE, make all the classes the same so it doesn't matter what you play anymore." That's a comment I've agreed with, but with all the trash that you have to AoE down in both 5-mans and raids, AoE is just too effective right now, and being a class without it blows goat.
