Druids are powerful indeed. But as for the bit about druids not warring with one another ... shaman also experience that quite often. Ally and Horde shaman (in my experience) help each other far more often than not. I suppose that comes from being the least played class in all of WoW (according to WoW Realms as of a month ago). I personally enjoy getting a salute from an Ally shaman after saving his Draenor behind.Maybe I'll roll moo-cow druid and see how it goes.

It certainly seems that way on my server. When I'm on my shammy, if I see a spacegoat dropping totems I help them almost as a matter of reflex.I wonder if we'll ever see Draenei in the Earthen Ring?

Maybe it's because (as of right now) we're the least played class. I roll troll as well, so I'm the least played class with the least played race. Maybe others find it intriguing or funny, but you definitely don't see too many spacegoat totemics. At least they try to roll shammy-style and for that, I applaud.Besides, as awesome as your own shammy is ... would you really like to blow all your CDs, drop your totems, pop Ghost Puppies, Shaman Rage, and Maelstrom all over the place, just to see the other guy do it too? That's got to be annoying ...

Maybe its because we tend to be the weakest in pvp environments.

This one time, in band camp (in Icecrown), I saved a nearly dead spacegoat shaman from a mob. I dropped a sentry totem to let him know why (Sentry totems are shamans' inside-joke). I thought I was pretty clever, communicating cross faction by way of my useless purple stick-in-the-ground.But since it was an enhancement shaman, he drank up, /dance at me, then popped wolves and murdered me. Long story short: melee shamans are pvp-pricks who should've rolled rogues, and deserve to be hunted to extinction.

Doma, as an enh shaman, I have to insist that we're not all evil rogue-wannabes. In fact, of the shamans who have killed me while I was on my shammy, I think all of them have been ele. Particularly trolls. Statistically I shouldn't be running into troll shamans too much, but they invariably seem hellbent on giving me a hard time more than anyone else (OK, they're nowhere near as bad as DKs and pallies).

@Doma: "Sentry totems are shamans' inside-joke" - can you elaborate? I never heard about it and it sounds interesting.AND CURSE LACK OF EDIT BUTTON AND MY CLUMSY FINGERS!

"@Doma: "Sentry totems are shamans' inside-joke" - can you elaborate? I never heard about it and it sounds interesting."Once upon a time when you dropped sentry totem you suddenly became the totem, AND it stopped your movement completely. Shaman would go to 1000 needles and play chicken with the ground using a sentry totem to stop and not die.Then they patched it to fix that bug.No shaman has used a sentry totem for anything aside from taking screenshots since.We have a totem so useless it is forgotten by a lot of players or only brought up as an example of the developers being complete morons. What's the point of having something that has no purpose? The joke is that you drop something useless as a show that you are brothers in being left with a complete waste of a spell. It is also the least offensive spell possible as it rids you of control for a few seconds while you switch back. Showing trust.If I see a space goat flagged I will often /wave and /dance. They have the best dances. If they want to try and kill me I look to see if wolves are off CD, if they are, I happily kill them, else I run for my life because without them I am about as useful in PVP as a rogue with a polearm.
