Quit worrying about Wind Shear being on the GCD. It's obviously not. It's still the same spell (Wind Shock) which has been taken off the Shock cooldown. It's JUST LIKE Counterspell, only with 1/4 duration and 1/4 cooldown.Also, Elemental Shamans: You won't be using Earth Shock anymore. Flame Shock is used for LvB combos, and Frost Shock becomes superior to Earth Shock in both damage and a lower cooldown, and also a more useful debuff against melee.Earth Shock becomes a more useful tool for Enhancement, since they (at least partly) need to be in melee range to deal proper damage, thus being susceptible to other melee classes. So, for Enh, Earth Shock = more damage (through Stormstrike) and a useful anti-melee debuff. Plus, they get to interrupt without contempt.IMO, some basic Enhancement talent should be updated to include a +10% attack speed reduction to Earth Shock, to make it on par with similar abilities like talented Icy Touch or Thunder Clap.As a sidenote, I'd like to add that, apparently, Wind Sh(ock)ear is the only interrupt ability that doesn't add threat, but actually reduces it.
