Mages are free to use their water elementals where they wish, ours should be summoned not brought and leased to a lame totem, same goes for our rocky tank friend, plus he needs a big buff.

You can't call something that was unable to take 2 hits from correct level mobs 4 levels after you learned him a tank...

As a mage, I should mention some differences between Water Elemental and the shaman elementals.1. Mage WE: 45 seconds, up to 60 talented, unless you glyph it for indefinate time (PvE only, as WE loses his long-range Frost Nova). 3 minute cooldown (can be instantly cut with Cold Snap). Essential part of Frost DPS (the lowest of mage DPS trees)2. Shaman FE and EE: 2 minute duration. 10 minute cooldown. Not essential to shaman's DPS, but a nice boost.[WARNING: NO RESEARCH HERE] I would imagine that an Elemental shaman who does not use his Fire Elemental could outdps a Frost Mage using Water Elemental. Frost relies a lot more on the WE, so they don't have to worry about leaving him behind, he's their guardian.

again some troll who wants one class's ability to be totally similar to another. WoW is NOT about giving each class equal spells. Warlocks can fear, so all the classes should be able to do it? The more similar classes get, the more WoW is dying. Add this to the info what developers said: they NEVER wanted classes to have the same abilities, and they NEVER wanted to balance classes against each other in PVP. WoW was clearly a PVE focused game, they only introduced and enhanced PVP later on because many people wanted to play that way and Blizz wanted to satisfy those people to gain players. So don't ever ask for a class spell only because X has similar one but better.
