This pretty much cements the fact that Blizzard absolutely hates Enhancement Shaman in PvP and wants them not playing ANY part in it.The one thing that has changed my way of playing and has given me somewhat of an ability to survive BGs more than the 2 or 3 seconds it takes to kill me is my dispel. I considered myself a Priest killer, but even then it STILL took me minutes...not seconds...to kill one sometimes, and all the while he's too busy to heal others. The other place it helped was against druid healers, again not really to kill, mostly to disrupt. I was satisfied with this as it helped when we were in groups, I wasn't a killer but I provided deadly support. That will be gone, and my support role will be severely diminished. So exactly what other roll am I supposed to play if I don't play support? Oh yeah...I should just switch to healing like I'm supposed to right?Yes Poison Cleansing totem was a fire and forget dispel, but it is a totem and with it comes all the caveats of using totems, including but not limited to, range, the need for other totems in its place, and the fact that the totem is easily destroyed. Smart people simply kept walking out of range of the totem or destroyed it. It's chaotic trying to do everything an enhancement shaman can do (we have at minimum 9 different spells in our priority rotation) and make sure you have the right totem down while trying your best to survive. The totem mechanic is enough to keep us in line.Why is it not ok to have simple fire and forget dispels yet make it a cakewalk to put poisons and diseases on you and never worry about them again. Might as well just make DK diseases dispel immune in that case, I mean what's the difference...a healer has to spend time removing those several times over and watch them just be reapplied quickly over and over. Even with my cleansing totem I would almost always come out of a fight against a DK with some sort of disease on me no matter what i did.Blizzard, most every day you rock but today you suck major a$$.
