I think Shamans are being affected the most by all of this.I'd be happy if Mages are finally able to dispel magic, but I don't see this happening.

You do realize we have Spellsteal...right?If you're talking about defensive dispels, that would be a little much.

Shamans seem to be getting the complete and utter shaft with all the changes they've announced so far.It's a good thing the Shaman Changes FAQ is up first.Shaman is already the least played class, I can't see this making things any better.

@HenrahShamans the least played class? Um... no... That would be rogues and warlocks thanks... nice try at trying to make info you made up on the spot believable though...

As a long time mage and a budding priest I have never understood why mages could dispell curses and priests could dispell magic effects. It really seems like it should be the other way around.

I play a shaman, a mage, a paladin, and a druid at level 80.Shaman are the least played of all those classes. At level 80.However, warlocks and rogues are even more rare than shaman. But again, this is only true for level 80. And level 80 (or whatever the cap is at a given moment) tends to be the most focused upon group by Blizzard.It's also not 100% correct to say that warlocks and rogues are the least played class. And in all senses, shaman, warlocks, and rogues are the least played WoW classes.But yeah, I agree that shaman are really losing out here on the dispel mechanics changes. Suck.Oh, and you can check the facts for yourself at warcraft census.

...but then you don't see too many rogues because their dps sucks, horribly, unless they're raiders. Raiding rogues are putting out obscene amounts of dps (18k?!?), yet your garden-variety casual rogue is bloody awful.Gear (and a few dozen buffs) do make a difference.
