I hope they do it right because I can see a potential gutting of certain specs and gameplay.For 5-10 mans at that. Oh well.

In the balance, it looks like a net loss for Shamans. They gain the (talented) ability to remove magic, lose the inherent class skills of removing poisons and disease, and probably also lose the Cleansing totem (which removes poisons and diseases). They maintain the ability to remove curses, shifting it from talented to a class skill. I'd like my Shaman to be able to dispel magic, but I'd rather have to trade off one other debuff removing ability to gain a new one. Personally, I'd trade disease removal for magic removal. Oh well. Another reason to level my Hunter!

From the way it sounds, they're going to be designing gamebreaking debuffs in raids magic (the ones that if you don't cleanse, you will wipe. I'm thinking of Fusion Punch, Rotface's goo, etc), otherwise what would be the point of giving everyone magic dispels?Granted, I really don't like losing the disease/poisons dispels, and it does seem really weird given the class' lore, but I swallowed my nerd rage for a while, and I'm willing to give Blizz the benefit of the doubt. The shaman changes are due in tomorrow.
