Question for the Queue:I've been leveling characters recently and did the Wrathgate / Taking back the UC quest on my (horde) toon and noticed something weird. Also I recently did some old-school TBC raiding and in Mt. Hyjal I noticed it again. I wondered if Blizz had ever commented on it or if wow.com had any theories. The thing I noticed was this:Why is Thrall such a fail Shaman?Seriously. He's melee, so presumably Enhance - but the guy apparently hasn't specced dual-wield and instead single-wields a 1handed mace which looks like it might be one of the heirloom ones (guess Thrall suffers from bad RNG, too). To make it worse he hasn't enchanted his weapon (no glow) and didn't put Windfury on (or any other embue that I could see). No lightning shield either - [i]and[/i] I didn't see him once put down a totem (never mind put down all four - hasn't he been to the trainer since the "Call of Earth / Air / Water etc. spells were added?*). He also didn't pop Bloodlust at all during any of the fights I was grouped with him in. I mean, if I got Thrall in a DFer PuG I'd be vote-kicking him as soon as I could. In a related topic: What classes are the other faction leaders, and do they ever accurately represent their PC-based counterparts' abilities? *although I suppose I can forgive him that in Hyjal since that was most definately set before patch 3.2.

Nah man,http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20071027082845/wowwiki/images/thumb/d/df/DoomhammerModel.jpg/800px-DoomhammerModel.jpg*that's* the Doomhammer. I dunno what Thrall is weilding now...but it doesn't look like that.Maybe he got his account hacked and the buggers DE'd the Doomhammer or vendored it.

Yes, Thrall does not use the standard shaman attacks and whatnot, but have you ever noticed him lacking in killing power?

Thrall's just so good that he doesn't need any of those things. He must secretly be Saurfang's understudy or something.... ;-)
