There's also the issue that elemental is somewhat broken in raiding, since the spellpower bonus from Totem of Wrath is a non-scaling version of Demonic Pact (and in current raid gear that means inferior), and Wrath replaces your damage dealing totem. If you've got a Demo lock for your raid, your ranged DPS Shaman needs to get into melee range to use their best DPS totem, and if they're stuck using their buff totem they do substandard damage. Admittedly, this doesn't really matter while levelling, but WoW players being who we are, it trickles down.To be honest, I've seen quite a few levelling elemental shamans, although they're usually using hand-me-down tattered dreadmist pieces.Personally, I found levelling as elemental fine, although admittedly I never tried it until I hit Northrend so I had the additional regen of thunderstorm right of the bat. You're durable as all get out if you keep a decent shield strapped on your arm, water shield does a decent job of keeping the mana flowing, and lightning bolt has a very nice mana to damage ratio
