Just wanted to say Welcome!, and congrats on your first column on WoW.com. DING!Also, I've never played a shaman past 8th level, but I'm going to roll a dwarf shaman once Cataclysm hits, and I've been trying to decide between Elemental and Enhancement for my leveling spec, since I plan to take Restoration as my other one. After reading this and imagining the fun of having Thunderstorm at 10, I'm now leaning Elemental. Dual-wielding is all well and good, but shocking the **** out of someone and knocking them back, even while I'm stunned? Yeah. Sign me up.

Don't forget that one of the goals mentioned before also is that Resto and elemental will be sharing gear itemization. Unlike Enhancement which will likely get rolled with hunters. So outside of tier, you will be carrying less gear as ele/resto than if you were enh/resto.Of course, all that is moot because ele is teh best spec anyways. Simple, yet versatile. Win.... and now you have me considering how funny it will be to see a dwarf in a fowl mood being charged by thunderstorm and tossing lightning and fire around. I may have to roll one.Oh and welcome to wow.com, Blink! I can't wait to read more about my fav spec on my fav site.

@ icepyro -That's great news, thanks! I've never been too happy with carrying around extra gear, so it'll be awesome to be able to heal and hurt without having to change my clothes. *grin*And yeah, dwarven shamans are going to rock like crazy. Dwarves are pretty much my favorite of the standard fantasy races, so it'll be great to be a short, stout little ball of lightning and fire and pain and beer.

Elemental is fun and I love the spec, But if Enh keep the Ghost wolf talent as is I'd definatly stick with Enh until you grab a mount. Depends how it all works out I suppose. Thunderstorm will be fun early on though.Can't wait to race change my Space goat into Dwarf.
