I'd still very much like to see Elemental get a Fire Shield that acts like Lightning Shield + Static Shock, but for casted spells or periodic ticks, etc.On-topic, I'm liking where Elemental is going, coupled with using the same gear as Resto, it's starting to compete heavily with Enhancement for my alt spec.

Yeah, I'd love to see Elemental get its own shield. Enhancement gets one and Restoration gets two to fiddle with. It's so lame to use a shield that doesn't really feel like a DPS shield to begin with and has no talents to involve it directly in a DPS-like manner."As you can see from the image above, the current animation isn't quite finished yet, but looks promising."I was going to say it looked bad on the edges there with uneven terrain. I have a feeling the animation will get better but the terrain issue may continue to look silly if you're not on a flat surface. :\

To be honest, I want to see it not because Water Shield doesn't directly contribute to DPS (especially with Elemental's other mana-returning mechanics), but because it's a glaring hole in the Shaman's control of the elements. There's Totems in Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire. There's Shocks in Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire (including Wind Shear, which was only renamed to have it on a separate cooldown). There's Shields in Earth, Wind, Water, and... that's it. There's a Fire Shield in the game, but Imps have it for some reason.

But there are only 3 elementals, it's not as if that's the only hole. That sounded bad.

I knew there was one I was forgetting. Water (or Frost, maybe?) Elemental Totem and Wind Elemental Totem should also be spells.
