@FaarHeh. Actually I just logged off of my level 63 Enhance Shammy and was wishing Shadow was more like that. Shadow does have its challenges, but they're not really decisions, but timing. You need to cast X on CD and Y is higher priority, but Z is falling off soon, hrm, which to cast first? I appreciate immensely the power and flexibility that EShammys have. Soloing 2 and 3-man quests that have me take on +1/+2 level elites (like Cruel's Intentions, the big Shadow beast in the void ledge, the warlock in the cave underneath Zeth'gor, the two elite Orcs at the foot of Hellfire Citadel, the elite crystal giants out near the path to Zangarmarsh, etc...) by carefully sequencing and intelligently using my CDs I see as great fun.Honestly I don't think they're that hard on manage. If you're Enhance you have 9 lightning orbs, which last a while unless you have more than 3 mobs on you. Wind Shear is off the GCD, so no problem missing that. Your Shock spells have SW:D-length CDs, besides you want your DoT ticking as long as possible, so you pretty much always throw Flame then Earth and alternate on CD. Maelstrom weapon is a fantastic flexibility machine letting you heal yourself or others or throw extra DPS around without breaking your rotation. Puppies and Shammy Rage are quite useful and on a pretty short CD (1 minute!), so you can use them basically every other trash pull. Without the CDs on key abilities (Shocks, Nova, Stormstrike...) I could see it being overwhelming, but that breathing room is built in.I love all the buttons I get to use. In fact I have my Troll racial haste CD, my Herbalist heal, Fel Blossom damage shields, the Chained Essence of Eranikus and Bladefist's Breath on my bars.Enhance Shammy... 60ish levels of skill training - a few hundred gold, downing Cruel's Intentions solo at level 62 - priceless.
