As a shaman, running Grim Batol is like Christmas with Hex and Bind Elemental. I did about 2/3rds the damage I normally did (since I had to run back after the CC pull and I tended to stop my rotation and re-hex/re-bind after 30 seconds) but had twice as much fun.

Well one thing this expansion has done...... reminded me why I hate PuGs. I have gone on 2 different non guild randoms and each time, the tank and other dps forged ahead and ran in and gathered all the mobs like this was Utguard Keep and they were in ICC heroic gear. I tried to explain to them that this is back to the way it was in vanilla where you need to use some crowd control but they just said the healer sucks and rage quits or tries to vote kick the healer (and tell me I suck because I didn't wipe like they did because I ran and used invisibility after the idiot tank went down after he let the healer pull agro)

I've made an initial hello macro that tells the tank to mark sheep with a box (my macro'd cc icon) and to say go when ready for the sheep pull. It has helped out a ton. and don't forget to counterspell that lone caster that's outside the tank's pack to help bring it in. every little bit helps.i've also run with tons of other cc capable classes that simply stared blankly when asked to cc. i had a rogue respond last night that sap wasn't on his bars! after watching the rogue finally sap something a few pulls in i think it had to be the rogue's first sap ever (took almost a solid minute to get the sap down).i do welcome the return to BC style trash (at least the trash packs aren't as dense as in vanilla).

I've been in PUGs where we've done full-on marking of mobs and CC, and other groups where it's just like the old WotLK AOE fest. Even for normal dungeons, I can tell you that the latter groups are a nightmare for the healers. There are a LOT of players, tanks in particular, who refuse to adapt to the new dungeons.

As a Shaman I enjoy using the spell that was available to me since wrath and that I never got to use. Hex is amazing! Also I dig the new Bind elemental spell, that sucker alone allowed me to CC 2 mobs most of the time in stone core. And in one run of Vortex Pinacle we had another Shaman with us, and I tell you 2 hexes and 2 bind elementals are awesome :P
