I don't believe Blizzard has figured out how to make the transition from 'support' class to a class that actually can compete on the meters. Cataclysm has been real hard to deal with so far in the fact that we don't bring unique buffs to the raid anymore and we can't use them to explain our way into raids anymore. We've seen Blizzard try, and fail, at buffing our AoE DPS and our single target DPS is about middle of the pack, putting us toward the bottom of the charts on most fights. But overall, and this is the biggest issue in my book, I've found myself having more fun with my alts than I have with my shaman. That's never happened to me before and I don't see much hope in the current patch notes for 4.2. And yes our dps will be going up in the next patch just because pretty much everyone else, even those specs that need nerfs, are getting nerfed to some degree. But they did something like that back in Wrath and it failed miserably. So I'm currently getting my hunter ready for the Firelands release here soon because I'm sure that, even though they've been hit with the nerf bat as well, that I won't feel so hopeless about my class like I do right now.
