"The complaint I most often hear used to demonize Blizzard goes something like this: "Blizzard doesn't care about enhancement shaman. We're the redheaded stepchildren of WoW." Beyond just being offensive to the fiery-follicled and to stepparents everywhere, Blizzard does have a history of dealing with enhancement shaman issues."Well, as I recall, they eventually changed the shaman issues when we really began to complain. IIRC, a lot of times on the old forums they denied there were any problems.]I think our lot didn't begin to improve until 3.0 and later.Maelstrom Weapon was a good idea. Getting the totems to drop at once was a good idea. Making our relic slot count as one of each totem was a good idea, allowing us to get rid of those four damn totems in our backpacks.But Blizz really didn't come up with any of these on their own initiative. They were only implemented in the face of a very dissatisfied class being very vocal about it. It was pointed out how ineffective the class had become, and eventually we got changes. But we're talking years of complaining.Now it wasn't all bad. To give Blizz their due, Enh shamans **are** much more fun to play now than they were in TBC and WOLK... something I can't say about my paladin or DK or feral druid. I do appreciate what they did do with the class.But tbh, I don't think it was something they were constantly taking the initiative on.
