I've heard about 'the dreaded shaman's windfury weapon' from vanilla.Can someone please explain that. (I think it's even in my old manual somewhere!)How dreaded was it??

Each proc of WF (which launched extra attacks) also had a chance of proccing WF. You could have a runaway chain reaction which could one-shot a person.I remember my level 40 warrior was attacked by a level 29 Horde shaman and almost lost because of that.

Shamans were actually something of a pvp powerhouse at various points in Vanilla to the point where they got accused of being the most OP class.This was due more to some quirks of mechanics than any inherent strengths. There were a few factors at play.In Vanilla, enhancement shamans used big, slow two handers and wind fury weapon was affected by weapon speed. Secondly, wind fury could proc off itself.Thirdly, there was no resilience.This meant an pvp enhancement shaman with an arcanite ripper could theoretically one shot you, though this did not actually last that long.They also had Frost Shock and Earthbind totem which were frankly terrifying before diminishing returns.
