I'm really going to miss windshear on my resto shammy. I run mostly 5 mans and really like having that interrupt to dampen some of the incoming damage. Looking at recount I usually top the interrupts chart. Convincing DPS to interrupt is not easy. I run enhancement as an OS and look forward to the new lava lash spreading of flame shock. Based on Ghostcrawler's assement I'm not expecting a DPS buff, but I can keep my fingers crossed.

If you read the Shaman section of the "why did we do this" blog by GC he states that Enhance will still have the short CD on Wind Shear, so you can still be an interrupting machine as Enhancement. 9/10 of the time I don't have the GCD for an interrupt as a Resto shammy, I'm usually too busy trying to keep the idiots.... I mean DPS alive along with the tank in LFD, seriously people, get the eff out of the fire.

I also make frequent use of Wind Shear when healing 5-man PUGs. I can save myself quite a bit of healing by interrupting some boss spells, such as Tears of Blood on the panther boss. Hopefully, more melee DPS and tanks will wisen up and interrupt those like they should.

Yeah, fights like Venoxis. Would you rather heal through a Whispers of Hethiss, or just interrupt every one of the things?I understand why the change was made, but I don't have to like getting PvP splorch all over my PvE.

You do still HAVE the interrupt though, unlike the other three healers, which have none. Paladins do have a stun, but that's no use if the boss is immune to stuns. Good use of Wind Shear, even on a 26s cooldown, could make your life as a healer much better.

Skarn, rebuke is baseline for Pallies now. So yes... Paladin healers have an interrupt.

1) What is this "mitigate damage" y'all are talking about?? I run 5s and the occasional 10. If the DPS and tanks I run with were competent and did their interrupts, they might not run with me. a/k/a I am using my shear while healing to do other's interrupts.2) My PvE shaman is nerfed because the dozens of WoW arena players think wind shear is OP??????? I find this soooooo frustrating. I will feel such a feeling of satisfaction when these developers are unemployed. I have not encountered any customers, outside of a devblog author, who thinks PvP motivated nerfs of PvE is a good idea.
