The Wind Shear change will absolutely gut me as an enhance shaman. One of my primary duties as a raider is lead interrupter. I take pride in my Wind Shear aptitude and how effectively I can use it, thereby increasing my entire raid's efficiency. A 25-second cooldown is just abysmal.One more reason for enhance shaman not to be brought to raids anymore.

You can, and probably should, spec into reverberation to put Wind Shear at the same 5 second CD its at now. This change is aimed 100% at resto shaman in PVP.

But if you spec into reverb as a PVE enhance shaman you lose 3% bonus damage to fire, nature, and frost spells. =(

You can still talent wind shear to 6 sec, so we only lose 1 sec. The change is to nerf resto pvp, who will now have to choose between insta-gw and reverb for 6 sec interrupt.

But Duck is right; I've got to repurpose those two points in Elemental that provide extra damage and put them into Reverb to gain back a spell CD that I just lost. I hope this doesn't make it to live :(
