@ira.domineWhich is why Resto Druids dominate every single fight in Firelands except for Baelroc.Which is why Resto Shamans are routinely sat for Resto Druids because in almost every scenario, bringing a Resto Druid - regardless of skill level - is just plain BETTER for your raid than bringing a Resto Shaman.I want you to take a look at this: http://www.worldoflogs.com/rankings/players/Firelands/hps/Browse for a bit.Notice a pattern? Oh wait...the leaf, and the bear paw. On every single page. On every single fight except for Baelroc (and, gee golly - they're even showing up there on 10 mans!).Notice an absence? Oh wait, was that Resto Shamans that are missing? Why yes. In fact, Resto Shamans only have ONE fight where they are parsing. There are a total of THREE rated in the Top 10 for for Majordomo 25 man Normal. And only ONE rated in the top 10 for Majordomo 25 man Hardmode.This is the fight that is supposed to be our BEST fight, and it's completely and utterly DOMINATED by Resto Druids.And you know? SO IS EVERY OTHER ENCOUNTER other than Baelroc (which is uniformly going to Disc Priests, because of how their class interacts with the fight mechanics). Resto Shamans don't even show up on Heroic Rags until #94 on the listing (the next one is #228 in the listing, lol). There are 85 Resto Druids parsing on Heroic Rags. #31 on Heroic Beth'tilac (one of only TWO in the top 100). There are 91 Resto Druids in the top 100 on that parse list. Rhyolith Heroic has FOUR Resto Shamans parsing in the top 100. There are 92 Resto Druids in the top 100 on that parse list.It gets worse if you consider 10 man heroics. There is not a single - not even one - Resto Shaman in the top 100 for Heroic Rags. There is a single - that's right, JUST ONE - non-Druid parsing for the top 100 for Heroic Beth'tilac. Unsurprisingly, it's a Disc Priest. Every other parse in the top 100 list is a Resto Druid. I'm not kidding - it's every single one. In fact, you can go for pages with only seeing Resto Druids, with a few Disc Priests and the very occasional Resto Shaman interspersed here and there. Alysrazor Heroic does not have a single Shaman parsing in the top 100. Heroic Rhyolith has exactly ONE. There are 97 Resto Druids in the top 100 for Heroic Rhyolith on 10 man. Majordomo - arguably the STRONGEST fight for a Resto Shaman - has the highest number of Resto Shaman parsing at seven. There are SEVENTY-EIGHT Resto Druids in the top 100.Even in the fights where Resto Shaman are supposed to be the strongest, we simply cannot compete with Resto Druids at this time. The only ones who can are Holy Paladins and, to an extent, Disc Priests. No class should be able to dominate content the way Resto Druids are currently dominating.So, you can scream to the high heavens that GC is wrong, and you guys don't need a nerf because Shamans are SO MUCH BETTER at everything than you. But the simple fact of the matter is that the numbers are telling a completely different story. Thankfully, GC apparently has noticed. Sorry, but the nerf bat comes for everyone - even you.
