Option (c) is clearly in full effect here. Like the talents for all the other classes, it's pretty obvious these things haven't been through any sort of balancing pass; it's more of a 'this is the sort of thing we're thinking about.'That's almost surely part of why we've got this weird mix of new and exciting abilities juxtaposed with stuff ripped out of the cookie cutter version of a spec on live.I find it more interesting to think about what they're going to be doing to totems, since the devs said something to the effect that all the long-term buff totems were going away, to be replaced with more powerful, short term things. Which implies something like Strength of Earth, instead of being a 'drop it once, use it all fight' sort of thing, will instead be a DPS cooldown. Watch out for whatever they do to prevent rampant shaman stacking, which might be as simple as totems often only affecting the shaman to some screwy debuff scheme like Bloodlust.Although if we're going to be constantly dropping various totems, one can only hope many of them end up off the GCD.
