Dude, you need to calm down over Purge. Shadow Priests still have Dispel Magic; it's incredibly unlikely we're losing Purge.Water Breathing? Sorry. Can't get worked up over a spell I haven't used since Wrath launched and gave us the longer breath bars. I'm not saying I want it gone, btw; I just don't see any point to it. YMMV.See again how they're not finished yet. By all means, point out what's not there: examples include Purge and Water Breathing that you've already mentioned; others include all the five minute totems. Or rather the replacement abilities for the five-minute totems, since we've been told that the current plan is to make stuff like Strength of Earth, Windfury, Flametongue/Totemic Wrath, and Wrath of Air auras. And yes, I'd be surprised if we end up with caster shamans able to give out Windfury/Strength or enhance shamans giving out Flametongue/Wrath of Air. People complained continually about dealing with totems. Soon it'll be time to complain about losing flexibility.And yeah, I'm annoyed by the seeming reversal of the community; on the other hand, I'd bet that the folks complaining now are not the same folks that were complaining before, so it's not really fair to be annoyed. (sigh) It's just that a lot of these moves are fairly obvious responses to some long-term gripes of (vocal fractions of) the community.
