Breakfast Topic: What's your favorite class ability?

When I started playing a shaman, it was partially because I wanted to try my hand at a caster again, and partially because I remembered enjoying the class when I tried it out back in vanilla. Of course back then I was enhancement, and this time I chose elemental for leveling purposes -- but I figured if I didn't really enjoy ranged casting, I could always flip back to melee and play the class that way. What I didn't expect was how much I'd enjoy elemental, and the experience of being a casting class again. Sure, I've played both mages and warlocks, but there's something inherently cool about playing a shaman.

And by "inherently cool," I mean "I really enjoy using chain lightning on giant groups of mobs and watching them get zapped." It's my favorite part about the class ... or it was until I saw the new spell animation for Fulmination on the beta. For those that don't play shaman, here's what you need to know: Fulmination stacks with your Lightning Shield. When you reach 20 stacks of Fulmination, you can hit Earth Shock, and all those charges of Lightning Shield will be packed on to your hit. On the beta, this Earth Shock is also accompanied by a gigantic, gorgeous strike of lightning, as shown in the image above.

Every class has an ability like that, though -- an ability or spell that is so iconic, so ridiculously fun to use, or just plain incredibly cool to look at that you want to use it as often as possible. So I'm wondering -- what's your favorite class spell or ability? What's that one thing that makes the class you play just a little more cool than the rest? What makes that ability so much fun to use? Is it the animation, the amount of damage it puts out, or some other fun factor?
