Nov 5th 2007 11:51AM i myself being a 70 shaman, i am completely and utterly discouraged at blizzard's consistant ignorance of the class...even when they are reviewing the class and saying they are "buffing it" they ignore hundreds of good ideas from the community...elitist jerks forums about shamans provided a great point regarding the nerf to the shaman dps...shaman's old lightning bolt/chain lightning ran 3.0 and 2.5 seconds untalented, with 2.0 and 1.5 talented...mages and warlocks complained that for the samd 5 points, shamans got an entire second off their casts, while they only got 0.5...the difference is that the shamans is a 26-30 points into the tree for the 5 point talent, whereas mages and locks require 5 points only, as it's a tier1 talent, thus why the shamans claimed theirs was even, as it required a much larger investment into the tree...i think the earth shock thing, while a huge nerf (as shamans were told a long time ago that we did not get CC due to our interrupt being only 6 second cooldown) in a sense that it is the ONLY way to interrupt...warriors still have MS to reduce healing, mace stun, and a fear...mages have poly still...warlocks have death coil and 2 fears...rogues have blind, gouge, kidney shot, hunters have scatter shot, etc etc...shamans ONLY form of limited control over a fight was earth shock, now it's utterly useless, especially in a group setting
