Oct 21st 2008 9:15PM Elemental is horrible dps at the moment, it has zero scaling with non fire damage.
Unless they buff fire damage by about 100% for elemental, we're going to be relegated to speccing enhance. Even resto is looking pretty bad mana efficiency/single target healing wise.
Oct 21st 2008 9:13PM The tooltip is a bug.
It works on a PPM basis and only works with LHW, HW, CH, LB and CL.
Oct 21st 2008 8:51PM I don't know about you guys, but I play this game for fun, not gear.
Gear is immaterial, it is nothing but lines of code.
The experience I get from downing bosses is what I play this game for. Coordinating 25 people to do something nearly seamlessly I amazing.
Oct 21st 2008 8:22PM Let me clear something up.
Tolerance is NOT THE CORRECT WORD.
I am not "tolerant" of gay people, I am not "intolerant". I simply have no problem with it.
Tolerance assumed that you do have a problem, but you're suppressing it to not look socially awkward.
I tolerate a child crying near me, I tolerate homophobes in trade chat because I know any opposition to them will just make them stronger.
I tolerate people like amaxe, because I know I cannot in anyway influence their point of view.
I tolerate bad players.
I do not tolerate gay people, because I have no problem with them and I never will.

And spelling has nothing to do with the quality of the journalism.
Sep 20th 2008 1:16AM NO.
Shamans talents all point toward dual weild.
The 2H thing is just a novelty or for pre 40 shamans.
Please dont bring shit like this up.
Sep 16th 2008 9:12AM Truth. High level talents that do don't scale are killing that class.
Sep 16th 2008 8:56AM The reason they need to do competitive dps is because buffs dont stack anymore.
Let me use enhancement as an example.
Deathknights now have every major buff that an enhancement shaman can give, AND they can tank. The only reason to bring an enhancement shaman now would be for DPS. It would fit with blizzards current mindset to make sure that buffer/support (When was the last time you saw a retadin heal?) classes can do competitive DPS.
The concept of pure dps classes is asinine. No class is pure anything.
Rogues bring CC, evasion tanking, and in wrath a MD effect.
Hunters bring MD, kiting, CC, etc.
You could make the assertion that any of these classes are support classes in one way or the other.
Just because someone can spec into a different raid roll else doesn't make it a support class.
