Aug 22nd 2011 8:47AM I once logged a friends account off , stripped naked and drowned in the thunder bluff pond .
All his gear was banked and his entire bags were full of heavy leather balls
( bags were smaller in those days)
Jun 25th 2011 5:53AM Hrmm my lengthy post just managed to delete itself ... thanks chrome ,
Im sure a skilled enhance shammy who has reasonable gear and progress and is comfortable with going outside the basic"hit it like its a target dummy dps role" would be sought after by many many guilds
Right now a lot of guilds are struggling with summer attendance issues so i'd have thought you would be snapped up by quite a few guilds i know we are looking for an enhance shammy in legio exisio Horde side on Frostmane EU ready for firelands and to kill some more heroic bosses before it .
As for being a female wow player that definitely shouldn't be an issue , our recruitment officer is female as is our top healer the stigma that girls cant or aren't good at wow is just a plain faced LIE find an guild who doesn't live in the stone ages .
Jun 22nd 2011 12:54PM Awesome , i quite liked the squeaky voiced goblin seemed right for an evil minion type

Preserve? ...... Why ? There's no truth in it .... No no no ... only in the taking! I see that now !
Finish it! Finish it ! Kill me, or I swear by the Dragonqueen you'll never see
Not the greatest boss fight in the world, Keristraza final boss in nexus . But her voice gives me chills.
Apr 13th 2010 6:20AM does anyone else notice that it looks like a lot of abilities from league of legends , are creeping into wow .
teemo > moonkin mushroom
taric > radiance ( i know this is a suggestion)
karthas > frozen fog (mage )
i wonder what game the blizz devs have been playing ;-) in their spare time .
Mar 21st 2010 8:09AM A Good article that has summed up a lot of the issues with the spec without bias, crazy fix op suggestions like Earthquake or resorting to name calling.
The idea's of incorporating Tow , with searing / magma totem has been around since late burning crusade , its a great idea but I think blizzard have back benched it. In my opinion this is because they want classes to make choice between self buffing the raid and buffing your personal dps ( think warlocks curse of elements or curse of omg wtf pew pew more ) Blizzard love these kind of tough choice mechanics.
The shield issue inst new either i've always thought it stank of lazy development i imagine the conversation to have gone something like this
* Chief Dev* " Ok so Water for resto they love mp5 , lightning for enhance like a passive static aura , *assistant developer writes it all down frantically then asks* ... "but but what about elemental sir" * Chief dev* "They use mana right .. they can use that .
This lead to Min-Maxer's like myself trying to use lightning on Brutallus as a minor minor dps increase when we were pushing for against the timer pre nerf, and again using it on blood queen as there is so much raid damage and movments its a viable use of gcd
Elemental shamans spamming lightning bolt ( the only viable spell back in the day) still suffered from no viable way to spend their existing mana.
I love the idea of having other "element's to do damage for " ELEMENTAL" but like many good ideas See *Spirit badger totems*
Its not gonna happen .
Feb 2nd 2010 8:52PM I Agree , to an extent with the holy pala who posted earlier , i join as a healer for my two frost badges , as an ele / resto raider most of the time a i get healer as my role
its my job to keep them alive as best i can .
Ive found a way to keep this challenging i heal as elemental , dpsing in the between time
( providing the instance isnt to hard or the tank not defense capped )
It adds an extra demension , for me , whilst providing more dps to the mix which can somtimes be lacking .
Dec 4th 2009 12:35PM I too am an ele shammy in a pretty focused endgame guild ive played ele / resto since the bad old days where we had one viable spell to spam and sticking with it through think or thin and im not really one to "Q" but i completely agree with katalyna so far as the role elemental has fallen to .
I didnt think it was as bad as "glyphing healing stream because it brought more hps to the fight, if you play perfectly on a good day when you dont have to move too much , or manage to avoid getting locked out from nature you still dont compare to the compared the the 6k, 7k'even some at 8k that the others pull without too much trouble yes even other hybrids ( boomers ret's ferals in comparable gear.)
On anub heroic , I dps in the race phases ... when 3 comes around they want me to blow bloodlust and help off HEAL ... yes in ele spec and ele gear its more benefical for me to provide extra healing in p3 than to dps the boss "great utility ... or broken nature of the spec / gear
Now other classes provide the same .... somtimes BETTER buffs our 5hp totems feel outdated , and blizzard using them as a crutch to explain our shoddy itemisation and dps abilitys is pretty pathetic
