Aug 31st 2009 12:06AM Really, I would have loved Dreanei Warlocks...
I mean c'mon, even the Dreanei have had bad eggs before, and to the extent on how far people will go to "do what is right."
Aug 7th 2009 1:35AM 1. It needs voice acting, it is way too dull and bland to be honest, especially on what Blizzard could do, they really could have spiced it up a bit more.
2. The Priestess to be honest is my favorite boss, just due to the fact of bringing back old raid bosses or horrible fight encounters is always something to chuckle about and say "remember when we did this?"
3. An option to skip all the talk. I know it sounds bad, and I'm a lore person, but let's face it, it does get dull after the second time going in, and not everyone is interested in reading text.
4. More lore behind it, and meaning...I know that we are supposed to "proving" ourselves to be the best of the best...But beating on, and killing argent crusaders makes sense?
Jul 19th 2009 5:38PM The funny thing is Elemental on the forums aren't asking for huge buffs, just minor tweaks.
-ToW buff to be changed into our fire totems some how, or make it an "upgraded" version of searing and also giving the buff.
-Mobility in PvE is still a big issue, due to a lot of the fights, including Algalon require lots of movement.
-Itemization to be better, flat out.
-Stat to scale upon, such as Intel to SP, or even hit.
Personally one thing that I think has elemental on a short leash is FS and LvB. Blizzard, in my opinion, has put way too much emphasis on these two abilities, and personally I think they are trying to avoid Elemental to be a "burst" caster in the arena scene.
Jul 12th 2009 5:07AM If you're considering that Elemental DPS will increase due to Wind Shock being now the only interrupt and not sharing the CD with ES is going to increase our DPS in PvE you're sorely mistaken.
The only actual time I will ES a boss is General Vezax, and most of the time, the melee have all the Interrupts on the down low.
Most, and if not all of the changes for shaman are directed to Restoration (mostly) and Enhancement. To be honest, it's pretty disappointing. Since I was expecting Elemental mobility/ranged AoE/ and ToW being put into a fire totem.
The change to ES is some what laughable though, it reminds of the time were they started thinking of giving Flametongue an MS effect.
Jun 24th 2009 11:49PM As much as it is to be fun, he does reply to too many posts that are aimed at his ego, more then constructive posts.
Jun 21st 2009 4:40AM Hopefully it's not all the changes.
Elemental does need the help, hybrid tax or not, I shouldn't be out done by people in lower gear then myself. Which scares me when more people in my guild get more geared, right now I'm sitting at 4/5 Conq, and still get out done by classes IN THEIR NAX gear. Half the time I think the only reason why I'm brought to the raid is because I'm the "smart DPSer who doesn't stand in the bad stuff", I really don't know why my guild brings me to raids, or why I even get the opportunity to do DKP bids when others classes shine.
I think THAT'S the issue with elemental, were we were a great assest to buffing casters DPS, people loved us. Now we're a buffing class in a non-buffing class game. Warlocks bring a better spell DMG increase, boomkins have a constant active buff compared to ours which procs, crit bonus from ToW gets over ridden by others, the amount of dismay I have for a class I've loved for the past three and a half years of playing is slowly making me hate that rolled a shaman in the first place.
For mobility, the ghostwolf change and totem placement is not going to help elemental shaman what so ever, you heard it from GC himself saying that shaman were like turrets and they wanted to fix that, YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING WHEN YOUR A DOG, I wonder if people understand that yet. On top of that, if we're supposed to be turrets, then let us have some defensive ability, besides a broken knock back, and a proc effect that only helps us if we have a healer with us.
I love shaman, I have three, all who are in Northrend, and Elemental is my main, but the lack of anything being done to help at all with the spec is demoralizing and making me want to re-roll.
Jun 17th 2009 4:54PM I do love seeing changes coming, on top of the totem changes, but what worries me is that it feels as though the other two specs are being left out. Even on the Q&A it seemed there was more talk about restoration then anything else, and it feels like that now.
I'm just hoping more happens for the other specs as well.
Jun 14th 2009 8:27PM I got the hard back recently, and I have all the issues as well. Compared to the World of Warcraft comic, to where I only wait until the hard back is released then go buy it. (Since I did not nearly enough enjoy them compare to Ashbringer).
It's great, if you're a lore junky buy it, don't even second think it.
