Why Blizzard is nerfing Shamans.

Arenas
Post Limit:
They want to truely see how tough we are. Most shamans stick by their main through thick and thin.

Blizzard...

Come at me bro.

P.S. And also how about some blues actually respond to the threads about the shaman nerfs instead of deleting the threads. /cry

Because they've been the most overall strongest class for a few years

They say it's impossible to post something so stupid on the internet that everyone reading it would know you were joking. Grats on proving them wrong.

4 years of a being a dominant class


Nobody gives a crap about being a dominate healer.
rshaman's need some adjustments but this is ....well poorly thought out, in other words typical blizz.

Hmm lets see.

Season 8: Extremely dominant class, Ele spec

ALL OF CATA: Extremely dominant class, Resto spec. Highest class arena representation all expansion.

Now: Still dominant in resto, now very strong Enhance.

Forgot about beast cleave too. Make that 4 years of a being a dominant class

Also would like to mention, take a look at the championships. Almost every !@#$ing team has a shaman, one even has TWO.


elemental while good in s8 it was hardly "dominant"
beastcleave got nerfed faster then anything else ever has been to date.
enhancement playable? the tragedy!
yes shaman's are still a top notch healer, but lets keep things into perspective shall we.

I don't know what you're trying to argue here, everything you have said just confirms what I said.

I'm not complaining that shamans are OP, even though resto most likely is. My point is that Shamans have been an extremely strong class, and maintained top representation for 4 years. Which is true.

Anyways, on a positive foot I agree with you that the blanket change to totems isn't the way to fix rshams. The spec should be singled out, not all specs.


by your logic, dks "deserve" to be less then 2% rep and rogues even less, further more 4 seasons + mop don't equal 4 years

By my logic? How so? I believe that every class should be balanced and previous seasons should have no say in the matter.

Never did I say that shamans should be nerfed to underpoweredness. I believe they should be balanced, which means a nerf but not severe enough to gimp the class.

And DKs are already at 2-3% rep FYI.
DKs have like a 6% rep according to:
http://www.crossladder.com/arena/stats/

But no, dks aren't in a great shape either at the moment.

and yet you are twisting old season info (in fact flatly misrepresenting it) to justify current shaman nerfs, that is very opposite of what you just said.

Sigh.

I'm not using that to justify nerfs, I'm simply stating facts. I believe that shamans deserve nerfs because they are overpowered in their current state.

But NOT nerfs to underpoweredness like you so claim that I'm claiming. Nerfs to a BALANCED STATE, which SHOULD start with the removal of the purge glyph
Shamans are technically being nerfed with that totem change. It now prevents shamans from dropping spirit link or even a healing tide while silenced.

I don't play a shaman much myself, but that change sounds huge.
*EDIT* due to double post, chrome decided to have a heartattack.
I'm pretty sure there would have been a better way to tweak resto shaman than this...Maybe make there mastery scale a bit less or something i donno. This change just seemed a tad bit strange to me.
