Astral Shift Change request

Shaman
Currently Astral Shift is 40% damage reduction for 6 seconds on a 2 minute cd. I would really like to see shaman have the cd allow for more survivability or the ability to soak something dangerous like dispersion. The best change I could recommend is making it 70% reduction at the very least.
If AS were ever buffed to 70% they would have to split its damage reduction so that it only worked on physical or magical damage. Not both.

If AS were ever buffed to 70% they would have to split its effect between the three specilization makeing only enhancement and elemental receive 70% dmg reduction and resto keeping 40% as to not make resto over the top.

p.s we need changes in our specilization that deviate depending on the spec this generalized talent system we have is so dam sloppy. Some talents are not even viable while some feel mandatory.
70-90% spell reduction rather then 40% damage reduction would be a very nice change, would allow enhancement shaman to be more viable in pve where classes like rogues/mages/shadow priests are brought because of their ability to soak large amounts of damage. Atm 40% damage reduction on a 2 minute cooldown for 6 second duration seems pretty weak.
