My first choice is the Shaman. I'm just starting to gear up and I have a few questions for some of the experienced Ele's out there; (let me know if any of these are commonly asked questions, I don't frequent the forums)
1. I know we excell in AoE situations but is single target DPS an issue for Ele's? If so, is it permenantly sub-par or does that change after a certain iLvl? (I'm finding it low in the heroics I run)
2. Are we desired for raids or seen as "filler" DPS?
3. Why is our gear, atleast at lower iLvl's, have so much Spirit/Crit or Spirit/___? I know we need hit rating drawn from Spirit but it seems like overkill, or as though the stats were centred around resto. Does this change later on, or is it a non-issue?
I guess what I want to know is if it is worth it in the long run to fully gear this Shaman as Elemental. I know eventually it comes down to preference, but insight from an experienced Elemental would go a long way. I want to love this class, just not sure why yet.
Forgive my ignorance, and thank you for any replies.
