Dwarf Shammy Racials

I went ahead and forked out the $25 to no longer be a goat. However, in doing so I lost my 1% to hit and gained...... yes you guessed it gun specialization. I was wondering does Blizzard have any plans on making a more "shammy friendly" racial for the dwarfs?

This reminds me of that scene in Austin Powers where the steamroller is slowly approaching the screaming ground crew guy.

I doubt it.

I honestly can't see why you're even bothering to ask. It's not like Dwarf Shaman are the only class/spec combination with a useless racial ability. I mean, go look at Troll Warlocks. Extra crit chance for bows and throwing weapons. Yeah, that'll do them a lot of good. Orc Warriors. I bet that increased pet damage helping those guys out. What's that, you were a Human Rogue before now - Did you like that 5% Spirit racial?

Honestly.

Well, consider yourself one of the few that counter feral bleeds. :)

Dwarves have 4 racials:

Stoneform
Frost Resistance
Explorer (Archaeology bonus, used to be Find Treasure)
Gun and Mace Specialization (used to just be Gun Specialization)

You get full benefit of Mace Specialization, and the rest are as good (or otherwise) for a Shaman as for anybody else, so stop crying. You already got your more "shammy friendly" racial - back in WotLK, when they added in Mace Specialization to the Gun Specialization we already had.

So...you knowingly race changed to a race that doesn't have good racials (minus stoneform for the occasional feral druid in PvP and mace spec. if you're enhance and happen to have maces) when you've had months to decide?

How is that anybodies fault but your own? Blizzard has said they aren't going to do a pass a racials for a while (if at all). You done goofed.

Dwarf racials suck. Everyone knows this. However, you do realize that there are more classes out there than just shaman and all of them were also effected by a worthless racial. In fact, only hunters ever got a benefit out of it and that was ONLY if they actually were using a gun (and very rarely were they).

If you're going to make a post like this, at least make it about the racial and how it does not help anybody except for the rare gun wielding hunter.

You just love going off topic to get ferals nerfed don't you....

On topic:

BE Wars/DK's don't get anything from Arcane Torrent (Hint: Rogue's do)

An AoE silence is not an advantage to warriors and DK's?

Edit: Not that I agree with the OP that racials should benefit every possible class all the time, but your example is amusing.

The racials don't matter. You swapped to the superior race.

Being dwarf is reward enough. When I get my 'lock and shaman to 85, I'm race changing.

I obviously meant the mana/energy regen & not the silence.

I wish they reverted the stoneform nerf of s5. When tons of arena teams on the arena realm went dwarf to combat hunters and unholy DKs. Such a useless nerf.

I want to be that rare gun wielding hunter!

If only I could get a gun that wasn't significantly weaker than the bows and crossbows available :(

I hope they eventually do address our racials (although for my hunter I'd be happy if they just started itemizing guns in balance to bows and crossbows). I did make my shaman a dwarf, even though the racials are useless to a caster shaman, because I love dwarves. I just wish Blizzard loved them too.
