I think that the mastery could be different. All the other healers have masters that are less conditional. If people are at low health our mastery is amazing, but if people arent at low health our mastery does nothing. All the other classes have much more interesting masteries.
I think unleash earthliving should apply earthliving 100% of the time. For some reason I just assumed that was how it was going to work and was stunned that it doesnt.
I miss chain heal. I know it needed to be nerfed for things to work the way you want, but it was a very fun spell and it would be nice for it to be usable in some way again. Maybe more mana efficient with a CD.
I really don't know if any of those ideas are good I just feel like shamans have lost their uniqueness and I would love to see their spirit returned. As a last note I am not saying that shamans are not effective healers or that they need to be buffed, but rather that their mechanics have become dull.
