I am focused more on PvE (raiding) but I also enjoy doing occasional BGs both rated and unrated. I do minimal arena matches.
If PvE, what type of PvE? [Heroics/Raids/Other]
Raiding whatever is the newest content. (currently heroic firelands)
If PvP, what type of PvP? [Arenas, BGs, Rated BGs]
Rated BGs are pretty fun as an elemental shaman as I get frequent opportunities to launch players off of cliffs.
What are your biggest quality-of-life issues? For instance, no longer requiring ammo could be considered a quality-of-life improvement for hunters.
The recent addition of a glyph to allow casting lightning bolt while moving was an amazing addition to my spec for both PvE and PvP.
The 2 set bonus for the current tier allowing almost 100% up time on Fire Elemental totem has served only to highlight how terrible the AI is on the Fire Elemental. Making the Fire Elemental a pet like other classes' summon ally abilities would be a huge improvement.
What makes playing your class more fun?
The burst damage of elemental in PvP is fun, along with the ability to launch groups of players off of tall things. The short CD on my interrupt also makes it fun to manage to get off interrupts while still doing damage.
In PvE the ability to off heal is a nice addition to playing DPS. (Dropping healing rain or self healing to mitigate my own screw ups)
What makes playing your class less fun?
EDIT: I'm dumb and didn't realize not being able to self res is a bug and not a product of battle resurrections.
How do you feel about your “rotation”? (Rotation is the accepted order in which abilities are used to maximum efficiency.)
I like the addition of random procs for lava burst as well as the way fulmination can complicate reapplying my flame shock. I dislike the almost complete uselessness of unleashed weapon. This ability confuses many new players who think it is supposed to be part of the standard DPS rotation.
What’s on your wish list for your class?
Giving fire elemental a pet bar and/or making it a permanent pet.
Replacing earthquake or buffing it to make it worth casting in more circumstances.
Making glyph of stoneclaw totem scale with spell power. It becomes less and less useful over time.
What spells do you use the least?
Unleashed elements, earthquake
