# If PvE, what type of PvE? [Heroics/Raids/Other]
Raids in particular
# If PvP, what type of PvP? [Arenas, BGs, Rated BGs]
BGs and some 2V2s
# What are your biggest quality-of-life issues? For instance, no longer requiring ammo could be considered a quality-of-life improvement for hunters.
Totems. I love them, I hate them. A lot of the buffs they provide are just covered elsewhere. An immobile buff just isn't worth the mana most of the time.
Incoming damage in PVP is difficult to deal with. I have a hard time countering stuns, silences, and other similar effects. Cata has been a huge step up though.
# What makes playing your class more fun?
Flinging lightning is much cooler than other elements/spell types. Certainly I enjoy the synergy of my offensive abilities in all 3 trees, especially in Elemental. The Unleashed Lightning glyph was a terrific idea and solved a lot of my problems.
# What makes playing your class less fun?
Shock management: Shocks require good timing and yet there are 3 on a cooldown, they simply take up 3 slots on my bar when I mostly use flame shock.
Relocating totems is a huge frustration when most of my buffs are covered elsewhere. (New totem of wrath was a HUGE step up)
# How do you feel about your “rotation”? (Rotation is the accepted order in which abilities are used to maximum efficiency.)
It's pretty staightforward. Errors can be made and it's not just lightning bolt over and over again. A+
# What’s on your wish list for your class?
Shock combos would be cool. You could combine two of the 3 shocks and reduce the effects of the two. There could be an ability called "Shock" and you could customize what it would entail. Frostfire shock would reduce movement speed by 20% and do half as much damage as flame shock does or combine all 3 for an even lesser effect of each or a whole new effect. (Could also increase cooldown in exchange or integrate wind shear since that's an issue).
Would also love to see some totems turned into buffs or effects that are no longer totems and reduce to something like 3 totems per type to reduce the limitations that come with working with totems.
My unreasonable #1 on the wish list would be no more totems at all. I don't like them, but the other cool stuff about shaman outweighs my hatred for totems. Thrall never drops totems after all.
# What spells do you use the least?
Earthquake (Would use it if it were cheaper and not channeled but rather just a one-time hit)
Totem of Tranquil Mind (I just find healing + resist better)
Thanks for the chance to give feedback.
