Anyone happy with Elemental PvP?
Now that people have pvp gear the burst is gone so all you have is average at best damage but probably the worst survivability of any spec in the game which means pvp amounts to frustration and zero fun.
I should have known from the second I saw our talents compared to other classes that we would be bottom of the barrel and not wasted time.
I love healing, but I was kind of looking forward to pvp as ele. This makes me sad. I guess I'll just have to heal.
I know for a fact when I lay into a group everyone takes notice. Of course they immediately all make a beeline straight for me and I usually end up being murdered. Though I have managed to live a long time with a pocket healer.
All in all I am happy with both ele and resto.
Besides you never reallly see ele shine till later on in the season when all the resto shammies get geared and switch specs. Then its OMG ELLE SHAMMY JUST TWO SHOT ME IF FULL ARENA GEAR.
Compared to overall PvP buffs to other classes - we are not as strong.
That said, our skill ceiling has increased drastically with the simple addition of totemic projection and stronger cd-based totems.
Compared from Cata elemental to MoP elemental, we are golden - 100x better.
His point was that Elemental as a spec itself has improved in personal mechanics from Cataclysm until now. The problem is that due to adjustments and the new talent system, other classes got far more out of their changes and Elemental got left behind again.
That doesn't mean we're good. We did have improvements. Our improvements just got overtaken by everyone else's new toys....Our 87 ability and last talent being raw damage output boosts have a bit to do with that.
MoP. Lol, this is just pitiful, there is not ONE class an Ele can beat. The only way to win a duel is putting a fully pvp geared shaman against a fresh level 90. I am extremely disappointed with blizzard and what they decided to do with shamans. Yes they added Elemental Blast but the only way to be successful is by getting multiple procs WITH mastery kicking in at the same time WITH ascendance and spiritwalkers grace. Literally it takes FULL potential of all elements of an ele shaman to even do decent. Blizzard, how can you possibly allow Frost mages and hunters to take complete control over any class and destroy them before even being touched; yet let an ele shaman only hit 30k crits and get demolished by any class in the game. I don't care what anyone says about ele being good. They're god awful right now.
Try resto if you don't like it.
Don't like resto or enhance.. seems like this class isn't for you.
What am I supposed to do when im out questing? I play on a PvP server and have to defend myself, so what then?
Why even create gear to collect and a PvP set for this spec if its not even intended to be used?
