How are you doing in PvE?
How are you doing in PvP? Can you arena/duel/BG decently? I know from all the forum complaints I have seen over the years that you lack survivability but can that be overcome with the casting-while-moving kiting and such?

Idk, i hear a lot of people complaining but honestly i have no complaints with pvp. You just have to be prepared and remember to use all the available tools you have.
for example elemental bind is great for mages/other shamans and their elemental minions
before every fight i put up stone bulwark totem and healing stream
if your fighting a spellcaster remember to use your grounding totem (in my case i have the glyph to reflect it.)
thunderstorm if your stunned
use windshear when possible
if you see a flag you wanna cap and its all alone chances are their is a rouge so get in the habit of dropping a magma totem or earthquake along with a healing stream just in case.
for priests.... purge, purge, purge, purge (you can purge their shield) lol
if you suspect you will be fighting more than one person drop healing tide totem instead of healing stream
use hex when you are overwhelmed or need time to heal
remember to use your elemental guardian totems in fights, they are very powerful and make a huge difference.
oh and probably the most important thing if you wanna be good. learn to not click the action bars to cast your spells. Learning to use key bindings makes a huge difference.
Honestly shamans are extremely situational. We can't use the same tactics for every situation. Sure we no longer can drop totems if we are silenced, but all that means is we have to be prepared BEFORE the battle even begins, analyze the situation, plan your attack accordingly.
