Which brings me to my next topic, shamans do !@#$ burst compared to golden apple that is still hunters, warriors, mages, and warlocks. They who I had just named, have ridiculous amounts of room to mess up while also being able to maintain a significant amount of burst damage. Whereas we shamans[as explained prior] have little room to mess up against with most classes with how hard we get hit for and how little our heals and damage negating effects actually do.
Examples of this pertain to arenas especially, all teams my friend and I go against usually have the leisure of literally shouting "Geronimo!" as they charge in without a worry knowing they have defensive CDs that allow them to mess up and not have to play very well. While we may have come up with new strategies that work against these types of teams, we're always going up against a team at one point or another that with literally in 2 seconds time has gotten my shaman down half or more than half.
The team who's in charge of the classes of World of Warcraft, please at the very least buff shaman damage that ISN'T Ascendance by 10% and allow our totems to be used whilst silenced. Best regards, Wolf.
