Here is the problem:
Elemental was already bad because of its lack of defenses, because of the nerf to totems elemental is complete trash. One silence on an ele shaman and you are dead. no astral shift, earthgrab, grounding, healing tide. "But you can off-heal" Healing surge is garbage as ele and destroys your mana.
Now lets not see anymore of this "why play ele if you can go resto" crap
