Posted by Aperion
I see people using Hybrid all the time Shamans are not Hybrids. The definition of a Hybrid is a class that can fill all roles(Dps-Tank-Heals) right now there are only 3 hybrids in the game Druid Paladin and Monk. Please dont say that because you can heal or DPS your a hybrid because that would Imply that DKs warriors are hybrids cuz they can Tank and DPS.
That said Shaman lack Mobility. We have to hard cast everything and our only 2 spamable spells are Lightning bolt and chain lightning and they do very weak dmg compared to other spells like Arcane shot,Ice lance,fel flame,moonfire ect.
That and we have Very low CC. Hex and roots thats it Thunderstorm is LOL since most classes can just get right back to ya without losing sight of you or dmg. And our stun is the WEAKEST stun ib the game takes too much setup for little reward compared to other classes.
we have hardly ANY way of getting away from enemies. Mages have blink,ice block,Invisibility. Druids have shapeshift,sprint,Displacer beast. Warlocks have Portal,Gateway,Demonic leap.
The BIGGEST problem is when we get silenced. Silence might as well be another stun for us we can do nothing. And some classes get two silence so not much we can do against them but stand there and Die.
there is WAY too much to cover but long story short Elem needs a Total revamp. We our outdated and out classed by too many classes today.
Gonna get some hate but just my opinion FLAME ON!
