Elemental verse Elementals

90 Tauren Shaman
I have a concern about Cata.. How many things in the expac are going to be immune to nature damage and/or fire damage? The elemental invasion has been a reminder of how frustrating air and earth elementals are for elemental shaman to kill. Now I know this is a short term event but if there are bunch of fights against things that are immune to nature (and to a lesser extent fire) things are going to suck for elemental.

Please say that in Cata elementals will bot be immune to schools of damage.

I'd like to see some resistance on bosses, even if the immunities are removed.

I can't think of any Elementals I saw while leveling up that were immune to fire or nature, and there were both Fire and Earth elemental creatures.

No idea if that implies that things in instances and bosses will always follow that, but it's a good sign.

It would be best if they went back and removed all the elemental immunities, though. Not being able to CC a rock elemental because your CC spell is nature-based in a lower-level dungeon can be a pain too.

So far in cata, I have not experienced any damage immunities. Though there have been ele's immune to bind elemental. Whether that is a nature resist, or game mechanic for the encounter remains to be seen.

Rest assured our days of trying to kill Air/earth Elementals with only flame shock, searing totems, and poking them with a flame tongued dagger are days of the past. Though the current Elementals included in the events have been cut/paste from lower levels, and still have their immunities.

That is a huge relief... I was getting annoyed using magma/fire nova/lava burst to knock out earths and I was being to imagine whole zones or instances of that... awful...

And some resistances on bosses would be fine... immune sucks though
