yeah lets try to kill a healer without silences.


It's call an interrupt.

Please learn the difference of a blanket silence and an interrupt before you come in sounding stupid.
do you realize how much insane healing can be done with instants by pallies?
Have you ever healed on a Shaman? They are literally helpless now for the duration of whatever silence is thrown at them. Useless.

What I do is throw my totem CD's down before I think a silence will hit me. Restoration is at best, decent for PvP now, and the other two specs... I think we all can agree on what the general consensus is.

Everyone who agrees with the totem nerf obviously doesn't heal as a shaman.
Blanket silences are a TERRIBLE design.

You remove them from warriors? But keep them on mages? and DKs?
And priest?

What?

STUPID.

Resto shamans went from good healers, too worst healers.

Stun > 6 sec strang > 5 sec priest silence > Dead


You sir are stupid. We are not the worst healers even if we got a stick up our butt. The totem nerf was harsh but shams are okay. Wish they did a rollback and instead fixed purge glyph, made grounding only redrict spells against the sham, and increased ns back to the cd they had on cata.
Not worst healers at all in 3's or 5's - Mistweaver

There are more disc priests above 2200 than Mistweavers. Tell me shamans are underpowered, please, tell me shamans are UP.

Come here, give me a hug, we'll both get through this together.

Any other monks want to join in on the group hug?

Resto is ok Ele is far from even beign viable
I would like blanket silences in their current form to go away and be replaced.

If you catch someone casting they function just like they do now but if you get juked or use it while the target is not casting it is just a 50% cast time debuff.

I don't know something besides the brainlessness that is the blanket silence.

You do realize that enhance is... in actuality... bad?

The fact this is coming from a warrior just baffles the mind.

Yeah it really isn't, sounds like you're having those trans keyboard-monitor issues.
What you guys are stupid, Enhance is amazing right now, for 15 seconds, every 3 minutes.

People would normally be justifying the nerf for some obscure reason.

Lmao people actually think Shamans are rock-bottom since the change. Sorry your butt hurts after getting kicked off the god pedestal.

Lol.. have you ever played elemental?
No resto shaman with half a brain is saying restoration is bad now. The problem with this nerf is that elemental is worthless as it has ZERO defensives while silenced and only thunderstorm while stunned, which does nothing vs ranged.
