Need an opinion on the class
Return to board index
Has the class changed much since MoP hit? I mean, I know the changes but is it more or less fun to play? Im stuck between lvling my monk to 90 or the shamy. The monk is 70 and the shamy is 85 so the shamy has the favour :P I wanted to try a monk in the same way as the shamy. A kind of natural class which revolves around spirit and nature. Imo the shamy class has always been awsome and fun so hands up for it. Just wondering if Monk is more fun compared. Anyone has any inputs?
Yeah ofc i tried the monk since its 70. But im starting to think shamy is more fun at 90.
Cloudy thread I know... But its earlly :P And thanks for any feedback
Resto hasn't changed all too much.
Elemental I only know a little from leveling up, but I think it's pretty similar as well.
Can't talk about Enhancement.
The biggest change in our repertoire is the totems, as they provide short-term buffs and effects on a cooldown rather than buffs that you need to have up all the time.
i'm having a blast as resto. the main difference for me is using (and tracking) all the new cooldowns available to us.
shaman are very flexible healers, having big GHW bombs combined with powerful raid heals like healing rain, smart trickle heals like HST, strong cooldowns in the form of HTT and ascendance, or crazy HPS in the form of healing surge (only useful on gara'jal so far).
the only thing we really lack is a strong damage reduction cooldown.
sorry, haven't played a monk so i can't compare.
Thanks for the honest replies tho :) Anyone tried pvping? Forgot to mention that was my intention :P
Fun is subjective. However, resto shaman is the best healer in pvp at the moment. This is due to a combination of many things like synergy with the good classes and the monstrous amount of utility they have.
- Tremor, windwalk and grounding totem (very strong especially when dispels have a cd)
- Unleash life and totems can be used while silenced
- Double purge
- CC is a bit of a wash because other healers gained a lot more cc
- Very high raw single target hps and some passive healing for when you're ccd
