SP, Elem Sham or Drood...?
Return to board index
Will try to make long story short.
1. Been away from the game since WOTLK
2. I'm looking for a RANGED dps class that can heal as dual spec
3. This shortens the list to Priest (shadow + disc or holy) , Shaman (Resto + Elem), Drood (Resto + balance)
I'd love to get some updated views on how those classes perform - from the DPS point of view, focusing on PVE...
I'm a rather casual gamer, so "level all 3 and see by yourself" is not really an option unfortunately - and i'm aiming at 5-man and maybe the occasional 10, but no big raiding for me...
Any good tips?
I'm a boomkin all the way. Regardless, this is more of a personal preference for you than anything else.
Thanks for your answer.
But to be honest, even after reading all the changes (actually probably not even all of them) i have troubles pinning the real differenciator between those classes :-/
Boomkin all the way, ok, so what do you think make the difference vs sham or SP? :-)
I've just always been a boomkin. I know little about SP and my shammy I barely play, though I've never enjoyed her. Mostly because I don't care to throw totems down all the time (which happens less now in MoP but still enough to be annoying to me).
Well if your only going to be doing 5 mans and the occasional 10 mans , maybe a Druid would be best .
If you get bored of dpsing then you could always go try healing or tanking .
You should make your decision based on style as dps leaders come and go with patches and hotfixes.
Druid: You can be a laserchicken that uses the eclipse system (lunar and solar) to empower arcane and nature damage spells, respectively. Druid heals are HoT-centric, and the druid can battle rez.
Shaman: Elemental shamans pew pew lightning and fire. Resto healing is pretty varied, although your AoE is pretty strong with chain heal and healing rain. To play most effectively you'll want to learn how to properly time all your new totem CDs in MoP.
Priest: Shadow and holy or disc are very thematically different. Obviously as shadow you'll do a lot of shadow damage and dots are big part of your damage. As healer you can choose between holy (more 'traditional') and disc, which focuses on shielding damage.
I tried Shadow Priest and Ele shaman, and I prefer the shaman.
Shadow priest just has too many defensive CDs and only one (partially) offensive, which I don't like in a DPS spec.
I have a balance druid but she's stuck in Stormwind processing all the herbs the shaman mails back.
