Shaman PvP in 5.1 - are you feeling the pain?
Return to board index
Basically they made one change to shaman specifically for 5.1 and that is that totems are now affected by silences (and presumably school lockouts). This was done to make it easier for players to kill resto shaman, but it's as if no though was given to people who prefer to play as enhancement or elemental.
Elemental shaman and enhancement can now be locked down with a silence. There is no counter for this. Resto shaman can at least recover, but with the change in pvp power, you'll find that being global'd by a mage is quite routine regardless of your spec.
So to anyone else playing a shaman right now in competitive pvp, say 1800+ level in either RBG or arena, how is it for you? Anyone figure out some tricks to help survivability?
I'm going to say that the healing storm glyph is going to have to be swapped in for either glyph of purge or ghost wolf...unfortunately, being able to heal yourself a little better at the expense of mobility or mana efficiency is quite a compromise.
I've heard that Blizzard is seeing to Elemental and Enhancement about the problem with the totems. Right now it's really hard so I guess just tough it out until 5.2.
I literally can not kill anything in PVP if any class is looking for me. Even through I've only started and I'm in the PVP crafted blues I still feel the heat as there is simply nothing for me to do.
