I'm a hunter thinking of trying a shaman, thoughts?
Return to board index
Title says it all, I'm rather new to wow and have only played a hunter - all the way up to normal raids, but our guild is a little slow, only 3/6 on MV. In looking to diversify and the fact our guild doesn't have any shamans, I was thinking of trying one out.
Does low-level play represent high-level play at all - ie, how high should I level before really deciding if being a shaman is for me?
How are Resto shaman's doing as healers? I'd be my first healing role, would it be a good one to try to out with regards to that?
Thanks for any info!
I now have 4 toons the newest being a Enhancement Shaman and I love playing him he does great damage /DPS and is not that hard to play out of all my toons I would have to say that my shaman is my number one favorite I have been playing Wow for almost 2 years now don't be afraid to try new things if you don't like it you can always hit the DELETE button. I hope I was able to help with your question.
I cant tell you much on healers Im more in to the up close and personal fighting styles.
enhancement is really fun to level, so i'd try that if you want to get a feel for the class.
as far as resto, shaman are very good healers. we have extremely strong group healing abilities when the raid is clumped together, as well as very good tank healing tools. GHW is one of the biggest single target heals in the game; 250k crits are not uncommon.
nowadays we also have plenty of strong healing cooldowns to utilize as well. our biggest weakness is healing a raid or group that's spread out. definitely can't keep up with a druid or monk in those cases. luckily, there's not too many fights like that this tier.
Cool, thanks for the thoughts - I think I will definitely try out enhancement/resto for awhile when I get a chance (hopefully soon, almost have the carrot for 5.1 content, but then again, 5.2 should be here soon...) :)
I played a hunter through BC (70) and raided with him and all the fun stuff. But I got bored of being in the back and shooting an arrow. I re-rolled Enh Shaman, and since then I have never touched my hunter..
Enhancement is my favorite, so many things going on having to pay attention to stacks on Searing and Maelstrom, and having that x variable of being up and close to target and watching out for things. I dual specced Resto and that is also fun! chain heal, totems, healing in general is fun, Ive always loved it. But yeah Enh/Resto is great, I love it!
