That resto set is OP, sitting on a 60 % critical strike with chain heal kewk.
Wow, that's amazing. Resto shamans get big bonuses for that spell they're never supposed to cast.
So, if nothing changes with Rshams as they are now, which i'm guessing will be the case, they will be the most broken spec in the game just pumping out massive DPS and HPS in M+ and being the go to healer for raids too with a shorter SLT. They already stack crit but an extra 30% crit chance on CH? Why not use tier sets to buff the undervalued healers like Hpriest and Rdruid?
I fu*** love playing Fire Elemental!
That 4-piece bonus, though. Even if only one of the jumps crits, that's 4 seconds knocked off REGULARLY.
OK the Elemental Bonus has me all aquiver with anticipation. The synergy there with the NightFae/Venthyr lego and the Skybreaker's? I forsee almost permanent elementals. The resto one though makes me cringe so hard. Yeah Chain heals are great occasionally but they're not -really- designed for long term casting and playing .
Wolves go brr
Unless chain heal gets a buff like it costs less mana to cast then these tier bonuses are worthless to rsham.
Why are people hyped for the Ele shaman one? It looks almost useless. * Fire ele does no damage* Storm ele you hardly want to lava burst at all* You've already got almost too many lava bursts with the lego you run in single target* Lava burst damage isn't that great to begin with* Lava burst is strictly single target of course
ok so who finally taught blizzard how to make shaman tier sets? these are all at worst, good on paper, and at best some huge changes that can be made to make us versatile in our specs with legendaries.
Ok. For my purposes all these look pretty good. Shamans got decent designs compared to many others I've seen, which are either busted (so fun) or boring, or Both!
While Storm Elemental isn't really being used at the moment, I would hope that they would have the bonuses adjust if you do have storm elemental to be focused around LB/CL & Stormkeeper. Storm elemental doesn't have the innate synergy that fire elemental does with FS/Lava Burst, so it seems odd to further push away Storm elemental's intended synergy.Also, the resto set bonus seems incredibly underwhelming. Chain Heal is hardly used anymore, due to a variety of issues with healing these days. This will not suddenly make Chain Heal used more than it currently is. Perhaps this set bonus would be ok if you decided to use Jonat's or Tidal Totem? Not sure though, because I foresee the same issue with Jonat's as I do High Tide, i.e. wasted time/procs.Overall, good to see these so early on so we can put in some feedback and get some iteration on them. Small props to the devs for having these available to datamine so early on.
Enhancement one feels kinda lame? Feral spirits dont do anything so getting an extra one once every 6 or 7 casts of lightning bolt doesnt exactly blow my shaman kilt up.The the extra stormbringer procs on feral spirits is nice but again its not really that exciting.
