Buff shaman please
Hmm...... Is Blizz preparing a large class change patch in next week or so? They are addressing the issues with many classes, but did not change much in recent datamining.
If only Feral Spirits was the only thing that is weak right now in Shadowlands beta.
A way to fix that talent row and semi buff the spec would be to make elemental spirits and ascendance baseline and they would then be able to put some new interesting talents in
glad to here ytou acknowledge it but what about the 3-4 second gaps in enhancements rotation and never mind enhance what about WW
Literally Just make ascendance baseline for enhancement and elemental, then work around that. Really not that hard. Giving both specs a decent baseline cool down that you can change/alter in a way that helps it mechanically for the spec and the option to bring in some new interesting talents in the 100 spot where ascendance would be.While you are at it, dispense with the useless GCD shaman shields (besides water shield) and make them into a minor cooldown instead. Lightning Shield - Should be a popable cooldown like thorns where for the duration of say 8 seconds, attackers have the chance to be stunned. easy fix and fun defensive to deter players tunneling in PVP. keep the damage it does on attack and maelstrom generation cause its basically useless in PVE situations anyway.Earth Shield - 1 Minute popable cooldown where for 10 seconds damage reduced by 20% (hell even 10%) for the target, and during this time attacks made to the target heal the target. could also include the bonus healing done to that it already has (5%). Water Shield - Keep the passive mana how it is, this is fine.Simple fixes that help every spec in most of the endgame content available.
Enhance still needs help. theres so much white hitting and waiting for things to come off cd, its nothing like they are trying to do to make it feel like vanilla. They need something, icestrike should be baseline if its going to do that low of damage and doesnt feel exciting. Enhance on BETA feels like ret paladin but without the wings and more waiting for buttons to push. how to fix enhance, make any one of the talents baseline on row 25, put something in its place to make lava lash feel useful to push or exciting, dogs should be baseline also, much like the UH DK ya'll did, adjust the seconds on lava lash because I dont think haste will help unless outrageous amounts OR since enhance is evolved around SS...
i always say this for years , big weakness of enhance or shamans are Defensive , anyway some spell like FS are weak on single and aoe , they need to do some extra effect when combo with other spells like with ascendance can give you more fire damage or cd reductions, when using some frost spell they gave you more frost damage or something like this ... and make it more funny ,or remove GCD on feral maybe ? or you can change it like passive feral drop on damage we deal.
any way i remember last 2 expansion same forum for shaman near the expansion and nothing change :D
Elemental Spirits needs to interact with Spirit Wolf talent with new tooltip on Spirit Wolf (while Feral Spirit active.) that add another defansive cd for enha and solve a lot survivability problems and we have to choose or know which buff we are going to get before we use Feral Spirit while we have Elemental Spirits.
