What's an Enhancement shaman to do?

Post by adenrei » Tue Feb 24, 2009 11:35 am

Looking over mmo today, ive discovered many...dare i say "intriguing"...things about blizzard and enhancement shamans. This may be a pure Pvp talent, but we are now getting a new talent called "Frozen Power".
Its ability is "Increases the damage done by your Frostbrand Weapon if it is enchanted on your main-hand weapon by 10/20%, and your Frost Shock has a 50/100% chance to root the target in Ice for 5 sec. when used on targets at or further than 15 yards from you.

Upon further reading i've found a debate entitled "Windfury vs. Flametongue"

The designers are very aware of the WF vs. FT discussion. We are still
talking about the issue and exploring different ways we can shift numbers back and forth. This is something I very much want to discuss with my team some more and it would be irresponsible for me to comment on our direction or solutions until that time.

Currently on EJ, the best MH for dps is a caster mace with Flametongue.

Blizz needs to get their shit together and give enhancement shamans a definitive answer on best weaps, best enchants, and better PvP capabilities.

Just a rant, a QQ if you will, but still just curious to see if anyone has any thing intelligent to add to this post.

just make the mechanics so they use the same weapons as rogues. game over.

make having a faster weapon useful. in tbc, shaman and warriors shared weapons. now shaman have nobody to share weapons with.

honestly, blizz needs to get some axes for shaman. (shaman can use axes right?)

man.. this xpac is all about qqing for shaman... jeez... you and bru and whiney :p :)

There is more to life than pew pew you know, like staying out of the fire so you can live to pew pew another day

Does weapon dmg not matter to an enhancement shaman?

I also think Frozen Power is supposed to be a PVP talent. Snare your targets if they're trying to kite you. Should help out against casters.

Just like the shitacular new talent they gave elemental shaman.
