Rockbiter as a resource generator for enhancement... looks interesting.
Your intro: "In this blog on Death Knights in Legion..."
better be a battle shout for when u sunder =)
Ahhh yes, the annual nerf to chain heal
Ohh god i can't find out if i want to play my main mage or roll my alt shaman for legion after seeing this! Im not quite so sure about how i feel the way enhancement is going with rockbiter, but the new mastery seems cool. I wonder how multistrikes and the new (old ahem) mastery for elemental is going to work together. Will it be cool, or holy moly everyone is going to play elemental cool.On a side note, when are you covering the new Death Knight Shaman? Will it be like a not so tanky Wraith king :D?
So much spell copying from Heroes of the Storm I love it :D
Im stoked on these changes. I was kinda hoping for more changes honestly. I would like to see enhancement shamans..... well..... enhance things. Totems, buffs, etc.
I really don't see how this is even remotely an improvement for enhancement. Really disappointed in this changes.
Well, looks like enhancement finally have a filler with rockbitter instead of just spamming lightning bolt and wait for stormstrike to come out of cd. As for elemental, I liked that they removed the shocks's cds, so we won't need to choose which shock missing drains more of our dps.
Like what I've read so far ... particularly exited by the prospect of being able to summon elementals without a totem AND targeted totemic placement. Nice!
I like what I'm hearing for the changes to Elemental. I do find it odd that Resto will remain a mana-based class, or maybe it's not so odd given Blizzard's hesitation, or inability, to develop a healing class without mana for a resource.
More classes that I have no clue about. Can't wait till Warrior and Monk, I'm freaking out heeeeere.
Both Rockbiter & Flametongue are 10 yd range.. That's really bad, enhance must have at least one ability with a good range - like Unleash in good old times. Without having blinks/leaps and so on enhance is very slow at tapping rares, for example, when you need a quick react to throw an instant range spell.Though I really love most of the other changes, especially totems & elems turned into guardians. Shamans have been dreaming about it for so long :)
so Maelstrom stack to 100?
So... Elemental still suffers from its same issues of being immobile, Enhance is basically a fury warrior now,and resto got nothing. Awesome.
where the healing yourself stand with no mana? it will be like been a pally with only holy word to heal you and having other "spells" the can eat it your holy power in one go...
I still feel like Enhancement isn't in a particularly great spot, but I'm happy to see the changes to elemental minions and totems. The new Maelstrom resource interests me, although I wonder if it will feel too much like a Warrior. Nonetheless, nice job, Blizz.
