Four piece definitely needs to go but a non 4piece flameshock+lava burst really isnt that much higher and could potentially be lower than the amount of damage melee does in two globals (2 instants+white swing) with the new 258 weps. Considering lava burst is negated by dispel and ele shaman have no dispel protection or cover and its casted, all these weird LvB+dot suggestions/nerfs are really uncalled for.

People tend to complain about ele burst factoring Curse of Elements as part of our class. If anything should be changed CoE and similiar effects should either not work in pvp or only work for the caster and that would in effect be a 13% damage nerf to the supposedly high ele damage. (Most wizard cleave complaints are the destro/ele or destro/mage variety, I don't think I've ever heard one about Mage/ele). With 4 piece and CoE out of the picture does Lava Burst doing ~33% less damage not seem fine?

i was only pointing out how bad it becomes when it has 20% more damage from a set bonus, thats a lot of extra damage every 8 sec

people are making those suggestions because they think blizzard wont change the set bonus (pve lol)

But you have to remember, a shaman running 4 pc t9 is going to be extremely squishy.

Yes the damage is insane but if you look at it on the same level as warlocks, shamans are going to come out second best due to warlock CC, peels and overall survivability.

In the end I do think the set bonus is retarded but if it's there you might as well use it :D

I got critted for 8.7k lava burst on my 1k resi priest.

This was without the setbonus.
So... I'm looking at a 10k+ crit with the setbonus?

Wizard cleave is starting to get easier then melee cleaves.

id have to agree without set bonus unlikely

unless you were like in a improved kidney shot with CoE up facing a shaman gemmed spellpower with a platinum disk use trinket for the spellpower use with his totem up with a ret paladin in his group and he gets a top end crit.

That will never happen... melee cleaves are and have always been the easiest thing known to WoW pvp.... even easier than dual glaive HARP rogues in s2.
