Have a contact within blizzard, basically claims they have far more important changes and class mechanics to address before Ele, same with boomkins. They know there are obvious weaknesses ( more with ele than boomkin) and they'll get round to it sometime this expansion. They didn't anticipate the amount of unbalance there would be and have to prioritize the t1 classes first due to popularity.

From a business standpoint, this makes sense, from a gaming and balancing perspective it makes none.

They could massively benefit from reading the detailed unbiased posting that goes on here which poses potential class changes and balancing....they don't.

Ele sucks but who am I kidding, I don't really wanna see it viable again because I know exactly how it's going to turn out. This is what happens to casters with only 1 dot they do massive direct to make up for it.

edit: but expect it to likely be addressed in the next Q&A. There was so many (at least 25 posts) lvb facerollers in that thread making topics about it. Lots of hunters too...

already made mention of LB being instant would turn ELE into a VERY viable spec to play.

and for fire elemental to be a full-time pet, allowing us to pulse fire novas from it which will stun everyone in 50 yards range for 5 seconds. B)

Did any of you elementals try speccing into resto instead of getting insta ghost wolf?

I know Ghost wolf is an extremly good talent, and I have never played elemental properly myself.

But does missing out on ghost wolf really hurt elemental that much?


Say you spec into resto and you go play with a holy paladin and a hunter who can give double freedom?

I had written a fairly lengthy post on the resto hybrid for elemental at cata's launch. It wasnt that bad, but the mana was shit, surv was still shit, and the damage was worse. Now, with resto heals being further distinguished by ele heals by the massive buff to resto's passive healing, it gets less and less viable

and still no love for spirit as ele. I know some disagree, but I maintain that as long as spirit provides no bonuses other than hit, at the cost of three talent points we can ill afford, ele itemization will be at best clunky, and at worst, a train wreck

Always funny to read elemental changes in s9 ... again had a good laugh today * Fire Nova now has a 100 yards range, up from 40 yards.

blizzard truly knows what we need
