Are shamans ment to be way over everyone else? (resto)

Quite funny when you face a shaman, they don't oom, seem to heal 1%-100% in 1 GCD and have alot of utility. In patch they're gettin even more buffs, wich will clearly place them high above all other healers. Intended or not? :s

You must bow down to the Shaman overlords.


Even as I must bow down to the warriors.

I'm not really sure what Blizzard are thinking. They nerfed our offensive utilities hard through Purge, but now keeps continuously buffing our healing capabilities. It feels retarded to randomly crit heal my partners for 60k with a NS+GHW.

Who cares if I get flamed, I don't even like playing on my shaman. As there seem to be 1 key to rule them all in alot of scenarios. Cleansing waters. It really has to go :S

Shamans are a joke vs spellcasters, melee fucks them up :)Its a reason why MLS and Shatterplay is way worse than MLD and Shattreeplay, shamans are way worse healers vs melee cleaves than druids and shamans are way better healers vs spellcleaves. Also shamans actually have to cast to heal, which makes them vulnerable to interrupters. Im not trying to deffend shamans or anything, cuz really vs spellcasters they are a joke. But currently on my BG there is nothing but melee cleaves queing, and when I played shatterplay I would have played a druid instead if I had one :)
Note: my main is a warlock ;)

Hate the fact that they hardly need to cast and the majority of them just run around doing nothing whole game.

On the other hand it's funny when 90% of them are so bad at interrupting spell casts even tho that's their only occupation besides spamming instant heals and earth shield.

Shamans are good against casters, ye, and that has been their little niche ever since. However, if you are playing with basically any melee class, and can't oom the opposing resto shaman, then your team is doing something majorly wrong.

That is not really true no, maybe vs Cleaves yes. But I can give you alot of examples where shamans don't possibly nearly oom vs melee/caster/healer.

While I do agree Shaman healing is retarded, we can go oom if the opposing team actually cares enough to make sure I don't drink. If you can't oom a Shaman with a melee, you're doing something horribly wrong.

Might work vs shamans who bought their s8 r1 as LSD, but no. Doesn't work vs competent teams as the shaman barely go below 50% before he tops himself in LoS.
