blizzard standard saffie, like shaman totems
at least they know what to nerf ( cause everyone tells them? ), they just don't know how LOL
What would you have suggested? It did seem a bit silly that it did not really matter to silence and try to kill a Shaman of their partner, when they could just drop SLT, Healing Tide or Grounding. Not to mention, fearing one and then silencing the Shaman should reward you with the fear.
Shamans are still the best healer by far, especially considering they have the largest heals of any class, doing quite a lot of overhealing. If it was up to me, Chain heal and Healing Rain should be buffed slightly, in order to reduce their Mastery benefit (Would make sure PvE did not get nerfed), so they would be on par with others.
Nobody else can do anything while silenced, why should Shamans be the exception? If you feel they are too squishy, I do ask you to check ladders, even when they are playing without a Shadow Priest. Paladins go 100-0 vs. any Stun/Mage team, Disc priest... Nevermind. Rdruid would die to any 2 people training them if they didn't have Displacer Beast (another problem that could be reworked and solved, to make it more even for all parts). Shamans have ES and Natures Guardian. Perhaps a minor dmg reduction CD when stunned would fit, but silenced, thats how it is for everyone.
On topic: Frost bomb can still do its full damage after 6 seconds? You just have to set it up now. If your know the enemy healer is CC'ed or just dispelled, what is the problem?
