it's so funny, in the shamy section eles are crying because they get stomped by ever meelcleave
in the druid section every druid is crying because they say they can't keep their mates up against a meelecleave
and now you want to sy me when ele and druid play together everything is np?
Exactly, that's how class synergy works.
Let me give an example from a simpler time in wow, TBC.
Warlocks were the strongest casters in tbc (seasons 1 - 4) but they did not have demonic portal. With zero ability to get range on melee, they could only sit there and tank. Warriors and rogues (esp seasons 3-4 b/c of glaives) completely chewed up warlocks and people were bitching about it all the time. If a lock paired with a priest or rshammy, melee would sit on the lock and ride them till the priest/shammy went OOM.
Warlocks paired with rdruids were a different story and dominated tbc.
Rdruid was the only healer that could consistently peel melee, giving warlocks range to use CoEx (out of charge range) and kite melee effectively. Rdruids also had the best poison cleanse to remove crippling poison and free up the warlock.
This was a case where warlocks alone could not handle melee, but with synergy and coordination with rdruids they could kite very effectively.
Kind of like how your team can cheeze melee on z-axis maps with kicks.
