So im thinking of rolling a ele shaman for next patch. But i read over their nerfs to echo of elements. Are we still going to be viable for high rated 2's + 3's?

Yes, ele will still be viable next patch.  The change just stops the chance of getting multiple echo procs in a row for stupid one shots (even though there will be huge rng burst still).  Ele won't be quite as strong due to base resil increase hurting burst comps, but ele will still be really good.  The nerf to echo really isn't a big deal, it just stops the turtle and hope for rng play style slightly.

echo isn't even the problem considering none of the high rated shamans even use it, so yes ele will still be broken

What you think about the change:

  • Elemental Shaman 2-piece PvP set bonus has been changed. It now allows Lightning Shield to be triggered once every 1.5 seconds instead of once every 3 seconds.

if lava surge dont proc we're gonna have to cast the pityful Lightning Bolt to dmg them! :(

I think all the changes were positive, we're still good without being RNG turrets that everyone complains about
