Only thing I can enjoy now is 5s.

Tried 3s as resto and ele. There's literally no combo where'd you would choose a shaman over another class. (excluding holyplay)


I'm just tired of blizz balancing our regen around water shield. When you oom faster than the other healers, with limited offensive abilities for pressure or kills.

If they intend for us to water shield tank, at least allow us to use it without being an easy gib.


In most cases, a class is viable in 2s/3s or 3s/5s.

Priest: 2s/3s/5s
Warrior; 2s/3s/5s
Pally: 2s/3s/5s
DK: 2s/3s/5s
Druid: 2s/3s/5s
Rogue: 2s/3s/5s(Once people realize that euro is good again)
Mage: 3s/5s
Lock: 5s
Hunt: 5s
Shaman: 5s

The nerf to hunters is the obvious reason for their descent. As well as the afflic nerf and lower pop of locks causing lower numbers in 2s/3s. But, shamans got buffs last patch, if you consider new icons and sound a buff..

And, the sad thing too, without heroism..we would probably be overlooked in 5s too.


Game is dumb.

Have you tried rogue / lock / sham in 3's? I've heard that priest is better than sham if playing against RMP but sham is better otherwise.

The idea of doing 2s as a resto shaman makes me very, very depressed this season.

I very much hope that they make some changes to put us on par with the real healers and make us the ideal partner for at least 1 or 2 classes.

As it stands now, I have infinitely more fun doing arena on my welfare priest than on my shaman.

very little synergy with any of the dps classes makes playing a resto shaman very boring and unrewarding. At least in BC, we had a partner class (warrior) that needed us as much as we needed them, they had druids obviously but at least it was obvious with windfury totem that warriors and shamans were supposed to play together. Now that we offer nothing in the way of unique buffs, and we have poor efficiency, its hard to justify playing with a shaman over a druid/priest in a lower bracket

wait what.

i was top 15 2s with four different setups (resto/ret, resto/aff lock, ele/ret, ele/disc priest) and #1 in 3s with rogue/lock/resto.

we're completely fine this season, I dont think we're underpowered at all.

just because you are doing fine emcl doesn't really mean the class is fine, certainly people can climb a ladder if they play with a ret paladin in 2s, I won't comment on the elemental in 2s because i imagine most of the people posting on AJ are more interested in resto viability, but the fact that shamans are (basically) restricted to playing with a rogue or ret in 3s kinda says a lot about the class being entirely reliant on the strength of what you are playing with, its frustrating having to just throw in the towel because of the shortcomings of the class in certain match ups, and its frustrating for the people that you play with too

Play a priest for a day or a war for a day. Just anything with deadly gear and say that.

shaman synergy is godawful. It's amazing how little shamans can do when being trained.

Shaman buffs are easy to dispel even though their survivability while being trained centers around keeping earth shield. They have no version of pain suppression, no immunities to physical or magical, and their cc, "hex" is a cast time single target cc that's linked to the restoration tree. They have really weak instant cast healing since it's riptide/earth shield and that's it.
