#4024027 shaman goat

The main issue with SGX isn't the amount of instant CC it has, and it isn't the amount of damage it's able to put out. Multiple comps have more CC and more damage than SGX, but aren't nearly as strong.

The main issue with it is how difficult it is to control, and how little the classes have to do to avoid CC (compared to other comps). People just want simple answers as to why a comp is out of control, and usually those answers come out right as you die, that's when you're most annoyed. "I CANT EVEN FUCKING PLAY MY CHARACTER" or  "90K ICE LANCE WHAT A FUCKING JOKE." A lot of people don't really think of what goes on during the entire game, just towards the end when they're dead or about to die. From my experience it seems that most people (mainly casters of course) can't even think of the actual reason why SGX is so miserable to play against, but all of them know that they hate fighting it.


The shaman and the goat PASSIVELY (this is the worst part) make up for some of the biggest weaknesses of EVERY class, (excluding casters). The comp alone is the sole reason a lot of comps are no longer viable, and also the sole reason a lot of classes (mainly physical and healers) are viable.

- RET goat shaman (Ret easily controlled by casters / lacks CC)

- DK goat shaman (squishy / lack CC and mobility)

- FERAL goat shaman (Feral easily feared / very squishy outside of CDs / lacks CC)

- HOLY (Priest/Paladin) goat shaman (Priest and Paladin both easily controlled by casters)

- MONK (WW and MW) goat shaman (MW Monk easily controlled by non warlock/spriest casters, assuming they're undead.)
   (WW Monk unique playstyle / very squishy outside of CDs / lacks CC)

- HUNTER goat shaman (Hunter very squishy vs casters / easily feared)

Almost every spec above is NOT viable at a high level outside of SGX.

The hunter alone has enough CC to make up for any that his X lacks, and the shaman alone has enough ways to keep their DPS/Healer out of CC

Goat shaman (especially shaman) is also the bane of any wizard cleave, they are non-existent. The ONLY viable wizard cleaves are ones with shamans, and even those should get demolished by SGX.

The class simplifies and limits any comp its a part of, and any comp it plays against. There is only so much you can do... they lack depth.

Another one of the comps best qualities is how easy it is to maintain proper positioning in comparison to other comps. This mainly has to do with the shaman, and this is also my biggest issue with the class in general. Shamans are an extremely defensive class (If you ever play or watch any 3v3 game go to dampening, 99% of the time there will be at least 1 shaman in the arena), they don't really have any real CC, they are VERY disruptive, and they're the most difficult class to control. It's rare to catch a shaman out of position, because majority of the time there really is no reason to be. That's why I think it's much simpler to play any shaman comp than it is to play nearly ANY other comp in the game.

Being able to effectively use your healer CC offensively while maintaining proper positioning is a HUGE part of your teams success. Many healers and teams struggle with this.

You will not be competitive at a high level in arena without effective fears from your priest.

You will not be competitive at a high level in arena without effective clones from your druid.

You will not be competitive at a high level in arena without effective Hojs/fears/repents from your paladin.

You will not be competitive at a high level in arena without effective incaps/stuns/roots from your monk.

You WILL be competitive at a high level in arena without effective.... 45second CD hexes...... from your shaman.

Shamans do NOT CC, they PREVENT CC. They slow down the tempo of every arena they enter. That's also another reason you won't ever see a high rated shaman comp without some kind of cast reduction spell (Curse of enfeeblement / Goat / Mind numbing) on their team. They need to slow games down and simplify them as much as possible in order to win. That's also why they are so weak against melee cleaves, or just any melee in general. (there is no ability you can press to reverse bloodlust a melee class).

Not to mention they walk in arena with a PASSIVE damage and healing buff to everyone on their team. Grace of Air (3000 mastery)

I'm not sitting here saying it is unstoppable. I am saying that the amount of effort and coordination required to win games, in comparison to every other comp in the game, is much less as Shaman Goat, and I think every goat and shaman would agree that without each other, they wouldn't have nearly as much success in arenas.

Irubs agent here and this is what he has to say on the matter pending

"if you watch this vod Twitch/jahmilli go to 1:04:06 and put it in slow motion you will see the skillful things we do. Also listen to our skype call to hear benji ask me "hey man do you have stormbolt" thats the kinda set up thats needed to succeed, I'll have you know that in season 12 i was the highest triple warrior 3v3 team in the world i was also playing a 3s game once while pooks whispered me so theres that. I'm not gonna post here any more or respond to this thread cus no one here gets me. Also if you go to the food network and watch your dvr of last nights vod you'll see THE chef Bobby Flay directly say my name "I Rub these steaks together" thats no coincidence. I played with reckful once. I beat xaryu."

i don't understand why it is so hard to ban ppl on this forum, what are the mods doing exactly ? When i go on Teamliquid or on any other serious gaming website i don't see half the shit i see here. I know this game is dead, i know this forum/website is pmuch dead too but still, i mean some ppl are clearly being toxic and deserve to get banned no matter what. Do your job for christ sake.

as much as i hate larex and the rep he has given me everytime i see you post its just to bash someone else.

Kill yourself.

Look Abolished, let's put our differences aside for a minute, shall we?

I know you're fairly new here on AJ, and don't deny that because we both know you haven't really been posting until very recently.

Anyway, what I wanna say is that AJ isn't what it was back in WotLK or even Cata, it's now just a place where people go a whine about their shit. I get that you feel frustrated when reading what some of these tards have to say, I used to snap at every post I saw Zerlog make. It doesn't lead anywhere though, you simply have to look away!

This forum is dying rapidly anyway, I mean you're permabanned from here, don't you remember how they told you TWICE in my thread that you could never create another account here, yet I reported you 4 times when you posted in my thread and all they did was remove the post, you're still here and to be honest I don't mind.

I'm fairly sure mods will remove this post quite fast because they most likely have some sort of top notch alarm that just goes fuck as soon as someone says this forum is dying. You know what mods? It's true, now please bring the requirement needed for Junkie status back to 2.4k or Gladiator in the most previous arena season!

Over and out!
