Check to make sure you are running pet sac, I'm pretty sure it now gives +20% damage to chaos bolt instead of the dot.

While I have nothing but respect for that guy's efforts to get Blizzard to fix their retarded game, it's silly to expect any results, or be surprised when there are none.  I'm sure people have been whining at them from the start of beta testing through this very minute, healing in general in this expansion is some of the dumbest shit I've ever seen, and should be painfully obvious to everyone.  

However, I've been present for 3 out of the 5 expansion releases in this game, and all 3 times, there were immense, game-breaking issues in pvp that were reported to blizzard non-stop during testing and after release.  And all 3 times, those game-breaking issues went live with absolutely no changes whatsoever, and wrecked the game for some period of 3-12 months thereafter until being fixed.  

It is fairly mindblowing how they can manage to be so slow and so bad at addressing COMPLETELY gamebreaking issues, especially when those issues are being literally screamed into their faces by masses of players, and yet at this point it really should not come as any surprise that this is the state of things.

I've been a part, whether casually or more competitively, with all 5 expansions and I have to agree with you.  The only expansion that showed any real promise with responsiveness was TBC.  At the introduction:  resil didn't affect dot damage and resil lowered crit chance only, completely murdering crit classes like hunters.  They also allowed gear swaps within arenas, giving healers the ability to stack shadow resist gear from BT.  These were definitely problems, however I feel like they were addressed far faster than imbalance problems today and in MOP.

This is a repost from the wow forums, so yea, ignore some of it.. but regardless here it is:

'So i just farmed full 675 Pvp gear (best in slot for now) as i was hoping gear was the issue not class..... i was wrong.

Ele is not in a playable state, the class honestly feels like its in alpha / beta.

The mastery is horribly designed, random procs for 6 seconds after hitting a target with one of your abilities? Who on earth thought that would be a good idea? Its dull, boring and worst of all; Rng.

But that isn't the problem, the problem is the lack of damage. Multistrike is our best stat, but in pvp multi strike is capped at hitting once (causing lightning shield to take alot longer to stack up), not how it does in pve where it has a chance to hit twice, so our main stat is nerfed. Another thing that ruins our damage is the crit change to pvp, Abilities in pvp crit for 150% not 250% like they used to (Shamanism during mop caused us to crit for 250% damage, instead of 200%), so this is a 100% less crit damage, which nerfs our iconic damage source ; lava burst...

I don't understand how blizzard couldn't see these problems on beta, however its too late now, all we can do is pray they change something...

Your reasoning for why ele shamans have no way to get mana back was, 'ele shamans damage abilities cost near to no mana', what about purging? healing? or even getting any mana back!? Once we oom, we lose.... we have no mechanic to get mana back which is ridiculous.

My suggestions:

Make lightning shield stack up from being hit like it used to back in cata and early mop.

Buff lava burst damage by making it crit for 250% or just buffing the baseline damage

Increase the range on wind shear to 30 yards (it got nerfed from 30-25 in wod)

Cause rolling thunder to grand 2% mana like it used to in cata and mop, at least giving us some way to get mana back.

That's some ideas off of the top of my head, there are other issues like ele blast and our mastery but those  aren't quite as urgent but still need addressing.

Tell me what you think!'

Had to highlight obvious MOP hero viewpoints.  Ele shammys were always viable, and quite necessary for 5s comps in tbc.  In wotlk/cata they played more of a support role, focusing on lockdowns/purging and timely totems.  MOP introduced this slot machine shit fest that you all got accustomed to.

2s = 3s in balance during the time it yielded titles, PERIOD. Judging from that statement, you obviously didn't play back in the day.

Current 2s ? Yeah fuck that. 2s bracket while they were balancing for it ? Absolutely same shit as 3s, same amount of broken comps and countercomps.

This is false.  Nothing has ever been more imbalanced than dk/pal s5.  We had websites tracking representation and it was over 35% of glad spots.  Many other classes could not compete against that comp unless they ran 2xdps and tried to gib the dk.  I got 2.2k as lock/mage that season by some miracle of god.

I challenge you to show me any representation that was worse than dk/pal 2s in s5.

Racist? How so? People immigrating from countries with lower average IQ's is going to drop the average IQ of the countries they move to?
Is it Racist when i say Israel would be higher because of their immigrants?

Statistics aren't racist..

It is racist to assume an outcome to a statistic prior to putting together any data/evidence.

If I had to take a guess I would say that US IQ rate has gone up due to immigrants.
