i think shamans are fine personally
Why can't you just post that last part, without adding that sarcastic comment? Don't bother posting then. Its something to press for while we are stunned, its a shitter version of pain sup on a long cooldown only for us.
How does that comp work? Does it put out so much pressure that teams like ret/dk and tsg can't zerg them down before being put on the defensive?
Pretty much, but you can still zerg down the shaman. If the map is big I feel like the WLS has more of a chance to win since shaman can live abusing creating space.
Now this is probably a bit over the top, but giving us Shamanistic rage will honestly make the class ok. It will fix all our problems. This might be a problem though for the future, cause it seems mages are getting more powerful and we are naturally doing very well vs. mages.
The other option I was thinking of is giving Unleash not only a sprint for 4 seconds, but also a freedom. With combat rogues being nerfed, I think that will give us a great sustain since our weakness is being trained while we can't kite shit even in ghost wolf. That would help us a lot since we will be able to get earthgrab totem.
And the third option which I think would be great on its own, cause it will make our level 100 talent useful OR even paired with the second option is...making cloudburst give us a buff that makes our hots undispellable for like 6 seconds.
I really like your input. I personally love the new unleash because it makes our kiting somewhat potent when paired with ghost wolf & wind walk totem. I feel like unleash giving us a personal freedom would be awesome, since then we could use earthgrab, or decide giving the whole team freedom. (I love earthgrab).
I feel like cloudburst should also give a small hot when it explodes or something among your lines since this spell is just a filler between healing streams as of now.
