Don’t you love Enhancement Shaman now? The past weeks before Cataclysm were pretty much a downer for us. Very low dps – compared to other classes – and lots of breaks ibetween abilities. I saw a good bunch of players abandon the class, despite pinting out that Unleash Elements would give us a lot more of the TBC glory back.
At least for now I totally enjoy Enhancement Shaman, can’t really say with certainy if we aren’t a bit overpowered, but looking at dps in normal and especially heroic instances we seem to have arrived in the upper parts of damage meters.
Right now we can play out our abilities as hybrid better than ever, being able to sacrifice some dps to help heal a player or even place an aoe heal in tricky phases seems to be a big plus. We can cc, interrupt, place that winning heal, use our cd in heavy damage phases, give proper heroism (honestly did you meet a mage yet that did not cast heroism at the worst possible occasions?) and do not totally suck on meters!
This patch made me a happy goat so far! The only thing I feel sorry about are the players that abandonded the class a tiny bit too early.
