Hi Sottle, do you recommend to get at least 1 Bloodlust into mid-shaman? As sometimes I am able to tempo and bring opponent to 10+hp but then get a board-wipe. As mid-shaman looking for tempo nicely and have few minions on board, how about add bloodlust just to serve as 1 finisher? If yes, which card you suggest to replace it with?

you should add the elemental destruction/hallazeal combo. I played a similar deck, and it worked well for me.

Tried it, found it too gimmicky and unnecessary. In a slower deck it might be ok, but this deck is quite fast and wants to have minions on the board so Ele Destruction is counter intuitive.

Not really midrange. Its more like evolve. With that said ive found more success running skull crack in all 4 of my shaman decks (aggro. Midrange. Evolve. Totem) Skull crack is a savage and with totem golem and value C'thun creatures running around in the format. 4 dmg is exactly what you need.

Tunnel Trogg is kind of core and one of the big reasons why Shaman is a successful class again, but Argent Squire is probably the best replacement.

I feel like this deck could use some more card draw. Maybe an acolyte or loot hoarder.

Hello,

 

Thanks for the deck, works great. 3 things. First, how agressive is this deck, should I go face unless my enemy would get a favorable if I dont trade or should I go face all the time like hunter use to or finnaly, should I trade when it's favorable for me and otherwise go face? Second question, would totemcarver be good in this deck? finally, I find that I have a hard time againt the deathrattle combo, anything to help? (should I just play way more agressiv against them)?

 

Thanks for the deck and answering

Just got Mistcaller from the pack. Is he viable in this deck? If so, what should I replace?

Nah, Mistcaller is not a particularly good card, such a huge initial Tempo loss.

Absolutely not required in my opinion, you curve out so effectively.

Not, not a particularly strong card right now. Stats are too weak and the healing is fairly unnecessary with only Shaman in the meta really dealing a lot of burst damage.

It's fast in comparison to older Midrange Shamans which was a lot of Totem pass turns. This deck curves out aggressively, but you're playing for value on the board.

Would sylvanas be good in this deck? and which minion should i replace with her ?

I play Sylvanas instead one Thing from Below. I find just another pile of raw stats unnecessary, when you already have Faceless. Also even if it gets cheaper, you still rather can't play it before turn 4 and past that point 5/5 isn't anything special. I mean, sure, it's nice when you can play 5/5 for 0 mana in late game, but I prefer something with actual impact on board. I also play play 1 Mana Tide, because it demands immediate answer and if it draws you 2-3 cards, you probably won already. This deck is hilariously strong when it has cards to play with.

I use mistcaller tho. its been working great. boosts all minions. its more the timing when to use him. you should always use him when you have a advantage on the board and think its apropiate.smile.png

That is why he isn't that good. When you have board advantage, you usually have less cards in hand, which means it takes longer to gain the value back. Additionally, if you don't have a strong board position, he is a dead card in your hand.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      Hi everyone

      I won't pretend to be a veteran or a very good player because I am not either one of them (I don't raid or push Mythic+). But I've played rpg/arpg for around 15 years now on PC and have 7 lvl 110s. So I am somewhat not idiot when it comes to playing a class. However with an Enh Shaman, I am feeling like one. This class feels paper thin to play and damage seems exactly meh. Let me explain a bit more. 

      I have a Frost DK, Sin Rogue, Havoc DH and a Ret Pally as melee. I felt confident while playing them that I can take on enemies and not die even if I pulled more than one. But when playing this Enh Shaman, I've died multiple times trying to do so. Not only that, it feels that a !@#$ty lvl 106 mob (same level as me) does more dmg per hit than I do. And mind you, this is not during dungeons but normal leveling. I've never felt this weak while playing any of my melee characters. I tried doing a Legion invasion to quickly level up and died basically half a dozen time doing every single invasion quest. I can't being to explain how frustrating that is.

      Not only this, but damage wise every skill seems just not upto the mark when compared to other classes. My resource generator (Rockbiter) is a hand cramp inducing skill and I have to spam it a lot to generate Maelstrom which my other spenders just chew through. I get Stormbringer proc but its very few and far between and doesn't seem very effective even when it does. Isn't it supposed to be a nuke skill ?

      I suppose this could be because of low points in my artifact and low level gear but I had the same situation on my other characters and it never felt bad like this is. I am losing my interest to play this class at all and no matter what rotation or build I try out, it is always the same result. I pull one enemy and then after killing it I spend my entire resource just to heal up.

      Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong and if it gets better at higher levels or if next patch improves our situation.

      Thanks and have a nice day y'all

      I know shamans are kinda messed up right now, what else is new.
      But I'm up to 900 and my already underwhelming DPS has seen no significant increase. I'm pretty sure it's tied to my low haste rating, but I'd like to make sure and see if it's just that or something else I can work to change.

      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/tichondrius/nimbonya
       
      I'll Sim around 760k, This week I got 630k on Krosus, going up to 900k on Skorp and Tich.
      I feel like this is all far too low, one of our top dps is a warlock at i897 and often easily goes 900k and up just on single target.
      I could really use some help figuring out what I've done wrong and what I could improve.

      My usual priority rotation works as follows:
      >Maintain Landslide/Flametongue/Hailstorm
      >Doom winds when off CD and Stormbringer proc'd.
      >Stormstrike when proc'd
      >LavaLash when proc'd
      >Stormstrike when off CD
      >Lavalash when 90+ Maelstrom
      >Rockbiter when -90 Maelstrom
      Feral Spirit-Crash Lightning combo and Doom Winds I'll sometimes delay if there's an add/burn phase, and I have a habit of refreshing Flametongue and Hailstorm on CD if I don't have any procs. I'll also occasionally mismanage Maelstrom and need to do 2-3 Rockbiters to get back up to speed.

      My opener consists of: Prolonged Power>Feral Spirit>Rockbiter>Crash Lightning>Flametongue>Frostbrand>Stormstrike
