"1 Tunnel Trogg since it also omits Feral Spirit from the build", in the overview there are 2 troggs.

This is an oversight, thanks for pointing it out! We'll get it fixed ASAP.

This deck is pretty good atm rank 4 with this. But how about cutting  Flamewreathed Faceless  for one more Thunder Buff Valiant.  I don't see much use for 7-7 cause there is so much aggro in the ladder. And when I am playing against control decks like warrior they have usually removal for it. Against warrior Thunder Buff Valiant is super good.

Thunder Bluff Valiant is even worse against aggro as you play it on turn 6 or 8 and you need to roll a totem each turn if you want to get value from it. Yes, it might be better against warrior's Execute, but it's worse against midrange decks, such as midrange hunter or against druids. Swap only if you face a lot of warriors.

No doomhammer? I would have assumed that was the main purpose of rockbiter weapon.

Rockbiter's main purpose is actually for trades. It can turn a horrible situation into a very good trade or something to save a valuable minion.

This is especially true in a deck of totem based minions.

For anyone interested, I've seen a retro-innovation in form of Unbound Elemental rise to popularity, in place of Feral Spirit and 1 Mana Tide Totem. This is a solid 3-drop that can handle a lot of heavy-lifting. Don't pass up on the opportunity to give it a spin, because it's actually pretty good.

Seems like a good deck to try out but it'll take time to build because you need the One Night card.

Any suggestions what to swap for Bloodmage Thalnos? I don't have the needed dust atm and I didn't have much luck with opening packs.. Was thinking of Doomhammer, but I don't think it's that worth it.

You want a turn 2 option to activate turn 1 Spirit ClawsKobold Geomancer is an alright turn 2 spell power minion, so I recommend trying him out.

Me being fairly new to this game: I've read the stuff (see the quote below) part many times, but I just don't understand what it means. I need an explanation on this one because apparently I'm too stupid to understand.

So, the article reads:

 

Quote

 

3.3. Card Swaps

The tech cards in this deck should be closely evaluated in order to react to the meta you are facing. Lightning Storm can be cut or made a double copy, Hex can be cut down to a single copy as well. You will need to react to the matchups you are facing and decide which of the removal options are functioning well for you.

 

For some reason I simply do not understand this.

1) What are tech cards?
2) It reads: "Lightning Storm can be cut or made a double copy".
What does this mean? I already have two hex and two Lightning Storm cards in my deck!?

I'm totally confused here, please can someone explain this to me, please!

Tech cards are cards that are good only in against one type of decks, such as Lightning Storm against aggro or Acidic Swamp Ooze against weapon classes.

This is an outdated part of the guide and we apologize for that. You still can (but probably should not) cut one HexLightning Storm or one of each and replace them with different tech cards, such as the aforementioned Acidic Swamp Ooze if you encounter a lot of weapons.

It has 2 x Tunnel Trogg and 2 x Feral Spirit...

This is just an oversight after updating the list. Thanks for pointing it out!

      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

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
