Community Voices Frustration Over Lack of Shaman Changes

Recommended Posts

The lack of changes for Shamans in the War Within expansion is starting to become a meme.

Although Shamans have been hoping for some class updates, none have been made yet.

Our guide writer Petko notes that playing an Elemental Shaman in Mythic+ feels really bad right now.

Wordup has even started a feedback thread for Enhancement, but there haven't been any significant changes to the spec.

Blizzard mentioned that they're mostly done with major reworks and are now focusing on tuning. Many frustrated Shaman players took to Reddit to talk about the lack of changes for their favorite class, and even, started to create memes!

PKCarwash says there's been literally 1 change for Shamans during the whole test cycle.

Every single shaman change for the alpha, beta, and prepatch PTR ranked from best to worst.

We came across some great memes, though a few have been deleted. Here’s what's still available:

Man WoW players just cry and cry and cry it's amazing lol.

It's actually amazing.

To be fair, shaman is one of the weakest classes right now both in terms of offensive and defensive. I think Resto is the only spec that people even bother with and enhancement is brought solely to make DKs, paladins, and warriors better with their leggo axe. I haven't seen an ele shaman since season 2.

IDK I been playin Ele for the last 4 weeks in remix and there's nothing wrong with it. People just get hyper-focused and weird out over this stuff. They build 90% of these issues in their heads.

That's remix though, I haven't played much of it but from what I've heard unless you're soloing mythic raids you're not likely to have any issues.

Literally one change to Shamans in testing.
Somehow Blizzard thinks that the hero specs they made for Shaman were perfect out the box.
Yet Totemic feels terrible for Enh and there are many NYI hero talents.

Lastly this isnt the first time Shamans were left til last and then devs say "its too late to do anything, and we aint reworking nothing" and all that happens is the shamans are left broken and then they slap a huge buff to a key ability to compensate for the shitty rotation.

Part of me wonders, and another part hopes, if there's going to be a mid patch rework like what rogues got in 10.1.5. I'd love for them to take what they've done to shaman in season of discovery and put it in retail, tank shaman would be awesome.

that's total nonsense.
there is only one mythical raid and that is Soo. and you can only do it solo with a lot of skill, which takes hours.

Remix is ez yes, but only solo for normal or HC Raid.

Like I said, I haven't played much of it given I'm currently on a break from the game until prepatch so I don't know a whole lot of how remix works and only know what I've heard, or more accurately read, what others have said about it.

      This is your last chance to earn some of the Season 4 rewards before they are permanently removed from the game next Tuesday! Check out our list of things to do before the War Within pre-patch hits to learn more!
      What's Going Away with the War Within Pre-Patch?
      Dragonflight Season 4 will end before maintenance in each region next, making many rewards unobtainable.
      Mythic+
      Infinite Armoredon, the Season 4 KSM mount, is going away.
      Additionally, dungeon teleports will be removed. You can still get them by completing a specific dungeon on Keystone +10 or higher. The Draconic Hero: Dragonflight Season 4 title will be removed. PvP
      Draconic Gladiator's Drake will become unobtainable.
      Draconic Legend: Dragonflight Season 4 and the Draconic Legend title can no longer be earned. Draconic Gladiator: Dragonflight Season 4 and the Draconic Gladiator title is going away. Legend: Dragonflight Season 4 is going away, so you won't be able to get the Legend title and Draconic Legend's Pennant. Draconic Gladiator's Prestigious Cloak will be removed. The Season 4 Weapon Illusion will be removed from the game. Season 4 PvP Elite Weapon and Armor Sets are going away. You can buy them with Mark of Honor from Glamora in  Valdrakken. You can buy Orboreal Distinguishment for 2,000 Honor from Seltherex which contains 5 marks. Our friends at MMO-Champion have a nice write-up here on how to get them all ahead of the pre-patch.
      Raids
      The Ahead of the Curve: Fyrakk the Blazing mount Renewed Proto-Drake: Embodiment of Shadowflame has continued to drop throughout Season 4 it will be removed when Season 4 ends, so you should kill Fyrakk on Heroic difficulty as soon as possible to get it.
      ???
      I'm not really sure what's going to happen with Jigglesworth, Sr., the Slime Cat mount, that you can currently buy for 3 bullions, after the pre-patch hits. It all depends on whether Blizzard will keep or remove the bullion system after Season 4 ends, but I imagine it could still be available in the pre-patch.

      Blizzard released a hotfix for Hunter's Trap Launcher in Season of Discovery.
      (Source)
      We’ve just applied a hotfix to address Hunter mobility.
      Trap Launcher will no longer augment Frost Trap. A Trap Launcher version of Frost Trap has only existed in versions of WoW in which mobility and freedom effects were more plentiful. Without them, the safety and agency a 9-15 second ranged Frost Trap grants Hunters is simply too much. We’re making it so that Hunters either need to put themselves at risk in order to place a Frost Trap or have someone engage on them to trigger it.
      Please note: if you currently have the Rune equipped, you must unequip and reequip it, zone, or relog before you can use Frost Trap again.

      Blizzard is reducing the damage modifier of Fortified from 30% to 20% in this week's beta build to compensate for the recent tank nerfs.
      At the same time, the devs will be closely monitoring dungeon and raid testing to see how the tank changes pan out.
      (Source)
      In this week’s beta update, we will be reducing the damage modifier of Fortified from 30% to 20%. Our goal is to reduce the overall damage to the group to offset the fact that tanks will likely need a bit more external healing. Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and we will be keeping a close eye on dungeon and raid testing and will further adjust individual abilities as needed.
