Just to post in the new forum....

Do you also find the shaman class overpowered?
It seems Tre has hitpoints like a warrior, hits hard like a warrior, interrupts spell casters, prevent rogues from hiding, heals, nukes etc. and can even do the wolfie trick and run off if needed...wth? Rolling Eyes Question

Also, I seem to recall from my EU server that every class has one specific class that it will beat easily and one other class, that it will hardly beat?
What class will be my nemesis? I can only think of pallies but I have only had a few one to one envounters so im not sure....

No flaming or bragging intended, Im really curious Wink

unfortunately, in the end game point of view, SM are healbots that don't heal good.

On the PVP side, i am not a professional but i know that SM own anything because they are versatile.

I also know that Shadow priest fear only one class: shamies Smile

endgame POV: buffbot (totems), healbot (soso), and wiperezzer (always a shammy to pop to rez the first priest).
i am sure in TBC we may see more shammy action in instances / endgame, due to raid being smaller, and maybe a shammy doing more than buff/heal, depending on spec. anyways, thats what blizz is hoping for. its a versatile class. it can do good of everything, but not as good as specialized classes.
Casting? sure you can, but your mana pool is more limited and you drain it more easily if you go offensive.

As far as PVP goes, a shammy is a REAL pain for meh being mage. in open pvp i might get them IF i am lucky, in duels, they are tough. only way is sheep, burst, burst, interrupt/silence his heal, root, burst.
if he didn't die by then, my interrupt / silence is over and i am mashed potatoe.
On the other hand, Hunters eat you alive, even with your high armor class. a Beastmaster specced hunter should go through you without any problem, and i think a Marksman/Survival spec should get you fairly easy.

and (i dont know, havent played a lock yet) a lock should get you as well, from what i can think of pvp abilities. but then again... a lock ownz all i can think of, except someone who "surprises" the lock and bursts out insane DMG or keeps the lock controlled (feared / silenced)

alltogether, i would say a shammy is a very dangerous adversary in pvp, and hopefully more to be seen in pve.

the very important thing to remeber:

Always try to be in a group with rogues:
use totems like: windfurry, agi buff, str buff and OT reduction.

Then always concentrate all your heals on rogues (preferably sword wielding rogues).

The you should be fine on PVE Smile

I'm playin' a 52 Shammy.. he's tough.. but not that tough. My PVP is about 50 these days. Some of that is due to my gear.. some due to my ability.

I don't think they're overpowered at all.. sheep and fear usually keep me at bay pretty easy.. and a rogue that hits me first will usually own..

Anyway.. we'll see as I get more PVP oriented in the last of my levels.

...while you are "running away"...
MUAHAHAHROLFMAO.....

good one.
Anyways. I don't know Shammies that much, but M being mage, i can tell you that most good shamans will interrupt my sheep and then rape me. Like i said above, if i don't get off sheep, i am usually his pleasurepuppy for the next 10 seconds or so.

If the shaman decides to block (ie. stun) your sheep spell, then that school of magic is blocked for 2-3 seconds. Will it not be better to block one of the other schools, ex. frost or fire where the high dmg spells are?

(Im not expert on mages, but sheep is magic based, I think)

Just a thought....
