Tell me this is a joke:



  • Earthquake's visuals are no longer visible for friendly players.
  • Shamanism now increases Lightning Bolt's damage by 70% (up from 36%).

  • Fire Nova now has a maximum of 7 novas that can be triggered if more than 7 targets are affected by Flame Shock.
  • Maelstrom Weapon should no longer incorrectly persist after the Shaman has switched to a different specialization.

  • Echo of the Elements effect should now be correctly consumed during Ascendance.
  • Elemental Blast's damage has been increased by 20%.

Yes, since you've nerfed Lava Burst so hard, its visual should match.

I TOLD YOU THEY SHOULD PRUNE EARTHQUAKE DUE TO VISUAL CLUTTER!!!! Here... I'll quote myself when they removed it:

I get why they removed Earthquake. Ground Clutter. They needed it gone because it required ground effects for other players.
Now, how on earth (pun intended!) is my tank supposed to keep mobs in my earthquake if they can't see it? For the first time, I'm actually wanted to start saying less than desirable words to the developers.

And that 70% lightning bolt? Apparently, that's what it was all through Beta! But somehow, for build 18443 it lowered it to 36%. It wasn't a buff, it was a correction to a mistake. That's so annoying. I'm just so confused.

Lightning Bolt (LB) is 88% of Spellpower. LB gets 70% more damage by being an Elemental Shaman.

Lava Burst (LvB) is 77% of Spellpower. Lava Burst will always deal a critical strike. If your Flame Shock is on the target, Lava Burst will deal 50% additional damage.

Say spell power is 100.
LB hits for 88*1.7=149.6. Crits hit for 374.
LvB hits for 77*2.5=192.5*1.5 if flame shock is on target = 288.75

Granted, we can't get our Crit high enough to ignore our Multistrike bonus, but man, doesn't it seem like our big damage nuke is kinda pathetic? Once we get our perks LvB can add to Fulmination, which is hitting hard probably because it's hitting 15 stacks eventually to be 20 stacks, but right now at level 90... LvB is a waste of time except for the instant casts or getting it down to 1 second per cast during Ascendance. That takes Elemental Mastery with a LMG proc, or Bloodlust. And only because yes, Taka, I'm a motherfucking Troll.

    Dear Kull,

    I, Shaylana, do humbly request that I may reserve a raid marker for the epicenter of my earthquake. This marker will be sacred to me, and no others may use such raid marker for mechanics. Whether or not tanks keep things in it, may be left up to them. And I promise that Klik will understand where the invisible circle is, as it does not matter which side you enter from to visualize it correctly.

    Thank you very much for considering my request,
    The Shayllamaban

    Whenever you feel your DPS is weak, you can be sure to expect a Shamanism tweak!
