View Full Version : Shaman in arenas

02-06-2008, 08:55 AM
I've rolled a shaman with a friend on stormreaver PVP realm, level 67 at the moment. Planning on only doing PvP at level 70, I've leveled as enhancement and I would like to stay enhancement, but it seems that we aren't really viable in 2v2 and 3v3 as it is, or that's the impression I'm getting from what I've read so far. I like the whole pew pew WF procs thing but we can get CCed and movement impaired so easily =(. He's a hunter and we would like to do some 2v2, 3v3 together at least, any viable combinations there as enhancer or ele?

Anyway I would like to hear from other shamans which spec they find most enjoyable in arena, and I'm prolly not going resto, so my choice is between; elemental and enhancement.

I read a bit about this, there are a post from a 2000+rated all bracets US shaman on official forums he talked about tacticts and such. But he mentioned the hunter/enhanc shaman as a poor setup cause you would suffer from the lack of CC as you mentioned yourself ill see if i cant find the post.

I fail epic on searhing i cant find it :(

It totally depends on the rating you will be happy with, 2 on 2 is a pain in the arse unless your resto. And as enchance u will find half ur time chasing down the oponent or waiting for shamanitic rage to come of CD. If i was you id get a decent 5 on 5 together as its the only chance atm you will hit high end rating.

On the other hand try geting a 3 on 3 as geting a reliable 5 on 5 isnt so easy. Druid. rogue and enhanc works well or ofc get a retradin but thier nerfd soon so be quick :P.

But ive played 2 on 2 with a hunter and didnt manage above 1630 the lack of cc atm is really starting to lose for us shamans, just wait for hex and all will be different :)
