My current main is Elemental Shaman.
I’m not actively angry about it, but I don’t agree with reverting back to WoD. Maelstrom was a pretty nice rebranding of what we already had. It functioned mostly the same but was a little bit more intuitive and offered room for more varied mechanics that Fulm Stacks / Tectonic Thunder Stacks didn’t.
But it’s a resource bar so idiots are spouting off “good riddance, it turned Shamans into ranged Warriors” as if that’s even remotely true.
OTOH, I mained Holy Paladin last patch and I’m happy to see Holy Power coming back to Holy and Prot. Much more fun IMO. Reverts aren’t automatically bad.
But then I saw Glimmer of Light as a talent and now I know I won’t play the spec because if that exists without some actual overhaul to Holy’s base AoE kit, it WILL be mandatory, and I don’t enjoy the way Holy Paladins keep getting turned into clunkier versions of Mistweaver Monks (or to a lesser extent Resto Druids). It feels distinctly non-Paladiny to spread weak HoTs around an entire raid from range. That’s effectively what Glimmer is. That’s what Eternal Flame was back in MoP. Both spells should go die in a fire.
Just revamp Holy Paladin and give them some built in way to do Raid Healing. They don’t have to be the best at it, but they clearly need some help in that department, and I’d prefer it to be something a bit more thematically fitting.
