OP are you asking if one is better overall than the other in normal gameplay, or are you asking which one will win in a duel?
It is an open question. Respondees may answer as they deem appropriate, with whatever knowledge/opinion they wish to share.

DPS AM vs. DPS Shaman

How does the DPS AM compare to the DPS Shaman? Are they basically equivalent, or does one have the upper hand?

Re: The Patch of Folly

Tbh this is more of a communication problem than a balance change problem. If it were a tooltip fix or something of the sort it wouldn't need an elaboration, but as is it changes how the class performs, under certain conditions and there should be a statement of intent, what the change seeks to add...

Re: Anatomy of a Failed Patch

Probably down to perspective. City/WB maguses don't particularly care, because they are used to playing at limitted stacks, while the BTT style of squat around waiting for some unfortunate individual to pass by gets hit pretty hard, at an individual level. TB is kind of split based on how people's ...

Be more precise.
Quite right. It doesn't follow all bonus damage should be cut in half

Re: Anatomy of a Failed Patch

It seems like the supports of this patch can't decide whether the nerf was very much justified and long overdue or that the classes barely changed at all in terms of its power and you should not really complain about the nerf. Probably down to perspective. City/WB maguses don't particularly care, b...

Re: The Patch of Idiocy

My sense is engi players far outnumber magi. Some of the strongest and most organized guild(s) are Dwarf focused. It's not uncommon to see organized dwarf groups with many engi working together. There are also many high renown players that are engi. If all that is correct, what is the sense of thos...

Re: The Patch of Idiocy

The Patch presents the halving of engi and magi bonus damage as a bug fix. This is demonstrably false. The evidence was presented in comments to the patch. Engi and magi had their pet bonus damage increased to 40% in the Oct patch of 2016. It was part of the classes' reworks, therefore intentional. ...
