Thousands of Shaman everywhere

Post#1 » Thu Sep 24, 2020 4:43 pm

The rvr lakes are now full of Shaman, everywhere you go in al tiers, perhaps devs should examine why that might be the case? Anyone else getting tired of it?

Full time sticky feet like wading through glue in rvr in almost every important situation you get sticky feet, which gets re-applied as soon as cleansed, rvr is now slow motion. Impossible to kill with the speed and detaunt combined with their toughness. While their dots burn through you without care, no wonder nobody wants to play Magus just play unkillable troll class with similar damage.

Nobody moaning about WL since nerfs now pet hits like a kitten and snare is nerfed. Shammy is now king, can roam the lakes solo without a care as you need at least 2 parties to kill one.

Order has AM yeah and a fraction of the numbers without the defensive run away tactics which allow Shaman to kite 12 people at a time.

Looks like the only option is to roll one myself and join the Gobbo club.

Don't forget all the chosen running around or just dps tanks on destro's side.

Agreed. Recently 10s of solo, duo and even trio shammys everywhere you go. It is actually becoming such an annoying thing. They run faster than my mount and it always takes multiple parties to kill them.

It’s been so bad that I just made a Shammy and will be joining them soon :)
Honestly too many to count

Almost as bad as the ridiculous amount of dps AM roaming the lakes enjoying being the best 1v1 class in the game...

Power is in the AP drain, a dps AM/sham that starts a 1v1 casting dots will lose. Cast AP drain and heals initially and kite with puddle and both classes beat everything. AM has the edge due to 1 more dot and AM can cleanse shaman dots but shaman cant cleanse AM dots, so AM beats shaman 1v1.

A good WL can beat a good dps sham btw. A good Mara gets utterly destroyed by a good dps AM.

Every side has a perspective of what is op. Currently it's AM > Shaman, but that may change.

The exaggerations are huge in this thread, does OP want's to have a discussion, whine or ask for help?

Can't be assed to make a long post, there are ways to counter sham, its a matter of people not actually using them. Example:


Did I mentioned that IB can use HTL on the run, and has a very nice aoe snare? And for that matter has an unremovable m1 root?
"Can we play with him, master? He seems so unhappy. Let us help him smile. Please? Or at least let us carve one on his face when he stops screaming."

Lets also not mention you can move around it... Shaman are far from OP. They are just fun to play.

Goblin Run Away tactic needed nerfs for years, it should be at least interrupted on cast like Quick Escape, weapon procs and mdps Charges, but im not sure if even that would be enough

This practically constant Flee together with ability to just cleanse snares off of yourself every few seconds while also having multiple snare options of your own, is just ridiculously out of place in this game.
