I decided to write a post on Blizzard's shaman forums about the numerous problems still facing our class, with the emphasis placed on the Elemental tree and how useful/desirable it is to raids.
Of course, this was a complete waste of time, because Blizzard hasn't given any indication that they're reading ANYTHING on the shaman forums since they fucked up our half-review.
So to make that post less of a waste of my time, I thought I'd put a link here so people can read it if they want. And who knows, maybe someone from Blizzard will visit this site and they'll say "oh my god, we completely forgot about shamans for the past 2 years!"
