How is your dps/pvp ability
I played a ret pally in wow and I really like the idea of maybe doing something along the same lines here with a shaman because I really enjoy survivability. Is this feasable or is your dmg low compared to warrior base? I watched some videos and it looks like shaman dmg is way lower than a warriors. Is it a pipedream?
Shaman have great burst damage. Not sure what videos you've been watching.
Ya like I said its only youtube videos so its hard to tell what to expect. I watched some 40 something champ tear things up with 600+ hits and a 50 shaman kill some mobs hitting for 300ish with attack abilities. I have no idea about gear or anything like that.
Also the shaman had a caster staff which may have been a dps loss.... unless the caster ones have the same dps as melle hammers later. I know they don't at lower levels.
Champions do very beastly damage right now, when they get a killing blow they can generally tear the next target up in a few seconds. I wouldn't even try to compare ANYTHING to them in terms of damage at the moment.
I have leveled alongside a champion from level 1-39 now as a Druid/Shaman/Sentinel and while it is apparent that I do less DPS than him, I find that I am very comparable to several other DPS souls in Mage/Warrior/Rogue.
