    Default Shaman synergy crystal and AOE

    Hi, should I be trying to keep lightning hammer up for the crystal bonus when AOEing as a shaman or is it a dps loss? What does the crystal bonus mean? 25 more damage for 15 seconds? Seems kind of eh...

    Love shaman and can't wait for the upcoming changes. Can you push them out to live this coming week Kervik?

    No you should not use Lightning hammer in AoE. The crystal applies a debuff on 1 target, but even in single target it's pretty useless :P

    Also the Shaman changed will be included in the next big update 2.2. Not sure when that is though.

    Thanks for the tip on LH. I was not sure if it buffed me or debuffed the target.

    I believe Kervik said that they were not planning to wait for 2.2 to roll out the class changes.

    Actually I was wrong. It was Daglar that said it but I don't know if he means the class changes already pushed to PTS or just the double damage/healing ones.

    I read it as the double dipping (and subsequent readjustment of damage/healing values).

    You are probably right. Quite a few of the damage changes to other callings are in response to double dipping though so we may see some but not all sooner rather than later.

    The Shaman's Frozen Wrath currently benefits from the double-dipping bug on AoE. So when the bug is fixed, we can say goodbye to our beautiful AoE. =(

    Shaman AoE on the PTS (where this bug is now fixed) is still above a lot of the other single target dps souls, it's just not ridiculous and broken. Shaman doing more AoE dps than our AoE dps soul is pretty silly.
