Shaman Love

Thank you for the update info guys. I'm extermely happy to learn that Shamans, in fact, can NOT enter into indoor areas with Ghost Wolf form. YES! I can stop hating them and go back to disliking them. :D

Also a great email clarifying the difference between starfire and starshards.

see the emails below!

Hi Alachia,

Santo (Shaman on Hyjal), dont hate me.
Im a big fan of your Podcast and I just got done
hearing your interview with Sam on Wowcast Ep.15.
Just wanted to clarify that Shaman CANNOT use
Ghostwolf form indoors or anywhere considered "inside"
(like caves, etc.). They have never been able to.

Good work with the show, keep it up!

Hi Alachia,

I just wanted to send in a quick email about the Shaman Ghost Wolf. Sam
indicated that the Shaman can use this form anywhere. That is incorrect. It's
not useable indoors or in instances.

Don't hate the Shaman. We rock.

Love the show, keep it up

Hey Alachia,

Yeah, me again. I was re-listening (I’m a podcast addict) to episode 15. There has been some confusion in several podcasts about starshards and starfire. Starshards is an elf priest racial spell. It is a channeled 6 second DoT that maxes out at Rank 7 with 936 points of arcane damage over the channeling time. I’m not sure if it’s interruptible. Starfire is a druid spell which is the largest direct damage spell we get. At Rank 7 this spell does 496-584 points of arcane damage. It has a 3.5 second cast. Hope that helps the confusion a little.

Really a great podcast!
Nick

Still great shows!

Good to see the Shaman gettin' the love, still waiting for the show on Shammies though...I have a feeling the wait will be a long time coming though ;)

Keep up the great work and if you wanted to contact me...I'm not sure if you still have my e-mail or not, if not, I'd be happy to give it to ya again and we can chat.

Bye bye!

Someone pointed out my shaman mistake on my forums. (Yes, blatant plug.) ;-P

My Shammy is only 10th level, though, so I blame it on not yet knowing all about the class.

There's a reason my Shammy class talk is going to be one of the last ones... gives me a chance to level her. ;-P

I guess that's understandable...enjoy levelin' your Shammy, I know I did, if you had any questions feel free to let me know!

i'm actually glad you made the mistake Sam. I wouldn't have gotten to meet so many shammies otherwise.

"oh well, guess you Druids have the upperhand on your travel form"

How so?

Shaman Ghost Wolf weaknesses:
Casting time
Can be dispelled
Cannot be used indoors

Druid Travel Form weaknesses:
Susceptible to Scare Beast
Susceptible to Hibernate
Cannot be used indoors
Mana cost scales with level (as a druid levels, each form costs more mana)

Since I dunno if Shaman Ghost Wolf has the scaling issue, I will say each form has at least 3 weaknesses, which makes them about even in weakness.

The benefits of Travel Form over Ghost wolf, though are instant cast and removal of snares (not Hunter freeze traps, though), which Ghost Wolf does not have to its advantage. But, Shaman also get Ghost Wolf a full 10 levels before Druids get Travel Form.

I would have swore Hibernate can be used on ghost wolf form shamans... but i havent played my druid in a while so im likely to be wrong.
