I went back and read through all 4 pages of the thread. I see frequent mentions about how Shaman are priest class and shouldn't have high DPS....the year 2000 wants that tired argument back. Cleric, Druid and Shaman are all priest class. That is a label. Who has the fast and powerful heals? Cleric. Why not Druid and Shaman? Trade off for other abilities. Who gets to wear plate, leather, chain? Do I need to go on? Cannibalize is a nice AA/spell, but hardly efficient. That is a big chunk of health, for some instant mana. Can't be done in every fight, certainly not while soloing. Our heals are less powerful, cost more mana, take longer to cast. The trade off was we could DPS. They reduced our DPS, but gave us nothing back. Hardly motivating.
