Shaman Class

First, let me say that needing a 10 Rep in Arcangrove to get the Shaman class is painful. It takes forever to level up rep. But, I must have it!

And I think it's great that non-mems can get it.

Here are the stats for the class as posted in the design notes:

Ancestor’s Flame
10 Mana, 4 second cooldown
Deals moderate damage to up to three targets, and applies Scorched Spirit. Damage increased by Elemental Embrace.

15 mana, 4 second cooldown
Deals moderate damage to up to three targets. Any damage caused to targets affected by Scorched Spirit will heal the shaman for a portion of the damage dealt. Healing increased by Elemental Embrace.

Dry Lightning
40 Mana, 16 second cooldown
Deals heavy damage to the target. Damage increased by Elemental Embrace.

Ancestral Teachings
Passive Ability
Intellect increased 15%

Primal Fury
Passive Ability
Crit chance increased by 8%

Elemental Embrace
60 mana, 16 second coodown
Deals light damage to target and applies Elemental Embrace, negating all target Evasion and Critical Strike chance. This effect also makes the Shaman’s spells more powerful, and gets stronger the more spells the Shaman casts against the target.

I suppose the idea is to cast Elemental Embrace on a target then use the buff to make the other abilities better. But at 60 mana, I'm not seeing this as a great idea. Can you imagine what would happen in PvP if you blew all of your mana on one target?
