Alright, let’s get right to the point-- Shaman, while really good, lacks depth. It’s the most brainless of classes and is only outclassed by the very best runemages. You never see people pick right side talent tree because it hinders DPS, which is what people play shaman for(if not for rupert). It’s clear the left side was made for PvE and the right side PvP, but there’re simply better choices for pvp than right-side shaman. I’ve spoken with many, and we can all agree, right side shaman talent tree should be part of the classes base kit. They’re not compelling picks for talents when you could just have stupid DPS.
Now, the topic of balance comes into play. Shaman is the go-to DPS class for those who don’t wanna spend a copious amount of time in Highsteppe spamming fireball 2. As we’re all aware, ranger and scoundrel are simply inferior and in dire need of buffs. Giving the 2nd best class a buff would just make the gap even wider. Of course, this could be the perfect time to buff scounrel and ranger, or nerf shaman and runemage(for the love of god, nerf runemage). I don’t have any suggestions for what a new right-side talent tree would look like, so hopefully the wonderful folks that stalk these forums will be so kind as to suggest some below. But yes, tl;dr, shaman right-side talent tree should just be integrated into the base class, and maybe should see some nerfs in DPS or whatever as a result.
