Let's change the subject:

What faction/race/class does everyone plan to be?


I'm going for Troll Shaman again, I like the hair and the skill set.

I might also be a Paladin on the Alliance side though.

Human mage or warlock (very hard decision) then later on maybe a Dwarven pally. Thats if I can run the game.
Bored and such.

During the middle of the beta era, I had a tremendous amount of fun playing as a gnome warlock or gnome mage - those little suckers are cute and mobile, and despite my initial misgivings I had a great time with that race/class.

I had a Tauren Druid that could make potions and shapeshift - that's where I want to go again.

I'm tempted to do that, but I enjoy the Shaman because they're self sustaining and can heal other units.

Yeah, having the hunter pet to distract foes is very useful.

Druids can do that too, you just have to time things differently. Personally I am going to have a Night Elf Druid.

Druid healing operates in more of a buff fashion, right? You can't cast a healing spell on a certain person, but friendly units close to you will experience gradually increasing health?

No.  Druids have healing buffs and HoT's just like any other healing class.

Also, what does CC stand for? (As in, Shamans have no CC)

Crowd control (takes care of extra bad guys that you attract). I thought Shamans had CC with their totems.

So is crowd control a certain spell/skill, or is it just the ability to attack more than 1 enemy effectively at once?

As for totems, they don't do damage, they just boost surrounding units in that certain area that the totem specializes in.

No, CC doesn't attack stuff. It prevents stuff from attacking you so you can focus on something else (hence the "control" and not "attack").

Well, when you said, "Deal with" I thought you meant it in the offensive sense, not the passive.

Shamans have CC with a Stoneclaw totem (it taunts and gets the bad guys to attack it).  Fire totems attack the enemy.

And I suppose you don't really need CC when you can Ghost Wolf to get out of a bad situation.

I would say crowd control is keeping 2+ mobs off of the casters.

Keep them killable, keep them from killing your party...

Then again... I dunno :)

Huh? They have crowd control. In addition, running away doesn't prevent something from attacking one of the casters in your group.

You seem to post misconception after misconception.
