As someone who plays mage but always wanted elemental shaman to be viable in PvE:

A comparable rank of lightning bolt to other classes nukes. Max rank Lightning bolt is a lot weaker than max rank Frostbolt/Fireball/Shadowbolt. Not only that, but those other spells get additional bonus ranks from the AQ tomes.

Also, Fire mage gets a talent that gives them mana regen from crits called...Master of the Elements. And Elemental shaman gets nothing like that. Yeah. Like Elemental Shaman has a lot of crit only through talents and base int. Like 25% chance to crit without gear. And that talent would be great. But alas.
To be fair Mage and Warlock are purely DPS classes and Shaman is a versatile class. There should be differences.
Certainly. But it's a shame that BC strikes a good balance with this and Vanilla does not; where in BC, elemental is a support spec with good enough dps to take on a raid coupled with great buffs and in Vanilla, elemental is just too bad to even fill a decent support role. That's my point. It has neither the dps or the buffs.

I was always jealous of classes that could increase their move speed before level 40. Aspect of the cheetah, travel form, or even just blink or sprint -- any time I was running anywhere, I'd get passed.
YES! Mobility envy is a huge part of the Vanilla leveling experience. ;-)

What youre asking for isnt unreasonable... A comparable tome drop from AQ to help validate the spec. Not a complete overhaul to rebalance things. I feel this way about SO many specs. Most don't need an overhaul. Just a subtle shift to help them validate themselves. This wouldnt rewrite the meta. This wouldnt suddenly make Ele shamans the kings of DPS... For the most part this would still be a fringe spec with mana issues, but at least it would be validated.

As a Warrior it was having no way to throw a quick heal or a direct buff to help others I passed by. I could always https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=355/https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=20560 the mobs they were fighting and help them out, but it's not the same. I'd always bandage those that were no longer in combat though :D
