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.

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

Coming from an Alliance back in vanilla, it would have to be the shaman. Their toolkit was just so cool and diverse! They can heal, they can melee, they can cast spells, they can wear a shield! They can rez. They can rez themselves! They have windfury weapon. It was just wild to me! I wish my friends and I had rerolled horde during vanilla. I didn't make that mistake in BC though :lol:

lol, they might pass you now with their tricks but you get one of the cooler looking mounts at the end of it.

Leveling as a warrior I'd have to say....
everything pretty much any class can do pre-60.

As a warrior if you pull extra mobs you are pretty much dead before sweeping strikes, and even then you have virtually zero ways to mitigate damage or heal, so you just die.

Just wait till I hit 60 tho!

I'm a pally player but I spent my fair share fighting against paladins in BGs as my orc warrior.

Why I hate paladins:
-Can wear plate as healers
-spam freedom onthemselves and Flag
-cleanse out of everything
-blessing of sacrifice out of CC
-bubble and spin flags
-free mount
Why I love playing paladins:

-spam freedom on myself and Flag
