Ran through LFR on Hpal/Rsham. Holy paladin changes feel nice, feels pretty smooth and intuitive to me.

I think overall I still prefer shaman which only has positive changes IMO.

As far as links go I've been reading some articles on and been talking with other shamans in their discord. The consensus between mastery and crit stacking in legion is still being debated but overall resto shaman seems in a good spot (although we can't say for certain until numbers are done tuning).

Yeah mastery for shaman is still amazing. But there's ton of synergy with crit. We get mana back on crit, our artifact gives 15% haste on next spell cast after a crit, and crit isn't a terrible stat for more throughput. It'll be interesting to see how the stat weights change over the expansion, although I expect it'll still be mastery focused on release.

While mastery for resto is godly during prog, stacking too much can also hurt(sometimes too much) during some fight styles in my experience.... course that was with disc bubbles so it may have changed.

If I have time, I may try to collect different sets for different stacking.

Also random note: is it just me or do shammies have the most choice when it comes to what stat to get?
