Which is better for PvE AND PvP? Enhancement or Elemental Shaman?

I need one of my duals for healing. Anyways, towards the end of the game I enjoy both PvP and PvE. I am only level 70 at this moment and trying to level Elemental. It bores me to death because I have an old 80 Balance Druid, but I keep going as Elemental because I have been told Lava Burst is awesome. Enhance is fun yet I feel like I am always about to die or out of mana.

>_<

If you're OOM as Enh you're doing it wrong.

Seriously? As enhance I feel like a god all time and with the new changes I never go oom. Feral Spirit/Shamanistic Rage/Maelstrom Weapon heals would like to have a word with you.

Do you guys think Lava Burst is as godly as people make it out to be?

Lava Burst AS ELEMENTAL is pretty great since you actually use flame shock to make it crit in an elemental rotation. Enhance never uses flame shock so Lava Burst is kind of a waste.

While PvPing (Lets say in BGs), how does a decent Enhancement Shaman stand?

PvE, Enh does more DPS and provides more buffs, but Ele has a monopoly on ToW (until Locks get >2800 SP and spec Demo). Enh also has the harder rotation, though.

PvP, Ele is leaps and bounds better than Enh. Enh is complete **** right now. Don't even bother with Enh to PvP.

Because enh shamans lack stuns or an "escape button" and being a melee class not in plate and without tricks such as healing or stealth they get torn to shreds very, very quickly. They can put out a lot of damage but they are easy to take down.

Ele on the other hand hangs in the back and spams chain lightning and guranteed 7k lava burst crits soooo yea
