Is it bad I play a spec I enjoy rather than the one that puts out the most dps?

I've never understood the appeal of Shamans. I've always heard that Enhancement was mega fun, but I could never get into it. I've tried on six different occasions throughout three different expansions to level one and I always get bored adound level 40 and stop.

I find shamans fun. What I don't find fun are druids. I just don't see the appeal there.

That is because leveling a Shaman is boring as hell because they don't get all their fancy tools and stuff til the late levels. Then again, leveling period is boring as hell so that doesn't really matter much. You got to get one to max level and try it out, THEN you will realize how much fun Enhancement can be.

Leveled a resto shaman to 80 and hated it. Felt like a gimped priest with only stronger basic spells and no variety at all.

As long as your personal DPS is competitive with your peers, you're fine. The 'top DPS' rankings are typically exaggerated, because the top players will pretty much always take the theorycrafted top DPS spec because a 2% or 3% increase can be the difference between world first and world second. However, for most players, 2% more damage isn't going to make or break a fight, but because all the best players are playing the spec that does 2% more damage in a theorycrafting sim, all the other good players do it, too. This means that the people playing the unfavored spec are either not that good or just messing around, which means their output is going to be less....

This might've changed with the Mists changes to levels, but my shaman was boring as hell until the mid-60s. Then I got Maelstrom Weapon. That changed EVERYTHING. It went from a tedious slog of hitting buttons on cooldown then autoattacking, to a very dynamic and active rotation.

So... yes, it takes patience and a lot of levels of boring to get there.

TBC and Wotlk levelling for Shaman was TERRIBLE. Np just shocks + auto attack with a 2h for lots of levels. I loved not having WF until 30 or so, DW, SS and LL until 40's, that was truly great design!
