Have to say this is the first match-up in which I feel like I have zero chance to win without using prep to get cheap wow gold. Rarg may or may not be the best skilled shaman on the server but his gear is certainly top notch and his play improved a lot since the last time we fought. His earth shield with 10 charges heals himself for 655 each, 989 when it crits, and it procs every 3 seconds about wow gold. When he is under 30%, he also has a talent that basically heals him for 10% of his HP every 5 seconds to get cheap wow gold (he still raids so he did not max this talent).
I started the day going something like 0-8 against him without using prep. I tried all sorts of poison combinations. Venom totem with wound poison is a joke, I had 4 layers on him and his earth shield still heals for 655, what hell? Dual deadly poison is a lot of damage, but takes away my blind/bandage opportunity. He can not kite against 2 COS and 2 vanish and 2 sprints, stopping lesser healing wave is far more important about wow gold.
You can not burst down or stun locks a shaman that has NS and PVP trinket. Basically you have to live with the fact that he is going to heal himself to 100% once during the fight. The key is to ALWAYS leave enough energy in your bar to stop the lesser heals. Mind numbing poison is critical for this. Prep allows you to get at least one guaranteed blind bandage to get cheap wow gold. Now having dueled very few shamans in the past, my anti-totem micro is not there yet.
