    This is a great addition to the game. Shamans were really struggling overall to be a competitive class. They really needed a buff from being so underpowered recently, and this is a great start to finally put them back in the game as a viable class. Now if they could just nerf priest some more as they really need to be reined in from where they have been in the meta for the last year and a half or so, then we may finally have a balanced game. /Kappa

      Suddenly, that sarcasm feels nonexistent in 2018.

    Mmm, A little OP since it’s water ELE stats, but it seems cool at least.

    So its same cost that healthbot by splited in two turns and overload synergies. Two less healing but you can heal Minions. May see Play in control shamman, any other version wont run him anyway. Think that control shamman has a lot of healing already, supereficient healing wave plus Hallaz Combos. I have played a lot of control shamman and I feel It could be a one copy or even just a tech if facing a lot off aggro. Anyway I dont think that just by this card conrol shamman will become top tier

      control shaman is already top tier, nobody plays it because Midrange is strictly a better deck for laddering though

        If there are decks that are strictly better then its not top tier in my opinion. So i think you mean if Mid Shamman dont exist people who wanted to play shamman would play the control. Yes I agree with that.

    Compare this to healbot: 5 mana 3/3, heal for 8 and the heal can only go to your own face.
    This Shaman minion is can come down 1 turn earlier and has 6 health, so if you’re getting aggroed down, you can play a nice 3/6 and heal for 6 at the same time for just 4 mana. Sometimes you can heal your own minions, but I think healing face and getting a 3/6 is much more powerful and relevant.

    This card makes me really sad. Since Healbot rotated out, Rogue is waiting for a good healing card, and now, of course, Shaman has it, the class which is already absolutely op! While Rogue gets middle-class cards and an abysmal legendary 🙁

      Rougue is not a healing class i dont remember a single class healing card. The class is based on tempo and healing use to be antitempo. I like that the different classes have strong and weak points. Healing seems to be a thing of paladins and priest, maybe shammans too. So if you desesperatly need healing in rougue you have to use a mediocre neutral tools.

        Raspas, Rogue played two Earthen Ring Farseers for a long time in Miracle Rogue because it is heal AND a bit of tempo (But Farseer is not enough heal to be strong enough). Also Oil Rogue played Healbot + Sludge Belcher when they were in the game.
        Because of the lack of heal and taunt, a match against a Hunter or a Pirate Warrior is almost an auto-concede for Rogue at the moment….

        There are many possibilities to combine heal with tempo…..

      3/6 for *4 mana with effect is solid. You want it to be 7/7?

    Why not just give shamans a Card that wins them the game on the spot?
    seriously, they get too much love from the dev’s recently.

    This seems like a fair and solid card. I think it will see play.

    This card is really good. Actually better than the 5 mana 4/5 priest card that restores 5. Good addition to control shaman.

      Knowing Blizzard humor this is probably intentional. Remember, Panda-Ren means Panda-Man.
