It's sometimes hard to not be caught up in it. It's partially because Elemental, especially, cry out and get active about giving feedback, but you just can't shake what you've been told in the past. "it's just Beta, they're going to do numbers tuning, just relax and it's not the end of the world" just feels like someone getting to you sleep in your grave before they kill you. So I just need to vent a bit. But thankfully, people like Taka and Zul are great cheerleaders to keep me in

Total since Pre-Patch:
Elemental Blast damage increased 30%.
Lava Burst up 45%, with an additional chance to 'crit' for an extra multistrike hit.

Yup yup, we'll probably see more buffs as time goes on.
But letsee... Lightning bolt does ~2874, so a 34% increase
...I'm still not in Beta, so I have to just watch for videos and keep up on the forums for Ele Sham. Someone had asked what they were like, so I posted the quoted sections below in the WoW Forums. There's really three prominent players/theorycrafters: Gistwiki, Binklestein and Tickletotem. Gistwiki responded to my post. It's an interesting read about the State of Elemental Shamans.
