Destro has 2 ranged solo friendly classes- shaman and magus. Out of those, magus has a mechanic which is much harder to manage (pets), and doesn't gets spots in endgame wbs.

Here is your answer.

Shaman is a small, green, fast moving and funny class. What could be more fun than that?

I'm still waiting on Mythic to implement Night Goblin assassins.

Is it just looks and fun in lower levels? I really want to know what drives people to play a class that is outshined by every other class? Are you the best healer?? No.. Best single target maybe? No... Best group heal.. that has to be the reason with your 2.5 cast time...but you can reduce cast times with dps abilities..but yes those take time to cast so you get negative heals again. So what is the biggest advantage? ? 25% on hit to increase run speed.. how does this help your heals? Idk maybe keeps you alive a second longer before a WL jumps across the map to 1shot you. Sounds like a fun time. Both Dok and Zealot have group hot, that just tics in the back round while they burst heal. Oh but your supposed to use Furry of the Green....Is very situational, you need to be running a murder ball and have them all grouped as well, works well in organized city.. but otherwise.. donkey doo. So please tell me again why i see so many shamans? Your dps is not even close to AM btw lol
same reason people play ironbreaker both most popular classes yet they suck

It's brilliant solo, people like to play solo - really no mystery.

It's not just the look, it's the fun on higher levels too.

I think the special was better when it looped over and over. Not quite as OP as it used to be :lol:

Here is your answer.
Shaman barely get 1 spot in endgame wb if you go for proper composition but ye magus/engie pet mechanic being **** is a big problem
