How to Play Enhancement Shaman in Shadowlands
Enhancement went through a significant rework in Shadowlands, and a lot of the main gameplay loop that existed in Legion and Battle for Azeroth still exists, but has taken more of a backseat in exchange for a more battle-mage oriented playstyle. It still remains a high intensity melee spec that involves juggling a lot of different abilities and effects to deal sustained damage, with a lot of procs to react to if you want to excel, but can be fragile and relies on healing tools rather than damage mitigation.
The main focus of the spec involves using primary strikes,
, while managing stacks of
to cast enhanced instant versions of Shaman spells, and reacting to
procs. This leads to a bit of RNG, but the layers of procs tend to overlap with each other to smooth some of that curve out now compared to BfA's droughts.

Your notes make it sound uneventful but all I know is the Shamans went from the bottom of the BG damage ranks to the top after the patch. One BG I was in last night 3 out of the top 5 were enhancement shamans even topping 4000 (on the blizzard leaderboard) at the end of the match! I've only seen Boomkins do that consistently.
