Good 2H other than Nightfall

not only that but its insanly easy to get, one AV weekend and you can hit exaulted no bother
once you're ready to go for nightfall i would say its probbably cheaper to get the mats together, thats what i did and at the time it was significantly cheaper, this however may have changed since then
also, even once you have nightfall, unstoppable force is still better for PvP

The +15% boost is nice for casters, but this can lead to an even bigger space between melee and ranged spell dps.
The shaman heavily limits his/her own ability to deal more damage (regardless of the total raid damage he gives via the buff. Because if it's not on the damage meter, nobody will ever appreciate that as his/her damage buff).
Consequence: Spell damage will be even higher, while those who get the advantage from the + 15% spell damage debuff can berate melees (including enh shamans) for poor performance.
I'm not against using Nightfall on raids, but I don't think it should be mandatory until Naxx. You already give improved str/agi and a +30% AP windfury totem, you can keep yourself alive in extreme situations, ground spells, cleanse poisons/diesases. You can also deal ranged dps, when it's needed. IMO that's enough support as melee dps class. If you get invited to a raid only because of the Nightfall debuff, it's quite likely that they don't really need you at all.

I have a question: do all enh shammies pvp with two handers?
I see they mostly take Ancestral Knowledge.
is there a good way to pvp with a one-handed weapon and a shield for an enh sham?
IMO the defensive talents are made for a PvP 0-21-30 enh-resto shaman to survive a warrior's charge, or a rogue's chainlock until help arrives
