HA! Trick question. The only side of the conflict you'll be playing as a Shaman is the Horde. Don't let this detract from what you think of the Shaman, it's important to see both sides of a conflict after all. If your friends are playing Alliance, give it your best shot to convince them to convert. Tell them you want to try out a class that isn't even available to the Alliance, who knows they may want to try the Shaman class too. And don't let the thought of 5 Shamans grouping together bother you, seeing as how they can fit multiple roles simultaneously.
If your friends already play on the side of the Horde then you're already set. All you have to do now is pick a race to play and start moving on to the higher echelons of Shaman-hood.
