Enhancement Shaman Class Overview
Welcome to my Enhancement Shaman DPS guide for World of Warcraft WotLK 3.3.5a. This will be a short guide describing what Spec, Talents, Glyphs, Gems and Enchants you will need in order to succeed in a raid. In the end of the guide there are also some tips and basic rotation for the class.
Enhancement Shaman is a unique spec, it combines melee attacks and spell casting. While you always favor melee range of your enemies, you have the ability to strike them from a far. Shaman is one of the few melee damage dealers capable of self-healing on such level
Thanks to the wide array of useful abilities that they bring through their many totems, Enhancement Shamans always make a worthy addition to any raid.
This is build for fresh 80 level players with weak gear. It gives us cheap Shock spells and mana regeneration from Stormstrike .
Second build is more for people with good or BiS gear. Less mana regeneration, which will be compensated with by raid-member buffs or spells, making this build better in a full raid with different classes. Your totems are stronger than Death Knights buff with this build, at the cost of Intellect.
Glyph of Feral Spirit
Glyph of Stormstrike
Now the third one you have to choose
Glyph of Windfury Weapon
Glyph of Flame Shock
Glyph of Lightning Bolt
Glyph of Fire Nova
I'd suggest the Windfury Glyph for new players
Head – Arcanum of Torment
Shoulder – Greater Inscription of the Axe
Cloak – Greater Speed
Chest – Powerful Stats
Bracers – Greater Assault
Gloves – Crusher or Precision
Waist – Eternal Belt Buckle
Legs – Icescale Leg Armor
Boots – Icewalker or Greater Assault
Weapons – Berserking
Gameplay & Rotations
Enhancement Shaman has a complicated rotation, though you'll get used to it. Don't forget to use two weapons (dual wield). Two-handed weapons are worse for your DPS, since it only gives you bigger Windfury Crits, nothing more.
When 5 stacks of Maelstrom Weapon use Lightning Bolt
Use Magma Totem
Stormstrike and Lava Lash after Maelstrom Weapon used
Debuff from Stormstrike all the time is on target
Use Flame Shock if not used on the target yet
Earth Shock if Flame Shock already used
Lightning Shield refreshed at 1-3 stacks
Fire Nova if everything else is on cooldown
