Enhancement Shaman Best In Slot Gear


Copy & Pasted from
  • With many different sources of gearing and loot scarcity in Shadowlands, targeting your absolute Best in Slot gear isn't entirely realistic; instead, we've created a Best in Slot list from the ideal Elemental Shaman raid drops found in Ny'alotha, to help you decide what to prioritize.
  • It first presents the best in slot items before listing, slot by slot, all the items, with a level higher than 346, that you can acquire in the game. We also explain how you will be competing for loot with other classes. The other articles of our Enhancement Shaman guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the left.

Strength provides more AP per point than raw attack power, and it also scales.

A tip: Never throw a piece of hit item away, keep it in bag for switching around.
There are several talent specializations that vanilla enhancement shamans use. Below are the most common builds, but most are able to be tweaked to your liking and playstyle. I'll explain the reasoning behind my chosen spec, but feel free to try any of the other styles and change as you see fit.
Enhance / Elemental 18/33/0
Enhancement tree: 33 Talent points.
Ancestral Knowledge - Useful. Shamans can struggle with mana, but if you feel that ranged classes are kiting you too easily pick up shield specialization instead.
Guardian Totems - Useful. Increases your survivability further. Very useful against any burst classes.
Thundering Strikes - Essential! Critical attacks are always welcome, if they proc at the same time as a windfury proc you can oneshot cloth users with some luck!
Improved Ghost Wolf - Useful. Shamans have no gap closer so having ghost wolf on a 1 second cooldown is almost essential
Improved Lightning Shield - Useful. Punish anyone attacking you with a nice boost to lightning shield damage.
Two Handed Axes and Maces - Essential! Enhancement relies on big, slow two-handers for their huge windfury damage.
Flurry - Essential! The problem with two handers is they are slow, and windfury only has a 20% chance to proc anyway. Synergises well with Thundering Strikes
Elemental Weapons - Essential! Raises the Windfury attack power bonus by a further 40%.
Parry - Essential! Your parry chance might not be astonishingly high, but a parry can easily be the difference between life and death.
Weapon Mastery - Essential! A solid 10% damage boost to your white hits, stacks wonderfully with crits and Windfury
Stormstrike - Essential! Gives you an extra white hit, which has the chance to crit as well as proc windfury. Boosts your next two damaging nature spells (shocks, lightning bolts) by 20%.
Elemental Tree: 18 Talent points
Concussion - Useful. Taken for the bonus damage to our shocks mostly, the lightning bolt damage helps if you catch a melee class at range however. Convection can be taken instead if you need the mana, but hopefully you chose Ancestral Knowledge in the enhancement tree to help with your mana issues.
Earth's Grasp - Extremely useful. Stops people from simply killing your stoneclaw totem instead of letting you soak up their hits and increases the slowing range of your earthbind totem.
Elemental Warding - Extremely useful. Boosts your fire, frost and nature resists by 10%. Seriously helps against mages, druids as well as other shamans.
Reverberation - Essential! Reducing the cooldown of your shock spells means you have more interrupts to deal with those pesky kiters and a ton more burst potential.
Eye of the Storm - Extremely useful. Every time you suffer a critical hit you benefit from 6 seconds of focused casting which prevents your cast time from being slowed by hits. Makes it ridiculously easy to heal yourself after taking several nasty hits while making unprepared rogues trivial. Quick note, many people choose Elemental Devastation instead and while it is a valid choice you'll find spell criticals either too rare to benefit from, or you'll be throwing lightning bolts outside of melee range anyway.
Enhance / Restoration 0/33/18
Classic Enhancement Shaman Best in Slot (BiS) Pre-Raid Gear ...Very similar to the 18/33/0 spec, however instead of moving down the elemental tree you instead focus on defensive talents such as Shield Specialization while aiming for Healing Focus in the restoration tree. It mainly boils down to whether you want a 100% reduction in spell pushback upon being crit for 6 seconds in the 18/33/0 tree, stronger offensive spells but weaker heals or a passive 70% chance to avoid spell pushback with stronger heals, higher hit rating but weaker spells.
1st. Placing the totems is important ;P There´s Earth, Fire, Water & Air totems. The ones u will be using are;
Earth: Strength of Earth Totem (make a resto shaman do stoneskin instead)
Fire: Searing Totem (Not flametounge because it will not work with Windfury up also) don´t use searing so cc breaks.
Water: Mana Spring Totem/healing stream totem. Use poison cleansing totem at bosses like Hakkar if you want to. Not every tactic includes it.
Air: Windfury Totem to buff tanks & melees, Grace of Air to hunters. Depends on who is in your grp. Slot
You can basically drag away every other totem not listed here, in case youré not doing pvp.
Of course we have the resistance totems: Fire res, frost & nature. They will come in handy for MC, bwl, AQ40 & Sapphiron in Naxxramas.
2nd. Now we come to the basic spell rotation. Its freaking easy imo:
Single target: Stormstrike (use everytime cd is down) > Flameshock (Keep up, will not work in mc & bwl due to mobs fire resist, will work in zg,aq & naxx) > Frostshock (Use when flameshock is up), remember to use Stormstrike 1000% prio over other spells. Cake. Be careful with earthshock, high threat. But if you know you can use it, do it. Awesome dmg if used with storsmstrike.
Aoe: Put down Fire Nova Totem for the instant fire dmg, and then a Magma Totem. Start spamming Chain Lightning at this point.
Head: Libram of Constitution, q guy: http://db.vanillagaming.org/?npc=9836 . Lesser Arcanum of Constitution (+100hp)
Shoulders: Zandalar Signet of Might (+30 ap) ZG Exalted.
Cloak: Greater fire resistance (+15 fire res) / 5 to all resistances when you get to AQ40
Chest: Greater stats (+4)
Bracers: Strength +9
Gloves: Agility (+15)
Legs: Libram of Constitution, q guy: http://db.vanillagaming.org/?npc=9836 . Lesser Arcanum of Constitution (+100hp)
Boots: +7stamina
Weapon: WF Weapon enchantment & Crusader enchant
Flask of Titans (1200hp, to reduce pressure for healers)
greater fire prot potion (absorbs fire dmg, for raggy etc)
