Shaman Roles end game

Postby Schnami93 » Wed Feb 18, 2015 8:52 pm

I plan on making a tauren shaman soon. I never got to play vanilla end game as i was level 49 on a troll shaman when BC came out. i immediately went enhance to dual wield winfury and did pvp the rest of that expansion. What are some suggestions for playing a successful shaman end game at 60 and any tips for leveling?

Clearcasting in Elemental is a good way to go for leveling, along with some points in enhancement. 2h enhancement leveling is fun, but is dependent on windfury RNG.

As for end game Shamans: You can main heal, dps as enhancement/elemental, or even maintank. We have a Shaman maintank in <Hate>. Heals are always in demand it seems, but do whatever you enjoy most

1h+Shield for solo leveling. It boasts the most survivability and the least damage lost to overkill; whether you use Rockbiter or Windfury then is up to you. No matter what spec you choose, you'll be fighting things the same way, so Enhance is usually preferred.

In what situation can a shaman be a maintank with no tanking skills and wearing mail gear?

Shamans have few tanking related threat abilities and talents and some gear is out there to support it.

We've used a shaman as a main tank everywhere up to and including BWL.

Survivability is fine, but threat generation is an issue with the gear our dps has picked up lately.

You'd have to ask him for details, but given where all the mitigation talents are I'd say it's probably Enhancement with a dash of Elemental.

You can play whatever you like the most.
That being said the 2 things i would not recommend are tanking and elemental in PVE. Tanking as a shaman takes a ton of effort, knowledge and probably consumables to do in such a way that doesnt make people hate grouping with you. Elemental suffers heavily from mana problems in PVE, in pvp elemental works fine.

I'd also be weary of playing Enhancement in pve altho it can be alright-ish.
Resto is the only spec that is really naxx-viable but thats a nonissue for now.
Better known as Stromgar nowadays
