Elemental Shaman PvE Guide - WoW Classic

Posté le 15/07/2019

Welcome to our WoW Classic Elemental Shaman guide, made to help you understand how the class worked during Vanilla

This guide will help you optimize your Shaman’s DPS for level 60 PvE content, potentially allowing you to become your group/raid/guild’s best DPS…or even the server’s! ;)

We recommend you use our shaman leveling guide 1-60 to reach level 60 fast and comfortably.

Elemental Shamans use elemental forces and totemic magic in order to destroy their enemies with ranged spells.
Elemental Shaman PvE Guide Classic WoW

1. Recommended race for Elemental Shaman in PvE

Here is the race we recommend you pick for your Elemental Shaman in WoW Classic for PvE.

Horde PVE : Troll

Berserking : Very powerful active racial ability.


For Elemental, Troll is by far the best choice, Berserker is just too powerful. That being said, it’s not a huge disadvantage if you want to pick another race. Orcs don’t really get anything for Elemental, and Taurens are only a bit tankier thanks to Endurance.

 Berserker is a very powerful 3 min CD, giving at least 10% haste, up to 30% when your Health becomes very low. Careful with how much mana you spend though!

2. Recommended professions for Elemental Shamans

Here are the professions we recommend you pick for your Elemental Shaman for PvE.

Skinning

Skinning is a very good choice when combined with Leatherworking, allowing you to be almost self-sufficient.

Leatherworking

The main appeal of Leatherworking is the creation of armors.

Herbalism

Herbalism lets you gather plants and herbs. Combine it with Alchemy and you can now make your own potions to get ready for raids, or simply sell the mat the Auction House for gold.

Alchemy

Crafting potions, oils or elixirs.

Level required: -

Protection contre les éléments: Useful throughout Classic, this talent gives you more freedom when you’re gearing for elemental resistances

Focalisation totémique: One of the shaman’s roles is to invoke different kinds of totems to support your group. Because casting these totems costs a lot of mana, this talent is important to reduce their cost, leaving you with enough mana to do good DPS.

Soutien de la nature:  3% hit chance, a small but mandatory bonus to reach the spell hit cap.

Maîtrise des flots:  increases your critical hit chance with lightning spells.

4. PvE Spell rotation for Elemental Shamans

The Elemental Shaman rotation is quite simple; just keep an eye on your mana. You will need to use mana potions and runes properly.

During fights, you want to keep your totems up as much as you can.

In Single-target, you want to keep Totem incendiaire up as well as Horion de flammes. After these 2 spells are used, spam Eclair.

In Multi-target situations, use Totem de Magma and Chaîne d'éclairs (you still want to use Horion de flammes)

Totems :

Shamans’ main unique trait is their ability to deploy totems. You can have one totem of each element up at the same time (earth, fire, water, air). Elemental Shamans’ fire totem is used for their own DPS, but not the other ones. You must therefore adapt to your raid’s needs. While some totems would benefit you more than others, making your raid stronger is more important.

Melee DPS need Totem Furie-des-vents and Totem de Force de la Terre to be up. Casters want Totem de Tranquillité de l'air and Totem Fontaine de mana, cloth classes particularly appreciate that last totem.

The Maîtrise totémique talent is very convenient. The raid moving doesn’t hinder you as much.

That being said, these are not always the totems you want to use. If the tank is in trouble, especially if you have a lot of melee classes in your group, Totem de Peau de pierre is a powerful tool.

Another example: Totem de Séisme gets read of pesky fear effects. 

Some raids have diseases or poisons, in which case Totem de Purification des maladies et Totem de Purification du poison become very valuable.

A few bosses Vaelastrasz le Corrompu or Saphiron have mechanics dealing massive elemental damage, making Totem de résistance au Feu or Totem de résistance au Givre extremely important.

During intense fights, as an experienced shaman, you can try to maintain several buffs given by the same totem type. For example, you can drop a Totem Furie-des-vents which will buff your raid’s weapons for 10 seconds, and immediately replace it with Totem de Grâce aérienne. That way, your players will also benefit from the agility bonus from that second totem. You can keep switching back & forth to maintain additional buffs on the raid. This is known as “totem twisting”.

This useful trick will make you very valuable in your raid!

5. Stat priority for Elemental Shaman in PvE

Here is the stat priority for Elemental Shamans in PvE.

  1. Spell Hit Chance(17%)
  2. Spell Power
  3. Intelligence
  4. Spell Critical Strike Chance
  5. MP5
  6. Spirit
chaman elem pve wow classic

Elemental Shamans’ stat priority is a typical caster one. There are however a few differences, because you’re using different gear: leather until level 40, then mail.

This means they share their armor type with Hunters, who often need gear that has both agility and intelligence. Agility is great for Enhancement, but pretty useless for Elemental.

You can find here lists of the best possible equipment your Elemental Shaman can use in PvE thanks to our « Best-in-slot » tool below

6. PvE Macros for Elemental Shamans

1. Burst Macro 

#showtooltip Elemental Mastery  

/castsequence Elemental Mastery, Trinket, Chain Lightning

If you’re using an active trinket (from the list below), you want to use this macro as often as you can to maximize your DPS.

Don’t forget that you can’t use 2 active trinkets at the same time. If you have 2 of them equipped, you must wait for the first’s effect to fade before using the second.

2. Cure Disease or Purge?

#showtooltip Cure Disease
/cast [@mouseover,help] Cure Disease ; [@mouseover,harm][harm,nodead] Purge ; [help,nodead] Cure Disease
>

This macro allows you to either remove a debuff from a friendly target or remove a buff from an enemy with the same key.

This isn’t 100% reliable however (for example if the target has a paladin Bouclier divin on them, the macro might derp), but it’s usually worth using.

3. Earth Shock

#showtooltip Earth Shock
/cast [@focus,harm][@focustarget,harm][@targettarget,harm][@target,harm] Earth Shock

This macro allows you to cast spells at enemies without having to look for a target, giving you an edge to do competitive dps.

In the example above, we use Horion de terre, interrupting an enemy’s cast, but this macro can be used with others spells. This allows you to cast a spell even if you’re targeting an ally, as long as this ally is targeting an enemy. It also works if you’re just targeting an enemy normally

7. Consumables for high level PvE

Consumables are extremely important in Classic WoW, especially in the beginning or when a new raid is released. Alchemy and Cooking bring a lot of value to a raid; we recommend you follow our guides to level these professions.

You will find below a non-exhaustive list of some necessary consumables for raiding.

Mana :


Health:

Magical Protection :

There are many more consumables that can be useful for specific encounters or hard bosses.
