In this section, we will be covering the traditional rotation used by Elemental Shamans to achieve the best DPS they can for both single-target and AoE or multiple-mob encounters.

Single-Target Encounters

  • The first thing all Shamans should do is place down their respective totems – while this is generally based on your group’s needs, we’ll generally include our Totem of Wrath to assist ourselves along with other casters
  • Depending on the amount of mana you have, your rotation will vary slightly:
  • For low mana amounts, or longer fights:
  • For higher mana amounts, or shorter fights:
    • Without additional Spell Haste Rating, we can use up to three Lightning Bolt before Chain Lightning is off cooldown, so we would look at Lightning Bolt x3 > Chain Lightning > Rinse and Repeat
    • While this would be the best-case-scenario, you may only be able to use 1 or 2 Lightning Bolt‘s before your Chain Lightning is off of cooldown – this will depend on your latency

AoE Encounters
