In this section we will be covering information on various spells and abilities that are in an Enhancement Shaman’s arsenal for Wrath of the Lich King. We’ll then be covering a detailed rotation for both single-target encounters and Area-of-Effect (AoE) encounters.
Now that we have explained the Enhancement Shaman’s abilities in-depth, we will move forward with the Single-Target Rotation. As we mentioned previously, the Enhancement Shaman has a rather difficult rotation to pull off, often annoying or outright demoralizing players who are trying to master it. Remember this and try not to give up.
First of all, we are using the Lightning Shield build, which means that we will have to upkeep Lightning Shield at all times. Now, due to Static Shock, we will have an on-hit chance to expend one of the orbs from the Lightning Shield.
Make sure to open up with Flame Shock on the target – keep it up at all times. Your default Shock to follow with after Flame Shock should always be Earth Shock. Then, after placing Flame Shock on the target, you should spam both Stormstrike and Lava Lash on cooldown.
While your Stormstrike and Lava Lash are still on cooldown, and you have just used your Earth Shock, you will want to make sure that your Magma Totem is placed in the proximity of the target. Considering the way we spent our talents, you will want to use Magma Totem at all times and maintain it.
The daunting part of this rotation is the simultaneous upkeep of both your Flame Shock and Lightning Shield, at all times. But, do not fret – with proper practice, it will become second nature to you.
Now that we have explained the rotation, we will also offer a summary to help you visualize it.
With proper practice, you will master this rotation and become a true Enhancement Shaman.
As for the Area-of-Effect rotation, the Enhancement Shaman can make use of three distinct spells that can help him bring true devastation to groups of piled enemies.
Now we can literally fry our enemies with the use of Chain Lightning.
As an Enhancement Shaman, we do not possess as many AoE abilities as the Retribution Paladin or the Fury Warrior, but our abilities will still make quick work of any grouped-up enemies.
