The Best PvE Elemental Shaman Build for WoW Classic

As a hybrid class, Shamans combine the traits of DPSers, Healers and, to a lesser extent, Tanks. Thanks to this, they are among the most universal characters in WoW Classic. Elemental Shamans take full advantage of what their Class provides which makes them arguably the best Support DPS specialization in the game. For one, they can equip shields and mail, leather or cloth armor, which makes them flexible when it comes to equipment. On top of that, they can deploy a Class-specific themed group of ground-based buffs called Totems. With these, they can provide various powerful damage-increasing buffs (Windfury Totem, Grace of Air Totem, and Strength of Earth Totem), assist their group by providing very strong utility (Poison Cleansing Totem, Tremor Totem), or help with group's sustain and longevity (Stoneskin Totem, Windwall Totem, Mana Spring Totem). Moreover, they have: the best interrupt in the game in the form of the Earth Shock (its cooldown is just 6 seconds which is the shortest of all interrupts), an ability to Purge Targets which removes magic effects from them, and the Frost Shock which is infamous for being able to perma-slow a Target (Frost Shock's slow effect is longer than its cooldown). On top of that, they have powerful PvE DPS-oriented tools, like Elemental Mastery and Elemental Focus, that let them deal sustained Damage and burst down their Targets quickly if needed.To get more news about Buy WoW Items, you can visit lootwowgold news official website.

Thanks to the utility that they provide, every group will benefit from having an Elemental Shaman in it. This fact combined with Shaman's versatility makes Elementals an inherent part of almost every Horde Raid.Note: Here, we will point you only towards the best PvE Elemental Shaman Race. If you'd like to know more about other race picks, please check our WoW Classic Beginners Guide, where we dive deep into all available Shaman races.

There is only one profession that makes a real impact in Raids and it is Engineering. It gives you access to powerful explosives that increase your AoE and Single-Target DPS. Thrown explosives have a decent range, so you can use them effectively while sticking with Ranged groups of your Raid and providing them with Totem buffs. The fact that Engineering is also considered the best PvP profession is an added benefit to its power in the PvE environment. Alchemy is the second interesting option. It will let you brew a lot of much-needed Consumables and when paired with Herbalism, allow you to make a nice profit on the Auction House (this is a less competitive option as most of the Consumables that come from Alchemy can be bought from other players rather cheaply).

At the start, you should pick Mining to supplement your Engineering Skill, you can always switch it to another profession of your liking later on. If you've decided to go for Alchemy, Herbalism is the natural second profession pick - we recommend you stick with it for as long as you actively use Alchemy.
