Enhancement Shaman PvP

"Because we need Pro enhancement shamans"

Hello dear reader, this is my first guide (ever) and maybe my last. This took me A LOT of my beautiful time. I hope that you enjoy it and understand it.

Click here for my new 4.3.4 guide! remember to comment!



Totemlycool - World of warcraft rap

[Chorus]
Warcraft Ho! I Play it everyday
I Aint got no life, I never get laid
I Aint got no shame, My friends are the same
World of Warcraft, we love this damn game!

[Mad Max]
[Verse 1]
R-O-U-G-E, that's not how you spell it, get it right (NOOB!)
Why? Why? someone tell me why I look in LFG,and what do I find?
Hybrids! Hybrids! Everywhere!
You can Tank, you can Heal, but you really don't care
You just want to DPS with no CC G-T-F-O P-L-Z
Even in the Battlegrounds, everybody DPS
Can I get a heal? (NO!)
Can we play D?(NO!)
So what we gonna do? Tell me, what we gonna do?
Group up, farm HKs, and lose!
I'm at the Aution House, trying to buy some nether
Then I get a whisper, from a gold spammer
So I right-click (no thanks), report spam
And I tell everyone please ignore them
Patch 2.4, 25 dailies, if you think I need gold you must be crazy!
Want to talk politics? (Don't use the trade channel!)
Want to talk about your life? (Don't use the trade channel!)

[Chorus]x2

(World of Warcraft is the greatest MMORPG ever!)
(So all you haters out there, think Final Fantasy is better?)
(I hope your server goes down over the weekend!)

Talents


"Because you need to be talented and powerful"



1)[Optimizing Survivability]
General build. Its has Earthen Power and 3/3 points on Elemental Warding for more defence.
Toughness is not that great. 10% health at the cast of 5 points, is not a good deal. 30% movement reducement is not good either. Remember you have Earthbinding totem which slows the enemy and with Earthen power talent, it remove slows. Plus you can frost shock and freeze them, ghost wolf to remove slows, and ghost wolf got Spirit Walk, which removes slows and increases your movement speed by 60% for 15 sec.
So try evading the toughness talent.
"but i like toughness... it has a cool name"
Oh, so get this build:
[Optimizing Survivability with toughness 5/5]




"i dont like any of those build... u are missing some important talents"
Yea, surely i was. i suggest u this build them, here i do not miss any important pvp talents Totaly full ultra mega pvp


updated: someone told me that molten armory isnt working. so i took pics of a good talent tree for pvp. here it is:


theres one talent for u to put it anywhere u want, choose wisely!



Glyphs


"Because you dont want to be so empty"






Major Glyphs

[Glyph of Feral Spirit]
[Glyph of Stoneclaw Totem]
[Glyph of Stormstrike]

You can get Glyph of Windfury instead of the SS glyph, its up to you.
With glyphed Stoneclaw totem, you want to use it a lot. For example, you are about to pvp against a retri pala, drop stoneclaw totem asap, cuz pala will probably (very probabibly) use Hammer of Justice. so if Stoneclaw is there, damage will be reduced greatly. this is basic and obviously info. its just to give u and idea about how to use it. Also, u can drop it before healing your self. i always do it.

Minor Glyphs

[Glyph of Water Walking]
[Glyph of Renewed Life]
[Glyph of Ghost Wolf]

You can replace the glyph of ghost wolf with the Water breathing glyph.







Gear

"Because you do want a Top Gear."



Gearing is obvious, get everything that says "Wrathfull". You can have some non-wrathfull off sets, just make sure you dont go below 1k resiliance. shamans need survivalbility, they die easily. So in this case, resiliance will help a lot. Keep in mind that you will be main target in arenas in almost every case.

This is your ultimate Goal. Get Full wrathfull, JC 450 and ench or eng. when trinkets proc and berserkin 2x, u will be at 8600 AP unbuffed.
Take a look at this WF crits.

Your goal is to get about 6k AP unbuffed. Its possible to get 9k or more buffed with improved Blessing of might, battle shout, bok, flasks, trinkets and ench procs, etc.


9k unbuffed WF Crit is Awesome!

I got Sharpened twillight scale trinket and 2x berserkin.

Trinkets:

Medallion of the Alliance a MUST
--------
Choose wisely!

Herkuml War Token
30 EoF (60 on lordaeron) or 20 coins. Recomended by Naitroxx

Comet's Trail
13 coins or 83 VP

Death's Choice
18 coins

Sharpened Twilight Scale
22 coins

Rings:

Ashen Band of Endless Vengeance
(rep farm)
Band of the Bone Colossus
(from lord morrowgar icc 25m)

Neck: Precious' Putrid Collar
(from Festergut)


Weapons: get TWO (2) of these

Wrathful Gladiator's Truncheon
(note that if ur an orc shaman u should get fist weapons)


Totem: This is the one for you

Totem of the Avalanche
30 EoF





Hit Rating

"You dont want to miss a Wind Shear."



Ok, now lets talk about hit rating. Hit refers to physical damage that occurs as a result of an attack made with melee or ranged weapons. Basically it reduces the chance to miss with your attack.I have made A LOT of tests with different hit rating using a draenie. i started with 0 Hit rating (HR) and obviously i missed some spell against all races excluding night elf. Them i went to 34 HR and guess what? i almost never missed an spell. i casted like 250 Lightning Bolt (LB) and i missed like 2 times.
When i started to pvp against a Night Elf things changed (a lot). I casted 100 LB and i missed 4 or more with HR on 34 using a draenie. Them i went to 72 HR and casted 100 lightning bolt and i missed 1 time. Them i went to 88 HR and casted another 150 LB or more and misssed 1 time. Obviously against Night Elf using a Draenie.
The thing is that Draenies have a racial passive (Heroic Presence) which increase the hit rating by 1%. However, Night Elfs have a racial passive (Quickness) which Reduces the chance that melee and ranged attackers will hit them by 2%. Taking that into account, Night Elf are a problem. Also, paladins, frost mages and other classes are a prob cuz they got talents that decrease chance to be hit by X amount.

With the 1% that draenies have is easier to cap HR. So if you are Draenie shaman
you should get min 80 HR, norm 100 HR or max 120 HR. Anything like 130+ is ridiculous and stupid.


IF you are NOT Draenie i suggest going with 100 HR min ~115HR norm Max 130 HR. Anything like 145+ is stupid.


IF you got 3 PvE offsets (neck and rings), its ok to have 180 hit rating. do not gem or enchant hit rating if u have 3 pve offsets.


how should i get HR, from gems or from gear? You can have it from both. Get the cloak/neck with 60 HR and [Pristine Ametrine] x3 or 4

i couldnt understand all that ****, I am Human, whats the cap that i should get?
Mmmh
get the Yankees cap
they always get tons of hits.





Gems

"Because they Glow."


Now its time for gems. We dont need to speak much in here just get this gems on cuz u must have them.

"what if i have a question?"
Gtfo them.
jk

Enhancement shamans need Attack Power like frost mages need haste.
"how much haste do frost mages need?"
why the hell are u asking question about mages in a shaman enh thread? jeez...

Shamans need AP. First priority is AP.
Priority: AP>Crit>Haste>HR>SP P.

Spell Pene should be ~80 or more. max is 124 (if i remember) but arcane mages will always be resisting ur spells by 100 or 200 more cuz they got a lot of resistance (with mage armor on). but sometimes when u try to purge their shields, it happens that armors are purged, making it even better for u.
Haste must come from off sets.... and from Black magic enchant if u have it. (its recommended to have 2 off hands weps, one enchanted with Black magic and the other enchanted with titanium chain)
Crit cap is 30%
HR cap is ~110

-

Agility cap is 0.0001748 x 10^-12% ITS A MUST ( /cheers to the one that can solve that scientific notation)
Strength cap is 0.002% like Headless horseman mount drop rate.... pretty high.
Intellect cap is ∞ - remember that if u dont have intellect, u will lose every match against anyone, guaranteed.
Spirit cap is the most important, cuz if u dont have an spirit, u are DEAD.
and AP is like...... like........like......
well i counted till infinity
two times
and couldnt find any number for AP cap
i guess is a lot.

-

Enough talking
get this on:

Yellow:[Pristine Ametrine] If u want to cap HR with gems
like if u only need 10+ HR to get cap
Get it on.

Red:[Bright Cardinal Ruby] You should have almost every slot with this one unless you got jewel crafting.

Red:[Bright Dragon's Eye] Get 3 of these and you will be with 204 more AP.

Meta: [Relentless Earthsiege Diamond] Just awesome.
If u are orc get the 18+ stm and 15% stun reduction. cuz orcs have an racial passive that reduces stuns 15%, so its a good idea to get 30% stun reduction.



"dude, you forgot Blue gems..."
i did? mmmh let me check....
oh, is there
i see it. dont u?







Professions

"Because you need a life"



It takes time but at the end they worth it. For an Enh shaman you must think of a profession that gives u attack power.

"Fishing? u get a nice buff with the foods."
hmm
Yeah. Go fishing.... or try to not get fished.

You want to become a Jewel Crafter. Them if you have time and mood for it,
delete mining and Get Enchanting.

"why do i need jewel crating and enchanting?"
cuz u can make beautiful gems and spend the whole day watching them glow. enchanting cuz u can ench ur head with intellect, making urself less dumb.

Jewel crafting has [Bright Dragon's Eye]
and enchanting has [Enchant Ring - Assault]











Weapons

"Slow is the way."

"I dont like slow weps, I want windfury to proc a lot..."

"Obama uses slow weapons."
"kool, ill stick with slow them"


Okey, ill say it once, ill say it just ONE time, get an slow wep in one hand and another slow in off hand. yea, another slow in off hand. lets recap: slow and slow. slow is for pro. slow is dah best. slow is the way. slow ma' *****. slow. sloooooowwwww.
Soulja Boy says: "slow mo' fo'. aint u gut itt, aintt quick it so slow no fo' so stfu cuz u mo' no pick slow ***** dah s*** cuz said so."
"What did he say?"
I think he wants u to get a fast wep..... try asking him.
Posted by Nocaden View Post
Use 2 slow weapons. The reasons are listed below:
1. WF is a static 20% chance to give two extra attacks with increased AP. The slower the weapon the more effect you get from that AP.
2. WF have a shared 3sec cooldown (as of Patch 2.1x), so there is a 1.5sec barrier, if your slower then 1.5sec you have a chance to WF on every second blow, if your faster then 1.5sec you will have a chance for WF every third blow. If your OH procs, your mainhand can't proc for 3 secs. If you take flurry in account 2.2speed weapons are the absolut fastes you'd ever whant to wield.
3. If you have a fast OH, it will most likley swing before your mainhand when your 3sec cooldown is up, and you have more chance to waste WF's on offhand.
4. Stormstrike every 10th second gives much more effect over time with slow weapons.
5. Shamanistic Rage and everything else that is PPM (proc per minute) works a lot better with slower weapons that have speed increase.
6. All of the above goes for both mainhand and ofhand. SLOW/SLOW is the only way to go.
You need an slow wep in both hands. Slow wep makes your Lava Lash (LL) crit higher and your Storm Strike (SS) crit even higher. so stick with 2 slow.

Notice that Frostbrand wep is WEAK with slow weps so You Dont Want to Use Frostbrand imbue for BGs and OGG/SW raids.

....but there is a slightly better option to go with in terms of vote points. Just in case some people are stressed on points and can't wait an extra 2-3 days.

Same stats, lower point total.

You may want to start with[Furious Gladiator's Truncheon]x 2
but
You want to have these [Wrathful Gladiator's Truncheon]x 2
(note that if ur an orc shaman u should get fist weapons)





Imbues

"Because we all love Windfury"



So, you may already know it, but anyways ill say it again. WindFury (WF) on your main hand and WindFury (WF) on your off hand. WF/WF. (battle grounds)


FT(flametongue) is bugged so no WF/FT. WF/WF makes more dmg. everyone uses wf/wf. lets take a look:
Posted by Fullofmana View Post
I use 2x Windfury weapon because it does more damage here on molten.
I use 2x Windfury weapon because
I use 2x Windfury weapon
I use 2x Windfury
I use 2x
"but Frostbrand is for PVP, it slows your enemies and has a talent that increases dmg"
You are talking about Frozen Power. It gives you 10% more dmg with spells and lava lash on targets afflicted with Frostbrand.
1) Frostbrand sucks with slow weps.
2) Its hard to proc FB with an slow wep.
3) its dmg is too low.
4) With SLOw/Fast weps, your Storm Strike hits are lower, your lava lash are even lower, WF crits are much more lower.
5) Frostbrand only works good with Slow/Fast, but slow/fast decreases your DPS....greatly.
6) Frostbrand works better with haste. you dont want haste stack cuz it lows your dps like hell.
7) Frostbrand slow your enemies for 8 secs and deals Frost dmg(from 400 to 700 with 5k gs, socket and enchanted, crits about ~1.1k, about 240 will be resisted (120 if non crit) most of time if you are not Spell pene capped). you dont need so much that slowing effect cuz u already got earthbinding and frostshock on your side.
8) WF crits higher (6 times tbh) than FB.
9)WF Has a 44% chance to proc(40% non-glyphed), you would like to see lots of 3k non-crit -6k crits (5k gs) rather than 600dmg to 1k crit.
10)FB is usable at 2v2 and 3's. but u must know what u are doing. Let's explain it a little bit.

Posted by Naitroxx View Post
also weapon imbues Windfury/Frostbrand. Frostbrand is very very important because it helps slow main target+ gets nice bonuses from talents/dmg,but it allows our frost shock or any other shock to be used on focus target as u know it can be super important vs some setups cause 5 second ROOT from frost shock is soo amazing anyway many enh shammies doesnt even use that trick for CC but trust me here frostbrand helps a lot and windfury woud never outperform this even its bugged here
FB is mainly used to have your main target slowed and ur focused target slowed/Ice rooted. If u are doing bg, dont go with FB. There is a trick to have the target with the FB debuff while keeping 2x Windfury wep. More info at "Trick or Trick" section.


Enchantments

"Because you need to be very enchanting to others"



Lets talk about enchantments. Its recommended that you have enchanting 450 so that you can get rings enchants. Remember that our first priority is AP, so you have to get every enchant that gives attack power. lets see which enchants give us AP.

Note: get head and shoulders ench with resil if u are not resil capped (1.2k )

Head: [Arcanum of Torment]

Shoulders: [Greater Inscription of the Axe]

Back: [Enchant Cloak - Major Agility] or [Enchant Cloak - Spell Piercing ]

Chest: [Enchant Chest - Powerful Stats]

Wrist: [Enchant Bracers - Greater Assault] or [Fur Lining - Attack Power]

Hands: [Enchant Gloves - Crusher]

Waist: [Eternal Belt Buckle]

Legs: [Icescale Leg Armor]

Boots: [Enchant Boots - Greater Assault] and if possible [Nitro Boosts]

Weapon: Main Hand: [Enchant Weapon - Berserking]

Off Hand: [Enchant Weapon - Titanium Weapon Chain] or Black Magic.



------------------------------

when you get a decent gear, u may like to know how to pvp with shamans. they are very weak if u dont use ur brain, so prepare urself. i don't want u to do something like this

Rotation

"Because its so easy"


Introduction


The hardest class to handle and know, are Enhancement shamans in both pvp and pve. They dont have a rotation nor cast sequence, they just adapt to the circumstance. i will explain you how to pvp against many classes and how to counter X spell or ability. here we go!


Basic things u will always do

1) Drop totems
2) Use Storm Strike whenever is off CD, if they are not casting a very dangerous spell.
3) Use Lava lash if SS is on CD.
4) If low health(-40%), use 5xmaelstrom to heal urself with healing wave or hex.
5)If good at health, use chain lightning or lightning bolt.
6)you have an spell called purge, use it.
7)Use Spirit Walk as soon as u use wolves!!!!!! even if u summon them for mistake, click Spirit walk icon for mistake also!
8) windshear everyone who tries to heal himself, be mean with WS.
9) if everything is on CD (SS, LL, Frostshock) use Fire nova.
10) use something called Macros to pvp.
11) use something called Powerful auras to know certain buff and debuff.
12) use Keybindings.
13) on bgs, avoid ur anti class and kill ur training dummies.
14) Laugh at ppl u've beaten, them stand in their corpse's face, shapeshift into wolf and do /sit on it many times VERY important.


Basically, pvp is simple. its always like this: u do X thing, i counter it with Y. i do Z thing, u defend with B. for example (yes, this is an example). Warrior use blade storm, rogue counters it with disarm. if warr knows this, then he wont use Blade storm and rogue wont use disarm. but if rogue is noob, he will disarm before Blade storm. so is gg for warr, good bye rogue, full bs on u.


Anti-classes


There are class that cant beat other class... its almost impossible. for example fire mage vs mm hunter, huntard wins. shadow priest vs hunter, priest wins. sub rogue vs mage, sub wins. uh dk vs many, uh dk wins. enh shaman vs any caster, enh wins.

There are class that will be 50-50 if they both got same skills. like for example, feral dudu vs enh shaman, 50-50. ele shaman vs enh shaman, 50-50. frost mage vs ele shaman, 50-50. rogue vs warr, 50-50. dk vs warr, 50-50. and so on.




You would like to know ur anti-class as enhancement shaman. here u go

-WArriors (i hate warrs >.< )
-Rouges (damn rogues)
-SKILLED bm hunters (the hell, that pet is bugged! insane dmg)
-uh dk (kinda)

Because u are so lucky, first 2 classes are the most played at pvp, meaning, u will face them a lot. so get ready to get owned like a indefensive child. and they do it so easy.
if u are normal skilled and u face a dk, u will lose. u most know them completly to do smthg good against them.


Know your training dummies

-priests (sorry dp, no foofoo for u)
-Mages (ur mage might work with someone else, not me, teehee)
-Warlocks (u dont scare me)
-PALADINS, oh boy! HOLY MOTHER F***ING FLYING FECES, R.E.T.ARDINGS


now, ur 50-50 are.....
-DUDU
-Ele shamans


"why is that like that?"
Son, God made it like that. Don't question God.
"ok, Father"

honeydew

if u are doing a bg, and u see a lonely warr and a lonely pala, dont be stupid and attack the warr. DO WHAT IS EASY FIRST. kill the pala, ALWAYS. every time u see a shield around someone, Purge it and kill him. the only classes that uses shields are priest mages and warlocks , and u are GREAT against them.


In all around, u do great against ur dummies, only if u are normal skilled. so if u lose against any dummies, it means u need to know more that class and to use more some spells and specific totems. totems are the key to win against almost everyone.


SkiLLz

There are classes that requires A LOT of skill to play it OK, not great but OK. like for example, a shadow priest requires like NO SKILLS. so if u are fighting an spriest, u playing as ele shaman, u will get ur *** wooped like if u are nothing. and spriest do not do almost anything. BUT, if the shaman is SKILLED and Priest is not skilled (they do not require it) ele shaman wins. the ele shaman must do MANY thing to counter ALMOST everything. yes, almost everything. example, if spriest use Devouring Plague, ele shaman use cleanse totem, making dp USELESS, and dp is shadow priest main spell. if spriest uses fear, tremor totem it, making fear useless. if spreist use vampiric touch, windshear it. if it uses it again, thunderstorm. making spriest losing a lot of time without even touching the shaman. if spriest uses mindblast, grounding totem. making mindblast get on cd. and sooooooo on.



Pure PVP

"Time to kick ***"



Warlock


Warlocks always start like this : Shadow fury>Fear>Immolate>Incinerate>Raping bolt

If u get stunned with ShadowFury (they always will stun u), trinket it and use Windshear on their next cast ASAP, cuz as soon as they stunn u with SF, they will start casting Fear.
Once fear is avoided, get close to him,drop a tremor totem, grounding, and kill him with no mercy.

When dpsing on him, dont let him use Howl of Terror, cuz it makes ur grounding totem fade, while u getting feared! so try to Windshear it.

Most important thing when pvping a lock is to not get feared and to not get hit with chaos bolt.
Also, whenever u see a black shield around them (Nether Protection) Purge it! its very important to remove that black weird shield. purge them till that shield is removed, them, kick their ***!

Windshear as much as u can, whenever they are casting an spell. DONT LET CHAOS BOLT HIT YOU BRO OR YOU ARE DEAD. Try to use gruounding totem rather than windshearing it because Chaos bolt gets on cd.

If your health is good, and u got 5 maelstrom, try instant hexing them when they start casting to interupt or when they are low health.

if they manage to fear you, try to Trinket it quickly and use windshear FAST. them frost shock so to freeze them, and Stormstrike, etc, etc.

Totems:
Fire resistance
Grounding (must be with a keybind, any key close to ur fingers)
Stoneclaw (if he gets u when u are afk or smthg, just drop it to get the shield buff and quickly drop tremor)
Tremor (make sure u have a keybind with this totem, cuz u will need to drop it very fast)
Searing totem ( to proc their Nether protection, so that the shield reduce fire dmg... and u want that )

This is a must win, u cant lose against a warlock unless he fisrt attack (like get u when u are pvping with someone else or if u are afk).
When u get all this automatic in ur mind, it will be a joke to fight against warlocks. (by automatic i mean that whenever u are stunned use trink, windshear their fears, etc).



Shadow Priest

Devouring Plague


"A shadow priest with no DP, is not a shadow priest."

IF Devouring Priest
, You want to get tremor totem quickly! Remember, Its an instant Fear (Psychic Scream) and you dont want to get Feared (even thou they are not scary, most spriest are cute girls).

Devouring plague is useless because u got

Also, Do (unmacroed, if they are not casting) Purge them, to remove Power word: shield and stamina buff (purge remove 2 buffs).
Never miss to Windshear Vampiric touch.

Drop cleansing totem, tremor. If they cast any healing effect, obviously, windshear and purge renew.

When they use dispersion, (u may be close to victory), purge them a lot, Re drop totems, heal urself, and frost shock just before dispersion ends. make sure u get close to them before dispersion ends , and drop tremor to prevent Psychic scream again.

Make sure u use stoneclaw's shield, try dropping stoneclaw them drop tremor. if u are close to him, be careful, do it very fast, keep tremor totem up 99% of the time....24/7....12/12......365/365.

Totems:
Cleansing (removes Devouring Plague, very important)
Grounding (must be with a keybind, any key close to ur fingers, use it against Vampiric touch)
Stoneclaw (if he gets u when u are afk or smthg, just drop it to get the shield buff and quickly drop tremor)
Tremor (make sure u have a keybind with this totem, cuz u will need to drop it very fast)
Searing totem

Every caster should call u Master, Hokage and Sensei. You just need to know them, what they are thinking and what they will think. (yes, this is possible and easy)




Maegs


"Feelme"

Frost mage: drop frost resistance, grounding totem on their 2nd Polymorph(first should be windsheared) and Windshear their third polymorph. If they start casting Frostbolt and WS is on CD, drop EArth binding totem close to them,
if u are far, get into Ghost wolf form quickly and when Frostbolt is about to hit u, u may want to....JUMP.

"why jump?"
cuz u want frostbolt to hit u in ur balls.

You need to jump towards the target before getting hit cuz you cant be frozen in air(mages have a probability to freeze u with frostbolt), you will get frozen when u land, so when u land u will be right in front of that mo' fo' dude. when u jump, drop earthbinding totem in the air (yes, very fast, and Purge them to remove shields if they have) and attack them with SS quickly and dps on.
If they use Ice Block,
get ready ur self, first drop totems, get behind them and heal ur self if low health.
why behind? so that they do not Counterspell on u, preventing u from healing and stuff.
when they Blink, Frost shock Asap. to froze them for a long good 5 secs.
If they start getting invisible, flame shock.

if they use Mirror image, drop stoneclaw to aggro their clones and if u have problems finding the real mage, Focus him before the fight start (if 1v1 or arena).

Dont let them use Evocation, u dont want them full healed again. they may try to freeze u, mirror mage, blink, hide behind smthg and use evocation. dont let it happen.

Earthbinding totem is the most important thing to keep in mind. With earthbinding, u get close to him faster, his/her Dmg is reduced(they hit harder on snared targets) and he is always snared!

Fire mage:
Drop fire resistance! very important. Also dont forget to use Stoneclaw for defense(just to get shield buff) and earth binding to keep you out of snares from Frostfire bolt and to keep him snared.

You want to watch when Hot streak Procs, get any adds that help you and use grounding totem against it. u dont want to be 10k'ed instantly. Fire mage are easier than frost mages so, not much to say here. they are similar in some ways. just make sure u keep that fire mage good snared with frostshock / eartbinding cuz they run like hell. stop fire balls/ffb and Pyroblast with Windshear. if possible, purge their Hot streak (instant pyro) and their blazing speed.


Arcane mage:
Drop grounding Asap. they have instant poly, which is dangerous, so drop ground BEFORE they poly u.
if they manage to poly u, trinket it, and use windshear if they are casting anything, them drop grounding totem. they will use Slow on you, always. use earthbing to remove it. Make sure to keep them flame shocked, cuz they can VANISH like rogues, and for 30 secs if glyphed, and they can eat or use evocation behind something. You dont Want this To Happen.

use Spirit Wolves when he/she is at ~35% health or so. use hero when they use Ice block and start healing! they get scared when u turn big, so they will stay ice blocked and wait for ur heroism to fade(also waiting for Cds like Frost nova)
use stoneclaw when they mirror mage. (more info read frost mage)
Use windshear against their Arcane blast and polymorphs.

IF possible, (not recommended, try it if he is not seeing u) try purging their Presence of Mind (which makes them get instant spell).

things to keep in mind.
they will always keep u slowed
they have instant invisibility
they can instant sheep
Their rotation is like this: Instant poly, Arcane blast x4, arcane barrage, arcane missiles.
they are not hard to beat if u use Earthbind totem.
arcane missiles cant be LoS

Shaman

"You will love this epic mind battle!"


Elemental Shamans:
You have the advantage be cause he is a caster. for an ele shaman to beat you, He/she must be almost pro. You are going to play some mind games, so analyze him/her as much as possible.
Drop earth binding so to remove snares , and place grounding totem when they cast Lava Burst! so that it gets on cd and them you can Windshear their hex. also drop fire resistance and totem stoneclaw.

Remember: shamans got like 5 types of spell interrupts, and instant. just u need to know when and how to use them.
they are very easy if u stop Lava burst, trinket hex and windshear their heals.
Things to keep in mind:
They got Windshear and totems like Grounding totem and Earthbinding (better than yourscuz it roots u). They interut u while stunned with Thunderstorm, and knock you back 20 yards, but its a 35(glyphed)CD.
If you are quick enough, Try attacking their grounding totem and them Windshear quickly (they will be casting an spell). you dont want that grounding totem Block your WS. better risk a Shock Spell (any) on it.

If the ele shaman is kinda skilled, HE Will Trick You. You dont Want To be Fooled. s-he will do this:
Lava burst - after 0.5 sec- move. Stopping their cast and making you WASTE WS. Remember: You are Not DUMB, You Will Not Fell for it.
Take every Ele shaman as if they wont do it. However If they do it and trick you, You are not Falling again. Wait for the their cast bar to be in like 75% and use WS. dont wait to long if your Latency is Higher than 200ms, they will get you before you get them.

Enhancement shamans: thats ur worst anti class. u will lose so fast that u will hate ur life. if u see one, Rrrrrruu.... ohh, wait, u will die just by seeing them. oh well, good luck vs enh.


Rogue

"They are a problem"


if against rogue.... you are probably dead if you dont play like a pro. rogues will keep you stunned for like then whole battle. drop Stoneclaw, Nature resistance and Magma totem. try to refresh magma totem before it fades. Dont use any other fire totems, stick with magma against rogue/fdruids. they will likely cheap shot (if they dont use Flameshock asap so that they dont do -Blind-run-restealth-) wait 2 secs and if they use kidney blow, You Want to Trinket Kidney Blow As Soon As Possible. You need power auras to know when u get kidney blow, and u need the trinket keybinded.

If they fail at first cheap shot and get unstealth, They Will Use vanish, You dont want this To happen so do flame shock quickly. They Will Use Blind, You dont want this to happen so do use your trinket if possible. They Will Gouge you and Sprint to run away and Restealth. You Dont Want this To happen. so flame shock them BEFORE they use cloak of shadow. if u success, u won.

they suck at pvp ing without using stealth and stuff. make sure u use Fire Nova when they use Disarm on u. Make sure you use stoneclaw when it gets off CD . make sure you heal ur self (healing wave) when Maeltrom is with 5 stacks. make sure u use spirit wolves when u get ~40% health. make sure u use flame shock every time it disipates from them. Make sure to use Bash (Spirit wolves) when he stuns you for the second time with kidney blow(first should be trinketed) , stun him when he stuns u. make sure to use Shamanistic rage when u are stunned. make sure to make sure that u are sure. Dont forget to always have magma on.



Warriors


"Run for ur life!"


Drop stone claw, healing totem, searing and windfury.
that will be a very nice sword fight, but they have a greater dmg than urs, so u dont want to always be sword fighting with him. You want warrior close to you but not too close. you dont want him to use Charge, so always get close to them, like 4 to 6 yards. You will need FB here cuz u will kite them a lot... like for the whole fight.
What u should do is this: drop earthbind totem(after u drop stoneclaw, to get the shield from it) Go and hit them with SS and move away. move like ~4 or ~5 yards away from him. Don't get too far cuz at 8 yards they can Charge u. always watch if they try to run, don't let them run! Be in the kite range always. wait for SS to be ready before getting close to them. You will use a lot of Shocks here and fire novas.

When They use the spinning thing (Bladestorm) RUN. Use Ghost wolves and use Spirit Walk to remove any impairing movement effect and Run faster. they will likely Bladestorm and do a Charge to you, but its ok, use shamanistic rage, drop stoneclaw, and (by now ur health maybe in like 40%)heal yourself if u got 5xML and kite again..

Also, remember that Mortal Strike reduces all ur heals 50%!!! very important! Heal urself if u don't have that debuff, but if u have it, u better hex him or do smthg else, but don't heal with that debuff on u!!!



Paladins

"aka, Ret.ardins"


Drop Grounding totem quickly, before they use hammer of justice. Use Shamanistic rage BEFORE they stun you (or when u see wings on them). Why? cuz they start with a very good dmg... and its nice to reduce that dmg 30%, isnt it?
You may want to use this spell:

Purge



"Because palas love to be purged"


tip for 1v1: When SS and LL are on cd, u can summon wolves and use spirit walk, run away while purging and redrop totems when u are far from him (like 30 yards or 40 yards) and heal urself.

Try purging their Blessing of Might/Blessing Of Kings, Art of War, and many others. Against palas, this is your main spell. Also, they do this : Repentance+Heal (or hammer of justice+ heal). Use trinket when they do that and WS their heal. if they stunned you at first, that means their hammer of justice is on CD, so they will use Repentance them heal. This is the easiest wow fight just because of purge and

WindShear




Totems:
Stoneclaw
Earthbinding (to run and heal urself)
Searing totem
Grounding totem
Mana spring totem



Death Knights

"uh, wtf"


you are ok, as long as its not unholy. they dont have very dangerous attacks unlike warrs, just be careful with silence, use grounding totem and stoneclaw before healing urself, and Heal ur self when you get maelstrom x5. If their Death grip is on cd, and their Strangulate is on CD also, try hexing them without using the 5x maelstrom, just after a ML heal so to get another heal. Also, dont forget to drop Cleansing totem against Unholy, VERY IMPORTANT.

when healing without ml, fake cast their Mind Freeze

Death Coil is a dangerous spell. it prevents any diseases on you from being dispelled for 10 secs(unholy blight). So try to drop Grounding totem before they use it on u. its 30 range so dont wait too much to drop grounding totem. they will spam Death Coil , so dont be pissed if u cant dispel their diseases.

They WILL (if they arent uh) Remove Cleansing totem As soon as they can. You love your cleansing totem, RESS HIM! if they kill your totem just drop another. they will also try killing your grounding and earthbinding totem, but thats ok, just drop them again when they get off CD.

Blood DK may use this when they want to get a big heal
Vampiric Blood
Mark of Blood
Rune Tap
Death strike
You Want To Stop Vampiric Blood. Purge VB so that their healing is decreased.


Hunter

"aka, huntarded"


Stay VERY close to them. Use grounding totem to prevent their traps, Windshear their Steady shot, and keep ur Earthbinding totem close to them and to yourself. also, they can Silence you for 3 secs, so drop a grounding totem and stoneclaw before healing yourself.

drop Cleansing totem so to remove those tedious stings (viper sting, serpent sting, Wyvern sting and Scorpid sting). if you got trapped in an iceblock, trinket it and get close to them.


Things to keep in mind:
Ur heals will always be 50% less, cuz of aimed shot.
They Want to Be far from you.
They HATE being Close to people. They think its gay.
You dont want to get silenced.
Cleanse totem.
Earthbinding Totem.
Grounding totem.
Searing totem.
Drop totems before getting silenced.
Ghost wolf
Spirit Walk.
HEX



Beast Mastery:
You are in trouble. as soon as u see a big red pet, RUN. use shamanistic rage, stoneclaw, drop grounding and use spirit wolves and stun their pet (so nice that spirit wolves always attack pets) and use Spirit walk and get away from that pet.

when pet gets normal size (bestial wrath on cd), kill the hunter and forget about pet. u may have a hard time killing pet because pet cower (reduce dmg 40%) and Heart of the Phoenix (instant full health ress). so, its a bad idea to try to kill pet, better kill hunter and pet will dissipate automatically.

Pro hunter is hard. Bm pro hunters are harder. Use blood lust+ spirit wolf+ spirit walk and drop Earthbinding totem close to them. You must be super fast and always get close to them. if they use the thing that parries everything for 5 secs, i just attack the other partner to get ML proc again. when hunter is out of Deterrence, morph him into a Frog XD and continue attacking him while being very close to him..... always slowing him with earthbinding.

Healz

"CC the warr kill pala. if healer, ffffffuuuuuuuuu"
when it is a pro hunter + healer, kill the healer, cc huntard.



if healer is dudu, u win.
purge his hots and he is lost
purge his hots and he is lost
purge his hots and he is lost

The only problem may be latency is dudu got haste and starts casting Nourish. thats a quick heal, as soon as u see ANY type of cast, Windshear it!


if healer is disc pri,
purge her shield and tremor her fear
purge her shield and tremor her fear
purge her shield and tremor her fear

purge renew, power word: shield and windshear flash heal or greater heal.
when s-he cast penance, try to windshear it as fast as possible. its chaneled.

if shaman healz,
Keep him slow and u are good to go
Keep him slow and u are good to go
Keep him slow and u are good to go

shamans main healing spell is the shower thingy, riptide. just purge whenever he takes a shower. also, makesure u use a shock spell before windshear, cuz they always drop grounding totem before casting healz. and they do lots of fake casts. purge Bloodlust. purge everything.


if pala healer,
force him to bubble early and he will be angry
force him to bubble early and he will be angry
force him to bubble early and he will be angry

go pala. if he bubbles, change to hunter, when he gets out of bubble, kill pala. try to use hex early, so that when pala use bubble, u get hex off cd. hex the pala when low health.



Druids


"awesome battle! i'm lovin' it!"




Feral: Drop magma totem and stoneclaw. just dont let them heal themself and u are good to go. they can instant CC u (cyclone+ Predatory Strikes) . You dont Want this To Happen. Drop grounding totem just after u trinket their first stun. it should be protecting you for 45 sec so u can leave it there with no worries. if they cast the second cc, windshear it and cast hex right after windshear, so that they do not shapeshift. remember, thats ur ONLY oportunity to hex, when they try to cc u and heal themself.
if they heal over time (Rejuvenation), purge. Don't let them heal and you are good.

Some fdudus like to use nature's grasp(makes u get rooted), run, heal or cc. Dont let this happen! use purge to prevent the root and Windshear their CC or heal, purge their hots asap!

Things to keep in mind:
Searing totem.
Grounding totem.
Stoneclaw Totem. (just for shield, switch to eathbinding asap)
You cant hex them, they are already hexed.
You dont want them to get behind you.
Their rotation is like this:
Prowl-Pounce-Rake-Mangle-*Behind the target* Shred-Shred- Maim/ Rip (DoT)- *Shred-shred-rake-shred-MAIM (stun).
You Want to dps with him. Just try to make something better than that rotation, and you are good. just do everything that is off CD.

Note: this and vs ele are the best battles u will have! its a 50-50, no anti! XD

These are spells ranks, the higher the better.
Windfury Weapon 10/10
StormStrike 10/10
Lava lash 8/10
Frost Shock 7/10 (you want to keep them slow, so that they dont get your back)
Earthshock 4/10
Lightning shield 6/10 (keep refreshing it a lot, works for rogues also)
Fire Nova (if SS and LL are on CD) 7/10
Lightning Bolt 7/10
Chain Lightning 7/10 (if have mana and if there are more enemies around)
Windshear (if he is casting a Cyclone) 11/10


Moonkin: try to guess where will they appear, keep moving around, cuz what they want to do is to appear behind u, root u and cast Star Fire. You Dont want this to Happen. keep grounding totem on and earthbinding while they are invisible, and when they appear, Windshear their next spell. They will use nature's grasp, which makes u get rooted and unable to move, so you have 2 options: #1 is purge till you get it off them and #2 use up your pets to remove it (it has 3 charges), you got a various amount of pets, elemental, dragons, walking dead and even robots! . Always Keep Nature Resistance Totem to prevent dmg from their insect swarm ability. They will try to run alot and/or spam Moonfire, keep them Frost shocked.


Things to keep in mind:
They are immune to hex or poly.
They cant heal while in moonkin form, so when they unform, they will heal themself.
Starfall is dangerous, use shamanistic rage when they cast use it asap! A lot of dmg is reduced here!
Nature Resistance totem.(air totem, so use it when grounding is on cd)
Searing totem.
Grounding totem when off CD. (air)
Earthbinding totem.
they are not hard but dont take it easy.





Macros


"Some will hate them"




Focus hex

#showtooltip hex
/cast [target=focus] hex
This macro is used if u are doing 2v2 and you and your partner are attacking one target and the other is about to heal your main target, u use these macro. Obviously you need to Focus it before match begins.it will hex the focused target without untargeting your main target.



Purge+Windshear

#showtooltip wind shear
/startattack
/cast wind shear
/cast purge
Posted by l3g10nw View Post

that purge macro is to be used in some occasions, not always. like if an ur in arena and ur focused target cast vampiric touch, u can stop it and also purge his shield.
that macro is not to be used always, just with a caster as focused target. and sometimes.

Purge+Windshear Focused

#showtooltip wind shear
/cast [target=focus] wind shear
/cast [target=focus] purge
The focused version of windshear+purge. you use this macros when your focused target is about to cast a dangerous spell (fear, chaost bolt, Lava burst, pyro, poly, hex or heal).


Feral Spirits for Draeneis

#showtooltip Feral Spirit
/cast Gift of the Naaru(Racial)
/cast Feral Spirit
/petattack

Very useful macro to heal you quickly. Gift of the Naaru doesnt have GCD, so is good to macro it with something. because you use feral spirits when targets is low health or when u are low health, is a good macro.
also this macro attacks the target u use it on, so no more wolves attacking pets.


Frost Shock

#showtooltip Frost shock
/startattack
/cast frost shock
Spells doesnt activate white attack. So you need to macro it.

Flame Shock
#showtooltip Flame shock
/startattack
/cast flame shock


StormLash Strike
#showtooltip
/startattack
/castsequence reset=8/target Stormstrike, Lava Lash
you have to click this one, after global cooldown click it again, first it will cast SS, nex LL, it will reset itself after 8sec (imp stormstrike) and after 8sec you can start over again with SS>LL, when you change targets macro also will reset

For playing vs classes with fear
Posted by Pasharamus View Post
Another three macros I think can be useful for playing vs classes with fear and casters

this one can be just pressed twice without thinking. Gives shield, end of story

#showtooltip Stoneclaw Totem
/castsequence reset=21/cast Stoneclaw Totem, Tremor Totem

This one for playing vs lock for example. When they slow u with conflagrate incinirate or sth just press this twice to remove slow and place tremor again

#showtooltip Earthbind Totem
/castsequence reset=10.5/cast Earthbind Totem, Tremor Totem
Posted by Pasharamus View Post
and also for playing vs casters

#showtooltip Grounding Totem
/castsequence reset=13/cast Grounding Totem, Windfury Totem

KeyBindings


"Because non-clicking is for Pros"





Okey, so to be a very good pvp player, you need keybindings. i had like 4 years on wow without using keybindings and i always had a lot of problems like, looking at whats happening and looking at the action bar, losing time when abilities are off GCD, missing interrupts cuz it was too much for me to click counter spell before a lock cast Fear, etc.
When i started to play with keybinds, i really liked it. i can use counter spell so fast that i feel like cheating. i can use iceblock (as my main, a fire mage) and cancel it REAL fast to evade spells like lava burst, etc.

So, keybinding is the way to Pro. Here is an example about some keybinds.



You can use scroll Up, Scroll Down and middle mouse bottom. Here is my list of keybindings, to give you an idea.

You need to play like this: Walk forward with W, strafe with A, D and Turn left or right holding mouse right click. we need to put awesome spells on the remaining keys ( Q, E ,S).
F: Windshear
E: StormStrike,Lava lash (macroed)
Q: Frost Shock
S: StoneClaw
R: Tremor totem
G: Magma totem
Z: Shamanistic Rage
x: Nature resistance totem
C: Grounding Totem
T: Hex
1: Lighting bolt
2: Ghost wolf
3: PVP trinket


Caps: Healing Wave
Shift+F: Focused Windshear
Shift+T: Focused hex
Shift+S: Earthbinding totem
Shift+C: Focused Purge
Shift+R: Feral Spirits+Gift of the naaru (macroed)
Shift +E: Focused purge (to remove focused target dangerous auras/buff like pala buble or Mages shields)
Shift+Q: Focused Frost shock (to root ur focused target while keeping the main target slowed with FB)Q

Scroll Down: lightning shield
Scroll up: water shield
Mouse middle bottom: HERO/BloodLust
and so on... just make sure you can hit the key effectively and quick. And convince yourself that this is not hard to learn, You can memorize the whole keyboard including the use of shift and Alt. NO, im not jk or anything, human brain is ftw. You need to give a keybind and memorize Every Shaman Spell.

i have memorized more than 100 Rubik's Cube patterns. and believe me, they are hard.
here is an example of 2 patterns.
R U') (R' U) (Lw U) (F U') (R' F') (R U' R U) (Lw' U R')
x' (R U') (R' D) (R U R') Uw'2 (R' U) (R D) (R' U' R)
i know them like my name. so its not impossible or hard to learn every keybind for 4 different classes. Yes, if you have other classes, Give Them Keybinds! that would be like 150 keys in your mind, pretty awesome.

"but how do i put keybinds to certain bottoms in the action bar?"
ESC> Keybindings> scroll down till Action Bar functions




When you get there, click on the number you want to change. Them it will ask you to set your binding, there you click the desired key.
Scroll down till Multi Action Bar and change those too.




Power Auras


"Because we want to be Over Powered"



Download It Here


This section is about how to use power auras (add on). With power auras u can do many things, like know when u are got maelstrom x5 with a sound or a desired image, know when u got an x debuff/buff, and so on.

I will explain how to set up Maelstrom so that when u got 5x maelstrom, it shows an image on screen and that it plays a sound.

My friend's shaman.




Click on "New" and put everything like that. Click on new again and put everything like the first one but in "Stacks" instead of >0 u will put >1

Close that window Click on "New" again and put everything like the first one but in "Stacks" instead of >0 u will put >2


Close that window Click on "New" again and put everything like the first one but in "Stacks" instead of >0 u will put >3

"New" again and put everything like the first one but in "Stacks" instead of >0 u will put =5 Also, u will check "WoW Textures" and choose texture 54. Move that texture down (set position Y like mine) and make the texture wide (Deformation: 1.42)

To play sound when ML is x5, just go to the "sound" tab and where it says starting sound (or smthg like that) click it and look for "thunder" or "fireball"

Now for Debuff

Stacks: =1
Check: Use own texture
Activation by: Debuff


ignore chat window plz


Trick or Trick


"Because noobs are fooled easily"




Tricking ppl is easy. 90%+ of ppl that play wow do not use tricks or do mind games. In this section ill talk about some tricks and tips to improve your pvp skills.

Spell Faking

when playing against a healer, you will try to interupt their heals with any interupting spell/ability. if the healer is wise, he will fool u. How? Simple, he will just start casting a big heal, and after 0.5 secs, cancel it.

"stupid healer, canceling his own heals... better for me"

When you use an interupt ability/spell on someone that is not casting, it does nothing, meaning, you just got trolled loled.
If you are about to heal, try to cancel your own heal after ~0.5 secs, them heal ur self for real.
Note that you aren't specting someone to trick u with canceling their own spells, cuz almost noone do that. if you are dueling against someone 1v1, and he does it to u 1 time, u know that he will do it a second time, so be ready.


Hide and Seek

When dueling against a Spriest, you will see that he will do this; DoTs, run, hide behind something. When dueling against mages, you will see that they will do this: CC, run, hide behind something, heal themself (evocation). When playing against many casters, they will always try to hide when they got cds, need heal, etc.

You are intelligent, you will hide when u need to also. If there is a tree nearby (very very near), and someone is casting something harmful, u will hide instead of WS. When u sucesfuly evade his cast, Ghost wolf, run to him, and WS their next cast. This should be done quickly.
you can also do this to heal yourself; Frost shock (15yards away from him), Ghostwolve, hide, set totems (grounding and stoneclaw) and heal your self.

You wont hide too much, just sometimes in certain ocations. Spriest and Affliction warlocks can benefit from this a lot, but you dont, you need to be close to every class (except warrs).


Shaman tank

Use a shield against a rogue. What you will do is to set up a macro so that u can equip the shield and the off hand wep quickly. when rogue get invisible, equip the shield, set nature resistance totem and stoneclaw.. As soon as he appears, you will use shamanistic rage. his dmg will be reduced insanely a lot. when you trinket out Kidney shot, equip your off hand quick, Flameshock and attack him. there he wont get invi and you wont use shield again.



Quadruple Imbue: WF/WF/FB/FB


Never delete your furious weps, keep them. you will use them for some tricks, like this one.
What you will do is this; imbue your 2 weps with WF and third and fourth wep with FB. Get on x2 Wf weps and macro the third and fourth wep and set a keybind to it, so that u can switch your weps very fast. When you see the tornado (when WF procs) replace your 2x Wf wep with FB wep. You have to do this quickly cuz wf ICD (internal cooldown) is 3 secs, so WF is USELESS when it is on CD (basically, everything is). So, you will use that time to switch to FB and try to proc FB. this seems to be hard, but its not. you will see that it just takes 2 clicks (if clicking) and some attention to what you are doing, nothing else.


4 Wep enchants


In Addition, You may want to add some ench to those weps. Its a good idea to get Black magic and a second Berserking on those weps, so that when u replace them, something good happens..., Black M, 3x berserking, sweeeeeeeeet.

"thats cheating, nab"

yeah, im cheating on you, my love.


Improved Windfury


Posted by Naitroxx View Post
ALso there was trick for max procing windfury, u need shockandawe addon which shows your windfury ICD. So first u click autoatack if WF proc dont use SS after 3 sec use SS so it sums with autoattack and gives high chance to proc windfury, then u keep watching windfury ICD so u not use stormstrike when WF is on ICD. but in practice its hard to do and usally not really worth. but sometimes when target is nicely purged with this sutff i had chain proced 4 or more windfuries every 3 sec in a row (OFcourse its more luck based but still i beleave that whing helped here alot )

"So long, my love."





This section will talk about 2H Weapons and how to hit like a truck.

Note: This is just for BGs, not for arenas. Don't try this if u are low / totally unskilled. You have been warned.


Note 2: For WF crits, PVE gear>pvp gear. i have full pvp gear.


Note 3: WF somtimes last too much to proc IF u are full pvp. You need Haste to proc WF fast. Remember: HASTE.

Note 4: On PVE gear you will make MUCH MORE HIGHER Crits. Its hard to one shot somone with PVPgear , PVP its NOT RECOMENDED for this.



Why 2h weapons for an enh shaman? isnt it bad? how will u do Lava lash? how will ML proc with a 2h wep?

First of all, 2H wep is a bad deal for arenas, u will get pwned a lot. Its good to use 2h weapons on BGs, raid to Org and maybe 1v1 for fun. Also, you wont hit too hard on plate if u dont have good Armor penetration.

The good part about 2h wep is Windfury. You will love every time windfury procs. let's take a look at it:

Unbuffed

Wep: Wrathfull Gladiator's Bonegrinder

Sweet, isnt it? here i made 2 wf crits, look closely on the combat window. that was just WF, nothing else.


Here is what you need to hit like a truck:



Deathbringer's Will
Sharpened Twilight Scale
Must have this if you want to do high dmg on plates. If you cant afford this (e.g. you are full pvp and dont want to buy them) just don't get it, but you wont hit very hard on plates.


Cryptmaker
for the 2h wep, PVE is great! this wep gives you Arp, and a lot. Try getting a similar one if you cant afford to get this one.... or just get non-heroic one.

this one is also great! Warmace of Menethil
it gives u Crit and Haste. remember u need lots of haste!

Gem for arp if you dont have 450 arp. rest jus get attack power. arp works very good for plates.


I'm using CryptMaker there, NON HEROIC. if one of u guyz can get heroic version, awesome then! Wrathful 2h its a nice deal, but its too expensive, lots of arena points, better donate for CM heroic.
Hit rating is at 200 cuz cryptmaker gives you 95 hit rating. you shouldnt worry about hit rating IF you are using a PVE wep that has HR.





There i got Black magic enchant, but you can get Berserking ench.
Note that i only have 2 arp gems, nothing else. Dont use big gems on weapons cuz you will be Switching between fast and slow weps, let me explain this now, i think we are good to move on.

Ok, so the first thing u need to know is that with 2h wep u cant use Lava lash. so we are going to have to macro and off hand. i know that lava lash doesnt make a good dmg but at least u can slow ur prey, and also proc ML, trinkets, and most important: Proc Berserking.

yeah, you can have 3 enchs, one on the 2h, another on main hand and last one on off hand. ill try to see if triple berserking procs XD

so what you willl do is , get close to our costumer, show him what u got till WF procs, and them immediately swicht to ur 2 weps. then without losing time make a lava lash then shock spell and switch to ur 2h wep again, remember WF ICD is 3 secs, so u have 3 secs to do Whatever u want with x2 weapons.


this is what u will mainly do:

STormStrike (macroed, look down)
IF Windfury procs, change to x2 weps for 3 secs, them quickly switch back to ur 2h.
Lava lash (while WF is on ICD)
Frost shock
wait for cds...KITE! be checking ur Cryptmaker's white CD..



Macros


Stormstrike

/startattack
/cast stormstrike


equip x2 weps


/equip Wrathful Gladiator's Truncheon
/equip Wrathful Gladiator's Punisher

Frost shock

/startattack
/cast frostshock
Those are the most necessary for 2h, look at macro section if u want more macros.

No.
Go WF/WF. You dont need to slow your enemies more, you have Frost shock And Earthbinding Totem. Plus frostband Dps Sucks like hell.
Yeah but frostbrand gives 10% dmg to lightning bolt and LL and shocks, could this increase possibly be a reason to FB OH?

NO.
Let me ask to others to see what they say:

Use 2 slow weapons. The reasons are listed below:
1. WF is a static 20% chance to give two extra attacks with increased AP. The slower the weapon the more effect you get from that AP.
2. WF have a shared 3sec cooldown (as of Patch 2.1x), so there is a 1.5sec barrier, if your slower then 1.5sec you have a chance to WF on every second blow, if your faster then 1.5sec you will have a chance for WF every third blow. If your OH procs, your mainhand can't proc for 3 secs. If you take flurry in account 2.2speed weapons are the absolut fastes you'd ever whant to wield.
3. If you have a fast OH, it will most likley swing before your mainhand when your 3sec cooldown is up, and you have more chance to waste WF's on ofhand.
FT(flametongue) is bugged so no more WF/FT. WF/WF makes more dmg. everyone uses wf/wf. lets take a look:

I use 2x Windfury weapon because it does more damage here on molten.
I use 2x Windfury weapon because
I use 2x Windfury weapon
I use 2x Windfury
I use 2x
Flametongue is bugged, plus FT is weak with fast weps. Frostbrand is also weak with slow weps. Plus the slow effect is useless cuz you will keep him slowed and freezed with Frost Shock.

Stick with two (2) Windfury Wep!
EDTITED: For BGs.

Your "quotes" are from a PVE thread, Im asking is frostbrand viable due to frozen power, and so far all you have said is FB sucks, without any reasons other than WF/WF does more dmg. But thats PVE. I didnt mention FT at all, so i have no idea why you are. Im 99% sure enhancment pvp needs FB OH

Frostbrand Weapon
Instant Cast
247 mana
Imbue the shaman weapon with frost. Each hit has a chance of causing 530 additional Frost damage and slowing the target's movement speed by 50% for 8 seconds.
Frostshock
387 mana 30 yd range
Instant Cast 5 sec cooldown
Instantly shocks the target with Frost, causing 842 to 891 Frost damage and slowing the target's movement speed by 50% for 8 sec.
Windfury Weapon
288 mana
Instant
Imbue the Shaman's weapon with wind. Each hit has a 20% chance of dealing additional damage equal to two extra attacks with 1250 extra attack power.
Mate, ill tell you again, go WF/WF, you do more damage and the enemy stay slowed always. I am not trying to be mean or rude but frostbrand sucks. just read what it does, it only deals 530 dmg and not on every hit. Frost shock slowing and Frostbrand slowing do not stack, making FB useless. If you are thinking about Frozen talent, read it again, its not big deal.

Frozen Power
2/2
Increases the damage done by your Lightning Bolt, Chain Lightning, Lava Lash, and Shock spells by 10% on targets afflicted by your Frostbrand Attack effect, and your Frost Shock has a 100% chance to root the target in ice for 5 sec. when used on targets at or further than 15 yards from you.

I dueled a pala (higher GS) with 2x Frostbrand Weapon. i wanted to see when it dmg, and guess what, it didnt came up. Pala killed me and said GG, while i was saying "FB sucks". Them i dueled a DK (higher Gs) and itdid proc one time, them i did used earthshock and didnt get unusual amount of dmg. them a hunter with 2x frost shock and it did proc one time (when i managed to catch him) but after that i couldnt get any other. (im using 2x slow weps, which makes frostbrand hard to come up)
Even with Slow/Fast weps, i still will recomend 2 windfury (hard to say it, but its just that frostbrand dmg sucks).

So mate, go 2x slow weps and 2x windfury. Remember that you do want a greater chance to get ~8k WF crit.

i know u didnt mentioned FT. i just copy/paste that info without even reading it well. i know it mentioned FT but i though it would inform you about FT bugg in case u wanted to ask: What about FT in OH?
but anyways my bad. sorry.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I know its a PVE thread. however it has detailed info about slow weps, windfury and its benifits. I wanted to show u that WF works better with 2xslow weps, doesnt matter if its PVE or PVP, Slow makes it great.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The reason that WF/WF does way more Dmg is enough. You do want to kill your oponent. i already told ya that u got Earthbinding and Frostshock to slow them. Why another type of slow?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
you look like if you are 200% sure
go FB if you like it them. np.

EDITED: use wf/wf for high dps but u also need fb in certain sitations. use wf/wf on BGs or on horde raids to sw or vice versa.

I want to thank you as well. I ended up making a Enhancement Shammy as my first main ever, and it has been quite a challenge to get a handle on. I may add that /startattack bit to my Storm Strike. I like to use that as my opener, and if I'm banging the Storm Strike key while it's on cool down I just stand around like an ***** until it's off cool down. I may try out the WF/WF as well. I've been using the WF/FB and I like it, but like you mentioned, it doesn't feel like it procs that often. The only problem I see with your thread is that it may bring in more Enhancement Shammys. I kind of like being a minority. Thanks for the guide though!!

Very detailed guide. I just started making an Enhancement Shaman recently, and this guide really put me on the right track. Just a quick question though. For the enchantments, don't you go Berserking on MH (Main Hand) and Superior Potency on OH?

Edit: One more question, is Deathbringers Will viable on Enhancement Shamans?

Yeah, i dont like to be like the others, thats why ive never liked a warr, dk or rogue. my main is mage and my main spec is fire +PoM (instant pyro) almost anyone have it, so i like that spec.
--
but i did it cuz ppl always say "enh shamans are so easy to beat" "enh shamans sucks" "enh shamans are gay" "enh shamans cant beat me" "no one likes enh shamans" "go play enh on cata, not on wotlk" and every shaman i saw (very small amount) they just sucked at pvp! so i said to myself "we need enh shamans"

i hope that we start seeing more skilled shamans with this guide. thanks for reading it.

No. thats good for pve. u need to have battle master trinket. it gives u 256 attack power (a lot) and u must have the pvp trinket (horde medallion or alliance medallion) for removing stuns and stuffs. its a must.
but
if you have it, or if its easy for u to get it, get it on and see if you do better at pvp. if u dont, stick with battle master and pvp trinket.

No. thats also pve. you Want Attack power. you dont want those cuz of many reasons.
1) you are fighting ppl. and mostly, they will run away from u. you dont have a high chance of poc ing them because u are just doing some SS and LL them they will likely run.
And
if you are fighting someone who sstays close to u (war, pala. druid) you dont want your armor reduced. never. thats why berserking isnt very effective in pvp. if it wasnt for that debuff, i will have it on also.
(sorry if i made any mistake, im so tired, its 5:10 am.... i cant see the keyboard well lol)
i suggest you get x2 s. potency.
-----
im glad you are following it. i hope u understand it/like it. i will be doing constant updates. i am not done still.
Thanks

comet's tail is great. make sure u get the pvp trinket also. if your dps is low, try geming with Attack power gems, enchant everything with attack power, and get 2x slow weps + 2x windfury. also try purging ppls defense buff before attacking them. like priest shield, mage shield, pala buffs and so on.
i got 3 enh shamans:
1) 4.8 GS, pvp/pve, slow/fast wep (crap i want the other slow)
3786 attack power
135 hit rating (pve gear)
673 resi
23% crit
1 gem and 3 enchs
and i do very good dmg on everyone. i always purge them before attacking.
tell me ur specs and on which classes u do low dmg
