Many Shaman improvements in build 12857

Glyphs PreviewHoly! They for sure polished up Enhancement Shaman with the latest build. The issues I mentioned in previous posts have been mostly fixed and playing shaman turned out to be quite fun!



There are more Glyph Slots available: Prime Glyphs, Major Glyphs, Minor Glyphs
Some Major and Prime Glyphs seemd to be the same, but that could be caused I learnt all Glyphs before.

  • Glyphs of Healing Stream:
    Your Healing Stream Totem also increases the Fire, Frost, and Nature resistance of party and raid members within 30 yards by 150
  • Lightning Shield:
    Your Lightning Shield can no longer drop below 3 charges from dealing damage to attackers.
  • Arctic Wolf:
    Alters the appearance of your Ghost Wolf transformation, causing it to resemble an arctic wolf.
  • Shamanistic Rage:
    Activating your Shamanistic Rage ability also cleanses you of all dispellable Magic debuffs
  • Ghost Wolf:
    Increases the Movement Speed of your Ghost Wolf by 10%

All these Glyph changes are kind of nice, Healing Stream + Resistance in 1 Totem, faster Ghost Wolf (remember we can use it indoors), Shamansitic Rage as our personal “Minicloak of Shadows” to remove magic effects. The Lightning Shield Glyph is also very nice, since you ar eno longer required to permanently check your buffbars if it is still active.


Ghost Wolf has been changed to heal 10% of your max hp per 5 seconds and still works indoors (glyphed at 150%)!

Maelstrom Weapon is finally working as stated 2 patches before! 5 Stacks of MSW reduce mana costs of spells 0!!! This basically removes all the mana issues and I hardly go oom anymore. At the same time it is unlike Retribution who basically stays at 100% mana all the time.

As Announced before Maelstrom Weapon got an Power Aura like greaphic, when it reaches 5 stacks.

My Mana regeneneration is still at 600 mp/5 even while in combat.

Graphic effects for Healing Rain have finally been introduced!
