Patch 3.2 – Shaman Changes Summary

In patches by Myrddin0 Comments

The release of Patch 3.2 seems to be imminent, a good moment to list the coming changes for the Shaman class. You can find the complete patch notes here. Personally I am looking forward to see the Totem Bar, the ability to drop multiple totems at the same time. I am not so sure what to think of the Earth Shock change, yet. At least you can continue full dps while interrupting, at the cost of one more button on the action bar. Quote from: WoW-Europe.com (Source) Class Changes Base health increased by approximately 7% to correct for shamans having …

Recent searches: “best totems to use”

In news by Myrddin0 Comments

Browsing through recent search queries on this website I noticed the  query “best totems to use”. What are the best totems we can use? I’d say PvE as enhancement shaman the most commonly used combination is Strength of Earth Totem Windfury Totem Healing Stream Totem Magma Totem Strength of Earth Totem is still stronger than Horn of Winter, unless there is a lot of moving involved or the need for Tremor Totem, it should always be up. As Enhancement Shaman the Windfury Totem should be the primary choice in the Air category. The Healing Stream Totem is the most commonly …

Instance Farming: Ruins of Ahn’Qiraj (AQ 20)

In news by Myrddin0 Comments

An instance that I particularly like to farm for gold are Ruins of Ahn’Qiraj. At level 80 the level 60 raid mobs do not really pose any threat and make a quick run quite lucrative. A typical run takes about 45 min and averages about 250 gold profit, even if you just vendor all the drops you find. Here is a little screenshot from this afternoons AQ 20 run. As you can see there is not so much gold from bosses, but the real goodies are the skillbooks for the Level 60 abilities that drop 1-2 per boss and can …

Garwal, Worgen Pet tameable!

In news by Myrddin0 Comments

To get this awesome Worgen as Hunter Pet you need to prepare a few things. Garwal has 14k hp and he turns from wolf to worg at 50%. If you tame him before he transforms then he will stay a gray worg, if you tame him right after he transforms he will turn into the humaoid form then and then right into a worg. You need to make sure you get him to 50% hp when the taming proces finishes. A simple way to do this is to use the ability Wyvern Sting. A stinging shot that puts the target …

How to play Enhancement Shaman and use Rotations

In news by Myrddin0 Comments

This Guide has been written in 2009 when Ulduar was the highest Instance. Now that Cataclysm has been incoming I suggest you take a look here for updated Information:   The Enhancement Shaman Guide 4.0   A lot of search queries here seem to be related to questions about how to play an Enhancement Shaman and which Rotations to use. I will try to summarize this from my own experience, so do not expect any scientific approach and trust my gut feeling 😉 With 3.0 Developpers promised to make Enhancement Shaman “less mathy”, but the opposite is the fact. Noone …

Most recent Borked Patchwerk Kill

In news by Myrddin0 Comments

Since I get asked a lot I have uploaded the most recent Patchwerk kill. It wasn’t our best kill, but nevertheless with 2:10 minutes a pretty decent one. Here is a link to the WWS. As you can see I wasn’t prepared well and spent the first 10 seconds by putting up Totems, Heroism and wolves. I’ll upload a new Patchwerk kill if we have a faster one 🙂 We were going for Immortal, so the fight had an exciting start with one of the Tanks nearly dieing. Soon enough we got enough focus and made quick werk of him. …
