Killer World Of Warcraft Shaman Guide

Apr 9, 2008
When you write a World of Warcraft Guide on Shamans you could just as well take out a world of warcraft guide about warriors, mages or anyone of the healing classes. In fact you could probably make the mistake of confusing Shamans for Druids due to the fact that like Druids Shamans too are a hybrid class that is able to tank heal or cast. However you might be told that they do not perhaps perform these abilities as well as specialist classes tank classes like warriors, or healing classes like priests or a caster class like Mages. There might be a case for thinking that but consider this: the Druid can heal in tree form it can tank if in the form of a bear, give damage when turning into a cat. The Shamans is able to do all of those - at the same time! This is where their real power manifests itself whether played as a solo class or with a group.

What makes the Shaman unique is their use of totems which when fixed on the ground gives them and other group members a wide range of benefits such as healing and aid when fighting opponents. It's the use of totems and how to use them effectively which is what makes playing a Shaman an exciting and challenging experience. There are four types of totems: Earth, Fire, Water and Air and each require split second decision and sound judgement when used in tricky combat situation or group play. Shamans have also the ability to resurrect themselves and others in their group using the Reincarnation spell every hour of played time; this can also be reduced to 40 minutes as they assign more talent points to that ability. Another great asset to any group and a great ability to have if you solo.

Thanks to the Burning Crusade expansion Shamans is no longer restricted as being a Horde only class. Now the new Alliance race the Draenei, can also play as Shaman which, of all the classes that they have at their disposa,l is one of the best for them to pick thanks to attributes that are unique to this race which makes this class an ideal choice for them.

Upon reaching level 70, you can specialize your Shammy as either an Elemental, Enhancement or Restoration Shaman. Each of these trees has their own unique abilities. For Elemental s, the focus is on high damage casting abilities and this makes it the best choice for power levelling fast while Restoration Shamans have higher healing abilities and later in the game are useful healers and back up casters.

This condensed world of warcraft guide on shamans only touches the surface. This is indeed a multi talented and complex class to master. It's the very fact that they are jack of all trades and master of none that makes the Shamans a class to consider because as you play you will will be able to gauge whether you like to cast, tank or heal without having to start three new characters. And make no mistake, Shamans can indeed master of all of these abilities just as proficiently as any of the classes that are more specialized in them, making them expert of all of these abilities and definitely the jack of none. You will find out at your peril if you underestimate this class and pass it up for another.
