What is the best way to gear up an ele/resto shammy?

3 posts in this topic

My Shaman is about to hit level 90, and I was planning on healing LFR with it, and occasionally doing dps/ soloing with an ele spec. What would be the best path for gearing before I start getting tier gear. If I get duplicates of loot, should I keep a separate copy for each spec, or will that just get confusing? Also, what kind of enchants should I use?

My understsanding about Ele is that it relies a lot more on Haste than Resto does (Resto hates Haste early on). I would recommend that you keep extra gear you get and reforge it all for Haste (assuming that's what Ele likes) and keep the Resto gear filled with Crit/Mastery. Any really massive upgrades would improve both though, so don't keep using a green quality helm when you have an epic one in your bags which isn't reforged correctly :)

Was that helpful?

If you're looking for the fastest way, you should heal heroics, convert Justice Points to Honor in your capitol city and buy the Malevolent PvP gear until you're eligible for LFR. Then get some coins from Isle of Thunder dailies and spam them like crazy on whatever can still give you upgrades in LFR.

Keep your duplicates, since you only need a fixed amount of Spirit for DPS, and a lot more for healing.

      Hello everyone!

      I am searching for a WA that shows the icon of the trinket Mote of Sancification and a timer with the cooldown. I am using this trinket lately and I would like to know if it's on cooldown or not during fights.
      I looked online for a lot of them but couldn't find any that were up to date and actually works.

      The updated Icefury build suggests that Totem Mastery is taken.  However, nowhere in the priority whatsoever is it used.  It is, however, used in the Ascendance build.
      That being said, why would you pass on two talents of which you will actually include in your priority to take a talent for an ability you will not?  Or is there any error in the priority?  Is it worth casting?  And where at in the priority?
      Thank you.

      Hi all,
      i started again since WOTLK to play again my shaman , i leveled up as an elemental since i was always played elemental in the past.
      I tested the enchanement a bit , and i like him BUT i dont have in mind to raid except LFR ofc and some heroic dungeons and of course WQ's and grind.
      So i am thinking which spec has better survivability i cannot decide , some times ele doing better some times enha going faster vice versa :/
      I know that as a casual player now i have to play what is more fun for me BUT with the artifact AP to the weapons ( i have both to lvl 13 but now the AP is going bigger) its not so easy so i have to decide at least which spec to level up the weapon first so an opinion could help me decide.
      All i need is fast grind,good dps in dungeons and easy playing with good survivability .
      Thank you all for your replies :)

      I have three trinkets to choose from, Two from Mythic EN, Heightened Senses @ 880, Vial of Nightmare Fog @ 880, and finally from Nightbane Kara i have the Ethereal Urn @875. If any other experienced resto shamans could weigh in and help me make a decision it would be appreciated.
