Shaman Leveling Guide

In the beginning af the guide it looks like it's a mageguide. I guess it's a case of copy/paste from the mageguide that has not been changed.

Indeed, it was! Thank you very much for reporting the issue :)

Just wondering when you're going to get your guides back up for leveling up starting at level 1. These were actually quite helpful when learning how to play a new class effectively.

The old level 1-85 guides are gone because the classes changed too much for them to still be applicable. We will update the current leveling guides to include the part between level 1 and level 85 as soon as we find the time.

The Talents and Glyphs link seems to lead to a blank Talent Calculator.

I couldn't reproduce that.

Hey Damien,

I believe it may be the person's browser - at home I use IE 8 (still using XP), at work I use IE10. When IE 10 is put on IE8 browser mode, the talents window does not have any color shading around the different levels. But if IE9 or IE10 mode is used then the talents window is shaded properly.

So the fix is to double check your browser mode if using IE 9 or 10, and if you are stuck at IE8 or less - use Firefox.

Now, get them shaman 1-90 guides done! Posted Image

After picking up my shammy again ( in cata last played).

I went to pandaria and was looking for the best way to lvl!

The best way for me was aoe lvling. So i tought by myself lets check Icy Veins!(to get better or change anything)

What do i see? U dont recommend this, i mean single target is sooooo boring ( and slow).

Shammys might be a bit squishy imo, but aoe lvling is fun! take on 5-6 mobs and see ur hp go to 11% or sumthing and ur mobs are down!! This satisfies me alot :D

Anyways, very nice leveling guild

We have had more important things to work on in the past, but eventually we will get into it, since we do have a template from Frost mage guide now.

Hey guys, where are all your 1-85 Leveling guides? Those were some of the best tools ever! When can we expect them? Im waiting to roll a Shaman until you update. Youre complete guides for the monk along with the reposts to Sunnier were just amazing. How do we get this done? I cant wait! lol Do we need to donate like 50 bucks or something? Thanks again for all the stuff you do; your site really helps, and we all appreciate it.

You say to use elemental spec, but call for use of Stormstrike (enhancement only) in the rotation.  I think you mean Primal Strike.

What happened to the 1-85 guide??? That guide was really great for learning basic rotation's and then building up to a more final rotation for later.

We thought that we would find the time to write them after the release of MoP. But, we did not. We will need to come up with a way to get these guides back for the next expansion.

Just one Error since the Pre Patch from WOD point 5 is wrong

 

1.2. Rotation

You have to adapt your raiding rotation slighty, so that it works against targets which, generally, will not live very long. As an Elemental Shaman, you should try and kill enemies one by one and to avoid pulling mobs together. Follow this priority list.

  1. Keep wow_icon_spell_fire_flameshock.jpg Flame Shock up on the target. Refresh when there are 3 seconds or less left.
  2. Cast wow_icon_spell_shaman_lavaburst.jpg Lava Burst on cooldown
    • watch out for its cooldown being reset by procs of wow_icon_spell_shaman_lavasurge.jpg Lava Surge.
  3. Cast wow_icon_spell_nature_earthshock.jpg Earth Shock when you have between 12 and 15 charges of wow_icon_spell_nature_lightningshield.jp Lightning Shield.
  4. Keep wow_icon_spell_fire_searingtotem.jpg Searing Totem up.
  5. Cast wow_icon_spell_nature_lightning.jpg Lightning Bolt as a filler. You can cast this spell while moving

This needs to be updated for 6.03.

Earthshock isn't even available to Enhancement any more.  ..and that's just the most glaring issues.

This was fixed in the guide 8 days ago.

Really, this is a leveling guide? You kind of skipped the majority of the levels. Not everyone is focused on end-game content. Remember the saying that life's a journey and not a destination? Sometimes, some of us prefer the journey more than the destination.

Icy Veins is an end-game oriented website, we only have guides for that. Besides, Blizzard has done a great job making it a lot easier for people to get into the game and levelling guide (with tutorials and in-game explanations) that it feels pointless to spend weeks working on these guides so that they would cover the lower levels. In addition, people can now boost their characters to 90.

    • [Argent Dawn][H] <Ashen Rose Conspiracy> (11/13H) raiders and socials
      By Shells
      Hello there.  
      Short version  
       
      Ashen Rose Conspiracy is recruiting for new players who are over the age of 18 to join our guild and be active and social within the group. We are based on the EU Argent Dawn server and fight for the Horde. Ideally we would like for players to have an interest in raiding with us but that is not a strict requirement. We have space for people who just want to join a social guild and maybe poke some heroics/mythic dungeon runs or just to have a place to call home while they level up. Non raiders skip to the bottom of this post as you will have less requirements to join up.  
       
      If you’re currently bored with LFR raids or pugging normal or heroic then we would be a group you should consider seriously. We raid 2 nights a week with personal loot system and we have a stocked raid bank to support our raiders as we progress through the content of this expansion and leave ourselves in a good place to progress through the content of Legion also.  
       
         
       
      Longer version  
       
      About us  
       
      We are the Ashen Rose Conspiracy, a social guild that has been playing wow since the start of the game. In that space of time the guild has grown and matured with a good core of players who have stayed around for years and others who have played, taken breaks and then come back for more. We are a mature guild of 18+ gamers. The social aspect of the game along with raiding and other team events is what makes us different to hardcore raid groups. The group is more of a group of friends who chat and joke with each other’s rather than a group of strangers. New comers will hopefully fit into this and get with the social aspect of the guild.  
       
      Argent Dawn is a RP PVE server and it’s a fun place to live. As a guild we don’t push RP but we do have a few individuals who organize some RP and all members are free to take part or not as is their whim.   
       
      We are casual serious raiders and to date we have 7/13H with plans to push forward. We have circa 15 active raiders and usually run a group from 10-13 of them each week depending on real life and raid requirements. We want to grow our raid team in preparation for Legion.   
       
      Let me explain the casual serious bit.   
       
      We are a casual guild but when we raid we have pretty strict requirements that you   
       
      • Know your spec and class  
       
      • Turn up prepared and repaired  
       
      • Know the fights beforehand  
       
      • Be willing to listen on Mumble for direction from the Raid leaders.  
       
         
       
      We raid 2 nights a week, on a Thursday and Sunday from 21.00 to 23.30 server time and have done for the last few years. Loot is covered by Personal loot so it’s a fair and open system. There are no ninja looters here. BOE loot that drops on a run is usually offered to the raiders who are on the run that night and if not needed is placed in Guild bank for sorting out later.  
       
      What we are not  
       
      A hardcore raid group demanding full attendance and adherence to what we want from you. If that’s what your after then we wish you luck with your search. If your after a relaxed yet serious group with which to have fun then you have found us.  
       
      What we offer you  
       
      Stability. The Guild has been here since Argent Dawn went live give or take a day or two and will be here for years to come.   
       
      Strong Raid leaders who know what they are doing but who are not averse to trying new tactics to overcome challenges.  
       
      We have a fully stocked raid bank that will provide flasks and potions for the raids. We also provide 100 stat foods. We can help out with enchants and gems as well.   
       
      Stable Heroic progress with weekly normal archimonde kills to gear up your legendary ring.   
       
      We hope to be able to kill heroic Archi within a few weeks but that is down to progress and sign ups.  
       
      Laughs. No, really. We laugh and joke a lot on Mumble during our raids. Gaming is supposed to be fun after all.  
       
      What we are looking for  
       
      Roles  
       
      DPS. We have tanking and healing covered for the moment. If you’re a healer/tank with a DPS spec that you don’t mind playing then we would consider you for a dps slot firstly. This might sound a bit harsh but we don’t want to recruit anyone on the premise that they will be healing or tanking every week when they will likely be asked to dps. That being said, it is nice to have the flexibility of having off healers or tanks in the group.   
       
      Comms  
       
      We have our own Mumble server and we would require that you be able to listen on it. Talking is not a requirement but it can be handy.   
       
      Attendance  
       
      We raid twice a week. We do not expect a 100% attendance from anyone as we acknowledge that RL comes first and that stuff happens. We have calendar sign up and would use our website to organize raids. If your free and want to raid then sign up, if you’re not then it’s not an issue. We won’t be kicking anyone for not raiding. I  
       
      Gear  
       
      As we are progressing through Heroic HFC at the moment a minimum gear level for prospective raiders of 700 is preferred. There is some flexibility around this gear level and we will assess it on a case by case basis. We have all been there waiting for “X item of super duper kickass” to drop to upgrade our current gear. Having your gear enchanted, gemmed and valor upgraded as well is a requirement. While it may not be possible to do all of this, having none of it done for the application will decrease your likelihood of getting in. If you join us we will help out with getting you set up for raiding where possible. For raid nights your gear has to be ready, that is mandatory.  
       
      Application process.  
       
      We have a guild website where our application forms are located. http://www.arcorb.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?17-The-Initiation  
       
      We would ask that you fill in the application and log out in your raid gear if you have it and we will go from there. What we would expect on the application is an attempt to put some effort into the application process. If you’re not bothered to fill out the form and put in some work then it gives the impression that you’re just not bothered in general.  
       
      It may also be possible to bring prospective raiders on a raid to assess their performance without them being in the guild. As mentioned above, loot is personal loot so you won’t lose out to others, only to RNG. You can also grab me, Shells (DavidR#2633), in game for a chat if you wish. I am not a raid leader or guild officer so we can just chat.  
       
         
       
      Non raider applicants  
       
      Application process is the same but without a gear check. We like social well-adjusted people who come to game to enjoy themselves without causing issues.
