About Our Author

This guide has been written by Furty who raids in Serenity, the number #1 World of Warcraft guild. He plays most classes at the highest level. You can follow him on Twitter and watch him play on Twitch.

1. Basics

The stat priority for an Elemental Shaman is:

  1. Intellect;
  2. Critical Strike;
  3. Haste;
  4. Versatility;
  5. Mastery.

Critical Strike currently pulls ahead of other stats, as it has great synergy with Elemental Focus Icon Elemental Focus, Elemental Fury Icon Elemental Fury, and Ascendance Icon Ascendance.

These statistics have been obtained by combining common sense, in-game testing, and simulations using Simulation Craft.

2. Getting a Better Understanding

Mastery, through Mastery: Elemental Overload Icon Mastery: Elemental Overload, causes your spells to have an additional chance to deal additional damage and generate extra Maelstrom.

Haste increases the speed of your casts as well as the tick rate of your damage over time effects.

Critical Strike increases the damage of your spells and procs Elemental Focus Icon Elemental Focus.

Versatility is a flat-out damage done increase and damage taken reduction.
