About Our Reviewer

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Purge, one of the best Enhancement Shamans in the world, who often contributes to the Enhancement Shaman section of Totem Spot.

1. Gems↑top

Below 50% Haste, you should use Immaculate Haste Taladite Icon Immaculate Haste Taladite (better) Greater Haste Taladite Icon Greater Haste Taladite (cheaper), or Haste Taladite Icon Haste Taladite (even cheaper) in all sockets. That said, if you want to prioritize AoE damage or if you have way more Haste than your other secondary stats, you can go for Immaculate Mastery Taladite Icon Immaculate Mastery Taladite (better) Greater Mastery Taladite Icon Greater Mastery Taladite (cheaper), or Mastery Taladite Icon Mastery Taladite (even cheaper) in all sockets.

Above 50% Haste, you should use Immaculate Mastery Taladite Icon Immaculate Mastery Taladite (better) Greater Mastery Taladite Icon Greater Mastery Taladite (cheaper), or Mastery Taladite Icon Mastery Taladite (even cheaper) in all sockets.

* Burst Haste is not as valuable as passive Haste, since it can more easily send you over the 50% Haste softcap. As a result, you could very well find yourself using 1 or 2 Bleeding Hollow enchants, even if you have haste enchants on the rest of your slots. In most cases, this represents a very slight single-target DPS loss for a slight AoE DPS improvement.

3. Consumables↑top

3.1. Food

For fights that are purely single-target, you should always eat Felmouth Frenzy Icon Felmouth Frenzy, especially if there is movement involved. The proc of Felmouth Frenzy is RPPM, so it is not affected by movement (it will still proc as often in a movement-heavy encounter), but it does not scale up with additional targets, as stat-based food does. For this reason, this is the food of choice for Fel-Lord Zakuun.

In other situations, you should always eat food that gives you Haste. You will be granted:

3.2. Flask

Your flask should be a Draenic Agility Flask Icon Draenic Agility Flask or a Greater Draenic Agility Flask Icon Greater Draenic Agility Flask (better).

3.3. Rune

Your rune should be a Hyper Augment Rune Icon Hyper Augment Rune. Note that you can also use the empowered version with a 1-minute cooldown that you get from Tanaan Jungle:

3.4. Potion

During the encounter, your best choice for a potion will be Draenic Agility Potion Icon Draenic Agility Potion.
