Hello guys,not sure completly if I should post question here but the answer from someone might prove a useful contribution...my guild will be attempting Malkorok next raid, and there will most likely be two enhancement shaman in the raid group. My question concerns the use of AG. We are both aware of the major contribution it will make to the absorption shields, but I am not entirely sure if they can be used at the same time...like how one stormlash totem will override the effect of another, is there a similar affect on AG or can more than one be used at the same time for double healing? Also, am I correct in thinking that a heavy haste build produces more healing overall for the ability?

Thanks for any answers, and I hope that the answers can help other shammies in a similar situation :)

Ancestral Guidance is a self-buff, so you can use yours and the other Shaman can use theirs no problem. I would actually recommend that one of you save your cooldown until after the first set of Voidzones! That way you can help your healers rebuild the shields nice and fast. You should then have it up for the next Phase 1 and be able to do the same again.

Sorry for the spam. I'll just keep posting what I'm doing until Stoove bans me.

 

Immerseus HC - forgot

Glyph of Shamanistic Rage can dispel the debuff you get for attacking the boss.

 

Protectors HC 
Glyphed the Fire Elmental so you have burst for every transition.
Glyph of MW5
Make sure you're comfortable with Wind Shear.

Co-ordinate with your healers on AG and offheals. It can get very intense.

Norushen HC

EM/PE build with Glyph of PE worked well. If you have AoC trinket ask to go first in. I went first in of our dps, came out and blew all my CDs. When "all" of our dps's had gone in to remove the corruption I had my CDs back up and we Bloodlusted with most of our dps with no corruption.

Glyph of MW5 - it can get hectic
Use AG and offheal when your healers go in to remove the corruption.

Sha of Pride HC
Glyph of Shamanist Rage and you save your healers a dispel (and pride).

Glyph of Spirit Walk can be nice, since you'll be running alot around.
Echo of the Elements isn't really viable since you won't be stacking and AoEing much.

Galakras HC
I've found that PE and Glyph of PE really helped bursting down the min-bosses and shamans.The banners, HTT and shamans are top priority. They have ton of health. I went with PE/EotE build. Otherwise pretty much same as normal.

Iron Juggernut HC
No real change from a dps standpoint. This is fight is just about surviving that insane damage.
Glyph of MW5 is a must.
Astral Shift is nice to minimize the damage from the first pulse
You can also eat the mines with Astral Shift, but talk to your tanks first.
If you have a shield, you could also make a weapon swap macro, since the damage is physical and mitigated by armor.
Use AG before the first pulse to make sure everybody is topped off before they get thrown.
Make sure you have MW5 before the pulse so you can CH the whole group when you land.

Cast HR as soon as you land to help with healing.
Talk to your healers about HTT rotation.
If you're not running to boss, just keep spamming heals to help out the healers. You won't be able to dps anyway.

Dark Shaman HC
Depending on if you're with Harrom or Kardris you want SBT or Astral Shift.

Harrom has a Toxic Mist wich is a 30 sec debuff that hits like a truck. Stone Bulwark Totem has a 30 sec duration so it fits nicely to mitigate it. I then popped Shamanist Rage near the end where you take increased damage.

Kardris has Iron Prison which always hits you for 100% hp so Astral Shift leaves you at 40%. Time it well.

Glyph of HST helps mitigate the nature damage, which really helps with Toxic Mist.
Remember to cast HR on raid before Falling Ash and even cast MW5 Chain Heal to help out.
Glyph of MW5
 

Other than: Nuke and move from stuff. Pure execution fight.

Nazgrim HC

PE/EM for burst on start and berskerk phases.
Glyph of Capicator totem helps with Iron Blades (you can stun the spin)
Symbiosis gives you Solar Beam that helps on Arcweavers.
Grounding Totem "CAN" work on the Arcweavers if his target is your group. So ask to be put in a non-tank group, so it has a potential on 5 instead of 3.
Earthgrab totem works on the Assins. Place it before they spawn. It will take him out of his invis and even if he breaks it he will be slowed.

This of course depends entirely on your setup and strategy but an enh shaman should be able to lock out the Arcweaver with Capicator, Grounding, Wind Shear and Solar Beam while your team nukes down the Shaman.

Save BL for the 2nd Bersker phase, there's gonna be more hectic things going on and you'll have your cooldowns up again from the pull.

Great contributions from Krakir again, I updated the guide.

 

Some of the points about totems were already noted in the guide.

Malkorok HC

Same as Normal. Just note that Windwalk Totem works on the Displaced Energy so your raid can move with the debuff.

Edit: You can also use Call of the Elements to reset the cooldown. Allowing you free both sets in one stack. CotE is not on GCD so you can macro it with WW totem.

 

/cast Windwalk Totem
/cast Call of the Elements

Malkorok Heroic additions.

1. Don't use HTT at the start only AG.

2. When the bloodrage is fading out, then you want to use AG+HTT to make sure that players are getting healed to full before the shields are applied and then getting a full shield.

If you have good raid frames you could make them track the shields of your raid. I did this and used MW5 HS to snipe players with low shields when the pools were coming. You don't wan't players with no or low shields to soak. They're gonna die or sit at a very low hp throughout the fight.

Shamans are quite good at soaking since we have
a) Nice mobility with Ghost Wolf and Windwalk Totem (if the add hits you)
b) Alot of self healing through MW5 HS and Wolves.
c) Pretty nice defenisve cooldowns with low cd. Shamanist Rage+SBT/AS

Just to give you some idea of our healing power. Here are some numbers from my first kill.
- Average healing: 66 k hps

- Peak healing:  500k hps at the start and 250k hps at bloodrage.  
- Total tealing: 21 M

Don't be afraid to use the full toolkit of the shaman to help you net kills you wouldn't otherwise get. If there's a player with no or low shield shield about to soak then he's gonna die. So then you have the choice to increase your dps by casting instant Lightning Bolt and loosing a whole player worth of dps or to throw a MW5 heal on him and even HR where he's standing to keep him alive and the raid moving forward.

I'd like to note that on Sha, self dispelling without Gift does not generate any pride. The same applies to a warlock self-dispel when sacrificing an imp. I believe that you only gain pride when it is a targetted magical dispel, which is almost only exclusive to healers.

A few of the spell links go to "flight of the netherwing", which as far as I'm aware is not a spell we have :P

 

Also, it's been said, but the UE+PE build is bananas on Norushen.  Highly recommended.  Glyph of Feral Spirits and Glyph of Lightning Shield are also great for that fight, since the damage comes in every 3 seconds and is quite intense.

Thanks for the catch! I had pressed "spell" instead of "item" and ... well, there are only so many spell/item ID's out there. They should all be fixed now!

      I’m Caperfin. Shaman tank, Rogue Raid Tank, warlock tank and others are my forte. This guide culminates many years of work. If a topic is not addressed or you have questions, see my Livestream.
      Table of Contents
      Introduction Race Profession Threat Threat Reducers Totems Talents Rotations Buffs Debuffs Gear Enchants AoE Tanking Raid Composition Burning Crusade Preparations Introduction
      Can Shamans tank in WoW? The short and to the point answer is, yes. You might be rubbing your eyes in disbelief of this answer. Perhaps conjuring a ten page manifesto about how only warriors can and should tank. Although, I can go on a long rant about how there are many other classes that can tank, today, I’ll be focusing on our totemic friend, the shaman.
      The topic of viable and optimal is contentious as some don’t see the difference or mix them up and levy a misguided philosophy onto it. Optimal is the most efficient and foolproof solution that eliminates as many negative variables as possible and favors an easier path. Viable or often referred to as: possible, seen as the more challenging path but to many is a greater personal triumph. Shaman Tank is labelled as viable.
      Many Shaman tanks agree their motivation is from the glory of seizing a feat the rest of the realm dares not try. If this resonates with you, please continue reading. You shaman tank if you want a challenge and a refreshing perspective from a 15 year old game. If it wasn’t obvious before, shield bearing is a sizable undertaking.
      When experienced players Shaman tank and put in the effort, it shines tenfold. Shamans can fully tank 5mans, 10mans, off-tank & main-tank raids. But, this is reliant on personal and guild experience. Our overall defensive statistics won’t reach a warrior’s. However, it isn’t necessary to do so, to tank.
      Race
      Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSwrwzQu8LU
      You’ll be staring at your character for a long time. So, consider your character’s appearance as a key factor as it may entice you to play more. All races have assets but they’re minor compared to other aspects. There is no wrong race. See video to learn more about race options.
      Professions
      Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHDrGXq4qxY Engineering for: Goblin Sapper Charge, Masterwork Target Dummy, Force Reactive Disk, etc… The second useful profession, is whatever gives the most gold on the realm. Gold helps buy potions, ex: Flask of the Titans & consumable food, ex: Dirge's Kickin' Chimaerok Chops and other items.
      Threat
      Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ackVIuwJcQU
      Leading threat spells: Earth Shock, Stormstrike, Rockbiter Weapon & Lightning Shield. Consumable items deal threat, ex: Major Rejuvenation Potion based on half of the Health & Mana gained. Damage items, ex: Goblin Sapper Charge deals threat equal to the damage so do reflective Buffs, ex: Thorns. Lastly, certain items deal threat each time their Debuff is triggered, ex: Gift of Arthas. (see threat list)
      Threat Reducers
      Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiUPOAtrqXY
      Install a threat tracking addon, ex: ThreatClassic 2, which will show the threat of your group/raid. Classes can reduce threat with items ex: Fetish of the Sand Reaver, with talents, ex: Burning Soul. Reduce the threat of others thanks to spells, ex: Tranquil Air Totem. Wipe all threat with abilities, ex: Vanish & items, ex: Flask of Petrification. For a while, prevent Aggro, ex: Limited Invulnerability Potion. Lastly, redirect aggro, ex: Masterwork Target Dummy (taunts the target). Finally, classes within the 30-40 yard range won’t draw aggro until they outweigh the threat level of the mob’s current target by 30%, as opposed to 10% for melee classes.
      Totems
      Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGqY05WzUbA Totems can’t deal threat for you. Common totems: Grace of Air Totem, Stoneskin Totem & Healing Stream Totem. AoE Tanking: Stoneclaw Totem followed by Fire Nova Totem. To learn more, see the video.
      Talents
      Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DW7rOdYMNrs If tanking for the first time (16/35/0), which has: Stormstrike, it has steady threat per second for raids & excels on short fights. The other setup (21/30/0) focuses on magical damage, with: Elemental Fury, it has many conditions to unlock its potential but thrives on long fights.
      Rotation
      Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNHiqdqbKUg Pre-Pull: Cast Lightning Shield. Get all Buffs the group can give. Cast Rockbiter Weapon. Place: Stoneskin Totem, Grace of Air Totem & Healing Stream Totem. Mark the mobs in front of you by right-clicking their portrait, pick Raid Target Icon, pick from either a Skull = kill first, a red X = kill second, a blue square = Hunter trap or a moon = Polymorph.
      Pulling: Cast Lightning Bolt, followed by as many Lightning Bolt possible to trigger, Elemental Focus. Lastly, Earth Shock.
      Combat: For raids, use Nat Pagle's Broken Reel to assure the first few Earth Shocks hit. In a fight, use relevant ranks of Earth Shock that suits your mana & threat. Stormstrike can’t be downranked but is also used in similar cases. If Lightning Shield expires, cast it. If you suddenly might die, equip a defensive weapon, ex: Spineshatter w/Enchant Weapon - Agility & Rockbiter Weapon, use Masterwork Target Dummy (taunts boss), use Juju Escape, possibly Major Rejuvenation Potion & Major Healthstone.
      Buffs
      Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jqai5bITZyI There’s a max of 32 Buffs, avoid nearing the max as it may result in Buffs getting pushed off, the addon: Buff Cap Tracker helps. Use Buff Cap Calc to see what Buffs stack. Prioritize getting defensive Buffs, ex: Elixir of Fortitude before getting Threat Buffs, ex: Juju Might. (see Defensive Buffs). Consumables not only give Buffs but some have instant effects, ex: Goblin Sapper Charge, Major Healthstone, Dark Rune among others.
      Debuffs
      Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FrsQ7rfSj8
      A max of 16 Debuffs can be on a mob. Reaching the max is major in raids. There’s defensive Debuffs: Insect Swarm & threat Debuffs: Faerie Fire among others. With the raid leader’s consent, suggest ideal Debuffs without overstepping. We can apply Gift of Arthas & Stormstrike.
      Gear
      Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FrsQ7rfSj8
      Cement defensive stats when gearing, threat is second. It’s advised to get 4k HP & 5k Armor unbuffed for Molten Core. Blackwing Lair, ~4800 to 5k HP and 6500-7k Armor. For reliable threat, 3% melee Hit is advised for dungeons. For Raid tanking, 6% Melee Hit and 10%-12% Spell Hit, Nat Pagle’s Broken Reel helps. Improving threat can be complex, use a TPS Simulator. You can only equip a weapon & shield in combat, enabling the swap to a defensive weapon, ex: Spineshatter, if survival seems grim.
      Enchants
      Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJqx0yCkyig
      There are two types of enchants, defensive, ex: Enchant Gloves - Superior Agility. And offensive, ex: Enchant Gloves - Threat. Having Enchanting isn’t needed to gain the profession’s advantages. Simply, give the Enchanter the required enchanting materials and they will enchant your gear for a small gold tip.
      AoE Tanking
      Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJcEj5DpNjg
      Many actions can further solidify AoE cases, ex: Oil of Immolation, Thorns, Force Reactive Disk, etc… (see list) It’s crucial to switch and attack another target ever so often. In combat, items & spells giving health or mana deal 50% threat divided by each mob. Items also help until a decent amount of threat is gained on all mobs, ex: Masterwork Target Dummy.
      Raid Composition
      Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSmrU3T25wg
      With the raid leader’s consent, offer an ideal raid comp without overstepping. In our group, Warlock:Blood Pact, Warrior:Battle Shout, Druid: Leader of the Pack, Hunter: Trueshot Aura. For damage dealing classes, we prefer ranged classes over melee. If melee are needed, rogues are best. Groups with high threat dealers can have a Shaman: Tranquil Air Totem.
      Burning Crusade Preparations
      Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcglggmJNMQ
      The Burning Crusade “TBC” is looming and being prepared is wise. A lot of gold is an asset, since there are many different gear sets needing: repair, enchants & gems. You’ll also need: potions, bind on equip gear, etc… Building a positive reputation on your realm helps open doors in the future as players recognise you. Next, find a guild welcoming of your future tanking ventures. For gear, Nat Pagle’s Broken Reel is advised going into TBC.
