Best Gems for Elemental Shamans

Because of the different stat values, as discussed in our stats page, the value of each gem varies, depending on the stats they provide.

The red gems are usually the most valuable, granting a lot of Spell Damage. Blue gems have Mp5 and Yellow gems have Spell Crit or Spell Haste. Typically the value of just stacking red gems is such that you will want to ignore socket bonuses, unless you can get them with one split gem and they offer a strong stat such as bonus spell damage.


TBC Elemental Shaman Meta Gem

Chaotic Skyfire Diamond Icon Chaotic Skyfire Diamond is the best overall meta gem for Elemental Shamans, increasing your damage substantially and making your frequent Spell Critical Strikes deal even more damage!


TBC Elemental Shaman Red Gem Sockets

The Runed Crimson Spinel Icon Runed Crimson Spinel is the main gem that you should be putting into your gear, regardless of socket color in most cases.


TBC Elemental Shaman Blue Gem Sockets

Glowing Shadowsong Amethyst Icon Glowing Shadowsong Amethyst is the best blue gem, and you need two of them to unlock Chaotic Skyfire Diamond Icon Chaotic Skyfire Diamond. Try to put them into blue sockets in order to get some socket bonuses as well.


TBC Elemental Shaman Yellow Gem Sockets

Reckless Pyrestone Icon Reckless Pyrestone is the best yellow gem. Use them on yellow sockets with good bonuses.


TBC Classic Elemental Shaman Complete Consumable List

Because of their expensive spells, Elemental Shamans can be quite Mana hungry. You can prolong your Mana bar by a lot by using consumables, which is recommended when min-maxing or progressing new bosses, as the alternative of downranking your spells leads to a large DPS loss.


TBC Classic Elemental Shaman Flasks

Flask of Blinding Light Icon Flask of Blinding Light is the recommended flask for Elemental, and is about on par with using double elixirs, while potentially being much cheaper for progress on hard bosses because it does not get removed on death.


TBC Classic Elemental Shaman Elixirs

Adept's Elixir Icon Adept's Elixir is the best Battle Elixir, while Elixir of Draenic Wisdom Icon Elixir of Draenic Wisdom, or Elixir of Major Mageblood Icon Elixir of Major Mageblood for Mana, are the best Guardian Elixirs.


TBC Classic Elemental Shaman Food Buff

Blackened Basilisk Icon Blackened Basilisk, Poached Bluefish Icon Poached Bluefish and Crunchy Serpent Icon Crunchy Serpent all give Spell Damage, and are the best food buffs available.


TBC Classic Elemental Shaman Weapon Oil

Brilliant Wizard Oil Icon Brilliant Wizard Oil or Superior Wizard Oil Icon Superior Wizard Oil are the best oils available in TBC Classic.


TBC Classic Elemental Shaman Potions

Destruction Potion Icon Destruction Potion is the best DPS potion, although you should use Super Mana Potion Icon Super Mana Potion instead, if you have Mana issues. If you use the potions quickly enough, you might be able to use several in a single fight, as they share a 2-minute cooldown.


Other TBC Classic Elemental Shaman Consumables

  • Drums of Battle Icon Drums of Battle give Spell Haste to yourself and your group, as long as they are nearby. Make sure to use this on cooldown if you are a Leatherworker!
  • Stratholme Holy Water Icon Stratholme Holy Water are great for killing packs of undead mobs, such as the skeletons on Nightbane.
  • Dark Rune Icon Dark Rune and Demonic Rune Icon Demonic Rune are farmed in WoW Classic content and serve as extra Mana potions.
  • Ankh Icon Ankhs are needed to self-res, make sure you always have some!
  • Engineering explosives such as Super Sapper Charge Icon Super Sapper Charge can be helpful to clear trash packs quickly, but unfortunately can only be used by Engineers.
  • Heavy Netherweave Bandage Icon Heavy Netherweave Bandage are great for keeping your Mana regeneration going while doing some Mana-free healing.
  • Nightmare Seed Icon Nightmare Seeds serve as a 30-second health increase, which can be useful to stay alive in high damage situations.
  • Protection potions such as Major Shadow Protection Potion Icon Major Shadow Protection Potion are crucial to survive the high magical damage of certain encounters, and can also be great in PvP if you have the right potion for the enemy you are facing.
  • Free Action Potion Icon Free Action Potions make you immune to stun and movement impairing effects for 30 seconds, but do not remove effects already on you. These are amazing in PvP and can also be used to preempt dangerous stuns in PvE.
  • Living Action Potion Icon Living Action Potion makes you immune to stun and movement impairing effects for 5 seconds, while also removing any such effects already present on you. This can be of great use in PvP and against dangerous PvE stuns.
  • Invisibility Potion Icon Invisibility Potion and Lesser Invisibility Potion Icon Lesser Invisibility Potion make you invisible for a while, making them great for skipping any especially hard parts of a Heroic dungeon.
  • Swiftness Potion Icon Swiftness Potion increases your movement speed by 50% for 15 seconds. These can occasionally be useful in both PvP and PvE situations.
