Elemental Shaman Phase 1 / Tier 4 Best in Slot List

While a clear best in slot list is always available in TBC Classic, the items contained might be extremely hard or expensive to get. Thus, we will try to give at least one alternative, for most slots in the list, so that you can pick where and how to farm them.

The list will focus on gathering the best stats for Elemental, as described in our guide below:

1.1.

Other Elemental Shaman Best in Slot Lists

If you are starting out as a freshly-leveled Elemental Shaman, our pre-raid best in slot list is meant to give you an idea of non-raid items you can chase as a solo / pug player in preparation for raids.

Do note that items from Heroic dungeons or that require Primal Nether Icon Primal Nethers (which are obtained from Heroics) can be harder to get than raid items due to their daily lockout. Some Heroic dungeons are also harder than most of Karazhan.

If, however, your character is ready to take on the content of Tiers 5 and 6, then please utilize our updated lists instead.

1.2.

TBC Phase 1 / Tier 4 Elemental Shaman Tier Set

Elemental Shaman Tier 4, the Cyclone Regalia has gloves, chest, head, legs, and shoulders. Its set bonuses are:

  • 2 pieces: Wrath of Air Totem IconWrath of Air Totem grants an additional 20 Spell Damage. This is a very strong bonus, especially when playing in a caster group!
  • 4 pieces: gives your offensive spell critical strikes a 11% chance to reduce the base Mana cost of your next spell by 270. Not as good as the previous bonus but not worthless, either.

Our recommendation for Tier 4 is using the head and shoulders of Tier 4 alongside Leatherworking's Netherstrike Armor and the best off-set pieces available in the rest of the gear slots.

2.

Phase 1 / Tier 4 Best in Slot Table

The Lightning Capacitor Icon The Lightning Capacitor deserves a special mention, as it is a very powerful trinket for Elemental Shamans, specifically. The trinket procs from spell critical strikes, which include Lightning Overload IconLightning Overload crits and all of Chain Lightning IconChain Lightning jumps.

Keep in mind that the trinket's lightning bolt proc will reset its stacks and incur a 2.5 seconds cooldown on further charge gains. For example, if Elemental Mastery IconElemental Mastery plus Chain Lightning IconChain Lightning hits three targets, a trinket lightning bolt will proc immediately, but it will also remove all charges from the trinket, even if you were already at 2 charges before using it.
