Elemental Shaman TBC Pre-Patch BiS Gear Guide
On this page, you will find the best in slot items for your Elemental Shaman during the pre-patch of the Burning Crusade.
Gearing Strategy for Elemental Shamans in the TBC Classic Pre-patch
While this list focuses on the best gear possible for established players, the time available to gear up within the pre-patch for newly boosted or leveled characters is extremely short, and as such your best bet if you are part of that group is to spam queue PvP for good gear that is also easy to get.
You may also want to complement that gear with our Classic era pre-raid best in slot list, which has plenty of strong options that do not require a large raid group to obtain.
TBC Classic Pre-patch Elemental Shaman Best in Slot
Naxxramas carries the best gear Classic era has to offer, but unfortunately, Shamans Tier 3, The Earthshatterer is a pure healing set, and as such has next to no value to Elemental Shamans.
Thus, our recommended gear is a compilation of individually strong pieces, mostly avoiding Spell Hit due to the new Elemental talents taking care of 9% (out of 16% Spell Hit cap against bosses) outright.
Other Top Pre-patch Gear for Elemental Shamans
While the list above contains the absolute best gear setup, you are unlikely to quickly gather all of it. We provide more options below, some which are very close to the best and some which are just much easier to get!
