Best Gems for Enhancement 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 Strength. Blue gems have Mp5 and Yellow gems have Melee Hit. 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.

2.1.

TBC Enhancement Shaman Meta Gem

Relentless Earthstorm Diamond Icon Relentless Earthstorm Diamond is the best meta gem for Enhancement Shamans, increasing your damage substantially and making your frequent Critical Strikes deal even more damage!

2.2.

TBC Enhancement Shaman Red Gem Sockets

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

2.3.

TBC Enhancement Shaman Blue Gem Sockets

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

2.4.

TBC Enhancement Shaman Yellow Gem Sockets

Inscribed Pyrestone Icon Inscribed Pyrestone is the best yellow gem, and you need two of them to unlock Relentless Earthstorm Diamond Icon Relentless Earthstorm Diamond. Use them on yellow sockets with good bonuses.

3.

TBC Classic Enhancement Shaman Complete Consumable List

Because of totem twisting, Enhancement Shamans can be quite Mana hungry, even with Shamanistic Rage IconShamanistic Rage. You can prolong your Mana bar by a lot by using consumables, which is recommended when min-maxing or progressing new bosses. Alternatively, you can downrank Windfury Totem IconWindfury Totem while twisting.

3.1.

TBC Classic Enhancement Shaman Flasks

Flask of Relentless Assault Icon Flask of Relentless Assault is the recommended flask for Enhancement, and is a good option during progress on hard bosses because it does not get removed on death.

3.2.

TBC Classic Enhancement Shaman Elixirs

Elixir of Demonslaying Icon Elixir of Demonslaying is the best Battle Elixir against demons. Elixir of Major Agility Icon Elixir of Major Agility is the best Battle Elixir against everything else. Elixir of Major Mageblood Icon Elixir of Major Mageblood is the best Guardian elixir for long fights, and Elixir of Draenic Wisdom Icon Elixir of Draenic Wisdom is ideal on short fights.

3.3.

TBC Classic Enhancement Shaman Food Buff

Roasted Clefthoof Icon Roasted Clefthoof is the best food available.

3.4.

TBC Classic Enhancement Shaman Potions

Haste Potion Icon Haste Potion is the best DPS potion, although you can also 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.

3.5.

Other TBC Classic Enhancement Shaman Consumables

  • Drums of Battle Icon Drums of Battle give Spell Haste to yourself and your party, as long as they are nearby. Make sure to use this on cooldown if you are a Leatherworker!

  • 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!
