Enhancement Shaman Pre-Raid Best in Slot List

This is the pre-raid gear we recommend for Enhancement Shamans, setting you up to tackle the initial raids of TBC, such as Karazhan. The gear choices in the tables below follow our stat guide priority.


Other Enhancement Shaman Best in Slot Lists

If your character is ready to jump into Phase 5 / Tier 6 content, then see our current best in slot list. If you wish to go through the content of Tiers 4 or 5 instead, then please see their respective lists below.


Pre-Raid Best in Slot Table

Some of the listed gear can be expensive to get, or hard to obtain in the case of heroic dungeon gear, so do not be afraid of going straight into raiding at 70, as it should be easy enough to do most of the bosses in questing gear!

Fist of Reckoning Icon Fist of Reckoning is a special off-hand in that, while its damage is lower than most level 70 options, it has 2.7 weapon speed, which allows you to better weapon sync with the recommended 2.7 main hand weapons! Check out the rotation guide below for more details on what weapon syncing is and why it matters for DPS.
