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 Yellow Gem Socket Icon Yellow Gems are usually the most valuable, allowing for pure Haste gemming. Fit one Nightmare Tear Icon Nightmare Tear into the most valuable Blue Gem Socket Icon Blue Gem slot in your gear and Stark Ametrine Icon Stark Ametrines into Red Gem Socket Icon Red Gem slots with socket bonuses you can hit without using extra blue gems. Socket color bonuses are usually worth pursuing, but it depends on the specific stat given for the bonus and whether Blue Gem Socket Icon Blue Gems are needed to unlock it.

Phase 3 introduced epic gems from prospecting Titanium Ore Icon Titanium Ore. You can also transmute them with Alchemy or buy them with emblems.


Wrath Enhancement Shaman Meta Gem

Relentless Earthsiege Diamond Icon Relentless Earthsiege Diamond is the best Meta Gem Socket Icon Meta Gem for Enhancement Shamans, increasing your damage substantially and making your frequent Critical Strikes deal even more damage!


Wrath Enhancement Shaman Red Gem Sockets

The Stark Ametrine Icon Stark Ametrine is the main gem that you should be putting into Red Socket Icon Red Sockets on your gear, with Precise Cardinal Ruby Icon Precise Cardinal Ruby or Accurate Ametrine Icon Accurate Ametrine also being fine options if you are lacking in the Hit / Expertise departments.


Wrath Enhancement Shaman Blue Gem Sockets

One Nightmare Tear Icon Nightmare Tear is the best Blue Gem Socket Icon Blue Gem, but if you want to fill in more Blue Socket Icon Blue Sockets you should go with Balanced Dreadstone Icon Balanced Dreadstone, Vivid Eye of Zul Icon Vivid Eye of Zul, or Guardian's Dreadstone Icon Guardian's Dreadstone.


Wrath Enhancement Shaman Yellow Gem Sockets

Quick King's Amber Icon Quick King's Amber is the best non-Hit / Expertise Yellow Gem Socket Icon Yellow Gem, but you can also use extra Stark Ametrine Icon Stark Ametrine for added AoE damage potential or Accurate Ametrine Icon Accurate Ametrine, Rigid King's Amber Icon Rigid King's Amber, or Pristine Ametrine Icon Pristine Ametrine for hitting your caps.


Wrath Classic Enhancement Shaman Complete Consumable List

While we will be listing only the best consumable options below, there are a lot of slightly less powerful options that can be used to save gold if the proposed consumables are too expensive in your server.


Wrath Classic Enhancement Shaman Flasks

Flask of Endless Rage Icon Flask of Endless Rage is the recommended flask for Enhancement, and is a good option during progress on hard bosses because it does not get removed on death. If all you are concerned with is area damage, Flask of the Frost Wyrm Icon Flask of the Frost Wyrm will typically provide more.


Wrath Classic Enhancement Shaman Elixirs

Elixir of Lightning Speed Icon Elixir of Lightning Speed or Spellpower Elixir Icon Spellpower Elixir (area damage) are the best Battle Elixirs. Elixir of Mighty Thoughts Icon Elixir of Mighty Thoughts is the best Guardian elixir.


Wrath Classic Enhancement Shaman Food Buff

Fish Feast Icon Fish Feast, Poached Northern Sculpin Icon Poached Northern Sculpin, or Mega Mammoth Meal Icon Mega Mammoth Meal are the best foods available.


Wrath Classic Enhancement Shaman Potions

Potion of Speed Icon Potion of Speed is the best DPS potion, although you can also use Runic Mana Potion Icon Runic Mana Potion instead if you have Mana issues. While only one potion can be used per fight, if you use your potion just before pulling, it will start its cooldown and you will be able to use another during the fight.
