On this page, you will find the best pre-raid gear for Enhancement Shaman in WotLK Classic.


Enhancement Shaman Pre-Raid Best in Slot List

This is the pre-raid gear we recommend for Enhancement Shamans. That does not mean you are required to have this gear to start raiding, but instead that this is a list of non-raid items that are strong choices, and thus that you should use to make your gear stronger while not raiding.

The gear choices in the tables below follow our stat guide priority.

Some of the listed gear can be expensive to get, or time consuming to obtain in the case of dungeon gear, so do not be afraid of going straight into raiding at 80, as entry raids are extremely easy, even when done with questing gear!

In Phase 4, Titan Rune Dungeons bosses drop Emblem of Triumph Icon Emblem of Triumph and Defiler's Scourgestone, which can be traded for Sidereal Essence Icon Sidereal Essence on a one-to-one basis. With these currencies you will be able to get some incredibly powerful gear relatively quickly, such as the 245 item level version of Reign of the Dead Icon Reign of the Dead and 252 item level Comet's Trail Icon Comet's Trail, or as many Trophy of the Crusade Icon Trophy of the Crusade for 245 item level tier 9 pieces as you wish.


Wrath Classic Elemental Shaman Tier 9 Set

Elemental Shaman Tier 9, Nobundo's or Thrall's Battlegear, is obtained by buying its individual pieces with Emblem of Triumph Icon Emblem of Triumph (and a Trophy of the Crusade Icon Trophy of the Crusade for item level 245 pieces).

Its set bonuses are:

  • 2 pieces — increases the chance Static Shock IconStatic Shock triggers by 3%. This is a small damage increase but also a quality of life decrease due to the need to refresh Lightning Shield IconLightning Shield more often;
  • 4 pieces — increases the damage done by your Earth Shock IconEarth Shock, Flame Shock IconFlame Shock, and Frost Shock IconFrost Shock spells by 25%. This is a another small and straightforward damage increase.

You will want to get the 2-piece and, especially, the 4-piece bonus as soon as possible.
