Nature Resistance Gear for Elemental Shamans

While doing AQ40, you may benefit from using some Nature Resistance (NR) gear, especially for Princess Huhuran and Viscidus. The pieces we list below are the ones that grant significant Nature Resistance and do not drop from raids.

Because NR gear has low or no other stats in general, prioritize using your best normal gear pieces along with some NR gear, in order to achieve a balanced setup with 140+ NR unbuffed. Depending on your guild, you might not even need any of this gear if you can burn down the boss or are not assigned as one of the soakers / freezers.

Whenever you loot raid gear with Nature Resistance on it, make sure to use it, as that gear has significant NR and other stats, usually Stamina.

Gear such as Sylvan Crown Icon Sylvan Crown, Sylvan Shoulders Icon Sylvan Shoulders and Sylvan Vest Icon Sylvan Vest will only be released with Phase 6, as it is intended as catch-up gear for players trying to clear AQ40 during the Naxxramas patch. Use green gear of Nature Resistance, meanwhile, on the non-chest slots, where Sandstalker Breastplate Icon Sandstalker Breastplate is available.
