Gearing Strategy for Enhancement Shamans for Molten Core / Onyxia's Lair

Before we get into the list itself, we will explain two essential concepts for gearing: weapon skill and the Hit cap.

As explained in our Enhancement Shaman Weapon Skill guide, the difference between only having the baseline 300 weapon skill at Level 60 or 305 weapon skill or above is extremely significant for Enhancement DPS, as white hits (which have a 40% chance to glance against Level 63+ enemies) provide the majority of your damage and deal a lot more damage at 305 weapon skill. You will also benefit from a 6% Hit cap, instead of the usual 9%.

Because you want to be using two-handed weapons for their higher DPS, the main way you can achieve 305 weapon skill is by having rolled an Orc Shaman, in which case you should focus on using our recommended axes above other any other weapons when attacking raid bosses and other Level 63+ enemies.

Shamans Tier 1, The Earthfury is meant for Healing Shamans, and as such the only relevant bonus for us is the 3-piece one, which can save you a talent point in Totemic Mastery Icon Totemic Mastery.

Finally, sets such as Devilsaur and Black Dragonscale have extremely powerful set bonuses which you should take advantage of. The individual pieces tend to be much weaker when not considered in the light of the set bonus, so try to use them all together.
