World Buffs

World buffs have at least one hour of duration and are not related to any profession. Generally, these are buffs that you will try to get immediately before doing a raid. As some of them are applied to every nearby player of your faction, it can be a good idea for your realm's guilds to plan dates and times to activate them, so that all guilds can raid immediately after and reap the benefits of the buffs.

  • Warchief's Blessing Icon Warchief's Blessing (Horde only) increases your max health by 300, your melee Haste by 15%, and your Mana per 5 seconds by 10. Everyone in Orgrimmar will receive this buff once someone turns in the Head of Rend Blackhand Icon Head of Rend Blackhand, which drops off of Warchief Rend Blackhand in Upper Blackrock Spire.
  • Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer Icon Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer increases your chance to critically hit with spells by 10%, with melee or ranged attacks by 5%, and your attack power by 140. Everyone in Stormwind or Orgrimmar will receive this buff once someone turns in the Head of Onyxia Icon Head of Onyxia, which drops off of Onyxia in Onyxia's Lair, or Head of Nefarian Icon Head of Nefarian/Head of Nefarian Icon Head of Nefarian, which drops from Nefarian in Blackwing Lair. They are the exact same buff and they do not stack.
  • Songflower Serenade Icon Songflower Serenade grants 5% extra Critical Strike Chance and 15 extra points to all stats for 1 hour. To be able to receive this, you must first complete the Cleansing Felwood quest, after which you can do some repeatable quests that grant Cenarion Plant Salve Icon Cenarion Plant Salve. Use this item on a Corrupted Songflower in Felwood and loot the cleansed plant to gain the buff.
  • Resist Fire Icon Resist Fire grants 83 Fire Resistance for one hour. To gain this buff, have a Priest first use Mind Control Icon Mind Control on a Scarshield Spellbinder inside Upper Blackrock Spire, and then proceed to cast this spell on the desired party / raid members.
  • Fengus' Ferocity IconFengus' Ferocity, Mol'dar's Moxie IconMol'dar's Moxie, and Slip'kik's Savvy IconSlip'kik's Savvy are all 2-hour buffs that can be obtained from Dire Maul North by talking to the various ogre bosses after successfully completing a tribute run. You do not actually need to complete the run yourself, you just need to run into an instance where a run was completed and talk to Guard Fengus, Guard Mol'dar, and Guard Slip'kik. The buffs will give you 200 AP, 15% Stamina, and 3% spell crit chance, respectively.
  • Spirit of Zandalar IconSpirit of Zandalar increases all of your primary stats by 15% and your movement speed by 10% for 2 hours. This buff works the same way as the Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer Icon Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer, but is gained from being in Booty Bay when someone turns in the Heart of Hakkar Icon Heart of Hakkar from Hakkar in Zul'Gurub.
  • Finally, whenever the Darkmoon Faire is active, talk to the fortune teller Sayge in the Faire grounds to get a 10% damage buff (answer all questions with the first option) or, with different answers, a 10% stat buff to a specific stat or +25 to all resistances.

Best Consumables for Enhancement Shamans

Maximizing your performance in WoW Classic is all about consumables. There are a lot of them (usually they stack) and using them all can have a bigger impact than a full tier of gear upgrades.

Despite this, getting all of the consumables we will mention in this page is extremely expensive, and as such, we will provide a quick list of the best, cheapest and most reliable consumables first, ordered by the priority you should use and buy them in. Enhancement Shamans can easily struggle with Mana if they are Totem Twisting, therefore using Mana regeneration consumables is very important in this case.

  1. Major Mana Potion Icon Major Mana Potions, Demonic Rune Icon Demonic Runes and Dark Rune Icon Dark Runes (these will ease your Mana concerns);
  2. Nightfin Soup Icon Nightfin Soup (cheap for the amount of Mp5 they grant);
  3. Heavy Runecloth Bandage Icon Heavy Runecloth Bandage (very cheap, can easily save your life in an emergency);
  4. Elixir of the Mongoose Icon Elixir of the Mongoose (very powerful for its cost);
  5. Elixir of Giants Icon Elixir of Giants (weaker than mongoose, but cheaper);
  6. Smoked Desert Dumplings Icon Smoked Desert Dumplings (expensive, but strong);
  7. Greater Fire Protection Potion Icon Greater Fire Protection Potion / Fire Protection Potion Icon Fire Protection Potion for Fire damage bosses;
  8. Greater Nature Protection Potion Icon Greater Nature Protection Potion / Nature Protection Potion Icon Nature Protection Potion for Nature damage bosses;
  9. Greater Shadow Protection Potion Icon Greater Shadow Protection Potion / Shadow Protection Potion Icon Shadow Protection Potion for Shadow damage bosses;
  10. Greater Frost Protection Potion Icon Greater Frost Protection Potion / Frost Protection Potion Icon Frost Protection Potion for Frost damage bosses.

Health and Mana Recovery Consumables for Enhancement Shamans

Potions all share a cooldown in Classic. You cannot use multiple potions at the same time, and when you use a potion, it will start the cooldown for all potions.

  • Major Mana Potion Icon Major Mana Potion restores Mana when used. Crafted through Alchemy.

  • Dark Rune Icon Dark Rune also restores Mana at the cost of health, but is not bind on pickup, meaning it can be bought from other players. You can farm it in Scholomance.

  • Mageblood Potion Icon Mageblood Potion regenerates 12 Mana every 5 seconds for 1 hour and is crafted through Alchemy.

4.3.

Fire Resistance Consumables for Enhancement Shamans

  • Greater Fire Protection Potion Icon Greater Fire Protection Potion (and the weaker / cheaper Fire Protection Potion Icon Fire Protection Potion) gives you a buff that absorbs a significant amount of Fire damage for one hour, but is depleted once enough damage is taken.

All types of Juju can be farmed in a party or raid group for maximum efficiency, as they drop for all players in the group when enemies are killed.

These will mostly be useful during early Molten Core progression, especially on Ragnaros.

Nature Resistance Consumables for Enhancement Shamans

4.6.
