General Information

On this page, we go over the new Essence system in Patch 8.2 of World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth, and we tell you which are the best essences to use as Elemental Shaman, both for minor and major powers. Please refer to our Patch 8.2 Guide to Essences for more information about the Essence system and where Essences can be obtained from.

1. Azerite Essences for Elemental Shamans

Introduced in Patch 8.2, Essences are unique items that drop from various forms of content. They are activated through your Heart of Azeroth Icon Heart of Azeroth, and they buff your character in various ways, depending on the Essences that are currently active.

Our Essence Guide has a full list of all the Essences, together with their descriptions and explanations on how they work.

What follows on this page will relate directly to how Essences affect this spec, since generic information is beyond the scope of this guide.

Disclaimer: Please note that at the moment, simulations and general theorycrafting around Essences is a work in progress, and as a result, most of the recommendations made here are subject to change.

2. Elemental Shaman Essences

We currently recommend using Condensed Life-Force Icon Condensed Life-Force as your major essence, The Crucible of Flame Icon The Crucible of Flame as your minor, with either Worldvein Resonance Icon Worldvein Resonance or Conflict and Strife Icon Conflict and Strife.
