Enchants, Gems and Consumables for Elemental Shaman

This section specifically covers the optimal gems, enchants, food, and flasks to use for your character. To get a more detailed rundown of the different stats for Elemental Shaman, please visit our dedicated Stats page.


Important note on Domination Shards

Domination Shards will NOT work outside of Korthia, The Maw, and Torghast and are therefore largely obsolete in Patch 9.2.


Best Gems for Elemental Shaman

You should use Versatile Jewel Cluster Icon Versatile Jewel Cluster or Quick Jewel Cluster Icon Quick Jewel Cluster depending on what your character is lacking. If those are a bit expensive, you can use the cheaper Versatile Jewel Doublet Icon Versatile Jewel Doublet or Quick Jewel Doublet Icon Quick Jewel Doublet.


Best Enchants for Elemental Shaman

Slot Enchantment

Consumables for Elemental Shaman


Weapon Oil for Elemental Shaman

In almost every situation, you will want to use Shadowcore Oil Icon Shadowcore Oil on your weapon, although Embalmer's Oil Icon Embalmer's Oil might be worth using in solo content or for PvP.

Best Flasks and Potions for Elemental Shaman

Potion of Deathly Fixation Icon Potion of Deathly Fixation is supposed to be the best potion for pure single-target but is currently pretty much neck and neck with Potion of Spectral Intellect Icon Potion of Spectral Intellect which should be used as your potion in all multi-target situations.

Spectral Flask of Power Icon Spectral Flask of Power should be used as your flask of choice. Eternal Cauldron Icon Eternal Cauldrons are equivalent.

Use both Healthstone Icon Healthstone and Spiritual Healing Potion Icon Spiritual Healing Potions or the stronger Cosmic Healing Potion Icon Cosmic Healing Potions when you are in danger of dying.


Best Food for Elemental

You should eat from the Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism Icon Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism when possible, and otherwise Steak a la Mode Icon Steak a la Mode or Tenebrous Crown Roast Aspic Icon Tenebrous Crown Roast Aspic are the best individual foods.


Augment Rune for Elemental Shaman

If you can afford it, you should use Veiled Augment Rune Icon Veiled Augment Runes or the stronger Eternal Augment Rune Icon Eternal Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
