General Information

On this page, you will find a number of useful simulation results for your Elemental Shamans in World of Warcraft — Shadowlands 9.2.5.



With the advent of certain tools such as Raidbots, simulating your character has now become simple enough that we can recommend even the average player to sim their own character. It is through advanced simulations that many of the recommendations in this guide are found, and by doing your own you can easily figure out what talents you should be using with your particular gearing combination, what gear to equip, what Legendaries to equip and more. Below there is a video guiding you on how to sim your character.


A note on Racial Bonuses

The difference from worst to best race is very small. Your gear and talent choices change the value of those racials. Pick a race for how it looks, feels, and the utility it brings. If you absolutely want to pick the theoretical best race for pure single target DPS according to sims, it is Dwarf for Alliance and technically Tauren for Horde. Goblins happen to have a nice mobility tool with Rocket Jump Icon Rocket Jump, so I personally recommend them.
