Elemental Shaman Spell Summary

If you are new to Elemental, it is recommended you read this before proceeding! In this section, we will discuss what abilities you have, what they are used for within the specialization, and how they interact with important cooldowns. If you have played this spec before or have already achieved a level of comfort playing this spec in a practical environment, it is recommended you skip this section and move on to the rest of the guide.

2.

Main Resource for Elemental Shaman

Maelstrom is the primary resource of Elemental Shamans. Maelstrom is essentially a clone of the Rage resource Warriors use. It is generated by casting spells and using specific abilities, while other abilities covert Maelstrom into powerful damage. Maelstrom is generated and consumed fairly slowly for Elemental, which makes the rotational priority very easy to predict and contributes to a fluid state of play.

Note that this page simply lists all the different abilities, assuming you are at max level. If you are leveling, check out our dedicated Shaman Leveling page, which has detailed information on when you unlock all of these abilities.

Baseline abilities for Elemental Shaman

These abilities are available no matter what talents you chose and form the bread and butter of this specialization.

Ability Abbreviation Description/Effect
Lightning Bolt Icon Lightning Bolt LB Your main filler. It deals decent damage and generates 8 Maelstrom. It can become quite strong with a Lightning-focused build.
Flame Shock Icon Flame Shock FS A damage-over-time spell you should keep applied to your primary target at all times. It deals weak damage over time but has an important interaction with your Lava Burst Icon Lava Burst: it guarantees that all Lava Burst casts will be critical hits. Flame Shock has no Maelstrom cost but has a 6-second cooldown.
Healing Surge Icon Healing Surge - Heals for a significant amount with a fast cast time. It costs 10% of your base Mana pool. Do not hesitate to use it on yourself or others. Particularly useful for solo content, especially with the Swelling Waves Icon Swelling Waves War Mode talent.
Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust/Heroism Icon Heroism BL Formerly the signature Shaman cooldown, increasing the haste of all your party and raid members by 30% for 40 seconds, with a 5-minute cooldown. Presently available to Mage, Hunter, and now Evoker as well.
Reincarnation Icon Reincarnation Ankh A passive ability allowing you to raise from the dead with 40% of your Health and Mana. This has a 30-minute cooldown, which does not reset on wipe. This is a unique and incredibly powerful ability when it is available.
Earthbind Totem Icon Earthbind Totem - Projects a totem that slows everything around it by 50% for 20 seconds. Very useful, especially if you kite around the totem.
Lightning Shield Icon Lightning Shield - A maintenance buff that needs to be refreshed every 30 minutes for fights where there is a risk of getting hit in melee. When hit, you generate 5 Maelstrom and deal minor damage. It only stacks with Earth Shield Icon Earth Shield if you have the Elemental Orbit Icon Elemental Orbit class talent, so keep that in mind for solo play in particular.
Flametongue Weapon Icon Flametongue Weapon - Technically part of our arsenal, but only actually used if you are also using the Improved Flametongue Weapon Icon Improved Flametongue Weapon talent.
Primal Strike Icon Primal Strike - You will never use this. Take it off your bars.
Ghost Wolf Icon Ghost Wolf - Transforms you into a wolf, preventing you from casting but increasing your movement speed by 30% as long as you stay in this form. In addition, your movement speed cannot go below 100% while in this form.
Ancestral Spirit Icon Ancestral Spirit - Allows you to resurrect allies after a very long cast. It is not usable in combat.
Astral Recall Icon Astral Recall - Is essentially a second Hearthstone Icon Hearthstone charge, with a 10-minute cooldown. It is still linked to your Hearthstone, and you can only use this to teleport back to the location you picked with your Hearthstone.
Far Sight Icon Far Sight - Is one of the least useful spells in the game; it allows you to see at a distance. You can safely remove this from your bars.
Water Walking Icon Water Walking - Allows you or whoever you target to walk on water as long as no damage is taken.

For more information on how to use these abilities together in your rotation, please read our rotation page.

Once you reach the max level, it can be somewhat overwhelming to completely change the way you play by suddenly implementing a large number of addons in a short space of time, especially if they have a heavy visual impact on your UI. We recommend using some of the more basic addons recommended on our Addons Page below while leveling so that you have more time to get used to them during the easier phases of playing your class. You will want at least some of our Macros as well!
