Now that you have the correct talents and understand your damage rotation, it is time to step into the arena with your team. Elemental Shamans have multiple burst cooldowns with unrelenting sustained damage. Team composition in 2v2 or 3v3 Arena is very important, because not all classes work well together. Here, we give you the best compositions you can have for your Elemental Shaman (i.e., the best classes to pair with it).

This page is part of our Elemental Shaman PvP Guide.


2v2 Arena

Elemental Shaman are currently one of the best casters for 2v2, due to its multiple burst windows, and Lightning Lasso Icon Lightning Lasso's crowd-control and damage.

The general strategy is to use crowd-control on the healer while using Lightning Lasso Icon Lightning Lasso on the DPS target to create significant pressure. Using the above burst rotation, into Lightning Lasso will force the enemy team to use cooldowns and eventually lead to a kill. Lightning Lasso Icon Lightning Lasso can also be used as a defensive cooldown, and help you kite and reposition.

Here is a list of the best team compositions for 2v2:


3v3 Arena

Elemental Shaman's role in 3v3 Arena is to line up crowd-control on the enemy team with the use of Lightning Lasso Icon Lightning Lasso. This provides pressure, and crowd-control on the kill target which cannot be dispelled. Elemental Shaman also have their burst through the use of Stormkeeper Icon Stormkeeper along with Echoing Shock Icon Echoing Shock and Earth Shock Icon Earth Shock/Lava Burst Icon Lava Burst to line up damage with their teammates. We also provide utility to the team by interrupting the enemy with Wind Shear Icon Wind Shear, and by using totems like Grounding Totem Icon Grounding Totem and Tremor Totem Icon Tremor Totem to stop the enemy team's crowd-control.

Here is a list of the best team compositions for 3v3:
