Choosing your gear carefully is important for your Elemental Shaman in PvP. We give you a stat priority to help you choose items with the right stats, followed by advice on how to choose the rest of your gear and your trinkets.

This page is part of our Elemental Shaman PvP Guide.


Stat Priority for Elemental Shamans in PvP

The stat priority for Elemental Shamans in PvP is as follows:

  1. Intellect;
  2. Versatility;
  3. Haste;
  4. Mastery;
  5. Critical Strike;

Versatility is the best stat due to the increased survivability and overall damage. The scaling is amplified by Master of the Elements Icon Master of the Elements, and Skyfury Totem Icon Skyfury Totem when you critically strike.

Recommendaed Items

Crimson Gladiator's Badge of Ferocity Icon Crimson Gladiator's Badge of Ferocity is a great on-use trinket to have to have. The on-use increased primary stat will give a temporary boost of damage which can be used with your offensive cooldowns.
