Best Gems for Enhancement Shaman

Depending on your talent build, your gem selections will be slightly different:

3.

Best Enchants for Enhancement Shaman

Note that due to varying qualities and prices likely being high at launch for many strong enchants that may impact their strength, it could be worthwhile to instead use an appropriate "Writ" enchant rather than a "Devotion", so long as the effect is the same.

Slot Enchantment
Weapon (main-hand)
Weapon (off-hand)
Cloak
Chest
Legs
Bracers
Boots
Rings

In Dragonflight currently we double up on Enchant Weapon - Sophic Devotion Icon Enchant Weapon - Sophic Devotion, or the cheaper Enchant Weapon - Sophic Writ Icon Enchant Weapon - Sophic Writ. Physical builds can opt to take Enchant Ring - Devotion of Haste Icon Enchant Ring - Devotion of Haste instead.

Consumables for Enhancement Shaman

4.1.

Best Phials and Potions for Enhancement Shaman

There is currently three separate options for your Phial of choice depending on the situation, but remember, there are no cauldrons providing phials in Dragonflight so you must supply your own:

  • Phial of Elemental Chaos Icon Phial of Elemental Chaos — the most reliable option for most situations, providing a cycling flat buff to one of your secondary stats at all times.
  • Phial of Glacial Fury Icon Phial of Glacial Fury — very potent in Mythic+ and AoE encounters, providing a large amount of bonus damage so long as you can maintain the effect.
  • Phial of Static Empowerment Icon Phial of Static Empowerment — theoretically the strongest choice, but the downside to the effect means it is unrealistic to use it most of the time, but still an option.

Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power Icon Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power (or the cheaper Elemental Potion of Power Icon Elemental Potion of Power variant) is your recommended potion in all situations. These potions can also be obtained from a Potion Cauldron of Ultimate Power Icon Potion Cauldron of Ultimate Power/Potion Cauldron of Power Icon Potion Cauldron of Power, so long as you have five Primal Chaos Icon Primal Chaos to convert into potions.

Refreshing Healing Potion Icon Refreshing Healing Potion is the healing potion of choice. Using this has a 5-minute cooldown, but multiple can be consumed in an extended boss fight should it go on long enough. You can also use Potion of Withering Vitality Icon Potion of Withering Vitality in emergencies, but be wary of how much damage it deals after being used.

Additionally, Warlock's Healthstone Icon Healthstones do not share a cooldown with other healing consumables. Remember to use it as well if you are holding one!

Lastly, Alchemy has some more niche potions that can be used even if you are dead. Keeping some Residual Neural Channeling Agent Icon Residual Neural Channeling Agent handy in case you need to wait for a battle resurrection can be useful to still get value out of your potion cooldown should you die early.

4.2.

Best Food for Enhancement Shaman

Whenever possible if a feast is available, use the one provided in your group (Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak Icon Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak for example). Alternatively for personal food, Fated Fortune Cookie Icon Fated Fortune Cookie or Sizzling Seafood Medley Icon Sizzling Seafood Medley should be used.

4.3.

Additional, Optional Consumables for Enhancement Shaman

Unfortunately due to the Enhancement imbue system, we have no access to the additional weapon rune consumables. This is because Windfury Weapon Icon Windfury Weapon and Flametongue Weapon Icon Flametongue Weapon overwrite them, so save some money and do not worry about them!

4.4.

Augment Runes for Enhancement Shaman

In addition, if you can afford it, you should use Draconic Augment Rune Icon Draconic Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of the consumable runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
