Enchants, Gems and Consumables for Enhancement Shaman
This section covers the optimal gems, enchants, food, potions, and phials to use with your character. To get a more detailed rundown of the different stats for Enhancement Shaman, please visit our dedicated Stats page.
Best Gems for Enhancement Shaman
Depending on your talent build, your gem selections will be slightly different:
- Elementalist builds prioritize one Skillful Illimited Diamond in your first socket, and Keen Neltharite in all others. Sensei's Sundered Onyx can be used as a cheaper alternative.
- Physical builds prioritize one Fierce Illimited Diamond in your first socket, and Keen Ysemerald in all others. Crafty Queen's Ruby can be used as a cheaper alternative.
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.
Consumables for Enhancement Shaman
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 — 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 — 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 — 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 (or the cheaper 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/ Potion Cauldron of Power, so long as you have five Primal Chaos to convert into potions.
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 in emergencies, but be wary of how much damage it deals after being used.
Additionally, Warlock's 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 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.
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 for example). Alternatively for personal food, Fated Fortune Cookie or Sizzling Seafood Medley should be used.
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 and Flametongue Weapon overwrite them, so save some money and do not worry about them!
Augment Runes for Enhancement Shaman
In addition, if you can afford it, you should use 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.
