Enchants, Gems and Consumables for Enhancement Shaman

This section specifically covers the optimal gems, enchants, food, and flasks to use for 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

Due to secondary stat diminishing returns, your gems may fluctuate depending on what is currently present on your gear. However, the most likely ideal choice is Quick Jewel Cluster Icon Quick Jewel Cluster (or the cheaper Quick Jewel Doublet Icon Quick Jewel Doublet) for extra Haste.

This can shift when you reach the breakpoint for secondary stat suppression at 30% (roughly 1050 rating) for any stat though, so when you start to reach these points it is strongly recommended to sim your character and see if you should change your choices.


Best Enchants for Enhancement Shaman

Slot Enchantment
Main Hand
Off Hand

For AoE situations you can swap out your Enchant Weapon - Sinful Revelation Icon Enchant Weapon - Sinful Revelation enchant for Enchant Weapon - Lightless Force Icon Enchant Weapon - Lightless Force. It does not matter which weapon has which enchant, but always try to maintain one copy of Enchant Weapon - Celestial Guidance Icon Enchant Weapon - Celestial Guidance.

Cloak enchants are mostly personal choice, but Avoidance is a solid stat due to our reduced survivability. Enchant Chest - Eternal Stats Icon Enchant Chest - Eternal Stats is also a good chest enchant alternative if you want to focus less on exclusively single-target.


Consumables for Enhancement Shaman


Best Flasks and Potions for Enhancement

Spectral Flask of Power Icon Spectral Flask of Power should be used as your flask.

Potion of Spectral Agility Icon Potion of Spectral Agility is your damage potion of choice.

Cosmic Healing Potion Icon Cosmic Healing Potion is the healing potion of choice.

Weapon Oils are not available to Enhancement Shaman due to our weapon imbues, Windfury Weapon Icon Windfury Weapon and Flametongue Weapon Icon Flametongue Weapon, overwriting them, so should be avoided.


Best Food for Enhancement

Currently, whenever possible, you should use the Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism Icon Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism, if provided by your group. Alternatively, if using your own food, you should be using the Haste food Tenebrous Crown Roast Aspic Icon Tenebrous Crown Roast Aspic (though this may vary slightly depending on your gear).


Augment Runes for Enhancement

If you can afford it, you should use Veiled Augment Rune Icon Veiled Augment Runes (or the permanent Eternal Augment Rune Icon Eternal Augment Rune) 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.
