General Information

On this page, we list the best gems, enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Enhancement Shaman in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.2.5. We also give budget alternatives.


Best Gems for Enhancement Shaman

You should always be using one Leviathan's Eye of Agility Icon Leviathan's Eye of Agility in a socket, and Quick Sand Spinel Icon Quick Sand Spinel in all other sockets.


Primal Primer Builds

You should always be using one Leviathan's Eye of Agility Icon Leviathan's Eye of Agility in a socket, and Masterful Sea Currant Icon Masterful Sea Currant in all other sockets.


Best Enchants for Enhancement Shaman

Slot Enchantment

Mastery enchants are used when playing with Primal Primer Icon Primal Primer, but in all other situations Haste is what should be used. You may however find small deviations to this rule in personal simulations, and if that occurs, you should follow those results.

Note that you want one of each of these Weapon enchants, rather than doubling up on them. It does not matter which hand you place which enchant on. Force Multiplier should be used as a substitute for Masterful Navigation in most cases as it is a more versatile option, but will fall off with better gear so always make sure to simulate your character to catch this happening.


Consumables for Enhancement Shaman


Best Flasks and Potions for Enhancement

Greater Flask of the Currents Icon Greater Flask of the Currents should be used as your flask.

Potions now have three separate options depending on the situation:

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


Best Food for Enhancement

Currently, using Famine Evaluator And Snack Table Icon Famine Evaluator And Snack Table is the ideal choice. Alternatively, you can use the secondary foods Baked Port Tato Icon Baked Port Tato for Haste or Abyssal-Fried Rissole Icon Abyssal-Fried Rissole for Mastery.


Augment Runes for Enhancement

If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Rune Icon Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
