Enhancement Shaman DPS Gems, Enchants, and Consumables — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.2
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. We also give budget alternatives.
1. Best Gems for Enhancement Shaman
1.1. Primal Primer Builds
2. Best Enchants for Enhancement Shaman
Mastery enchants are used when playing with 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.
3. Consumables for Enhancement Shaman
3.1. Best Flasks and Potions for Enhancement
Greater Flask of the Currents should be used as your flask.
Potions now have three separate options depending on the situation:
- Potion of Focused Resolve on purely single target encounters.
- Superior Battle Potion of Agility on cleave encounters.
- Potion of Empowered Proximity in AoE situations with 4 or more targets.
Abyssal Healing Potion is the healing potion of choice.
3.2. Best Food for Enhancement
3.3. Augment Runes for Enhancement
If you can afford it, you should use 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.
