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) 8.1.5. We also give budget alternatives.

1. Best Gems for Enhancement Shaman

You should use Quick Owlseye Icon Quick Owlseye (or the cheaper Quick Golden Beryl Icon Quick Golden Beryl) in all sockets.

1.1. Primal Primer Builds

You should use Masterful Tidal Amethyst Icon Masterful Tidal Amethyst (or the cheaper Masterful Kubiline Icon Masterful Kubiline) in all sockets.

2. 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.

3. Consumables for Enhancement Shaman

3.1. Best Flasks and Potions for Enhancement

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

Battle Potion of Agility Icon Battle Potion of Agility is the DPS potion of choice for Enhancement in all situations currently. Coastal Healing Potion Icon Coastal Healing Potion is the healing potion of choice.

3.2. Best Food for Enhancement

Currently, using Sanguinated Feast Icon Sanguinated Feast is the ideal choice (or the single use Boralus Blood Sausage Icon Boralus Blood Sausage), but can be outscaled by the Mastery food Sailor's Pie Icon Sailor's Pie (or the cheaper Loa Loaf Icon Loa Loaf) when using Primal Primer.

3.3. 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.
