It is important to choose the correct Covenant, as it has many impacts on your gameplay. Your Covenant will give you both a Covenant ability and a class ability. The next choice you have will be Soulbinds and Conduits. All of these are Covenant-specific and they are different based on which you choose. Here are the best Covenants for Enhancement Shaman.

  1. Venthyr is the best Covenant you can choose. This gives you a huge offensive cooldown (Chain Harvest Icon Chain Harvest), huge team healing, and offers good defensive Soulbinds. It also provides a teleport ability, which can be used to secure crowd-control. Some of the Soulbinds also provide damage reduction and absorption shields.

Doom Winds Icon Doom Winds allows you to do significant damage with your Stormstrike Icon Stormstrike, Sundering Icon Sundering, Crash Lightning Icon Crash Lightning, and your auto-attacks each proccing Windfury Weapon Icon Windfury Weapon. Combining this with other offensive cooldowns can do devastating amounts of damage but also forecast to the enemy team you are bursting.
  2. Earthen Harmony Icon Earthen Harmony, even though a Restoration Shaman Legendary, provides significant healing for you or your teammates, since Earth Shield Icon Earth Shield can be applied on them.
