Enhancement Shaman in the Current Meta

Enhancement Shamans have flown under the radar as far as damage goes. Although their sustained damage is low, what makes them scary is how strong their burst is with Doom Winds Icon Doom Winds. With tools such as strong self-healing with Healing Surge Icon Healing Surge, Purge Icon Purge to dispel important enemy buffs, and Heroism Icon Heroism/Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust being able to be used in Arenas, they are certainly a threat to any class.


Strengths of Enhancement Shaman


Weaknesses of Enhancement Shaman

  • Single defensive cooldown
  • Damage is dependent on uptime
  • Healing is limited by Mana and dependent on uptime
  • Few mobility cooldowns
  • Predictable burst damage
